Great quiet hostel away from the center of town. Very clean facilities, amazing breakfast (pancakes one day and scrambled eggs the next), and amazing hour long hot stone massage for a very affordable price. We also booked all our tours through them and had a blast. Definitely reccommend the paragliding and rafting!


Great service and it was a pleasant stay. Thank you

Extremely clean and pretty hostel. I like the fact that it is on the edge of town... Makes it a quiet place. Staff were very helpful if we asked questions. Eggs would be a nice addition to breakfast.


I love this place. It's about 15 minute walk from the town center so it's quiet and you get some exercise walking up the hill. The family who owns it is SO nice. Good breakfast, hot showers (unless you're the 1st in the morning - it literally takes 10 minutes to warm up). They set us up on an AMAZING 1-day jungle tour. Be sure to take it. The owner and his son both speak pretty good english. Banos has such amazing scenery. They did our laundry for $1.5 / kg.


Very nice place to stay away from noise, just at the bottom of the Subida de la Virgen. As Baños is small, you can walk everywhere from here. It's more of a Guesthouse than a Hostel though.


We arrived early at 6.30 ,nobody open the door for us. We have to wait for an hour in front of the door. The owner said I didn't email her to tell about the arrival time. But finally in the end she didn't check her mail, so she didn't know that I will be there. Hostel is clean , comfortable bed ,15 minutes walk from center ,breakfast is limited but good. Wifi is good.

Thank you very much for your visit, gave us pleasure to serve you. We send all our passengers an email, where we ask arrival time. He also asked if they arrive before check in time is 1:00 p.m., as the page says when you make your reservation, you must ring a bell at night and wait 5 minutes to open the door. Unfortunately you have not read your emails. Therefore the hostel habre its doors at 7:30 am Sorry you had to wait to get before the time of check in. Thanks for your comment.


Great little place tucked away from The busy town square. We felt very safe with the gated doors to even get into the hostel grounds. Nice and relaxing atmosphere. Free coffee and breakfast in the morning was an added bonus but don't dare ask for seconds!!

Thank you for your nice comment and suggestions, we like our guests feel safe in our hostel, our concern is to ensure descando of all guests. How good you taste our free breakfast (optional) the same is varied each day. For staff and the hostel was a pleasure to serve you.
