We are the hostel with the best location in the city with a rooftop bar and panoramic views of the surrounding area - mountains, a waterfall and the entire city of Baños!

The iconic Plantas y Blanco Hostel, also known as P&B, is famous for bringing together amazing people. You can sit by the campfire, play the guitar, have a PlayStation break, enjoy billiards, and TV room with Netflix.

Breakfasts served in the café on the panoramic terrace, which are a perfect way to start the day. You can order here freshly squeezed juices, homemade marmalade, fruit salads, raw options, or go traditional with scrambled eggs and homemade freshly-baked bread with coffee.
We strive for the highest standards in cleanliness, and have a full time staff that help us keep every corner of our hostel clean, every day. We´re always willing to help and are eager to get to learn about your adventures.

You can taste our specialties in gourmet dinners and cocktails in both the rooftop bar and the restaurant next door (surprise! It´s also ours!) The restaurant has a very special atmosphere that you have to feel for yourself, so we won´t ruin the surprise by trying to describe it.

    Super nice and cheap hostel, close to everything important in Baños. Also hot showers! Kitchen has everything needed. Wifi is not as good as told by the description but they seem to work on it.

    Generell kann ich das Plantas y Blanco sehr empfehlen. Es ist ein Hostel mit wunderschöner Dachterrasse in zentraler Lage. Auch ein Zimmerwechsel wurde anstandslos und schnell durchgeführt. Es waren, vor allem am Wochenende, sehr viele feierlustige junge Leute da was den Lautstärkepegel sehr beeinflusst hat.

    Die Dusche war leider kalt :( und schade, dass das Frühstück so teuer ist, hätte es nämlich gerne probiert. Ansonsten alles top: Mitarbeiter und Ambiente!

    Very nice hostel with comfy beds and clean, hot! Showers and toilets. Rooms could be locked but there were no personal lockers in the room, you can leave important things in a safe at reception though. Got fresh shower towels. Breakfast is a bit expensive but really good and the view from the roof terrace is beautiful. Didn't try the restaurant next door but there are lots of good restaurants 2-3 minutes away and cheap massages right across the street!

    I love the terrace and all the chill areas. Staff is really nice helpful (would also recommend the tour company across the street). When I was there it was quite empty though.

    Very basic hostel, bathrooms and showers could use a polish. Breakfast can be ordered in the morning and is good but quite expensive. During my stay the hostel was nearly empty but staff had their own party nevertheless.

    the room was more expensive than indicated in hostelworld, when I told the girl at the reception that in this case i want to go to another hostel she told me hat she would tell hostel world that I would have been a no show and so I would have to pay one Night anyway. It is not really a hostal atmosphere, almost no windows and evwrything is cold and dark, didnt feel comfortable or welcomed. only the ladies that make breakfast and clean the rooms are very nice and do a great Job!
