There is a rooftop common area to hang out with a dirty kitchen for cooking. The wifi only works in the tiny reception area which isn't that great. It's a little run down and my room's dark and without windows but I don't mind as I only go to sleep there. Bathroom's something to reckon with. It is close to... More

There is no common area to hang out in and the wifi only works in the reception area and isn't the greatest. We booked through HostelWorld but when we turned up they had no clue and told us there weren't any rooms available. We had to go back that night and talk to the owner. When the owner finally showed... More

Stayed at CharVic for 18 nights and paid about $4.50 a night for a small private room with shared shower...I really enjoyed staying here and Daniel the owner is extremely friendly and helpful with any information you need here in Banos as well as other places nearby. From the rooftop you have an amazing 360 view of the surrounding mountains... More

I have to say, I think this was the worst hostel we ever stayed at! I'm very sorry to have to give a bad evaluation since the owner was really nice, but our room was really bad.... We only stayed one night in a room with a private bathroom for 15$. The bathroom hadn't been cleaned, since there was hair... More

We stayed at Baños for three nights. We payed 6 bucks each for a private. The room was good and clean. The beds were alright. The only thing we had a issue was with the restroom that was a but smelly and there was some crazy noice with some wireing and flickering lights. Great if you want to safe money... More

I'm a backpacker and traveling through south america. I stayed at charvic for the price. $4.50 for a private room is amazing. The rooms are clean and the people are nice. It's a little run down but I don't mind. It has a rooftop and a kitchen for cooking.

Hostal Charvic is good value for money and the rooms very cosy. The bed and pillows were excellent and the shower super hot. Daniel and his staff deserve great appraisal for all the work they do in keeping clientele happy. It´s also super close to everything in little Banos and you will get special insider info upon arrival on where... More

I stayed here and loved it, the owner is a lovely man who looks after his 2 young boys most days. The other staff here are lovely and funny. The facilities are huge rooms, my room had a balcony, private bathroom, cable TV and a kitchenette type room on the roof which also has a terrace. They washed my clothes... More
