I had a good stay here in a private room with a private bathroom. Things were a little tight in the bathroom; had to squeeze by the tight space between the toilet and the shower, but it was kept very clean and there was always hot water and a strong shower. On the days I slept in no one bothered... More

This hostel is wonderfully located. It's within a short walking distance to everything! We loved eating breakfast in their cafe that is attached to the hostel. Very yummy food and very affordable. We appreciated the artistic charm that this hostel had and also the wonderful roof top terrace. Our biggest issue with this hostel was the noise. The noise mostly... More

I stayed here for the month of March. The room was quiet, comfortable, and the family who owns the place is helpful and friendly. They live there, speak good English and are always ready with advice and help if you need it. It's centrally located and you can easily walk all over town from the hotel in 10-15 minutes. Good...

Nice, clean, quiet hostel. A few minutes to city center, restaurants and big supermarket. On weekends quite loud due to parties around the hostel. No lockers but seemed no problem, no common room and unfortunately kitchen has only little equipment. Staff helps with everything.

-I stayed there for 5 days. Location is easy to navigate since it's along the main street and river; but on the other hand, it's of course noisy during the night. -The staff is nice but they charged me 10/night and another traveler 8/night. Not sure why... -The kitchen and facilities are basic but very clean. Would recommend it but... More

Just a half block from the lovely Rio Tomebamba and the one of the best archaeological museums in Ecuador, this safe and convenient hostal has private rooms with bath so affordable I won't mention the price. See rooms first and offer to pay in cash. Very quiet, being so close to everything, with fabulous views of Cuenca from the rooftop... More

I stayed at Hogar Cuencano last weekend and had a very enjoyable stay for the most part. I was in Cuenca visiting a friend and decided to try a hostel to stay in the center of the city.

The nicest thing about this place were the staff/owners who were very welcoming and very informative about the area. We had a private room which was fine, although you could hear EVERYTHING in the surrounding rooms. Didn't bother me as I use ear plugs to sleep anyway, but my partner was VERY aware of other people around us. I shall... More

This is a cozy, friendly well located hostal. The owner, a very gregarious man by the name of Celso, speaks excellent English having loved living in Minnesota. But then he seems to love wherever he is and what he does. Once, before I learned his name, I caught him dancing to a song on the radio while folding bed sheets.... More

We had a private room for 4 nights. We liked the room with its huge and comfortable bed a lot. Bathroom and shower (hot!) is good as well. You can also use the kitchen and in-house loundry service. Owner and staff are very friendly and helped a lot with DIY daytrips (eg. to Cajas). For breakfast we went to Nocallacta... More
