We were shown two options in two of their three hostel buildings. We selected a quiet inside room ($13.44/person) on the second floor. Very comfy beds. We cooked in the kitchen and ate on the third floor terrace. Evenings were spent drinking wine and listening to music on the little terrace- very relaxing place to stay. There was some mold... More

Great place to advice. Nice location and very good breakfast. The staff, Martita, Miguel and his sister are very welcoming and helpful. Place is clean and the room as spacious. Make sure to have a room in the back and not facing the street.

Great hostel location within walking distance from all attractions, nice cafes and bars and the market. Martha, Alexia and Andreas were so welcoming and clearly take pride in maintaining their wonderful hostel. We got the three bed attic room which was spacious and bright and, like the rest of the hostel, clean as a whistle. Small number of bathrooms and... More

They gave us no soap. The next morning, as we were leaving, I mentioned this in a very cordial manner, not complaining, just giving feedback. The daughter replied, in a very snooty manner, that this was our fault, because we should have run the doorbell next door and asked for soap if we wanted it. I said I thought that... More

We stayed here for two nights and the girl who welcomed us was really nice and helpful. The room she put us in was extremely small and there were no windows! The walls were super thin and we didnt get to much sleep during our stay... In the ceiling was a glass stone, which lighted up the room everytime the... More

We moved here as we had a horrible experience in a hostel. This place was amazing. The beds were so comfortable, the room had everything you need; table, chairs, hangers and wardrobe. The bathroom was new, the shower is the best we've had in South America, good power and constant hot water. The breakfast was prepared as soon as you... More

We moved here after a bad experience in a nearby backpacker hostal and was so glad we switched. We had a lovely double room with excellent furniture and comfy bed. They'd thought of everything with a small desk and a comfy chair to relax in - and hooks for clothes on the wall which we love. The bathroom was excellent... More

If all that matters to you is having a bed to sleep in at night, then this place would be good, but in my opinion it is really not worth the money. First of all, when we made a reservation for a room with 2 beds and a private bathroom, we had to jump through about 50 hoops to get... More

I stayed at la casa la cuencana for 3 nights and the place definitely felt like my home away from home. I was fortunate enough to be granted a free upgrade and I absolutely loved the room that was allocated to me. It was private, quiet, cosy and tastefully decorated. I also appreciated the recommendations that I received with regards... More
