Baños is a magical place. Everyone should visit this place at least once. This hostel was clean, great service and great location. Everything we needed and more we found it in this place. 100% recommended.

The location of the hostel was extremely convenient for all the activities we had planned in Banos and it was close to the bust station, so was easy to find. We had a private room and private bath, with breakfast included, for an extremely affordable price! Free WiFi as well. Definitely recommend it, for travelers on a budget.

Hostel with restaurant. Clean room. Hot shower. TV in room. Restaurant kitchen can be used by guests but this felt awkward. Breakfast not included, but can buy on site or in town. Lunches and dinners available also. Bar, beer $2 a bottle.

Excellent service and very friendly staff. The location is incredible, walking distance to everything in Baños. Just ask Henry or anyone of the staff what you need and they will point you in the right direction. Don't miss Google the very friendly english bulldog who is part of the staff if you will.

This review is long over-due, but I just got back on the TA kick and want to give Henry and his staff a big shot out. Ecuador is awesome and one of the main reasons is the people. The owner is just an all-around genuine guy who helped me out a ton...actually helped make a plane ticket for me at...

We stayed here for four nights. This is a very nice and clean hostel. The staff is great at helping you navigate all the Banos and the rest of Ecuador has to offer. Breakfast isn't included but you get access to the kitchen to make your own food. The rooms are big and the beds are good enough. The water...

We only ate at the restaurant and did not stay at the hostel. Very bad food. Also, way over priced. I would be more specific but there are too many things to complain about. Questionable quality of meet, no flavor, incredible amounts of oil. We had the filet, tacos and apanodo. All were bad. Only ate it because we were...
