The hostel is extremely basic but a great place. Don't expect much more than a hot shower, a place to sleep and good breakfast. The rooms are ok, the installations are ok. However, once you consider its like $9 per person that ok turns into a very good. I would recommend people staying here for a few nights. I will...

The hostel is in a great location, just one block from the main square. The staff are very helpful and are full of information about all of the activities in Banos. The breakfast was included and was amazing; expecially the granola and yoghurt! Good book exchange and good wifi signal.

We were having a great time at Hostel Transilvania up until one morning after breakfast the female owner informed us that she had only booked us in for two nights (when we had booked 3) and that we were required to be checked out in an hour. She handled this whole ordeal terribly making it out to be our fault...

We stayed 2 nights in a double room on the third floor. Rooms are very nice, decorated and comfy, the breakfast is very good (oh, the fluffiness of the pancake) and the staff very helpful. We booked a cruise to the Galapagos through the hostel and a few more activities in baños. Also when my wife got sick they advised...

Basic rooms, good hot showers, overal good WiFi, nice common area, really nice breakfast. One bad thing, you can only use the kitchen at impossible hours (2pm to 5pm and from 9pm to midnight). For budget reasons we want to cook ourselves but these hours just make it kind of difficult.

Nice staff, delicious free breakfast, cool garden area, clean, fantastic location. And the cutest kitten ever. The rooms get a bit damp, I think because of a lack of ventilation plus humidity, but all in all great value for money. It books out fast so reserve in advance if you can. I would stay here again.

Good location near centre of town. Basic rooms but at their price are great value. Friendly family run place, kindly looked after us when we got ill. Also able to book various organised activities through the hostel which was very convenient. Good breakfast included in price!

“We stayed in 3 different rooms, the top floor had great views but we decided to stay on the ground floor rather than carry our super heavy luggage all the way up again, the ground floor was easier, but a little noisier since it opens onto the garden.”
