I don't leave reviews very often but felt that this hostel deserved some recognition. Easily one of the nicest places we stayed in South America. Great location, good communal kitchen, helpful staff, decent showers, clean rooms, nice common area, great wifi... The list goes on! Would highly recommend to all!

My boyfriend and I stayed for about a week in this quiet hostel on the corner of a very nice/central area of Cuenca. The hostel is very clean, with a comfy common area and nice sized kitchen you can cook in. The showers are all right, pretty temperamental and only two available from what I could tell for people staying... More

We spend our night in Cuenca in the Posada Del Rio, which turned out to be a real nice hostal situated in the center of the city near to one of the rivers. Our room was neat with shared bathrooms, which had unfortunatly no warm water. There was a well-equipped kitchen which you can use and some nice livingroom. Could... More

Good location, the room and the shared bathroom were very clean.The wooden stairs can be noisy, but it does not really matter. The staff could have been more helpful and welcoming... I still would recommand this place.

We stayed at this hostel for a couple of nights. The hostess was genuinely kind to my 4 year old son. They have a wide selection of movies and many TV channels in the living room. Showers have individual heating elements, which provide generally steady warmth although low capacity might not give the hottest shower. These individual heating elements are... More

We stayed here for almost a week over Cuenca's founding weekend celebrations and really enjoyed ourselves. The whole house was clean and the water almost got hot. The room had a weird wardrobe where part of it opened into our room and part in the one next door. This meant that if our neighbours were noisy we could hear everything.... More

Don't forget to take earplugs... it is a good place to stay just with the inconvenience of the old wooden stairs. Besides this it is worthy to stay for a Cuenca visit. Great living room and kitchen, near the market and city center.

This place has all the things I usually look for in a hostel in a sweet package. *except hot water. A sweet wooden staircase, a really nice common area, strong wifi, warm blankets, clean kitchen. I honestly have no idea how they keep it so clean when there is literally no one there most of the day. When I tried... More

We payed 9$ per person. The place is basic but neat and clean. Wifi connexion and a nice kitchen. It can be quite noisy if your room is next to the kitchen / TV, and the kranking floors won't help if you come back late or leave early.

The Good: Convenient, safe location. Free Internet. Nice common area and kitchen. The Bad: The floors are creaky and the building's layout means you can often hear your neighbors or people in the hall...bring ear plugs. The computer is also slow. The Ugly: This is the one reason I wouldn't recommend this place: a price switch.When we moved into the... More
