We were a group of 3 friends who stayed here for 2 nights. The hostel might be tough to locate, but is conveniently located right near the terminal. There was no view from our room which was a bummer. The hostel staff are very helpful and can set you up with any tours you like. Wifi was decent.

My fiance and I stayed here for two days while traveling through Banos. For one thing, it is hands down the cheapest hostel that we've stayed at thus far. We stayed in a 8-people dormitory, which was $6 per person. The rooms are cleaned everyday. In our room, the bathroom was located within the room, which can be a little... More

Hostel D'Matthias provides above all a very friendly and courteous stay in Baños. Reception is willing and able to answer questions regarding the town itself and how to get to various attractions in the area. All rooms, bathrooms, and the kitchen are cleaned daily (sometimes more) by a very friendly woman who will also help you with any hostel needs.... More

I think this was our best hostel since 3 months. Everything what you need. Very clean kitchen, pool table, books, chill area and very nice hosts. Also the room was very decent with a clean private bathroom. Bike rent for 5 dollars a day. Very close to the bus terminal.

A new hostal very close to the main bus terminal. Very clean rooms with nice decor. The service is excellent with any request met. You can exchange books here or arrange tours. The kitchen is well equipped too. Wifi works well but seemed to be slower when cloudy?! That's not their fault of course. Advise if you are a couple... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights while exploring Banos. The room was very nice and clean and the staff were super nice and helpful. They do not speak much English but it wasn't a problem.

this one was the best over my trip: friendly and helpful stuff, competitive price, unlimited and really hot water (very scarce resource in Ecuador), walking distance to most destinations (well Banos is a small town)

D'Mathias is in a great location in Banos and is very affordable with clean rooms and extremely helpful staff. There is a good kitchen and common room located on the main floor, as well as an outdoor area to eat. The roof patio has a pool table and is a good place to relax.

We stayed here for 3 nights and loved this place. We met many great people to talk about adventures of the day and have drinks with in the evenings.
