“Best in town”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

My boyfriend and I stayed there during our stay in Banos.
The hostel is not a hotel, and there are no rooms with double bed, but it worth the price!
Every room have a privet bathroom, and it is clean and cozy. The breakfast is very good and is included in the price. The owners and the crew are very nice and will be glad to help you with everything in and out of town. They also have a very nice travel agency.

This is a cute family run hostel with really genuine owners who try to help you out a lot in Banos. It's a town with a gazillion places to stay and so much to do, and it can be overwhelming and hard to choose. This place is clean, laid back and centrally located and very cheap, with no frills but good wifi. I'd recommend as the owners were very personal and it does the job - a good nights sleep.

We stayed here for 3 nights in a private 2 bedroom with a private bath. The staff was very kind and let us leave our packs there when we went camping. There is a kitchen to use and yummy breakfast is included. Very comfortable, we would stay again!

It's a hostal so you can expect the basics, loud 20 year olds, and uncomfortable beds.
What we didn't expect was to not have water to shower or brush our teeth. When we asked the front desk why there was no water. There was response was all of Banos' water would be out for the next hour. Big fat lie! Not even five minutes later we weren't even a block away and their water works perfectly.
The water went in an out for the next day we were at this hostal. It didn't stop there though with the water situation they also claim to have hot water. I saw other comments about no hot water and then I saw the owner quite on the ball to say we have hot water and you should have just told us if there was a problem. Well we let them know twice and no hot water ever magically appeared.
Saving the worst us the smell! For whatever reason, it smelled like a sewer! We had to keep the bathroom door closed window open and bathroom window open. It smelled of a portopotty. It was very strong no matter our attempts to help the smell. I would say they have some serious plumbing issues.
Now if they somehow gave enough to fix the water/sewage issue the location is great, good price, and they had enough beds to accommodate my group of five. We didn't try any of the food so can't comment on that.
Happy traveling!

We spent four nights here, and were taken in without a reservation. The staff were helpful, the breakfast was tasty, and there were a few different areas downstairs to hang out in. It didn't feel very social though. Our twin room with private bathroom was great as we both got sick, and the tv was very much appreciated. The school and church bells were a bit noisy, but that was the only real downside.

Our stay was very good, clean rooms and privet bathroom. Grate staff and service, gladly help with any request and problem. Breakfast came included, very rich and tasty with a lot of variety. Possible to arrange attractions from the hostel itself comfortably. Overall great place, worth staying.

Stayed there in the double room that was very clean and lovely. Hot water was always available. Breakfast is really good and also the restaurant is quite nice. The owners were nice and helpful. They have computers that actually work. In the hostel there is a massive amount of films that you can watch.
Can't recommend it highly enough
