Only a few blocks from Centro this hostal provides a welcoming vibe, with a great restaurant that provides excellent breakfasts and other meals. Very clean, efficient and well run. Highly recommended.

Great location, minutes away from centro Historico. The best breakfast we have had in a hostel. The food is excellent. Good vibe in the evening. Happy Hour between 4 and 8pm. Very clean and well managed. Staff are efficient and very helpful. Our recommendation for Cuenca.

The cafe has a nice feel. Good food at good prices and nice but not intrusive loud music. The cage was bustling even in a Monday and it's clear why. Beds are comfy. Water is hot and cocktails are $2 during happy hour. Ask for rooms away from the cafe if you're a light sleeper. Was no problem for us... More

The dorm rooms are great, spacy with nice bathrooms with inconsistent hot water depending on the use by all of the guests. The breakfest wich is included is great and has taste for everybody. Beware that the restaurent is a popular spot and closes at 11 so noise will not stop until then. For party folks, it is great but... More

Nice place, nice atmosphere, nice location, nice and simple room with big bath. We could hear the music from a distance until 22.00. Good breakfast, could be given a bit earlier especially if you want to take the early bus to go hiking in the national park las cajas.

I loved this hostel in Cuenca mostly for its cool terrace, great and friendly staff, restaurant and bar and live music (can't remember which days of the week exactly that is). I definitely recommend it

Great spot in the city. I gave it a four star because for the price including breakfast you can't beat it. It's close to everything, very clean, very comfortable. It has a large bathroom. Hot water was ok. The restaurant downstairs makes it very convenient. If you don't like noise, stay near the back, bring earplugs. Iv'e already booked for... More

I stayed here two nights in a private room, private bath on the main floor. This place is better as a hostel as the ambience and clientele are more hostel-oriented. However, for $20 my room was clean, although it smelled musty with an overlay of a gross, strongly scented toilet deodorizer. The room did not have any outside windows, only... More

We stayed in a 3 bed room (one in a loft accessible by ladder, which was fine for our son), and it was cleaned daily and beds made. Bar was active at night but not loud enough to interfere with sleep. Breakfast included each am had hot coffee/tea/milk, juice of the day (which was always fresh prepared) and choice of... More

We stayed there for 3 nights. The staff was always very nice to us, but they were only focused on attending the restaurant. It was more like renting a small apartment than a hostel. Also, since it's a restaurant/bar, there is music, and noise. So be prepared for that to. If you get one of the rooms in the back... More
