Good stay, itit is located off the City center up the Hill. Staff was friendly and helpful. There are nice common areas and a patio which weren't used by the other travellers. Oh and there's aa cutie called Maya which is the 3 month old pug.
Good, clean room, with comfortable beds. Nice electricity sockets per bed (including USB). Breakfast is good! Crew very friendly and speaks good English. Maybe some strange strictly rules like: if you change a bed without telling them, they will charge you and it's not allowed to clean your shoes with their towels (duh..). It's a 8 minute walk from the bars (only last part is uphill)

Nice quiet hostel run by a beautiful family. If you are looking for a party hostel, this is not it- however it was perfect for us. Breakfast was delicious. Beds were comfy. Everything was clean. Big bonus that they have a pug puppy that was the absolute cutest. Only negative was cold showers.
+ves: -Nice and quiet but still close to everything -Very clean -Incredibly comfy beds - best night sleep on trip so far -Nice breakfast and included in price -Good laundry service -ves: -Charge to store bags - when we said this was unusual, they claimed every hostel does this (they don't) -Laundry service expensive ($1.50/kilo) -Not allowed to use kitchen before 10am - we wanted to prepare lunch for a day out on the bikes but were unable to -No flexibility on these rules
This felt like a hidden gem in Baños. A bit further out than most hostels it was worth the extra 5 mins walk for the comfort and cleanliness of this welcoming place. Both of the owners were lovely and helped me plan my time in Baños to fit in the most I could. Free breakfast was fantastic and I got an amazing full body massage right there! Highly recommended.
really nice and clean hostel/b&b! Staff/owners are very kind and helpful. There is a great breakfast! It was a bit empty when I was there, anyway I would recommend it!
FELT LIKE I WAS TREDING ON EGG SHELLS. Owner Was constantly checking if. We'd dried our dishes straight away. Hostel was VERY EMPTY WITH NO ATMOSPHERE. Owner was very rude and patronising. Good location and value but no way would I return.
The hostel was very clean and had a nice common room with loads of bean bag chairs and a TV. However, the hostel itself is about as far from the city center as you can get in Banos and the staff wasn't very helpful in trying to find something to eat for dinner when we arrived at 8:30 - they couldn't even offer up a number for pizza delivery or come up with a reasonable suggestion for somewhere close to go.
Great place to stay if you are looking for a good social hostel that isn't a party hostel. The staff is super nice and friendly. The showers are clean with hot water. Breakfast is good although they fill you up mostly on bread. Wifi is better than most at times. Also they offer massage options right there at the hostel ! I would recommend it for sure!! If I ever make it to Baños , I will be staying there again .
So this is the best hostel we have stayed in in South America! The beds were so comfy, rooms were spacious and everything super clean, excellent kitchen, really nice chill out room with lots of dvds, awesome breakfast and really great staff. Unless you like loud party hostels this place is the best place to stay in Banos. Also the town is a wonderful place to stay with so much to see and such warm people. Thank you so much for making our time there so good!
