Baños is a city that will take your breathe away, literally and figuratively! This city is nestled in the valley of a large volcanic mountain range with a stunning scenic route just to get here. If you travel here at night, dont be alarmed when you see in the distance what appears to be a UFO with lights all around...

I went to this Hostel a week ago. It is a good hostel, located just outside of the center, but still a very good location. The food was good, the rooms were good, the staff was just very unfriendly. There was one girl working here while traveling, she was friendly, but the staff that really work here, were unfriendly.

I can't make up my mind if this place is great or if it is really terrible. My boyfriend and I stayed there for 3 nights while in Banos and had a different experience each night. Night 1: The first night we arrived (after making a booking together online) we were told there was only 1 bed left in a...

This hostel is fantastic if you are looking to meet people and have a good time. The main communal area is brilliant with a TV, computers, music playing out, pool tables... There is just generally a great atmosphere. There are also lots of lone travellers who are very willing and happy to chat with other solo travellers like me, so...

This was a nice hostel. The common room was very nice. It had a good pool table, computers, music and generally a good atmosphere. The rooms were good also and it had comfortable bed. The only negatives were the wifi and the staff. The wifi was unreliable and the staff could have been more helpful at times. Overall though I...

I would have given a 2 to this place for the way we were treated by the staff. However, we discussed the owner and he was understanding and admitted the problem. It is hard to describe what happens with the staff. It is as if people who work there are jealous or are angry at foreigners. As if they consider...

I only staid one night, so I couldnt really try out the bar and everything. But I thought, the hostel had a nice vibe. They organize lots of things, have a nice bar (with little snacks and food as well) and the breakfast was really various (oatmeal, rolls, fruit...)! Yummy. Even though you can eat their, they still have a...

We stayed at the hostel for 2 nights. Although the weather was a bit miserable we had a great time. The staff are friendly and always happy to help you with any questions. The bar lady helped us to learn some more Spanish words and the guy we spoke to when we checked out was able to help us with...
