    Papachos is easily one of the best hostels in Banos. Great staff, clean, good location (although a short walk from the main strip which makes it nice and quiet.. and Banos is small so it's really not that far!). They can organize all your fun adventures for you - rafting, canyoning, biking, hiking, parasailing, bungee jumping, etc. Highly recommend!

    Loved this hostel! 5 min walk to main attractions in the city, very social, community building vibes. Easy to book activities for the next day. And the breakfast was great, just what you needed to get you going in the morning! Great place to stay if you’re looking to make friends as everyone hangs out on the roof/in the common space at night.

    One of the best hostels we stayed in in South America! This hostel was spotless, good breakfast, movie room and good chilllout areas. Strong WiFi, staff are friendly and arrange movie nights, pub quiz, tours for guests. We. Looked a 6 bed dorm but when we arrived we were changed to a 4 bed dorm at the same price. We extended our stay for 1 night which led to some confusion over price and made us feel a bit awkward.

    So having a laid back vibe is great but at times here the staff were a little too laid back, to the point where it would take a few hours for a simple request like getting bedding. Hostel is really cool - has ping pong table, home cinema, nice rooftop, lots of places to chill. Most of the staff were nice and helpful it was just a couple who let the others down. The activities arranged by the hostel such as rafting and canyoning are super cool too, this is a great feature. Good fun here

    The hostel staff were all very friendly and helpful. Great location tucked away on a quiet street but only a few minutes walk to lots of bars and restaurants. Kitchen is good and well stocked. We had the room which was right next to the kitchen which was very noisy on an evening and a morning but this was mainly over the days carnival was on so not a problem for us but this is definitely a more social hostel for anyone who is wondering.
