Really great hostel. There are so many cool antiques and beautiful artwork all around the hostel. The rooms are small but clean, and my room had a pretty view of the mountains. Breakfast is included and is very delicious. Great location - very close to town square and many restaurants and cafe. The hostel owner Luis and his family are...

This is a nice B&B especially for those who can appreciate antiques and arts, it is everywhere. The staff and owners are friendly - although only one person who is not always there is speaking English. They gladly helped on (tour and info) requests, provide a superb map of the area, and do cheap laundry. Room is ok, with a...

Since the moment I walked in I felt very welcoming. The house is full of paintings and great antiques and a fireplace in the dining area to warm you up during the night. The owner is also the tourist guide and the best part he goes to the places with you, takes you to the best restaurants and offers to...

Although this was a bit more than the other hostels we have been staying at, it was worth every penny. The staff is so sweet and caring. The rooms were clean and the showers were very hot (just takes a minute to warm up)! It was also quiet at night which was nice. This is such a unique hostel incorporated...

The second-worst hostal I have stayed at in Ecuador. They use the atrium style common area on the main floor to host mass every night (or at least all of the 2 nights we were there). The preacher yells and shouts, trying to get the crowd of Catholic followers in a fervor. My wife had an ear ache from river...

From the wonderful breakfasts, great location and friendly staff, to the art gallery and minimal price...you really shouldn't stay anywhere else in Baños. I spent about 5 weeks here in 2013, and from the first day to the last the staff were friendly, attentive and knowledgable. Don Luis, the owner, sorted out bike rentals and an American family came back...

This is really a lovely place. The breakfast is one of the best we've had in the four months we've been on the road - fresh fruit, granola, yogurt, passion-fruit honey and delicious bread and jam. The owners are helpful and incredibly responsive to questions or requests. The rooms and seating areas are beautiful and "tranquillo". Again, simply a wonderful...
