The Magic Stone is truly a wonderful place to stay. It is spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and very, very comfortable. The Danish couple who own Magic Stone are genuinely lovely, kind people who are hospitable and helpful. You can tell they really like people! The breakfasts they provide are yummy! Magic Stone is only a short stroll from Banos township. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there!

We were approached at the bus station, by the host of this hostel. We couldnt have been cared for any better by these absolutely wonderful people. There were two guest houses, a pool is being put in, and a spectacular view of Banos. The design and cleanliness of the rooms and house, is just inspiring. Surrounded by the mountains, they serve a wonderful breakfast with breads, and are wonderful with places to visit. I only suggest you plan on staying for longer than a few days.

I'm grateful that I stayed at Magic Stone before the world has discovered this gem, and there aren't any reservations left!

This trip changed my time in Ecuador from "good" to "more than excellent." The friendliness of the owners, the breathless beautify of the surroundings, and the the coziness of the guesthouse are things that you can't find anywhere else.

If you are traveling alone, with friends, or as a couple, this "hostel" will make your trip better than you can imagine.

I gave this a rating of "Excellent" because "More than Excellent" wasn't an option.

I hope to return someday.
