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.

The room was clean when we checked in and the breakfast was delicious - either a pancake with a small fruit salad or eggs/bread. The staff was nice and helpful and when I wanted to take a shower and found out there was no hot water left ( it was around 12 pm ) the receptionist immediately took care of... More

We loved Hostal Transilvania- they were fantastic. So friendly and informative, family run and rooms were standard. Great value for money and breakfasts included! Also a lovely common area outside, with a large selection of DVDs for those rainy days!

Only the breakfest is good You cant stay outside your room whenever you want , even in the room near the reception you can stay only until some hour(like 00:30) The manager and his wife very unfriendly!! If you go for one night it's good, but more than a one night, does'nt worth it:)

We don´t let people use the common areas after midnight, in order to keep it quiet so our guest can have a good night sleep, it is more than reasonable. More

My fiance and I stayed at this hostel for 2 nights and have enjoyed our stay in there. Located near the church and restaurants/tour operators/market. We watched a very tense World Cup game here along with other backpackers staying in the hostel (we make it a point to come home early haha), it was really nice. The owners are very... More

good location, close to the center. Great breakfasts included. Good wifi also in the rooms + 3 guest computers. staff are very friendly and offer plenty of activities in the area. The price is really good, only 17 dollars for a couple in a private room, breakfast included.
