After reading recommendations online, we opted for this hostel as everywhere else was fully booked. We were 'greeted' by the land lady who was very unpleasant and quite abrupt. Once we were shown to our rooms, we discovered that the bathroom had not been cleaned in what seemed like weeks due to the stale smell of urine and dirt on... More

The most striking thing in this hotel is the hospitality and the welcome of the owner who act like a mum with all the guests. We stayed for 2 nights separated by 2 days to visit Laguna de quilotoa and Cotopaxi. She letted us use her kitchen and kept our bag. The room we had for 3 was very nice.... More

We had 1 night in this hotel. It was really nice. The woman did her best to speak some english words and wanted to learn us soms Spanish words. She's lovely. The breakfast was also really good. If we would come back, we would go there again.

Well, nothing to say about the very welcoming non-english speaking owner lady there who offered us tea, cooked us good 2.5$ simple breakfast, helped us call Cuenca airport in her home kitchen and spent at least 2 hours going up and down the 3 floors hotel trying to find out why the hell there was no water !

A great base for visiting Quilotoa, Cotopaxi, and weekly local markets in nearby cities. The hostel is about a 15 minute walk from the bus terminal. The rooms of the hostel were large and everything has an aged look, but quite clean! The surroundings were fairly quiet during our stay. Even though we didn't speak any Spanish, Viola (the owner)...

This hostel is surprisingly huge. The rooms are really spacious and relatively clean. We paid 10 bucks a night per person for a triple with private bathroom. I kind of wished we stayed at hostel tiana because breakfast isn't included here. The staff is really friendly and helpful. Overall it was a good place to stay and was relatively cheap.

We were directed to Hotel Central from another hostel that had mixed up our reservation. We got a double private room with ensuite bathroom for 18$/night. The room itself was simple and can be loud facing the busy street, but the service we received was excellent. My daughter was sick with a cold. They provided hot water for tea and... More
