    Cons: You do have to walk a little to get to the town center, but it's not that big of an issue for me. WiFi was slow, but worked when I needed it too. The street the hostel is situated next to is pretty busy. You can expect some noise during the day and even at night. Pros: I really enjoyed how clean and nice the hostel was. The owner is very informative and will help you with any needs you have, from travel information, thermal pool recommendations, and sports equipment rental.

    I loved Papachos!! I stayed there for over a week and didn’t want to leave. The staff is all super friendly, especially Roberto who will help you set up any tour or activity you want to do and will arrange for you to be picked up from the hostel. It’s not in the center of town so it was quieter, but everything is still close. There are several common areas to hang out in so it was really easy to meet people. I highly recommend staying here, especially if you’re solo.

    Absolutely loved this hostel. Staff are really friendly and the atmosphere is great, particularly as a solo traveller, particularly on the weekends. Beds are comfy with privacy curtains, nice kitchen and common area, and it’s always clean. Also the showers are awesome. It’s on the outskirts of town and the hill is annoying but still only 10 mins walk from anywhere.

    Pretty good hostel with potential to be better Pros: - one of the cleanest hostels I’ve ever stayed at - very open common areas makes it easy to meet people Cons: - not every shower has hot water - could use 1 more bathroom - nothing to dry your hands with i.e. towels, paper towels - all of the info near reception is about other places in Ecuador, not much info about Baños

    Papachos was great. Good value for the money for sure! We moved here from a different hostel in Baños that we weren’t too happy with and this place made up for it. Location was just a touch outside of the main part of town but the walk was nice. Staff was nce and helpful. Good common areas. No bad things to say!

    Papachos was such a welcoming hostel! First, they welcomed me late at night when the hostel I booked was closed. Additionally, the staff went out of his way to give me recommendations. Was fairly busy when I was there and made for a great place to meet people to adventure with. Facilities a little old, but very clean and comfy.
