    We had a great one week stay at Hotel Chimenea. Great location to adventure around Baños and walk to restaurants. Quiet, friendly staff and a delicious breakfast on the beautiful rooftop terrace!

    Hostal Chimenea was exactly as I expected. I chose it based on the atmosphere the pictures depicted as well as a blog post review I read. The location is great - just a couple of blocks from the thermal baths and downtown shopping. The staff is welcoming and attentive to all needs. We actually took advantage of the in-house hot steam baths and massage packages and they were wonderful and very well priced. We stayed in private rooms. Will definitely come back here at our next visit to Banos.

    An incredible hostel, one of the best I've ever stayed at. Besides the great service you have the greatest view, the cutest rooms and delicious breakfast. This is the place to stay, look no further.

    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.

    Very friendly staff and a beautiful, clean rooms. It felt a bit more like a hotel than a hostel, but the location was great and the view of the waterfall from the rooftop terrace was amazing.

    Charming hostel located in the back corner of town. Quiet and scenic overlooking of the waterfall. Near the thermal springs too. Both the form and private rooms were comfortable and staff was very helpful!

    We stayed in Chimenea for 2 nights. It is located in an excellent place as you can walk to the town centre in just under 10ish minutes. The facility also has a pool which you can use from 8am-8pm. They have a very cheap breakfast on their rooftop cafe which was adequate and filled you up enough to go get on with your day. The one downside was that all three of us had some sort of allergies to either the linen or dust in our room. Stuffy noses and itchy eyes if we stayed in the room too long.

    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.
