    Great hostel, very clean ! However, do not book with breakfast as it is more expensive online than if you take it directly on site.

    We loved our stay at your hostel. The staff is very friendly and tried hard to communicate in English with us. Our room was very clean and the beds comfortable. We will be returning next weekend as we loved the town’s vibe!!! We highly recommend going to this hostel!

    Hostel Chimenea was one of our favorite hostels that we stayed at during our trip! It was clean, the room was cute, and it was a great location. Baños is small, and you can walk anywhere in town from this hostel. It’s especially close to the thermal baths. My only real complaint is that breakfast isn’t included, but there are affordable breakfast options.

    We wished that the hot tub was working because the pool is very cold. The spa was wonderful and the breakfast was delicious

    Nice hostel with a nice terrace on the roof with a view of the waterfall. You could also purchase breakfast on the terrace which was handy. Not many others staying so not much opportunity to meet people.

    Great hostel in a brilliant location. The rooftop was always quiet so it's not the best for meeting other travellers. Room was a good size, hot water and comfy beds. The massages at the hostel are okay but there are better and cheaper ones in town. The hostel can arrange trips for you with a local tour agency who were amazing for our first tour for white water rafting but really unhelpful when my friend was sick and we had to postpone ziplining.
