    This is the place to be! Booked for 1 night as intended to be a pit stop from Quito to Mantanita, ended up extending 3 more nights. Banos is beautiful and you won’t get a better view of its beauty than the rooftop lounge right outside of your room. 100% safe, extremely clean, and the workers and popacho will make sure you have all the info needed to enjoy the city. Thanks!

    I absolutely love and enjoyed my stay in Banos at this hostel. I was planning on being at this place for a night or two but decided to extend my stay for a week because of how great everything is. This hostel has a good location with everything being close by and within walking distance. The hostel is clean and well maintained. The staff is awesome, friendly and super helpful (shout out to Camilo and Nevin). I'd recommend this place to anyone!

    We've had a wonderful stay at Papacho's :) The room was pretty comfortable, the hostal is really well located, you got plenty of space aroung you, a rooftop to enjoy the view of Banos and even a tv/cinema room. Also you're just one minute walking distance from the start of the hike to get to la casa del arbol or 5mins away from the hot springs spot. All of this experience brought to you by Roberto, who was a very king and helpful host our entire stay. We highly recommend this place :)

    Despite covid this hostel was very social and it was easy to meet people and make friends as a solo traveler. It’s clean with comfortable beds and warm showers, and they also organize activities for a reduced price. Highly recommend if you want a social atmosphere despite the pandemic.

    I came to Papachos with two fellow volunteers and we had a blast. It is a very clean hostel with some of the best volunteers. I was very lucky to meet Enzo and John and they were the nicest people I have met. I met many fellow travelers and spent all weekend on some type of adventure. It is very close to many areas in Baños and you can easily find someone willing to show you around. Try finding Adriana while you stay in Baños and you won’t be disappointed. I was so sad i had to leave so soon.

    Papachos is awesome. Great staff (give Camillo a raise!), vibes and location. Not too central in Banos (which could get overwhelming at night) but in a scenic part of town that is super convenient. Has really great backpacker vibes (good convos, people, and tours). Absolutely reccomend
