I just left this hostel after a 4-day stay. When I checked in, the woman at the desk who spoke very little English, said she would give me a $5/night discount if I paid in cash. She knew I booked the room with Booking.com because she insisted on taking the reservation I had on paper. When I checked out, she...

Had the most amazing view of the waterfall in Banos. Our room was a nice size with a balcony and hammock. Its on a nice quiet street without much traffic. Breakfast was so-so, but the staff was nice and friendly. I think we checked out every hotel in Banos, but this one had the best view/location/cleanliness/price we wanted. Would definitely...

The Posada J is a great place to stay in banos. The place is close to the Hot springs, the rooms are wide and spacious with great paintings in the walls. The breakfast is delicious, not common! I had a great staying at Posada J!

The hotel staff is friendly and helpful, with all things, the rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, and the views of waterfalls and mountains from the balcony are stunning, with the sounds of the waterfalls adding beauty.

I really enjoyed my stay here. The staff/owner was very kind and helpful. Also the included breakfast was outstanding; healthy and tasteful. Further more this was the first hotel offering an actual hot shower instead of the half warm water in most places. Don't forget to book a massage, it was maybe the best massage I ever had at a...

This review is long over due. I went to Posada J last year in February during carnival season. It was a busy time in Ecuador but we got very lucky and were able to find rooms. The manager there Juan Carlos was very accommodating to our large group. My husband, 5 year old daughter and I took the suite that...

Very cosy and calm rooms by the waterfall. Welcoming team that is ready to assist at any time. Clean room with a small terrace. Delicious breakfast with fresh milk, eggs and seasonal fruits. Spa and massage available. Recommended for romantic getaways.

I was originally place in a room that was separate from the main hotel. I think there are three rooms (with double beds) in a row that were additions. My room had mold and a friend's room had water leaking problems. I think these rooms are #23-24? I asked to move to another room, and the staff was happy to...

My wife and I loved posada J. Breakfast was great. The hammocks were perfect since you could watch and hear the waterfall. The couples massage was beyond affordable and incredibly relaxing. The staff were all excellent especially the owners who are genuinely good people, patient, and hard working. If we comeback to banos we will be staying here. I suggest...
