Hostel Plantas y Blanco's "World" - Hotel Baños - Ecuador

Hostel Plantas y Blanco "World" is three different hostels in one, all within a few blocks of one another. One part has a terrace, cafetería and a steam bath; the second has Internet/WiFi, a fireplace and a small garden; and the third has WiFi, a communal kitchen, a terrace with a small pool, a fireplace and a Turkish bath. Anyone staying at any of the three parts can use the facilities at all three hostels. In general, it has a relaxed backpacker atmosphere. Its cheap dorm beds are the most reasonably priced in town, but there are simple private rooms as well. Plantas y Blanco is very popular with foreigners; don't expect to meet many locals here.
