Hostal Princesa Maria
Ranked #1 of 77 Speciality Lodging in Banos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 June 2014 via mobile

Accidentally came across this place whilst tagging along with another couple who had a booking here and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.

Cheap, comfortable and welcoming. Although victor doesn't speak English, he makes an effort to be clear and concise when speaking to you in spanish, especially for those who are beginning to learn. His charismatic son is usually around and speaks fluent English if necessary anyway.

Victor also gives a great little intro on what to see and do in this beautiful town which is exactly what you're after when passing through here with little-to-no expectations or research on banos.

The best budget accommodation we've had in Ecuador. Clean comfortable room. Hot water. A small but adequate kitchen. A modest stroll from the town centre but with a great little bakery round the corner. The hosts were friendly and welcoming. What more could you ask for.

A clean and welcoming hostel just a short leg stretching walk to the town plaza. We didn't pre book and we're made welcome by the non English speaking manager, a lovely man. Breakfast not provided but kitchen available.

We stayed 3 nights at this Hostal in Baños and it was all we could ask for! Peaceful atmosphere, clean, friendly staff and convenient. Rooms have private bathroom for $9 a person or less! I'd totally recommend this place if visiting Baños and want a quiet place to rest at night.

Room Tip: The only downside it's the neighbour's rooster in the morning so ask for a room overlooking...

If you want to enjoy Banos with a relaxed and secluded atmosphere, this is the place for you. We found it a lovely treat to stay in this beautiful and colorful home with a cute garden and kitchen. The hostel is just outside the tourist area, so it's quite peaceful, but an easy walk to the city center. The owners were very welcoming and very prompt and helpful when we had any questions or concerns. It was a home away from home!
