    I had a greet time in this hostel. Everything was perfect, staff, atmosphere, location, rooms, etc. If I returned to Baños, I would stayed again in Community, no doubt..

    Our favourite hostel! The staff here are so friendly. I got the wrong time for a tour luckily David was so lovely and rang the company to say we were going to be late and ordered us a taxi so we didn’t miss the activity! He also managed to cut $10 off the price of the taxi. Luis who works here is hilarious and so kind, we went paragliding together and he chatted with me to calm my nerves and made the experience so fun!! Also definitely try the passion fruit mojito Adrian makes it is the best.

    An excellent hostel! Comfortable beds, great staff who organise all the tours you want! It's close to everything. Though the absolute highlight is the breakfast and dinner cooked by their in house chef. By far the best cooked food I've had in a hostel.

    Hostel is very well run and the facilities, particularly the common area, are great for relaxing and socializing as well as clean. Amazing breakfast and just good vibes in general! Salsa class was very fun!

    Great hostel all together. Love the showers and how clean everything is. The only thing I wish it had were privacy curtains. It is a 3-5 minute walk to the main area of town. Although I loved hearing the waterfall outside my room.

    Had such a good stay at community hostel Quito so I decided to check Banos out too! The hostel was very modern and open space which was great for socialising and meeting people. The food was great, just like Quito. The activities hosted were also great fun, we had a party bus the night we were there which was very good value for money. The rooms were comfortable and not too crowded with nice bathrooms. Would highly recommend!

    Absolutely loved this place, was the best thing about Baños! I stayed for Christmas and the staff made it feel really special - we had a huge dinner together and a gift exchange. The communal area is really nice, free tea and coffee all day, and a really good atmosphere - impossible not to meet people. My only criticism is that I had a top bunk but no shelf to put my water, phone etc on.

    I stayed at both the Banos and Quito Community locations. By far community hostel has been my favorite place I have stayed at in South America. The atmosphere is superb! The staff are all so inviting, friendly, and they really know how to engage quests. Community always has activities each night which really bring everyone together, creating an environment of openness and welcoming. I truly wish their were hostels with this vibe and staff all over the world! Also their food is so good!!!

    If this place wants to be 'the hostel' of Banos (like secret garden is in Quito) then it has alot to do to garner this status. THe staff (the main guy Luke- fantastic- can't say enough nice words) but there are structural changes they should implement. We stayed in a 6 bed dorm- this was simply too small for everyones stuff. There was only one dim light in the room which made getting your stuff difficult. There's no bedside charging points or locks. Only a small under the bed locker.
