Property Description

We are the hostel with the best location in the city with a rooftop bar and panoramic views of the surrounding area - mountains, a waterfall and the entire city of Baños!

The iconic Plantas y Blanco Hostel, also known as P&B, is famous for bringing together amazing people. You can sit by the campfire, play the guitar, have a PlayStation break, enjoy billiards, and TV room with Netflix.

Breakfasts served in the café on the panoramic terrace, which are a perfect way to start the day. You can order here freshly squeezed juices, homemade marmalade, fruit salads, raw options, or go traditional with scrambled eggs and homemade freshly-baked bread with coffee.
We strive for the highest standards in cleanliness, and have a full time staff that help us keep every corner of our hostel clean, every day. We´re always willing to help and are eager to get to learn about your adventures.

You can taste our specialties in gourmet dinners and cocktails in both the rooftop bar and the restaurant next door (surprise! It´s also ours!) The restaurant has a very special atmosphere that you have to feel for yourself, so we won´t ruin the surprise by trying to describe it.
To chill, you can spend time with a book on a lawn chair, or hammock, get a massage on-site, or go to nearby hot springs, there is also the option of ordering a steam bath right here in the hostel. Did we mention we´re the largest hostel in town? That´s right! Even people from other hostels come hang out with us!

    Superb

    Great place located right in the centre of Banos. Very cheap and well worth the money. Showers were hot in room 17. Beds weren’t the best but they were a bed. A lot of things to do at the hostel, roof top bar which had $5 all you can drink for an hour. Then downstairs you have table tennis outdoor smoking area, and a Netflix/PlayStation room. Security is great, staff are friendly. Wicked place 🤙🏽

    Fabulous

    Really good value for the money! Great location with nice staff. The breakfast is pretty good and the bar is a great place to meet fellow travelers. Two small issues—there is a lot of noise from the street if you are in the front half of the building, and the bathroom smelled mildewy. The water was warm and water pressure good. One small suggestion would be to get a water saving shower head. This would help with conservation and with the slow drain.

    The single rooms are horrible with only a shower curtain but to separate the bathroom from your bed. Horrible noise transfer at all times. Beds extremely uncomfortable. I’ve stayed in many hostels this was the least inviting and comfortable place
