I stayed for 3 nights here with my husband. I found it to be one of the better hostels in Ecuador, especially for the price. It is hard to find such good places for the great prices. They were very accommodating and helpful with all of our questions. Our room was very clean and comfortable. It can be a little...

My family and I have traveling through Peru and Ecuador. We chose Hotel Chimenea based on TA reviews. We stayed 12 days and mostly it was great stay but a few things could use some improvement. The location is excellent just a few off the plaza. Our room had a great view of the falls. Wifi is spotty on the...

We stayed in a private room at Chiminea and were impressed by the size of the room as well as its value for money (20$ per room per night, which is pretty cheap for SA). Over our four day stay the room was cleaned each day, which never happened at any other hostel during our time in Ecuador. The staff...

This was a beautiful hostel on a great location. We had a private room with our own balcony that looked out on to the pool and a waterfall. It was very clean and the wifi was good. There was a kitchen and computers for use. The staff were very helpful and friendly. There was also a fun steam box treatment...

Nice and big hostel with clean dorms. Delicious breakfast to a good price. The staff was really helpful and friendly, and when we wanted to cancel the last day we was suppose to stay they help us with a smile. Good location close to one of the hot springs in town

This hotel is the original of the ones with the same names. It includes a jacuzzi (for an extra cost), a small pool, and a spa. It is located very near to the hot spring pools, and waterfall in Banos. We found it in my book, and called on our way into Banos. For $17 per person, we had a...

A lovely hostel at a fantastic rate who are very accommodating. The breakfast offered is lovely and affordable. We didn't use all of their facilities but they have a little pool and a spa along with their computers downstairs. Location is perfect for central Baños, would definitely come back!

We were travelling as a group of 4 and we managed to just walk in without a reservation and get a lovely 4 bed dorm for an excellent price. The roof terrace is gorgeous, the breakfast was a great price and very speedy, the pool area lovely. We arranged a full body massage through reception and were able to have...

We were quite pleased when we were shown to our room on the third floor, overlooking the pool and facing the waterfall. Towels and sheets were changed daily and there was plenty of hot water (great water pressure too!). The terrace on the floor above us was a nice place to have breakfast in the morning and just hang out...
