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

Our twin room was comfortable with a bathroom that had a powerful and hot shower and a small shared balcony. They were very helpful at reception, especially when I needed to get my laundry back (I wouldn't recommend the laundry opposite they seem to have very erratic opening hours). It was in a good location near the river, bars and... More

The staff here was great and the place was very nice with lots of quirky character. I really liked staying here and would do so again. The decor is unusual and charming. Totally recommend this place...

Well located, moments from the river and minutes from the centre of the old town of Cuenca. Plenty of bars, restaurants & cafés close by. The owners here are friendly, speak English and can help with day trips. The rooms are bright and clean and our bed was very comfortable. Our room, at the back of the hostel was very... More

This was a good find for us. The bed/room was very comfortable and plenty of shelving to put your things. The shower was good and there was a little terrace attached to the room which was cute. The upstairs terrace was also nice with hammocks and tables and chairs and there are actually plugs up there so if you need... More
