Really fantastic hostel. Some reviews criticize the location but the location is incredible with 10/10 views. It's only 500 metres from the road or a $1.50 taxi from the city centre. Our room (Yura) had an incredible view I'd expect to pay $100 for, not $15. Great kitchen, nice gardens and lounge, small bar, laundry service, real hostel info about the whole region available, book library. All in all, one of the best places we've stayed in south America in 4+ months. Posted January 2022!

I arrived, not exactly knowing what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. The spectacular views are paralleled, the staff was gracious and friendly. Breakfast was tasty with a voice of scrambled or fried eggs. Get a room with a balcony! I highly recommend this place and expect to stay here, again. Nashley is a wonderful hostess and Indira is charming. They will arrange amazing tours and expeditions. An overall delightful experience!

I stayed for 6 nights at this wonderfull hotel with an unpresidented view over the town and mountains. The owner and the staff are so friendly and gave the best service.
The jungle tour i took was 10/10! Fausto the guide really knew his stuff and was super friendly and helpfull. I can recommend Tena Naui for sure! Taxi only $1,50 from the toen up the hill. Super Nice kitchen and also a great breakfast for only $ 3,00.

Very nice and clean hostel. Breakfast is really good. Terrace has a nice view and it’s a great place to hang out and relax. I wouldn’t really recommend to reserve an appartement instead of a room. The rooms are cleaner and nicer. Overall very good place to stay at. They also organise tours which are nice and highly recommended!

Well, well, this is the second time I write this... but I'd like to write it again, because I was humiliated by the owers once when me and my friend were "guests" in aforesaid hostel and again via e-mail when I wrote my honest opinion.
The owners are very-very-very keen to erase every critical opinion on this forum not without humiliating their former customers.
Here is my opinion (second time):

Service: Less than half-hearted, the german guy tries, the ecuadorians don't even try. I have never been treated that rude.

Value: The prices have been increased. It is not "cheap" but "average".

Sleep Quality: Depends on how many children clean or scream or enter in your room if you don't lock the door.

Cleanliness: My dad was an alcoholic, he lived in a run-down apartment, but I must admit, his bathroom didn't have a such strong smell of urine than the one I had in "Tena Ñaui".

Location: Somewhere out of town in the ghetto on the hills surrounding Tena.

Rooms: Big and with big windows, but the beds smell like mould.

This is the same cyber mobber like in march and april 2013. Its a kind of stalking. We know that a german student using this platform with different false identities to make damage to our stuff and to the people of the rainforest. Thank god that 99,9% of the germas a very nice and kind people. The person who is behind all these strong insults to us should think about it. Our message to our german friend is "close you eyes, clear your heart and let it go".

The headline tells my first impression of the Tena Naui. I was tired when I got to this tiny mountain village called Tena. I was just looking for a quiet place to sleep and a girl at the terminal told me she was volunteering there and that the rooms are quite nice. So I took the 10 Minutes Taxi drive to the top of a mountain and checked in. The hotel is middle expensive but the rooms are large. The staff gave me a room in the second storey and I fell asleep immediately. When I woke up at about 5 (because a little child was screaming in the nearby staff room) I had this smell of used rubber in my nose. I checked the pillow and found the leftovers of the former clients. I was way to ashamed to tell the staff about it, so I put the pillow with all its content back where I found it and called a cab at 7. I can't say so much about bathrooms or kitchen. I don't even know if the offer a kitchen but I was quite happy to escape this strange smell of rubber.

I don't always prefer small dosshouses, but this time its seems they just messed with me. The prices they told me (before I decided to stay) were different (cheaper) than the exhausted prices they came up with when I had to pay.
I would recommend to negociate the prices and pay imediately.
But keep in mind: the showers are cold, the rooms are big but dusty and dirty. The beds are old and used and the interior has seen better days. The staff is grousy and tends to racist comments. The atmosphere (after complaining about all those deplorable states of affairs) was so tensed that I just couldn't stand it.

Well we reserved on hostelworld , when we got here they said they have no reservations, after they wanted to charge us more for the same room we reserved we managed to agree on a price and check in . There is not enough water . No water to shower (if 2 people wash before you)towels smelt funky . no water to clean dishes ..no water to flush toilets. Also no mosquito nets so the room was flooded with bugs . It's far from the center but a very relaxing and nice view. Also it says breakfast is included .. It is but at a charge !!

The guesthouse is located a little bit outside from Tena's City Center on a hill. If you want to walk, it takes between 15-20 minutes from the main bus station. It's a little bit strenuous and you should wear sneakers. It's better to take a taxi which costs about 1,5 $. Don't ask the taxi driver for the price because then he'll know that you're not familiar with the regular prices and will ask you for "tourist price" which is about 3-5 $.

The guesthous offers a big kitchen and terrace with a great overview over Tena Valley. Some of the rooms have that great view too, don't forget to ask for them. Since it's situated a little bit outside the city there's no noise made by cars and you nearly feel the tropical rainforest. There a lot of exotic plants in- and outside the property. Although it's close to the forest I had no problems with mosquitos.

Through the guesthouse owner it's possible to organise excursions to the rainforest e.g. to the small rain forest station Lisanyacu close to Tena (one day excursion) or to Yasuni National Park (couple of days).

This is a great place for adventurous people!!!
