For me, my hotel is "base camp". This hostal is exactly that - a back-packers place, mainly young folks that are trekking there way about. I was totally satisfied with the staff ( VERY helpfu - know a little Spanish), the location was great. If you want to cook, the common kitchen is well stocked. If on a budget, this...

We stayed here for 3 nights, super cheap price for a dorm $6US. Rooms cleaned everyday with beds made. Helpful, friendly staff!! They staff really made our stay. Can book tours through them for a very cheap price and great quality. They had a cheap laundry service which came back to us in less than 12 hours. Felt like home,...

Our group of five (2 adults and 3 children) stayed here for 6 nights. We extended our stay by a couple of nights, which must say something for the place. We've been travelling for 4 months and this is only the second kitchen in that time which was properly set-up (cleaning materials, sufficient plates, utensils, cups, cutlery etc). It did...

We stayed there for a few nights and loved the laidback atmosphere. The staff is very helpful, even though their English is not that great we still managed to communicate. The prices for the activities such as rafting and canyoning are also cheap compared to other tour operators in town. Another plus: it is a few minutes from the bus...

This is a small home for travellers in the centre of Baños. The hotel has a lovely shared space (living room with TV and DVDs), and a great, clean kitchen, where they offer all sorts of teas and coffee for free all day. The room was spacious, clean, and cozy. Also, the bathroom was clean and with a hot shower....

The hostel is very homely, it's kept very clean . The staff is very nice and helpful. You are not allowed guests and doesn't really have a very social/ drinking vibe. Other than that the hostel is great, nice kitchen, nice rooftop area as well as an open air area on the top floor with a pool table w/tables and...

This place has everything you could want from a hostel - cheap price, friendly staff, very clean, best cooking facilities we have encountered yet and fantastic location. You get free mineral water included which is such a bonus! Other positives - TV, computers, wifi, games, a beautiful roof view with a cute herb garden. The staff really went out of...

Great vibes all around in this hostel, from the rooms to the people staying there. New towels every day, clean kitchen, and awesome bang for the buck. Pamela is the person who owns this hostel, and she takes wonderful care of the hostel and is very accommodating. She also informed us very well (in simple Español and English!) about the...

Greatest value we found in Ecuador for an hostel! When we got there the staff was awesome, showed us all the spot we had to know on a map (market, treks, thermal baths) with prices and schedule. We got a bunk for only 6$ and it was very clean with plenty of locker and a private bathroom (very clean with...
