    This place is excellent. The staff were super friendly, especially Alison and Alejandra. I felt very welcome and the place was close to everything but far enough away to be nice and quiet. I would recommend this place to anyone travelling to Baños.

    Holy empanada!! This is the place to be. Yeah it’s clean and secure and everything else you need but the real kicker is the people: the people working here are dooooope! And that perpetuates a culture of care, fun, and respect that is sure to turn any trip to Banos into an experience of a lifetime. Papachos 100%, 10/10 recommend.

    Really great hostel, perfect place to chill when your not doing something adventurous around Banos. Staff were extremely helpful and accommodating, the tours we booked through them were awesome too and cheaper than in town. Great breakfast, comfy beds, amazing cinema room! Highly recommend thank you!

    This place is great for going tours in and around Baños. The staff are super helpful at giving you information about tours etc and can help you organise them! One thing we would say is that we were unlucky to stay in the dorm room next to the common room... the TV and music was on until quite late at night and with no door in between it was really loud and same in the morning with breakfast. So try not to stay in this room if possible. Other than that we had a great stay!

    Staff were all really friendly and helpful. Location is good, it’s about a 10 min walk to the bus terminal and center of town. Price for dorm was really reasonable considering it includes breakfast which most other hostels don’t. Breakfast was eggs bread fruit and coffee. Nice living area and atmosphere. Only downside was WiFi didn’t work in our room but no other issues.

    Loved this hostel,all the volunteers and staff were amazing. Not a party hostel but still rallied everyone one when there was a night out. 6 bed was tight for space, clean bathrooms, decent kitchen. Would definitely stay here again.thanks Paula X

    We stayed at Papachos based on the good reviews but were slightly disappointed. We stayed in the 6 bed dorm and it was very cramped. The breakfast was okay, typical eggs, bread and fruit. The showers were often in use and I don’t think I had any hot water during my stay. The staff however were very friendly and nice.
