Hostel Transilvania - Hotel Baños - Ecuador

At first, one wonders whether it's a good idea to opt for a hostel called Transilvania in the middle of Ecuador. But don't be mistaken by the name (which actually means "forest") because this hostel has a great reputation in Baños. In the morning, pull up a log seat and sit down at one of the five petrified wood tables where you will be served copious amounts of fruit with your choice of pancakes or granola. Owners, Itai and Janeth are very warm, as is the entire staff, many of whom speak not only English but also Hebrew. Rooms are bright and clean and have private bathrooms, but are a little cramped. However, leather "count" chairs line the halls and are perfect for out-of-room lounging.
