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

We've stayed in this hostal for two nights in a room with a privat bathroom. The room (and bathroom) were cleaned daily. The hostal has a clean kitchen and the staff is very friendly. Only downside is the limitation in kitchen use after 7 p.m. The only reason we left is because we were looking for a place to stay... More

Stayed here for 5 nights, had a good room on the fourth floor (all those stairs!) with a little balcony and a shared (between three rooms) bathroom. Always spotlessly clean and for the most part very quiet. As other reviews have stated the walls are thin, and slightly strange glass doors, the sound does bounce up from the floors below,... More

We stayed here for a week, and had a wonderful time! The owners are very friendly, welcoming, helpful, and they speak English. No breakfast is provided, but real coffee from the owners farm is available anytime you want it. There are kitchen facilities available, but with all the great restaurant options within easy walking distance of the hostel, we only... More
