    One of the best hostal I stayed in Ecuador. Sebastien who runs the hostal is absolutely amazing. He was constantly giving me tips and recommendations and helping me book different activities. He also went out of his way to help me book my Amazon adventure and help me with transportation. The hostal has great vibes and sebastien really makes you feel like your part of the family. They serve an awesome breakfast and there are always some dope baked goods if you ever feel like snacking.

    I was only going to stay for one day and I ended up staying for five. Everyone working here is super friendly and there is a great sense of community. Sebastian was the best hostel host that I have ever met and I have been to many hostels. He takes care of all of the activities and gets the best price (rafting, canyoning, paragliding, biking, puenting, etc.). He came out with us for food, clubbing, ATVing, etc. I hope to be back here soon. If you are able to get a bed here, do it.

    There is really no other choice for your stay in Baños. If you’re looking to feel welcomed, taken care of, meet amazing people, and have a blast, stay here! Sebastian particularly goes above and beyond to ensure you’re visit is memorable and one of a kind.

    Pretty grounds, huge reception/lobby/hang out area that included a bar and restaurant, games, magazines, tables, etc. Had a separate yoga studio on site with beautiful views of a waterfall. Host was friendly and helpful, spoke english, so that was helpful to us. Our room was very large and clean. Location was near to town, only a few blocks from the center of everything. We were very happy with our stay.

    The place is great. My only concern was the water from the shower was clogged. Also the bikes that they offered us were double the price than the ones offered downtown two blocks away.

    Good location, 5 min walk to center of town. On the edge of town which makes it a little more quiet and peaceful. The staff were welcoming and helpful with answering all of our questions about the town and activities available. We stayed in a private room, it was clean and perfect size, with hot water showers. I recommended this hostel to other travelers I met in Ecuador and would stay there again.

    I chose this hostel because I read that it can get pretty quiet at night & is away from all of the craziness in town. It was actually pretty noisy because we were put in a room away from the rest of the hostel near the neighbors. Every night & morning you can hear the dogs & cats fight each other and just bark super loud. I also chose a 5 bed dorm but we were put in a 3 bed door for some reason. Nice hang out space though! Sebastian is a good help with booking tours.

    We really liked staying at this hostel, the location is beautiful and Sebastian is really helpful. The rooms are small but comfortable. The communal area is nice and social. Would recommend.
