My wife and I absolutely loved this place! We stayed in both the dorms and private room, and both were very nice and accommodating. The staff is super helpful and nice, the beer is well priced, and everything is kept up to date and clean. This isn't a party hostel, but there's always somebody enjoying the night air on the porch. It's on the edge of town, but that doesn't matter because Baños is quite small. :)

Great hostel! We stayed here two nights and were so disappointed we couldn't stay a 3rd because they were all booked up. This hostel is very clean and the staff makes you feel at home. The hostel pup is also a bonus :) I recommend the location--the "downtown" is a little noisy and busy, so it is nice being away from that at Molino Blanco. It's a close and easy walk into town, only a couple minutes.

Upon arrival other guests warned us of money being stolen from their locker. We decided to stay one night and then check out. This proved difficult as they said they didn't have enough money to give us change. Eventually we sorted it out but it took much too long and was very disappointed. Note, they will charge $2 to store your luggage during the day. There are better options elsewhere.

Primero antes que nada gracias por habernos visitado en nuestro hostal, segundo parece ustedes solo conocen o saben la historias de un pasajero que realmente estaba varios días hospedado, y ni siquiera sabia que había pasado con su dinero. Antes de culpar o definir si realmente fue un robo o no!! debe tener una respuesta o preguntar a los propietarios, administradores que sucedió. Ecuador culpar solo escuchando cuesta prisión. El pasajero aun esta con problemas justo por esto, cuando su dinero fue resuelto inmediatamente. El pasajero estuvo varios días y nunca informo nada a la recepción, muy extraño, verdad? entonces usted como viajera debe preguntar a los administradores quien gustosamente le hubieran explicado lo sucedido y no sacar conclusiones apresuradas solo por un rumor que alguien le dice. Tercero el cambio que no tenía recepción no es algo extraño hasta en hoteles cinco estrellas tienen ese problema. Pero según su comentario recepción le entrego tiempo después el cambio, verdad?. El encargo de equipaje mi estimada pasajera después del check out hora 11:00 a.m, es cuando el hostal termina su servicio por el cual usted paga, el equipaje puede encargar hasta 14:00 es gratuitamente, después de ese horario hasta las 22:00 p.m. si desea utilizar los servicios baño, Internet, descansar cómodamente en las hamacas, puede ducharse, ver una película, tener su equipaje seguro, seguir haciendo actividades o hasta utilizar la cocina, por el precio tan cómodo de $2, otros hoteles cobran $5. Somos un hostal un negocio, no una fundación. Todo cuesta limpieza del baño, los químicos, accesorios de limpieza, personal para la limpieza, servicio de conexión de Internet, mantenimiento de limpieza de parte del personal. Como usted verá demanda costos y sin contar los impuestos que declaramos y eso no cobramos a usted. Claro!! el servicio de encargo de equipaje pasado las 14:00 es opcional, nadie le obliga puede usted dejar en otro lugar. Me parece extraño y raro, si sentía desconfianza por perdidas de dinero, supuestos!!! quería dejar su equipaje en el hostal? eso no tiene mucha lógica. Gracias por visitarnos.

Location is a little far from the center, but easily walkable because nothing is far in Banos. The staff were all very nice and helpful and were able to help book any activity needed. The showers were fantastic! Best shower I had in all of South America! Great water pressure and plenty of hot weather. Washed my hair every night I was there.

Best hostel I've ever stayed at! The staff were super friendly and cleaned our room and provided fresh towels every day. Breakfast was awesome, and they even provided for the gluten-free person in our group. We booked a few tours with them which were all a lot of fun and easy to do. Would highly recommend!

Comfy beds, nice chilled atmosphere, clean. Is a walk up a hill which we liked (to work off the dinner!) but when you 1st arrive with bags take a taxi. Loved the hammocks and the dog maya!

Really the best hostel I've been to in South America. In the end I stayed several more days. Its owner keeps the hostel very well maintained, clean and tidy. I love this in a hotel, I feel like my home. The staff is very helpful has management options for any activity and I do not need to make as much effort they help me with reservations with excellent companies guaranteeing service, and pick me up at the hotel. Wuuuaa !! That's what I loved the efficiency of the service. They have a beautiful
