Erupcion Art Hotel & Hostel
Ranked #4 of 52 Banos B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Let me start off by saying we never actually stayed at Hostal Erupcion, so I can't speak for what the rooms are like, but my experience there was fantastic.

My girlfriend and I booked a room there for a Saturday night only to find out that, when we arrived, we had accidentally booked it for the wrong night. Henry, the son of the owners, however did not just kick us to the curb as I feel many others would do. He spent the next half hour calling every other hostal/hotel in town trying to find us a nice, affordable place. The town was absolutely packed so I don't know what we would have done without him. And when he finally found a place, he informed us that it was a ways outside of town. Not to worry though, he, his sister, and his dog Gogol walked us to their car and drove us there completely free of charge! Please remember, we weren't renting a room from them at this point and he wouldn't accept any money. They did this just out of their own kindness.

These are wonderful people, and I hope everyone gives them lots of business because they deserve it!

This was a great hostel centrally located in town. It's about a 5-7 minute walk from the main bus station and right next to the central park.

The only reason I marked down the cleanliness is because the shower looked like it was somewhat getto and a 2-3in pool if water filled the basin after less than a 5 min shower. Otherwise it was fairly clean.

Make sure you bring ear plugs (which is a good idea whereever you go anyway) because it is a great central location so you do have noise from vehicles at night.

The room itself even had a flat screen TV with cable and one English channel (Warner Bros).

The night stay included a generous breakfest of bread, two eggs, coffee and juice on the second floor deck overlooking the central park. My wife and I also had dinner there on the first night that again was a generous portion for a total of $10.

The service overall was excellent. They were able to answer questions about the town and activities. Internet access was great and they had a convenient water dispenser to fill our Nalgines when we left for the day.

We stayed at this hostal for 4 days and really enjoyed it. What we liked is the central location, the nice big breakfast (free) and the amazing hosts. The rooms were fine. They were cleaned daily. What was a bit challenging was the noise level from the street. Because we were right in the center of the town and we were there over the weekend, the streets were full of activity and we heard it all late into the night. Since we were there with our kids, we did not stay out late, so sleeping with all the street noise was quite difficult (our room faced the main street). I would recommend this hostel. If you do plan to go to be in Banos over the weekend, and are not intending to party with the crowd, you may want to ask for a room that does not face the main street.

I was travelling with a group. I had my own room. Our rooms were located two flights up from the street. When you enter from the street, you immediately walk up one set of stairs to the restaurant/office level. I had an inside room with no windows. It was perfectly fine. Bed, bathroom, closet space all were fine. But....it can be noisy when people are in the hallway chatting. The location of this hotel was smack dab in the center of town which is great for walkinng to anything you want to do. Bank ATM is across the street, as well as the pretty central park. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They have parking available in a private lot a few blocks away. Breakfast was very enjoyable out on the common balcony overlooking the bustling activity below. Overall, a good value.

Room Tip: Rooms on the outside with windows can be noisy in the morning when activity starts on the streets be...

This place is pretty decent.
Location wise, it is central to what you need in Banos. Food, adrenaline activity companies, shops and bars.

The hostal was clean and hygienic. The only issue I had was the shower drain. It had been blocked by the girl who showered prior to me. I found a pool of water left in there. Thankfully the staff were efficient and helpful in draining the water for me to shower.

The breakfast here is ok. Nothing special but it gets you through till lunch.

We were attracted to this premises because of the price $11 a night. However, you get what you pay for. We had bunk beds and a bathroom off the room. The water leaked out of the sides of the taps, the shower was cold. There was a smell in the room. We were also on the 4th floor. It is in the centre of Banos though- an excellent location. The restaurant is great, lovely food!
