“One of my favorite hostels yet!”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

This is a great hostel to stay in when you go to Baños! I absolutely highly recommend it. The staff/owners are so sweet and accommodating. The rooms and the hostel itself is very clean and nice. There is a common room full of movies you can watch. There is hot water and the rooms are great! Especially as a solo traveler, I felt like my stay here was safe, fun, and great! It's close to everything and there is a lot to do in this town! The hostel even organized different adventure activities for you for pretty cheap! Definitely recommend staying here when you are in Baños!

We really enjoyed our stay here. La Casa del Molino Blanco is family runned guesthouse, around 10 minutes away from the city center by walking. Room was very nice, new and clean, and it was cleaned daily. Bathroom was shared, but it was excellent - also looked very new, and the shower had hot water and good water pressure all the time. Breakfast were good - (toasts, bread, butter, jam, ham, cheese, eggs, juice). Wifi was working well all the time. Staff was great - Jimmy was very helpful and spoke English well. This hostel was definitely a good choice.

I spent a weekend at La Casa del Molino Blanco, a neat, clean, comfortable and quiet hostel, located at the edge of Baños (although just a 7-minute walk from the town’s cosmopolitan center). Señora Elba was very kind and helpful, giving you the sense of being at home. She even got out of her way (and against her profit) to arrange a lower rate for me with Booking.com, since the website did not give me the choice of reserving a single, only a double, room. This amounted to a 32% savings for me. I recommend La Casa del Molino Blanco as a great value for its money.

My room was very large, firm comfortable queen size bed and lots of place to put clothes and luggage away. Next door bathroom was big, with plenty of hot water for the shower. Entire hostel was very clean, and a quiet place to sleep at night. Room came with a safe-deposit box as well. Also, La Casa del Molino Blanco is right next to the trails going up the mountain. The people running the hostel were very nice and helpful, and breakfast was excellent.

This hostel is just a short walk from the bus terminal, and only a few blocks from the town center, but far enough away to be quiet. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and reasonably priced. The hot water is actually hot, not tepid like in some places. Breakfast is included in the room rate and is quite good. The hosts are happy to share suggestions on worthwhile things to do, not just in Banos but for your onward travel.

It's up a big hill 10 mins from the centre, which is not great when walking from the bus stop, but fine after. Our room was nice and breakfast was good, the place was always clean, no complaints there.

There was a weird atmosphere there though, the owners weren't rude to us at all, but we just felt a bit uncomfortable and awkward. Can't really put my finger on why, was just things like giving them some laundry, which was only a few items, then being told it weighed 1.7kg clean but it had weighed 2kg when it was dirty (bizarre!) and just a lack of friendliness from them.

Thank you very much for your comments and suggestions, our goal was to serve the best, too bad you were not very sociable even her husband did not answer the greeting, in terms of clothing is weighed in front of the passengers and when it does is dirty, that's the laundry service. Happy travels!
