Really value for money. Private double with bathroom for only 18 dollars including good breakfast. Place is clean, beds are comfi and the wifi is good. Staff is friendly and the hostel is basically in center of town. Hardly recommended
Excellent breakfast options, hot water, lots of common space. The man working the desk in the evening was nice and helpful, but the lady in the morning was super grumpy and pretty rude. Maybe she was just having a bad day!
The room smelt of damp and mould and was dirty. The bathroom hadn't been cleaned in days and the blanket on the bed was filthy.
We liked this hostel. Same price to stay in a double as it is to stay in a dorm - note for couples! We booked dorm but they let us switch straight away. Kitchen is great, fully stocked and equipped but can only use it during certain times which is the one slight annoyance, but we worked around this. Banos is great and would highly recommend staying here when you visit. Oh and the free breakfast is awesome!!!
Good breakfast, helpfull stuff (english, spanish, hebrew). Kitchen is available only from 14 till 17 and from 21 till 23.
Basic room but clean. Good value for the money, in centre of town. Less then 10 minute walk from busterminal.
You get what you pay for at Hostal Travsilvania. But that being said, you get an amazing breakfast which save you about 3$, so you're stay is basically free. If you are looking for a cheap budget place, this is it! safe, moderately clean, pool table, 3 computers, delicious breakfast, excellent location, it's definitely a good deal.
The hostel and staff was quite nice. The rooms a little packed but I knew that from older reviews and was neither surprised nor annoyed - in the end it's one of the most ecenomic hostels in town. Breakfast was great and the kitchen clean and well equipped, I just wished the bathroom trash had been emptied at least once during the three nights I spend there. Same for cleaning the bathroom floor.
Brilliant location, right in the heart of Banos town and great value for money. The rooms are clean but very cramped. I was in a small room that had three beds and a bunk bed, top bunk you can't even sit up and there's no ladder to climb up either. It's crammed but definitely does the job if you're not too fussy. Good people there and everyone seemed very friendly. Staff live there, and aren't over friendly but I didn't have much to ask for. No lockers, but a nice addition getting a towel.
