We spent 2 nights in this pretty hotel and were treated extremely well. While we were in Cuenca, our credit card got hacked by someone in a restaurant. We had no access to cell phone service while in Ecuador, so the kind people at Calle Angosta let me use their phone for numerous, very prolonged conversations with our credit card... More

Calle Angosta is among the best hostals we stayed during our trip to Ecuador on January 2014. It is about 6 blocks away from the main square but since we had a rented car, having a safe place to park was very important. The façade does not represent the inside. We spent 3 nights in room #2 which was beautifully... More

After reading reviews on TripAdvisor for Calle Angosta, I made the booking prior to an October visit to Cuenca. I was to be staying in Cuenca for two nights, one night on either end of a three-day trek through nearby Cajas National Park. As such, sleep was important given the physical exertion expected at such a high altitude. Previous reviewers... More

Calle Angosta Hotel is a few blocks from the main square and indeed almost everything worth visiting in Cuenca. While Cuenca has its charms, mostly from old residences lining the streets downtown and the river walk at the bottom of the hill, it leaves something to be desired as a top destination in Ecuador. The touted churches are newish or... More

We moved to this hotel after staying a couple of nights in Hostal Macondo, which was fully booked the third night. Both hotels are fully recommendable, though Calle Angosta is a little more expensive (48$ for a double room, private bathroom, breakfast included, against 40$ in Macondo). In exchange for the price difference, rooms in Calle Angosta are bigger, brand... More

With tax, we paid $58 a night which was our priciest stay in the hostal communities of Ecuador. Having said that, the rooms are newly refurbished with very comfortable mattresses, pillows, and I had the first bathtub --can you say great soaks--in Ecuador. We were in room 4 which was spacious and clean, though a through fare to the back... More

The rooms here are great - very clean, comfortable, great bathrooms and decent breakfast. It is the service however that makes this place stand out - the staff are so helpful, friendly and accommodating that they make you feel very well looked after. The location is great too - short walking distance to all the main sights and peaceful and... More

Clean quiet modern rooms ( I stayed in the back section), very friendly helpful staff, good restaurant, good price and good location. My stay here was everything I had hoped it would be. I wouldn't change a thing. Oh, I did have a problem with the hot water but they fixed it right away.

We are retired world travelers on a budget. We rate budget hotels. We expect budget hotels to have some flaws in exchange for low prices Hostel Calle Angosta is a small hotel that was a special place for us to stay. We stayed for two weeks, using Cuenca as a base to explore the region. For us, there were no... More
