Hostal D' Mathias
Ranked #2 of 77 Specialty Lodging in Banos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 12, 2012

In terms of value, this place is impossible to beat. Super clean and well-made rooms. Hot, HOT water and tidy bathrooms. Fully furnished kitchen. Rooftop pool table with great 360 views of the town. This hostal has charm, and the owner, Pamela, is possibly the friendliest and most helpful person in town. For $6 a night (slightly more during high season) you cannot find a more comfortable and relaxing place to stay. Truly one of the best kept hotels in Banos.

we arrived to banos in a hurry and needed to decide on which hostel we'll be staying the week. a friend recommended this hostel and we decided to check it out. INCREDIBLE! this is the best hostel we had in Ecuador yet. It's a minute walk from the bus terminal - came useful since we arrived to banos at the middle of the night. the staff is great! Pamela, the household of the hostel is very nice and helpful, doesn't matter in what hour of the day. Her husband operates a travel agency, so every attraction in banos is right in your palm (and in really good prices too). the rooms are clean and cozy and the beds are very comfortable! they have cable tv on every room, and has infinate hot water supply.

the only disadvantage of this hostel is that there's no breakfast, however the hostel has fully accessorized kitchen and we simply bought ingridients on the grocery and cooked our own breakfasts - was really fun!

to sum it up: we had a great experience here, the price really pays off. we highly recommend this hostel, and won't regret for a second that we spent a week here.

Room Tip: we slept at room number 1 (on the 1st floor) and it was a bit noisy sometimes (you can hear voices f...

We arrived early afternoon to Banos and headed straight to D'Mathais after being recommended it by two Candian guys. Very close to the bus station so easy to find - close to all the bars and resturants as well so no taxi's needed. Pamela (the owner) was so welcoming, showing us around the hostal and to our room. We didn't know what we wanted to do in Banos and so she asked her friend to come over to explain the different tours and activities - really helpful! The room was absolutely spotless, as was the communal areas. GREAT wifi on all floors (very hard to find!) and even the use of a desk top computer downstairs. Free tea and coffee all day, free use of the kitchen with salt pepper oil and other condiments! We signed out the next day as we were getting a night bus to guayquil, left our bags in a lcoked room and Pamela was more than happy for us to come back at the end of the day and use the kitchen/bathroom before we caught our bus. Not only was this a great help, but it turned out the bus was fully booked so we couldnt leave that night - Pamela had no room so was going to get us picked up and moved to another hostal, but before that she quickly rang the bus company, found out there was space on the night bus, and made sure we got on the bus safely - WHAT A STAR!! A must stay in Banos! Thanks Pamela!
