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

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
