    I loved my stay at Hostal Chimenea. My room was charming - it had paintings of exotic birds, plants throughout the room, and a lovely little balcony with a gorgeous view of the garden. I had a fabulous massage at the on-site spa. The hostel is around the corner from thermal baths and just a few doors down from a great adventure tourism shop where the staff speak English.

    We loved our stay at Chimenea! Perfect location next to the Virgen baths and a beautiful view of the waterfall. The room was immaculately clean, filled with plants, and had a peaceful balcony. We loved the roof for hanging out and playing cards. The breakfast was wonderful. I got a hot stone massage from the staff member and it was so peaceful and lovely for a great price. All three of us enjoyed the steam bath experience one morning and it was so fun! I highly recommend doing it at least once.

    Stayed two nights with my girlfriend. Great location near plenty of things to do in Baños. Breakfast on the rooftop terrace with the view of the waterfall was the perfect way to spend a morning.

    Hostel Chimenea offers and exceptional place to stay in a great location, two blocks from my favorite coffee and hot chocolate spot, at the base of the waterfall and 2 minutes walk from the hot springs. The atmosphere is relaxing and trendy, the staff is friendly, the space feels clean and comfortable, the views are stellar and the location is great!

    I had an excellent experience at Hostal Chimenea. Loved the kitchen/breakfast/ hangout area on the top floor with a superb view of the waterfall and the valley's surroundings. Very friendly staff, and close to the hot springs and walkable to everything in town without being in the center of the noise and traffic. I'd definitely stay there again.

    Super friendly staff, great location, and it was clean. The only thing I would change would be to have filtered drinking water accessible for guests.

    Great hostel for the price. Location is good; walk 2 blocks and you're in the main area of the city with all the restaurants, shops and travel agencies. The rooftop is a nice common area and the breakfasts are delicious. Staff was always helpfull for any questions I had. Very quiet at night, so if you aren't looking for a party hostel this is perfect.

    The facilities are great, and the hostel is very clean and comfortable. However, wouldn't recommend for a solo traveler trying to meet people - the atmosphere wasn't great.

    Very Good

    Sadly, we got very little sleep that night because other guests were allowed to party in the courtyard just outside our room until 4::00 a.m. This may have been our final hostel stay.
