    My experience at this hostel was just AMAZING! I originally booked for just a night to see how things are, and ended up extending it for more nights. The staff is so friendly and accommodating, Roberto is a really great guy who’s there to help you when you need it, and the environment is so friendly. Most of the people who stay form a community together and hang out and chill in the evening. I met some really nice people with whom I did some tours, and it was a great experience. Really clean!

    Papachos was a fantastic place to stay in Baños. The atmosphere was relaxed, but still fun and social. The beds are super comfortable, wifi is strong, and the whole hostel is extremely clean. The full kitchen had everything I needed to make my own meals and I really liked the breakfast. The hostel is a little bit outside the center of town (maybe a 5 min walk), but because its on a slight hill you get an amazing view of the city from the terrace, and its very quiet at night.

    Good place to explore Banos from far enough from the strip to be quiet and close enough to run out for bananas. Nice crew working here too.

    Nice social hostel with great views of the surrounding area and waterfall. Comfortable beds and a tasty free breakfast. Strong wifi throughout. Cheaper to book through the website than directly with the hostel itself.

    This place has a good location and nice staff. The dorm rooms are decent but the breakfast was really not that great if that’s something that matters to you. Staying on the second floor can be a bit noisy from people hanging out in the main room and cooking in the kitchen. It’s alright for a couple nights if you’re looking to socialize and meet people.

    Hostel was fine. The biggest thing that was off about this hostel was that almost everyone who worked there seemed like they didn’t want to be there. However the beds were really good and the free breakfast was delicious

    The hostel was well located, however i was a bit disappointed with my cold (lukewarm) shower, so I didnt even bother to have one on my last morning. Also, if you are in the room next to the dining room...basically you will not sleep once breakfast starts! 😵

    Hostel was okay, BUT we had the room right next to the kitchen that was serving breakfast from 7AM. So no sleep for use after that time..
