Hostal Limoncocha
Ranked #11 of 33 Specialty Lodging in Tena
Reviewed May 16, 2013

The view from Limoncocha is great but the location itself isn't ideal - the main part of town is quite a walk, there are some restaurants/shops nearby but nothing like those in the centre of Tena. The rooms are clean, if a little dark. Good laundry facility, breakfast available (although a little expensive for what it is). Rooms are nice and clean with good shared facillities.

Danke für ihre Bewertung...
Wollte nur sagen unser Früchstück kostet 3 $... Cafe oder Tee butter, mermelada, 2 Brötchen, saft ein grosses Glas, 2 Eier also bitte 3 $ ist das viel. Für einen dollar mehr gibt es noch einen fruchtsalat dazu mit jogurt und granola, was will man mehr. Das Früchstückt heisst ALEMAN. Es gibt supermärkte und Gemüsemarkt ganz in der nähe und die bushaltestelle ist auch nur 300 meter entfernt. Busse nach Misahualli fahren bei mir um die ecke ab.
Eine gemeischaftküche haben wir auch!
Wifi in jedem Zimmer. Hängematten zum abliegen oder sonnen.
Kalte Getränke gibt es auch...
Zimmerpreis von 7 bis 12 dollar
Bei mir sind sie immer herzlich,s wilkommen.. Euer Limoncocha Team

This was a good hotel, walking distance to the town. The rooms were spacious and it was nice having a veranda and nice views of the city with great sunset views. They also offered breakfast (extra), but we did not purchase. They provided a kitchen, so we used that to cook some of our meals. The accomodations were good and the host was helpful. I would recommend this hostel if you are in Tena.

I was a very big fan of the price- 6 USD for a 4 bed dorm (I was the only one though) and shared bathroom and the hammocks in the terrace. However, the hostel was located farm from town and all of the outdoor booking agents (aside from the one in the hostel). The staff was helpful when I asked questions, but in a very unfriendly way. Overall, I wasn't very comfortable and felt far away from town.

Jeder hat sich mal ein Urlaub verdient, so kann man nicht immer da sein und sich um die Turisten kümmer. Mein Hotel ist nur 300 von der bushaltestelle weg und 150 meter von der bushaltestelle nach Misahualli, supermarkt ist gerade um die ecke und der Mark ist auch nicht weit weg. die bak ist 500 meter endfernt also was braucht man mehr, mache leute ticken eben anderst.....

The best of this family owned hostal is the view overlooking the center of Tena and the good value. We just payed 7 USD p.person for a spacious room with shared bath. At the 3rd floor they have a public kitchen you can use with all the facilities you need. Cooking, overlooking the city and the jungle covered mountains was something different.
Also they offer tours into the rain forest and white water rafting tours.
Free computer and wifi was available too.

I stayed here for a couple nights and thought I was going to get a pretty good place because of the lonely planet review but when I got there I felt a bit ignored and didn't like the vibe. I felt like the owner hardly looked me in the eye and the kid who was there talked short with me when I asked him really basic questions like, "is there a free room?" Didn't like that one bit. The pluses were the rooftop kitchen and the strong wifi on the lower story. Strong enough to watch videos most of the time. Clean enough, trashcans and toilet paper were not attended to enough. All in all, wouldn't stay there again.

Our family of seven visited Tena and we knew a bit of Spanish. It was easy enough to communicate with the German owner. Even though the hostel was not in downtown Tena it was safe and secure and was only a few minute walk from the center of town. We felt safe walking home at night, and when necessary it wasn't a problem for the hostel to call us a cab. The hostel was clean, fans were in the rooms which was a nice reprieve from the humidity, and laundry services were available.

We arranged our tours through the hostel and Juan was our tour guide for both the rafting trip and Ahuano Jungle tour and he was absolutely fantastic. I would highly recommend the jungle tours and rafting!

Pros: hammocks on the terrace, price, breakfast. tour agency (I did not use)
Cons: Owner seemed ambivalent to new guests, further away from center of city (10-15 min walk)

A little advice for Tena in general: If you travel solo give yourself some time to visit the tour agencies to get a rafting trip set up. This may require you giving them your anme and hostel so when they get enough rafters they will contact you. When I visited there were not very many other rafters and as a solo traveler I was turned down by 3 agencies (including Limon Cocha) because they cant take outjust one person.

Room Tip: I spent an extra 5 bucks and got my own bed and bathroom. great deal
