“Room with a View”
Reviewed 5 May 2013

We recently visited Hostal Los Yutzos on a short visit to Tena. We asked for a room overlooking the river. The room was spacious with an ensuite bathroom. We had a balcony overlooking the river. We had wi-fi in the room. We had breakfast included in our rate; however, we did not know that we would be charged extra for scrambled eggs...

The receptionist was very helpful and accommodating.

The gardens around the hostel were lovely.

We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a room overlooking the river. It is nice to hear the sound of the river running...

Aircon 24 hrs, wifi in the rooms, cable TV, overlooking the river (though you need to request these rooms), comfortable bed and hot shower. Breakfast is included for free but is muy basic, you'll have to request and pay more for eggs and bacon (which should actually be included for free to make this place exceptional). Still better than average but zero potential for socialising with other travellers, the place is nice but has no atmosphere. If you're looking for something to do for the day, try catching the free cable car to Los Yutzos to see some caged and uncaged animals for $2...I don't honestly know what the hell this place is other than something to do for the day in Tena, but pretty sure I shared lunch with a badger which was mucho buenos. I'd also recommend dinner at Marquis Grill as I doubt there's a better dining option in town for lovers of juicy steak.

Room Tip: Request a room facing the river - tranquillo!

This is said to be the best place to stay in Tena, and I believe it, although I haven't stayed anywhere else in Tena. It was nicer than the places we stayed in Quito or Guayaquil, even though those places were more expensive. (But it's not surprising that Tena is less expensive than those big cities.) The room was clean, large, and comfortable. The private bathroom had a good, strong shower. The breakfast was good. The employees didn't speak any English, but they were very friendly and patient enough to deal with my very limited Spanish. For a good steak dinner within walking distance, try Grill Marquis.

This was supposed to be the best hotel in Tena. It was fine, that's all a bit run down but spacious rooms with air con and a nicish view if you get a balcony room or view of the river (i don't know whether there were balcony rooms) Staff ok but they don't speak any English and the bill total was different to what they actually charged me which was more but they couldn't explain in English and i couldn't understand in Spanish and we were in a rush and so i just had to pay it and leg it for the taxi.

This little hotel is in a wonderful location by the river. You can sit on the covered patio and enjoy the day or dine in the dining room which looks right out on the river. Birds are everywhere. The bed was good, the shower fine, could not ask for more.

More hotel than traditional hostal, price and quality and location make Hostal Los Yutzos the best choice for accommodations in Tena. Clean, well appointed, spacious suites, plentiful hot water ( forget the nonsense in other hotels of no hot water required in the tropics! ), excellent breakfast ( although not included in price of room ). good location just far enough away from the center ( but an easy walk across pedestrian bridge ) I encountered no one who spoke English. However, this should be of little concern to the non-Spanish speaker, as the very competent persons at reception fully understand travelers' needs. There is gated, off-street and secure parking within the hotel compound. Base yourself here while making daytrips into the selva or as a transition point to river lodges deeper into the wilderness or simply as an overnight while traveling onward to Puyo or to Coca.

Room Tip: Chose the upper rooms ( suites ) in the back with river view from shared balcony!

Trust me, this tip will salvage your time in this part of Ecuador. Los Yutzos has Air conditioning, and not all Tena hotels/hostals do. Some very nice (and well-rated places) are fine, but lack AC. Comfort in Ec is all related to altitude and this town ain't got none. When the sun is out, it is brutally hot.
About the other stuff that tourists (like me) like.... the internet works (mostly), the place is very, very clean. And they are friendly.
For about $35 a night for a single you can't go wrong. I have been here about 8 or 9 times over 3+ years and recently have visited some other (lovely) places. Sin AC. I would have been besides myself. And I only come here in the Nov./Dec. timeframe.
Bring your ear plugs, right now it is mid night and some creature is chipping outside my window and one morning we were awakened by heavy machinery at 6:15 am.
Breakfast is fine, pay the extra for the egg upgrade ($1.50 ) i think and the Marquis Grill is the place if you are really Jonesing for that gringo food. Plus you can see sloths.

Room Tip: The rooms more in line with the office have better WiFi
