We stay here in october 2014. We have pay 40 $ for one double with private room. This is clean but there was very musty smell. The sleep was impossible, because all the night the guests ring the bell to enter (they don't have a key and the reception is close in the night). In the morning the allarm is... More

This used to be the Hostal Paredes in the 2006 Lonely Planet guidebook but has changed owners, as I found out using the old guidebook. The rooms are located in a colonial mansion a couple of streets to Cuenca town centre. From the outside, it has an inviting lobby and on the inside the rooms are clean, the beds have... More

The venue is quite weird (seems like a ghosted building) but I liked the atmosphere. You definitely get a different experience compared to the regular backpacker hostels. It is located 2 blocks away from the cathedral, and there... More

I stayed there for 6 weeks. 1 week in a $10/night room and 5 weeks in the best $21/night room after American Airlines found my baggage. The $10 room had no window and was very basic. The $21 room had a window overlooking a main street downtown, a refrigerator and a large glass enclosed shower. The people were very friendly... More
