We stayed for 3 nights in a room out the back facing the garden. A simple but clean and comfortable room with enough space. The rooms in the main house might be noisier with people coming and going but they are more stylish rooms. The staff were very helpful, good security, and a solid morning breakfast. We really loved Cuenca... More

This hotel has a colonial style building in the front, with a small yard surrounded by rooms on the back. We took a room in the back, those in the front tend to be noisier with the bell of the door rining and people staying in the back passing through. Our room was clean, but a little worn. There was...

We quite enjoyed room 12 of this hostal which was actually a suite with bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom. The setting is lovely and we had a private stair and walkway. State of the art TV was only used for a short-time but still appreciated. Excellent wifi. The breakfast in the morning, included in our room rate was delicious.... More

We stayed at the Hostal Macondo and were so pleased! This lovely decorated hostal also provided a wonderful breakfast where one could meet fellow travelers. Jenny who worked the reception desk could not have been nicer and attended to our every need. I would highly recommend the Hostal Macondo for short or long term stays. I look forward to returning!

I liked the location of this hostal for exploring El Centro. The common areas are visually appealing. There is an inside courtyard in the front surrounded by art. There is an outside courtyard in back near the kitchen that has a gazebo with plants. The ladies at the front desk were friendly and speak both English and Spanish. I asked... More

Hostal Macondo doesn't look all that impressive from the busy street and is priced at mid-range, but inside it's very comfortable, clean and well-run. The rooms at the front of the building that open into the inside courtyard look a little dark and dingy and the internet's not good, but the ones around the garden at the back are fine,... More

Wife and I stayed here back in 2012 (the site doesn't provide reviews going back that far in the date block). We felt comfortable with the security and enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere of the back area and the inner courtyard. The rooms are much like any place in Ecuador, sound does carry, however, it wasn't that distracting or bothersome. Worth... More

The hotel is comfortable, beautiful, ideally located, the rooms are large and comfortable and look over a nice garden with a hammock. The complimentary breakfast is quite good too. The thing is we had problems with the hot water every morning, even though the staff were very helpful and always made sure that the problem be addressed. But asking every... More

Hostal Macondo was a very nice surprise! When you walk through the front door it's like entering another community . So different from the traffic and noise outside. We stayed in #7 suite in order to have a quiet area. Unfortunately another resident's or staff member's little dog barked a lot and was annoying. But that does seem to be... More
