Our room was great, the view from balcony excellent. Only a couple of rooms have balconies so can't comment about them. Simply furnished, comfortable bed, table and chairs, very small clothes cupboard. Everything was clean, except the drain the the floor in the bathroom. The hostel is a none party place, located slightly out of the centre. (Banos is tiny)....

Earlier this week I spent a night at this hotel. For the low price of my room I was very pleased. It was clean, the bed was comfortable, and I had a very nice view from my balcony. If I would have spent more time in Banos I would have stayed there.

Everything about our stay at Princesa Maria was great. Friendly staff, colorful and clean building, solid WiFi, cozy but nice rooms. Close to downtown but not too close. We will definitely stay here again if we return to Baños.

We had a double room here and it was beautiful. Large room with a desk and chairs, a balcony and a spotless bathroom with hot water. The staff were extremely helpful and even let us have a later checkout to make sure we could fit everything in to our short visit. Would really recommend this hostel.

The guesthouse is run by a wonderful gentleman named Victor and his wife Mira. Victor is very friendly and exceedingly helpful and Mira does a great job conscientiously cleaning the premises. We stayed in a double room and it was spacious, bright and well maintained. The shower had reliable hot water with good pressure. The common area was comfortable and...

We really enjoyed our stay here. Victor could not have been more kind and welcoming. When we arrived he was so thorough with explaining all Baños has to offer. He spoke slowly in Spanish, which we really appreciated. The hostel is bright and very clean. We had a spacious room with lovely bathroom and great shower - very hot water...

Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. We booked several nights in this hostel and had to book a few extra because of tour dates changing, etc. We were helpfully given the same room each time. The staff are vigilant to your needs and actively check to see if you may need anything, and have the patience of saints given my non-existent...
