    Really liked this hostel the staff/volunteers are absolutely lovely! Bella took us to Pailin del Diablo which is definitely a must see whilst visiting Baños! Could not recommend this hostel enough!

    I absolutely loved Papacho's hostel, so much so that I was actually quite sad to leave.. The volunteer staff are truly lovely people, and do all they can to make things comfortable - you feel like family! This is a fun, sociable hostel without being too party. The beds are super comfy, with plugs, reading lights and curtains and the kitchen is great to use. Everything is cleaned regularly. My only quarm is that the showers are a bit rubbish. Otherwise, top notch place!

    This hostel is AMAZING. It's a slight walk from the center of Baños (literally 5 minutes and a small hill) which was nice because it was a little less touristy. Incredible staff, amazing included breakfast (eggs made to order, toast, fruit & coffee), clean rooms, huge lockers (bring your own lock), extra blankets, and hot showers. Only reason I didn't give it 5/5 on security is because no room keys & we came back twice to an open front gate; staff is 24 hours though. I'd 100% stay here again!!

    Great hostel 5 min walk from the city centre. Lovely staff, good free breakfast, hot showers, CURTAINS ON BEDS!! Only downfall is that banos is coold at night and the bed sheets are thin... Definitely need some thicker blankets but can’t fault this place otherwise!

    Great all round hostel. Good security, nice bunks with curtains, decent lockers, strong WiFi, good activities. It’s a few blocks out of the town centre but is closer to the hiking trails.

    We had a great time staying in this hostel. The staff were so helpful in giving us information on activities and made booking things easy. Our only negative thing was that the kitchen was a bit basic...but still usable. Would definitely recommend staying here!

    There is hot water but it is not consistent, sometimes it burns and sometimes it's perfect and you have to ask how to figure out how to get it. It's not as simple as turning on the hot water. They should have step by step instructions in the shower or something. Staff was nice, the free breakfast was the same as the rest if south America, and good location since it doesnt take long to walk anywhere in banos.

    Really nice hostel with very sociable and friendly atmosphere. Really close to the centre of town and very secure. Could do with more shared bathrooms but that's not an easy fix! Overall would recommend staying here.

    A perfect hostel to do things in and around Banos. The staff is so nice, they tried everything to help me organize my stay (paragliding, hikes…). The hostel is really social and good to get connected, the beds are comfortable and it's quiet. It was only the breakfast I didn't liked that much, the eggs were burned and the fruits not fresh, but that didn't ruined my experience here at all.

    Slightly out of town but we preferred that. Nice dorms with big lockers. Nice breakfast and good kitchen to use although always seemed to be busy and not much room for multiple people to cook. Nice chill areas with ping pong and a film room. Good number of bathrooms and clean. Visit the local restaurant a few doors down it was so good!!!
