“Baños is amazing!!”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Loved my stay here- amazing room with television, wifi in room, full kitchen, and very nice staff. Towel included. Tons to do in banos. Close to bus stop- just one block. Chilly at night but have blankets so stayed pretty warm. Water not very hot but that's typical. Love this place. Comfy beds too. Not too many people.

Room Tip: Get the shared dorm and take the double bed. :)

I was only able to stay in Baños for one night, which is a total shame because this might be the best place that I have stayed at a very reasonable price. Everything was super clean. It's location near the bus was helpful. The staff was very friendly and being able to access the internet from my room was very helpful since most places I've stayed here you can only gain access if you're in the lobby. Can't recommend this place highly enough.

Mixed experience as the hostel and its facilities are excellent. The rooms are great with hot showers and cable TV. Nice kitchen. The major problem during our stay was the presence of an endless amount of Argentinian teenagers/students who basically seemed to have the run of the place. On the first night we were kept up until 4am and then we moved rooms to the 5th floor which was nice and quiet. However the kids used the communal areas like it was their own and every morning we came down to find the kitchen a complete mess. Everything dirty piled up in the sink and mess everywhere. Management seemed to shrug their shoulders (although they did clean everything up themselves). So maybe we were just unlucky but I suggest that the owner/manager should ensure that their hostel isn't run like a youth club for obnoxious kids on holiday!

Room Tip: Head to the 5th floor for more peace and quiet as you can hear everything from the kitchen/lounge u...

This hostel was brilliant, lovely comfy beds, rooms nice size, bathrooms were sparkling clean, hot water all the time. Kitchen was really nice also, good facilities. The owners were very friendly and helpful all the time. There was a good computer in the communal area with good internet connection. Also, the hostel is 2 mins walk from bus station, and Banos is quite small so you´re only a couple of minutes from the shops/bars/restaurants too.
Soa big thumbs up for Hostel D´Mathias.

Gorgeous new hostal near bus station, always someone handy to assist, great wifi (router on every floor), flat screens TVs, complete kitchen, pool table roof, plants and art everywhere, fireplace in social room. A true cut above. I am staying over here much longer than planned.
Caution, $6 was the new-place promotion. You will probably pay $8 or more, and worth every penny!

Room Tip: Short walk to everything, but have to put up with street noise.

We had a room at the top floor - everything in it looked very new. The bed was very confy and clean, the bathroom had a good size with a hot shower, Wifi was fine and finally we had a flat screen tv in it! And that all you get for 12 USD per room. There is no better value for money!
Furthermore the staff was very friendly and helpful. We left our laundry there and get it back the next day for a good price.

From the bus station you can easily walk and you are close to all the attractions of Banos!

For $6, you get a nice room with a bathroom, tv and wifi in your room. Sooo good!
Its really close to the bus station, just cross the street.
The room we got had a wide bed wth bunkbeds. What I loved about it is the beds are firm with 3 layers of blankets. For a person like me that gets cold easily, it was perfect!
The hardwood floors is a bonus for me bec it wasnt cold to walk around barefoot in the room.
Really hot water for showers.
Theres free water in the kitchen, you can boil some water to make tea and cook.
Wifi is strong, there are 3 wifi chanels that you can choose from, depending which one will give you a stronger signal. Also theres a pc downstairs.
If you just want to chill out, you can watch a dvd at the common room.
Theres also a pool table at the top floor.

Because we stayed 4 nights, we needed the room cleaned and I thought they'd just take out the trash and remake the beds but they changed the beddings, cleaned up and I think even changed the shower curtain. :)

If you want your laundry done, they take care of it.

I miss this place and want to come back!
