We came to Banos to stay 3 nights ended up staying 6. This hostel is a nice quiet place just off the main area. The price is unbeatable for what you get. We had a huge room with plenty of space. The kitchen is well equipped and the common area is big and has movies/tv for visitors to watch. They...

The owner was extremely friendly and helpful. He let me park my car in the carport and had exceptional knowledge of the local area. Despite the language barrier we were able to communicate well. He was very patient and extremely nice. I would recommend this stay to anyone going to Baños. $10/person per night is hard to beat for warm...

Upon the recommendation of a friend we stayed here. One of the best places I've stayed, rooms were inexpensive and clean, common areas were spacious and fun! Great place to meet people. Centrally located so you can walk to all the Baños attractions. I liked the quiet, no party rules after 10:00. Made for a quiet place to sleep even...

Staff speaks English among other languages. The rooms and common areas are very clean and secure. Friendly staff helps you plan activities and find your way around Banos. Everyone at the hostal is very friendly. I would recommend this hostal to my friends and family when visiting Ecuador. Banos is my favorite town in Ecuador.

This is by far the nicest hostal I have been to. It has the social atmosphere of a hostel, the nighttime quietness is there still, it is super clean and the service is impeccable. We had a private room for a week, me and my gf. Original plan was 3 days, we just couldn't leave. There is no food servings...

I've stayed here for 3 nights. The owner Victor gave me information about everything to do in and around baños. I don't speak spanish so he was very patient with me. Super super friendly they are. The hostel is clean and small which makes it very personal. It's not far away from town center, but far enough to not here...
