    As a solo female backpacker in Ecuador...Papachos is the best hostel I've stayed at. The people are kind and helpful, the facility is cozy and spacious simultaneously. There is an atmosphere of community and the kitchen is full of community spices and good kitchen utensils. I highly recommend staying here if you are ever passing through 100%!!!!

    This hostel has an amazing view of the small city! At the rooftop you can see the waterfall at the hot springs. This place is not a party hostel, just the way I like it. It is quiet. Roberto, the owner is very accommodating! He can help you navigate around the city. He knows where and how to go around the city! The rooms and beds are clean! There is also hot water for the shower! This is a good place to stay!

    Nice, hostel with a nice location as well. From there rooftop you have a nice view over Bãnos and if you want to hike from Banõs up to the Tungurahua, the start of the trail is close to the hostel. The stuff is also super friendly and are willing to help you with all your questions. The rooms are clean and there beds are nice too. And there also is a big kitchen you can use. I would defend go there again.

    Good location to the baths and the centre of Banos. Kitchen was well equipped and we got upgraded to a four bed dorm for no extra cost. Staff weren’t the most helpful when it came to asking questions about tours / hikes but you can find that information in the town centre.

    Not too stoked about the house rule that you have to be in your room after quiet hours. Facilities were great, very clean. Great value.

    Windows would not close properly, no towels, dirty bathrooms, and pieces of the drywall were crumbling onto the bed. Worst part was the customer service. They practically ran us out of the hostel hours before checkout and were “too preoccupied” to answer any questions about activities/tours in Baños.
