La Casa del Molino Blanco Bed & Breakfast

Reviewed 30 June 2014

I spent a weekend at La Casa del Molino Blanco, a neat, clean, comfortable and quiet hostel, located at the edge of Baños (although just a 7-minute walk from the town’s cosmopolitan center). Señora Elba was very kind and helpful, giving you the sense of being at home. She even got out of her way (and against her profit) to arrange a lower rate for me with Booking.com, since the website did not give me the choice of reserving a single, only a double, room. This amounted to a 32% savings for me. I recommend La Casa del Molino Blanco as a great value for its money.

I enjoy our beautiful rooms, cleanliness, tranquility and our excellent breakfast. We worry that the little time you have the passenger, make the most with adventure activities and walks. We coordinate departures from the hostel with the guarantee of quality and service. Our prices are really comfortable, for a luxury stay and complete and different breakfast every day.All staff and hotel is pleased to have served.

My room was very large, firm comfortable queen size bed and lots of place to put clothes and luggage away. Next door bathroom was big, with plenty of hot water for the shower. Entire hostel was very clean, and a quiet place to sleep at night. Room came with a safe-deposit box as well. Also, La Casa del Molino Blanco is right next to the trails going up the mountain. The people running the hostel were very nice and helpful, and breakfast was excellent.

This hostel is just a short walk from the bus terminal, and only a few blocks from the town center, but far enough away to be quiet. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and reasonably priced. The hot water is actually hot, not tepid like in some places. Breakfast is included in the room rate and is quite good. The hosts are happy to share suggestions on worthwhile things to do, not just in Banos but for your onward travel.

It's up a big hill 10 mins from the centre, which is not great when walking from the bus stop, but fine after. Our room was nice and breakfast was good, the place was always clean, no complaints there.

There was a weird atmosphere there though, the owners weren't rude to us at all, but we just felt a bit uncomfortable and awkward. Can't really put my finger on why, was just things like giving them some laundry, which was only a few items, then being told it weighed 1.7kg clean but it had weighed 2kg when it was dirty (bizarre!) and just a lack of friendliness from them.

Thank you very much for your comments and suggestions, our goal was to serve the best, too bad you were not very sociable even her husband did not answer the greeting, in terms of clothing is weighed in front of the passengers and when it does is dirty, that's the laundry service. Happy travels!

Loved our stay at the hostel, very clean, quiet with a filling breakfast and nice staff. Location wise really close to center. Only drawback: you need to pay to leave your luggage there after check-out, so far it's always been free wherever I was.

Thank you very much for your nice comment, it was a pleasure having you in my small hostel, and thank you for your suggestion. But the extra cost is not only instruct bags until night, use a shower towel, kitchen, and internet services. After the time of check out I've also traveled and after the time of check out I had to pay additional costs if you only use the bathroom, and custom my suitcase that is normal.

This hostel has all refurbished rooms and is extremely clean. I had a very cosy single room. The location is excellent, just 10 minutes walk to the center, but in a dead end street, so no traffic noise, and everybody is made aware that it is not a party hostel. There are bikes for rent and the hike to the mirador de la virgen starts right behind.
Breakfast was very varied with home made bread, cake and jam. The spacious and clean kitchen was available for guests after breakfast. The owners were always helpful and friendly.

This was the second hostel i stayed at during my trip ad the first one wasnt really great so i wasnt expecting much, but it didnt take long for me to fall in love with the place. The hostel is very clean and the breakfast included offer a lot of choice. Every morning during breakfast Elba and Jimmy were there to greet us with smiles and jokes. The hostel is a bit farther than the others from the city center but 2 minutes away from the mountain trails
