We would advise you to think twice before setting foot in this hostel. We have been travelling for 2 years non-stop and worked in the industry for 25 and have never seen so dishonest and rude people. One of the most important things we learn in the service industry is that the first image is the important one to showcase... More

When we arrived at 3 pm, they didn't know exactly what to do with us, although we had a reservation. They said there was a party and they are not ready with the rooms. Okay... that can happen we thought, easy we wait. They cleaned the room where we moved in, but they said we will have to change the... More

We stayed here for a night and had no problems with it at all. The staff were very accommodating and enjoy the guests company. Laundry service was good, great kitchen, huge TV area, great courtyard, clean bathrooms, hot water, rooms came with towels and soap, comfy beds, secure rooms, wifi was good, and most of all close to the main...

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
