One street away from nightlife street Many great food options near Great location to set hikes for sightseeing WiFi was working and good enough to place what’sapp calls, check news, etc. Shower was good..hot/cold water Rooms/bathroom are a bit outdated but clean... this is a hostal. There was a kitchen and others used it each morning to cook, make coffee etc. Owner lady speaks English good enough and is very knowledgeable. Great to ask questions before you set out. She gave great tips. We spent three full days in Banos and were able to do all the main attractions. Friday nights are wild.

Spacious rooms relative to standard, clean, good breakfast. The location is excellent, minutes from downtown. Everything is accessible and close. The staff is very responsive and high quality. We enjoyed every moment. Instead, they were able to advise and organize the rabbi's attraction in the area. The owner is a lovely man and has a high service consciousness
