Nice hostel with great location. The only downside is there is no real common room but I still managed to make friends. Meet the dog Google!
Great location, couple blocks away from the main plaza. Staff are very friendly and they will help you out with anything. Enjoy google (the massive dog)
Owner is extremely nice. Location has views of the square and a restaurant. Great value.

Erupcion is run by Gloria, an excellent person who goes out of her way to help travelers who visit Baños. It can be a little noisy at night but it's due to its centrality in the city. I managed to sleep with no problem. I'd def recommend Erupcion. Great value. And try baniños breakfast.
noisy at night, thats the only bad thing to say.
Really nice hostel. Atmosphere could be improved. No real common room - it's a restaurant. Location can't be beat and the beds were great. Bathrooms really need to be cleaned more and better. Hostel staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. And there is an amazing bulldog named Google that made the hostel perfect!
Friendly staff but the showers did not have any warm water, and it was very noisy on the street during the weekend. Earplugs are recommended :)
Amazing breakfast, you can choose between different options (continental, Ecuadorian etc.). I'd love to have a bigger common area where you can meet fellow travelers. Internet worked well in the common areas, in the rooms you might have problems connecting.
The staff at this place are amazing, they do all they possibly can to help you out. However i got a dorm towards the main plaza, at 5am the police started their morning exercise running and singing (read screaming), and then at 6-8 the orcesthra played. If you want some good sleep i would recommend you to ask for a room thats not towards the mainsquare. Otherwise i had a great stay.
Do yourself a favour and stay somewhere else! We stayed here based on some of the reviews, and now we literally can't understand why it's rated so high. For less money you can find somewhere so much better. And there's so much choice in Banos! The place is ok, but it's more like a 1 star hotel than a hostel. We changed after one night and went somewhere else. I wouldn't stay here again.
Really great hostel right in the centre of banos. Very helpful staff, comfortable rooms and lovely breakfast included. The staff left a very helpful information book with local attractions etc. All round great stay highly recommend.
If I go back to Banos, I will stay there again!

The location is technically good because it is right next to the park in town and close to everything but at night (at least on the weekend) the bars and restaurants are literally blasting music, there were people fighting (screaming!) and dogs fighting all night...very difficult to sleep. There's no public kitchen and nowhere to hand wash/dry clothes if you want to do your own laundry.
Great family run hostel, who were more than happy and willing to ensure you stay was as comfortable as possible!
Amazingly friendly staff, good location. The only bad thing was the cold shower sadly
More of a hotel than a hostel, if you are after just a room and breakfast its fine (the breakfast is amazing) not very social thou and curtains are super thin.
A good hostel to meet people in a cracking location. Not the best looking but who cares you hardly spend any time in the hostel when in Banos.
Really nice staff. More like small hotel than a hostel. Daily room cleaning is great! Not really any communal space though. Our room didn't have any external windows.
