Good location near centre of town. Basic rooms but at their price are great value. Friendly family run place, kindly looked after us when we got ill. Also able to book various organised activities through the hostel which was very convenient. Good breakfast included in price!

At only $9 per person for a private this hostel was perfect. The location is good being only a minute walk to the centre of Baños and the included breakfast was really good (get the fruit and granola - it's huge!). The common area out the back, which is next to some of the private rooms, can be quite loud... More

Good location in the centre of town and only a few blocks from the bus station. The rooms are very basic but adequate. Wifi works sporadically. The falafels and hummus available from reception are very good, the breakfast is also excellent.

An average hostel, we had a private room wich was very basic and a little dark but still comfortable. there is a pool table and a huge dvd collection. The best part and the reason we decided to stay here was because we were looking for a pet friendly hostel, something hard to find. They also have nice dogs

My initial impression of this hostel weren't great. The rooms are quite old, and there is a feeling of dampness everywhere. I wanted to leave soon as I arrived. But I ended up staying 3-4 nights because my travel companions wanted to, and after my stay, i decided that at this price, it is a decent bed to sleep in.... More

I stayed in the hostal 3 nights and found it good. I put average because very good is a little bit much. As in the title, stay clear of the bunk beds as they are partially beds, so wood is missing. I slept in a normal dorm bed and have nothing to complain about. The shower seems dirty but it... More

Im a traveller, and i have been traveling for 4 months now, and this is the worst hostel i ever had so far. You pay 8$ and It's not worth it, you can get a much better one in Banos for the same price. It's mildew everywhere. Everywhere in the bathroom, in the rooms, roof and right next to my... More

Good price, great location, safe, good (but small) kitchen. Staff is excellent and the included breakfast is also good. Very good option in Baños. Very helpful with all the activities you can do in the city.
