    I can totally recommend the Community Hostel! Everything was clean. The food is amazing (dinner = fancy) and not too expensive. The beds were cozy and the shower hot. Nice area to hang around downstairs. The best: amazing staff working there! I went out with them a few times and really had fun! You should be aware that the people there like to party, but they also respect the quiet time after 11. Thank you ❤️

    Great hostel! The hostel is nice and clean, staff are a lot of fun. Short walk to the main plazas. Parties almost every night!! but they still have quiet hours so people can get sleep too if they want!

    Wonderful and clean hostel! The very welcoming staff create a great environment to meet some new people to do some activities with. Breakfast is $3.50 but filling and fancy or you can get some avocados and bread from the market .5km away or so. Dinner is $5 and is definitely worth it. Also recommend the restaurant Areopas to go which is nearby.

    Location just on the edge of town but barely a walk to the centre. Staff are great, friendly, helpful and enthusiastic. Atmosphere is awesome even though not that full when I was there with nightly events and excellent good value meals in the hostel. No big lockers but drawers under beds for valuables and small backpacks, charging points near beds, very nice rooms and bathrooms, always clean. No lock or buzzer on main entrance but no real need to be honest. Also offer lots of tours etc

    Very enjoyable stay at Community. Unfortunately my phone and money were stolen on a night out in Baños and the staff were very helpful and considerate in the circumstances. Stayed during carnival and the atmosphere was very good. Would highly recommend staying here

    Really social. it's not a huge hostel so it's easy to meet people. staff were really friendly and helpful too. It's not at the center of town but everything is still within walking distance. i found the tab system really convenient, it's not a problem as long as you keep track of what you're ordering. Beds were comfy, though I wish there were more electrical outlets in each room. wifi was good on the first floor, but gets spotty upstairs. also no kitchen facilities that guests can use.

    Good location near the main street. The main thing i liked was that the common area was cosy and warm, with comfortable chairs and sofas that you could relax in. That's unusual in hostels. The breakfast isn't very generoua compared to many hostels though, just a banama and some bread and the usual coffee and juice. I got the impression reception staff were all volunteers, they weren't very clear with instructions or info. Though they were friendly.

    Location: a bit out of the way but maybe a 7 min walk to town. Not a big deal. I probably didn’t stay long enough to give a fair shot. But I booked a 4 person room with the intention of getting better sleep as I had been awake for over 24 hours on San Pedro the day day before. I got there, they put me in a 6 bed room and said that was all they had left. Lame! The room stank like a giant evil poop and all windows were closed. Hot and musty. Can you imagine? Left immediately the next morning.

    Not at all the party vibe we expected unfortunately.. common area is nice but no atmosphere at all, just some tables and some chairs. We checked in at 5am and could already go into the room which was nice, cleanliness is also a big plus!
