Property Description

Princesa Maria is a hostel with spacious rooms each of them has private restooms (toilets), and strong hot showers 24/7, it is managed by a fammily that will do their best to help you to enjoy your stay in Banos-Tungurahua.

We are not a party hostel, so this means, that we have the perfect spot for you to enjoy a few days doing activities such as rafting, cannyoningt, biking and/ or trekking, but we don't have a curfew so if you want to go out during the night you are free to do so, as at our hostel after 23:00 pm is forbidden to make loud noises you have the option to go to the party mile and enjoy your time in the many bars that our city has for you.

We have a small kitchen that is actually really good if you are travelling for a long term, remember most groceries in Ecuador are really cheap, so you could save a lot of money cooking at our place instead of going out to spend money in any restaurant.

We have a small garden full of exotic flowers such as orchids, anturiums and other special flowers and plants you wont find anywhere else, in here we have a small table where you can enjoy the breakfast you prepare by yourself at our cozy kitchen.

Al the rooms have wooden floor, and thick walls, it is specially good for the fammilies or for the group of friends that want a comfy place for the time the be in Banos-Tungurahua.

As you know you cant smoke in the rooms but you can do it in the smoking area or in the garden. And if it is rainy you may just prepare yourself a cup of coffee and wait while watching a film until the rain stops.

Housekeeping is included in the price, but you have to let us know one day in advance when you want us to clean your room (or only your restroom) as you wish. If you want fresh towels/ toilet paper just ask for it at the reception desk.

    A lovely stay! The staff was very helpful and welcoming. It's on the quieter side but made a great place to stay in Baños for a while.

    This place was awesome for our stay in Banos! The tours and excursions offered from the hostel were great and at a fantastic price. The rooms were large and very clean. Our interactions with the staff were always helpful. There were lots of nice little touches and additions to make our stay special!

    We had a wonderful time at Princesa Maria for a weekend away. It was charming, nicely located, and the owners were extremely accommodating. The water pressure was a plus as well! If I am back in Baños, I would definitely consider staying there again.

    Great private rooms and common areas. The hostel is very clean and the facilities are great (actual hot water). The owners know the town and area very well and so can give great advice on the best things to do! Would definitely recommend.

    This was such a lovely hostel! Very clean, hot showers and WiFi that worked, it was such good value for money. The staff were absolutely amazing, booking trips for us and giving us loads of tips. I also didn’t feel well one day and they kept checking up on me which was really nice. Highly recommend this hostel!

    The owner is lovely, really helpful and speaks very slow to help me understand with my terrible Spanish. The bedrooms are very nice but probably not the most sociable hostel if you're a solo traveler.

    Victor is an excellent host and I would gladly stay at the Princesa Maria again. Just a few blocks from the city centre, I found the location perfect. Rooms are very basic but everything is clean and neat.

    Good location only 5 minute walk up the hill from the town and near some great restaurants. Noisy rooster next door but that can’t be helped. Amazing views of banos the hills and the waterfall from our room and comfortable enough beds. Ensuite bathroom was nice although we only had hot water for half our stay, which to be fair we didn’t complain about at the time as it was 11pm and we just wanted to go to bed. Friendly helpful staff speaking nice clear slow Spanish to us Spanglish speakers.

    Victor, the hostel owner, is great. Gave a very thorough tour of the hostel upon arrival and explained in detail how to book tours. A little inconvenient with the common area not opening until 7:30 am and closing at 11 pm (since Victor lived there) but would still definitely recommend a stay here.
