“Great rooms, really nice staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

Great hostal in Banos! I had a private double bed room for $11 per night including a big breakfast every morning. Insane value!

The hostal staff is so friendly and kind. I felt extremely comfortable my whole time there.

Rooms were great. Beds super comfy.

Location is right in the center and close to everything.

Had a wonderful time here!

I arrived in Banos by myself without a clue about where to stay. Luckily, I wandered into Hostel Eruption because it was located right in the middle of the town. I was immediately greeted by MJ, who couldn't have been a more helpful staff member. He made me feel right at home, is a great drinking buddy, and gave me great advice about what to do while I was here.

This hostel provides great value; my dorm room cost $8.50/night with breakfast included. They also provide you with a towel, soap, and shampoo. Lockers that can fit a backpack are provided in the rooms as well. The hostel also has happy hour deals and cooks one hell of a steak taco.

What else is there to think about? Stay here when you're in Banos!

We had a wonderful stay at the hostal. However, the internet was often down and the bathroom always seemed to smell. The location was awesome. The food at the restaraunt was amazing and you can't beat the price of drinks for guests who stay there. The only thing is MJ was the only one who knew how to make drinks. Having MJ there was probably the best part of our stay. Not because of the drinks but because of how helpful he was. He went out of his way to ensure that we enjoyed our stay...not just at the hostel but in Banos in general. As soon as we got there he sat down with us and helped us plan out our weekend of activities and help set all of them up. He really made the weekend and the hospitaity at the hostel.

I had a wonderful stay at this hostel. Our room was clean and spacious and breakfast (which is included!) was a great selection. The best thing about the hostel was the staff, they were very attentive, kind and extremely helpful... They gave us lots of information on the many activities available in and around Banos. Highly recommend staying here.

We stayed at Hostal Erupcion after our initial booking at another hostel did not work out. What a pleasant surprise. This hostel was clean and welcoming. The staff was wonderful and very accommodating. The shower was hot and the breakfast was excellent. The location right in the main square is also a bonus. Great value for a great stay.

For what you pay, you really get your money's worth. Clean room, hot shower, tasty breakfast of eggs, bread, juice and tea. We arrived very late (due to traffic in Quito), but the owner was so sweet and accommodating. If you love dogs, you'll love the owner's pup, Google. We did! Typically I prefer the amenities that hotels offer (compared to hostels) but this was great. My husband and I will definitely return on our next trip to Baños.
