We throughly enjoyed our long stay and I can’t think of one item I wouldn’t put in the Excellent category. The Proprietors, Celso and his wife Maggie, are as hospitable is it gets. As mentioned in other reviews, they speak terrific English, which I am sure came from their time spent in the U.S. The staff couldn’t be friendlier, are... More

The owner and his wife were very welcoming and concerned about the the wellbeing of their customers. I was especially impressed how they took care of an aged American who seemed to be quite lost. The room was adequate for the price I paid and I spent some restful days at the hostel. The owner gave good advise on a... More

Nice, economical place to stay. No common meeting area, but met some people regardless. Internet didn't work so well in the rooms. Seriously, 200 characters in a review is a bit long, don't you think?

After more than 2 years on the road, we have just met some of the nicest hostel operators around. After we mistakenly left a phone in the Galapagos, the owners went out of their way to help us recover it. They made numerous phone calls on our behalf and they even drove out to the airport to collect it when... More

Having stayed at the Hotel Europa in Alausi, this hostel was such a welcome change! I arrived before my room was ready but was offered coffee and made to feel as if I was important. I had a lovely room with an internal balcony. It was clean and my bed was made each day. The location was very good as... More

I tried writing this on my iPhone while staying at Hogar Hostel a couple days ago but it didn't work. The owners are great friendly people. There is a terrace on the top with city and mountain views. This hostel is steps away from the popular Calle Larga, a street lined with cafes, shops, and bars. And steps away from... More

We arrived in Cuenca at the bus station without a booking and actually picked a different hostel from our travel guide next to this one and it was full, so we wandered into Hogar Cuencana. We were really really happy with the place! The private room was spacious with its own little internal patio, the private bathroom was spotless and... More
