This place was a great little lodge! The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are nice and clean and the breakfast was tasty! It was a little walk from the town of Misahualli but not much and we felt very safe. Anna (the owner) was very helpful. She arranged an excursion for us as well as a door to door taxi...

Amazing, one of the best hostels in Ecuador , it's location and the quite surroundings makes this to a great place for couples. You can swim in the river and the breakfast was good. We thought that Anna, the owner, seemed to be a little bit controlling at first , something that wasn't true. They were very helpful and wanted...

One of the best places to stay in the whole Ecuador, not saying about Ecuador Amazonia! Cheap, friendly, and beautifully located. Many entertainments around including wonderful Jasun Sacha Reserve (10 min drive).

We stayed here a year ago and had a good experience. This time we only stop by asking them for help to arrange a last minute tour. Carlos and Anna were super helpful and in less than 20 minutes they had a great afternoon set up for us. We took a canoe, walked in the jungle and visited a local...

It is great located directly at the river, where you can actually swim! Approximately 5 minutes walking distance to the town center with all shops. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The garden area is neat and comfortable to relax during the day. The rooms are very clean and the wifi connection is really good too. I like that...

What a beautiful place stay! The rooms are modern but simple and comfortable and very, very clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful. You can go for a swim in the river to escape the Amazons heat and humidity. It's close to town and is the perfect place to stay to disover the Amazon!

This is great hotel to just get away, hide and relax. We stayed for 2 nights. The owners are wonderful hosts. Located on the river, nice place to go rafting or just take a dip in the cool water. Rooms are very clean and well maintained. Screens on the windows with a nice breeze from the river at night. They...
