    This place was amazing. The room decor was cute with a ceiling plant and hand painted art. We had a view of the mountains and waterfall in front of us while we drank our morning coffee, and breakfast was cheap and large. Would highly recommend this place to any one traveling by themselves or as a couple.

    Absolutely wonderful place to stay in Baños! The rooms were very spacious and the private bathrooms were a huge plus. Spectacular views of waterfalls from the rooftop cafe were only made better by the incredibly kind and accommodating staff. If you ever find yourself in Baños, Chimenea is the place!

    Lovely clean hostel. More like a hotel. Rooms nice. Pool and roof top were a bonus. Needed to have a better rooftop bar

    The hostel is amazing value for money. Rooms are very clean and comfortable, towels are changed everyday and rooms cleaned (which is more than most hostels), and the views from both the front and back of the building are stunning (mountains and waterfall). The kitchen facilities were the only thing that could do with re-doing, there were minimal and very old.

    The kitchen closes at ten. So anything that you had in the fridge is inaccessible after ten. The staff was very nice. The hot tub is only filled when you pay 15 dollars. There was no option to forgo getting your room serviced daily. Yet, overall, the place was clean, and was a good value.

    The rooms are large and clean. Unfortunately the window was not completely tight through that it was a little cool. The staff is very nice and partly English speaking. In the conservatory on the roof you can have breakfast which is very nice. The hotel is only a few minutes walk from the center.

    Very Good

    The hostel is clean and beautifully decorated. The bed is quite hard but ok. The rooms are spacious but do not have any tea/coffee making facilities. The staff were nice but not keen to help, for example I asked if I could swap my wet towel for a dry one to take to the thermal baths and was told no. The hot tub/steam rooms were not in use. I was hospitalised with food poisoning and I don’t know for sure the cause, but the only thing I ate that my boyfriend didn’t was breakfast at the hostel
