This hostel has a nice charm with its courtyard area. The staff were discrete but efficient and very friendly when I needed to interact with them. There is a small kitchen and TV area, which I didn't use. Wifi was good in my room upstairs and I had hot water in the shower (more in the morning than evening). Apart... More

I wrote one of the first glowing reviews of this hostel when it first opened. On the positive side, it is actually cleaner now (the floors I forgot to mention in 2011 were dirty) and the hot water is now very stable and plentiful (though there is hot water for the showers only, not the sinks). It is pretty as... More

First of all, if you have never been to Cuenca you would not understand the total meaning of my title. Quiet is relative, of course, but almost impossible in Cuenca because of the constant traffic and street noise and nature of Ecuadorians. Even though the courtyard is open to the outside the noise here is greatly diminished and the owners... More

We stayed at the Hostal Villa Del Rosario for two weeks while taking Spanish classes in Cuenca. The rooms are set around a tranquil central courtyard and there's also a large dining area adjacent to the kitchen. Noise was never a problem here, the bed was comfortable and the water hot. Location is great too and everything is within walking... More

I have stayed here several times. This is a traditional house with all rooms surrounding a lush courtyard. The rooms vary in size with the single rooms quite small. With little/no insulation, the rooms get cold and damp especially at night. While this hostal is supposed to be non-smoking, the area near the courtyard/entrance seems to attract quite a few... More

We were happily surprised by Hostal Vlla Del Rosario. Maria welcomed us open heartily in the inside courtyard of the small hostal, and although the hostal was basic, it is all we needed - nice bedrooms including towel, clean shared bathroom, beautiful garden, free water & tea, and use of kitchen. Unlike the google maps may say the hostal is... More

We stayed 5 days in this hostal and had a really good experience. It definitively got its own "charm". Situated in the center of the city but still calm, relaxing and really safe. The owner are really nice and eager to help you if you need it. For such a price, it's definitively a bargain and the place where we'll... More

There are so many hostels in Cuenca. How do you choose? If you are looking for an Ecuadorian owned, funky, and unique hostel then this might be the place for you. As past reviews said, the showers are temperamental, but manageable. You are given a towel to use, which is luxury after using a pac-towel for months. There is a... More

This is a wonderfully quiet place in the centre of town, with internet, kitchen and lounge. Everything was clean and the staff were extremely friendly. On both nights they went out of their way to make me feel at home and wished me a comfortable stay, even giving me my own key so that I could come and go as... More

I stayed in the hostel for nearly one month. The hostel is very tranquil and has a lovely garden inside. It's in a very comfortable place in the town center, close distance to anything you need. The price is fine for what you get. There is good wifi and hot water all the time. I recommend on this place.
