Property Description

We are the hostel with the best location in the city with a rooftop bar and panoramic views of the surrounding area - mountains, a waterfall and the entire city of Baños!

The iconic Plantas y Blanco Hostel, also known as P&B, is famous for bringing together amazing people. You can sit by the campfire, play the guitar, have a PlayStation break, enjoy billiards, and TV room with Netflix.

Breakfasts served in the café on the panoramic terrace, which are a perfect way to start the day. You can order here freshly squeezed juices, homemade marmalade, fruit salads, raw options, or go traditional with scrambled eggs and homemade freshly-baked bread with coffee.
We strive for the highest standards in cleanliness, and have a full time staff that help us keep every corner of our hostel clean, every day. We´re always willing to help and are eager to get to learn about your adventures.

You can taste our specialties in gourmet dinners and cocktails in both the rooftop bar and the restaurant next door (surprise! It´s also ours!) The restaurant has a very special atmosphere that you have to feel for yourself, so we won´t ruin the surprise by trying to describe it.
To chill, you can spend time with a book on a lawn chair, or hammock, get a massage on-site, or go to nearby hot springs, there is also the option of ordering a steam bath right here in the hostel. Did we mention we´re the largest hostel in town? That´s right! Even people from other hostels come hang out with us!

Oh man, here we go: fiber optic internet connections and blazingly fast Wifi, open kitchen, hot showers, computers, shared minibar, laundry, book Exchange, board games, free luggage storage, PlayStation, pool table, ping pong ,slackline, Netflix, bonfire, musical instruments, massages, rooftop bar, camping options, free stuff, tours, planned activities, dinner specials, bike rides, and lots more.

    Cons: The bathrooms are a little grimy and the dorm rooms are completely closed off with no opening windows which makes them stuffy and smelly, especially if they are packed with boys Pros: extremely hot showers, friendly and helpful staff, decent location, lightning fast laundry service. Put some hammocks outside for relaxing!

    Good hostel with lots of great facilities. However it was VERY quiet - the ‘party hostel’ claim didn’t quite fit (the bar didn’t even open the 2 nights we were there). Excellent shower pressure and hot water, when it works (it runs a bit hot and cold).
