    This place was so great! The staff are friendly and the facility is fun, clean and functional! Would definitely stay here again. Great for large groups as well! We had a group of 30 and we were well cared for by the staff!

    Great location, friendly staff, nice atmosphere with a fire lit every night in the common area. Room was clean. I spoke to the staff in Spanish, so I can’t comment on their communication in English. They told me they would have optional breakfast in the morning for $2 or $3.50 with eggs, but then they didn’t have the breakfast ready. However, one of the best breakfast places in Baños (Cafe Good) is right across the street, so I just went there and got breakfast for $3.50. Great stay overall.

    Very helpful staff and amazing facilities! Super close to everything- I had a great time! Didn't seem like a super social place though- not a lot of people talking or hanging out.

    A decent hostel with good private rooms although it’s pretty noisy if you’re right by the road. Staff are friendly and helpful and they do a great, quick, cheap laundry service! Not a huge social vibe although they have a nice social area with a fire each night. Would definitely recommend this place!

    Santa Cruz is a good budget option in a great location. Very close to bike hire, adventure activities and bars and restaurants. Breakfast was great. Nothing fancy about the room, very simple and has what you need.

    Very great place! The restaurant in front is just perfect for cheap breakfasts and meals wich is good because the kitchen at the hostel is not that great. It has a fireplace and hammock. It was very quiet when I went there but the common place was comfortable. The staff always helped me and was very friendly. The only negative is that is shouldn't be allowed to smoke in the common room since it is so close to the rooms! I recommend this place!

    Nice little hostel with a fire pit, games, free tea and really friendly staff. Good location, down the street from public baths and close to bike rentals and restaurants.

    Stayed in low season so it was quiet in Baños generally, but this hostel particularly so. Seemed to have some really nice communal areas for when it is busy though. Staff were lovely and great at helping us with info for arranging things to do in the area.

    Hostel is nice and safe, good value for the money, the only problem is the hostelworld profile is not updated, so no free breakfast and no cards accepted, staff isn’t really helpful
