I stayed here based on a recommendation from people I met before I reached Puyo. Its not in central Puyo (I walked in to the centre in 15 mins) or a 1 dollar cab ride away. The setting is beautiful next to a small river beside the botanic gardens. Staff didn't speak English which with my limited Spanish could've been difficult.I found the staff though tried their best to be helpful and also tried to help me when I explained to them special dietary needs. I usually prefer to eat out than in a hotel but what they made for me was fine (quinoa soup included).
It was $35 for a room and the meal (2 courses) was $12.
However there was 1 thing that really counts against this place in my view. Just across the bridge over the river are a couple of bars. This was a Tuesday night and the music thundered on until 3 am. The rooms need to be given some sound proofing as any chance of a decent night's sleep was ruined. A shame since as I said the staff were lovely. However on the most basic of levels the objectives of accommodation are firstly to provide secure shelter and also somewhere that allows sleep and rest. It failed on the 2nd of these I am afraid.
In the center of town this place is probably the best value for money. It's pretty cheap and breakfast is included. Each floor is a different place with it more expensive the higher you go. The beds are clean and comfortable and one I stayed in had a mirror on the ceiling above the bed. Most rooms are en-suite (v basic) with hot water more often than not. There is nearly always vacancies and is well worth a visit.
The downside is that there is no real social-area to meet other travellers, but this is hard to find in Puyo most rooms have TV so who needs other people!
