The hostel was very good. The resturant was also very cheap and serves large portions at low prices. Would stay here again.

It was cheap for a private room and clean. Located off the Main Street but banos is very walkable but everyone honks in the morning and construction all over city will wake you up anywhere. We enjoyed this hostel. Half the staff speak English and the other half do not but everyone is nice. They actually sent us to their "other hostel" owned by the same family but that would of been nice to know in advance. All in all we definitely enjoyed our stay.

Checked into a 4 bed female dorm w/ensuite. Bathroom was very old, not very clean, with no shower curtain so the water went all over the floor. Other girls in my dorm brought a guy back to stay in the spare bed, and as there is no security there was no-one to stop/question them. I complained and he was asked to leave. Woke up with so many bites, and blood spots on the sheets. Told the volunteers on the front desk but not sure they did anything, checked another girl in the room as soon as I left.

Erupcion hostel was great! If you get a double matrimonial room ask for one with windows. Rooms were nice enough, really comfy beds. Staff was super helpful and nice. Wonderful location right on the square. They have a nice restaurant with good food, but a bit pricey for budget travelers. Awesome balcony looking out on the square with seats and tables. Spotty internet.

Had such a great time! We only ate breakfast at the restaurant as we were gone all day, but it was really good. My friend and I shared a private room with an en suite bathroom. The room was great and the bathroom was clean. Everyone at the hostel was very helpful with planning activities, and giving helpful information about the town. It was my friends birthday on our last night and bunch of employees and other hostel visitors went out to celebrate with us and showed us all a great time!!!

Fantastic staff, WiFi and location. DO NOT EAT AT THE HOSTEL - YOU WILL HAVE A BAD, BAD TIME. Kitchen conditions are horrible and in honesty, you can't cook in there because it is shared with their 'restaurant'.

Great location right on one of the main squares, close to everything

Nice staff who can tell you what to do in the area. Lockers with outlets inside them is nice. Only complaint is that you can't use the kitchen before 9am or after 9pm, and you have to share it with the restaurant.

Staff are really lovely. Location is a bit loud and there isn't a huge amount of atmosphere in the hostel but it's a handy in terms of doing activities around Banos.

Loved it! Don't change a thing and definitely keep the two volunteers around. They were so helpful and amazing in every way.

The room we were in was the 6 bed on the street corner. Room was cramped and the street noise was pretty bad. The other rooms might have been OK as therye further from the street

Nice hostel with a great location. You can find cheaper hostels certainly, although the food in the restaurant is good. The restaurant however, takes the place of a social space for the hostel. Locals having birthday parties and eating lunch, doesn't mix with backpackers handing in smelly laundry though.

Can recommend. Staff make the difference in this hostel. Super friendly and welcoming and they made it a breeze to organise fun activities / day trips. Shower is basic but functional. Also they have a bulldog called Google who is a deadset legend. Enjoy!

This place would have been great if the room was sound proofed... the whole night friday we were woken up by loud music being played from cars passing. exhaust from the cars entered the room. the room had windows that weren't meant to fully close. The room is probably great for people who don't mind going to sleep at 3am or 4am, and who don't mind breathing exhaust fumes. most likely could have gotten a better place for half the price. everything else was great.

The staff was so friendly! They were also very helpful with planning activities. The place has a great vibe about it, and typically has a lot of travelers staying there.

I wasn't really sure if it was a hostle or a restaurant , the food was poor I had " tacos " and it was one of the saltiest things Iv ever eaten I wouldn't generally complain about food just never return but was as bad I felt it necessary. The blonde receptionist was helpful tho and resolved the situation she was the highlight of the hostel very helpful and friendly

Great location, staff were excellent, one girl was very helpful booking trips and buses etc. breakfast not included but restaurant very nice, we had breakfast and lunch here. Room was quite small but with good ensuite bathroom. Not all lockers worked but we could share one so it was ok. Recommend hostel and go to the hot springs! Wifi is good.
