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

This place is located right above a very popular restaurant / bar, and therefore always noisy. On the bright side, you can always go down for a good wine, which is rare in these parts of South America. The cheapest dorm is small and just opening the door wakes everyone up. Only 1 shower! Internet works in the corridor, not... More

I stayed in the 6 bed dorm for two nights. Considering the cleanliness of the bed, location, and the price (7 usd/night), it was a good choice in town. Many people complained about the noise in the hostal. This can be a problem if you stay in those rooms right above its restaurant. But the 6 bed dorm happen to... More

Other than concerns about noise at night, we absolutely loved this hostal! The red room, which had 5 beds, was wonderfully huge, nice size bathroom, and great shower. Breakfast was sufficient for the needs. Loved the layout of the place, and its unique feel. Beds were made daily, and was always spotless. Had dinner as well there, it was great.... More
