Liked: This hostel had a good common room with a kitchen and bar if you were hungry. A good spot if you are looking to meet other backpackers. The staff spoke English which was nice because my Spanish isn't that great. It was within walking distance to the main square.

Disliked: I was hoping to meet more people and it was not as busy and I had hoped. I ended up getting a 5 bedroom female dorm to myself. The WIFI was not that great and didn't work well. It was very loud and hard to sleep at night. Whatever building is right next door constanty had music playing. The breakfast was a good perk but nothing too special (bread, bananas, juice, coffee, and oatmeal.)

Liked: Great value for money, good breakfast and helpful staff. Free dinner is a plus and the atmosphere is great!!

Disliked: There were only 8lockers in the 10 bed dorm and the window of the door was smashed meaning you could reach in and unlock the door from outside, these things can be easily fixed though!!

Liked: Nice location. Great food and fresh deserts not bad value. Free dinner 3 days a week. Great atmosphere. Good sized rooms and great beds. Changed and stayed 4 nights instead of 2 as planned.

Disliked: Although there were many great things. I felt the staff weren't too friendly. At times I found them rude. They need to always put the customer first. I complained one night about being cold and was told to out more clothes on. One member of staff spoke limited English and sometimes sounded rude but maybe didn't mean too. I wanted my room key and was told to wait 5 mins whilst he cleaned the dishes! Nights at the hostel were dull at times.

Liked: Enjoyable stay The facilities were excellent I enjoyed the social area because the drinks were good and cold. This area also had a kitchen and the pizza was amazing. These services should not be underestimated as often you return to the bed exhausted from the days activities and being able to eat drink and be merry within yards of your bed is sublime. Excellent breadth of tours and services tailored towards the clientele. Large private rooms and subdued relaxed surroundings. I love the owners dogs too because they are really lovely and welcoming when I saw them. David

Liked: The beds are very comfortable with lots of space for your stuff and space between the beds. They have a small collection of very friendly cats and dogs which as an animal lover i was very happy with. All of the staff are very happy to help. The comunal spaces are big and comfortable, with working computers! This hostel has a great vibe and is very good value for money.

Disliked: The breakfast ends very early in the morning.

15 January 2014 Paul would recommend this property

Liked: The hostel is well located, just a short walk from the town (most places in Banos are, to be fair) and had a nice big common room with pool tables, computers, a bar and WiFi. The homemade cakes are delicious, the WiFi was a bit mediocre, the beers were reasonably priced. We had a double room which was a good size and came with ensuite. The shower wasn't particularly warm, but then Banos is a pretty warm place so it wasn't the end of the world. Staff were friendly on the most part, although one guy seemed to take a disliking to my girlfriend...probably because she ate all the cake.

Disliked: Paul left no negative feedback.

Liked: Common room pretty awesome, nice set up, free breakfast (always a bonus), WiFi even in the rooms, close to bus station - pretty awesome!

Disliked: Not having lockers in the rooms was a bit of a pain but they will store your valuables in another room if you want which is good. Room pretty small but didn´t bother me personally
