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.

    Excellent hostel! The staff is incredibly helpful and eager to make your stay as comfortable as possible. One of us was actually sick during our 2 night stay here, and the receptionist pointed us to best pharmacy to get all fixed up. Both the dorm and private rooms are really comfortable and clean. Would highly recommend this hostel in Banos!

    Only stayed for a night sadly, but was a lovely hostel. Easy to meet people as a solo traveller, they help you book all activities and give you loads of information. The dinner i had was one of the best of my whole trip.

    Consistent hot water would have been nice, not much of a party hostel vibe, bar doesn’t open until 6pm or when they feel like it and closes at 11pm
