My boyfriend and I stayed there during our stay in Banos. The hostel is not a hotel, and there are no rooms with double bed, but it worth the price! Every room have a privet bathroom, and it is clean and cozy. The breakfast is very good and is included in the price. The owners and the crew are very... More

This is a cute family run hostel with really genuine owners who try to help you out a lot in Banos. It's a town with a gazillion places to stay and so much to do, and it can be overwhelming and hard to choose. This place is clean, laid back and centrally located and very cheap, with no frills but... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in a private 2 bedroom with a private bath. The staff was very kind and let us leave our packs there when we went camping. There is a kitchen to use and yummy breakfast is included. Very comfortable, we would stay again!

It's a hostal so you can expect the basics, loud 20 year olds, and uncomfortable beds. What we didn't expect was to not have water to shower or brush our teeth. When we asked the front desk why there was no water. There was response was all of Banos' water would be out for the next hour. Big fat lie!... More

We spent four nights here, and were taken in without a reservation. The staff were helpful, the breakfast was tasty, and there were a few different areas downstairs to hang out in. It didn't feel very social though. Our twin room with private bathroom was great as we both got sick, and the tv was very much appreciated. The school... More

Our stay was very good, clean rooms and privet bathroom. Grate staff and service, gladly help with any request and problem. Breakfast came included, very rich and tasty with a lot of variety. Possible to arrange attractions from the hostel itself comfortably. Overall great place, worth staying.

Stayed there in the double room that was very clean and lovely. Hot water was always available. Breakfast is really good and also the restaurant is quite nice. The owners were nice and helpful. They have computers that actually work. In the hostel there is a massive amount of films that you can watch. Can't recommend it highly enough

We stayed in arelatively good room with private bathroom. The standard is very basic and the cost was more than reasonable. Location is good, within 10 min walk from bus station and few min to center. Wifi is available in room and quite fast. They serve good breakfast which is included. This hostal is perfect for young travellers. It has... More
