The rooms come off the cafe so a) it's very loud until midnight ish b) you have to walk through a busy cafe/bar to get to the shower which I hate! c) no breakfast included Good location. Good beds and small dorms. Not much else to recommend it.

Location is great, from here you can walk everywhere. The private double room we had was decent and clean, and the shared bathrooms were clean too, and had hot showers. The little cafe inside is really nice, but because of construction work a bit too loud to hang out when we were there. The wifi didn't work in our room,... More

This is my first review on Tripadvisor. Last year I was travelling for 9 months in South America, this year for 5 months so far, and have been in 55 different cities in Argentina, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador & Colombia. As the title says, this place is a bar, with 3 shared bedrooms located around the area of tables. Apparently, the... More

My girlfriend and I just spend three nights here during our trip through Ecuador. With prices ranging from 25$ per double room with private shower and down, this is a quite recommendable hostal, since you have an amazing location added to the price. It is located just two-three blocks away from the new cathedral and within walking distance of everything.... More

we spend 3 nights in this hostal. There is a nice staff and bar with a lot of people, the wrong side is the noise during the evening (until 11pm or 12pm the week end). The rooms are very clean and there is hot shower but the bedding is old and unconfortable.

Very cosy and nice! The atmosphere is nice and the staff is kind. The restaurant has good food - and amazing cakes! Only one littl thing: we didn't have wifi in our oom and there are only 2 toilets/showers for quite a few people! But still, very affordable and... cosy!

I found El cafecito really nice and I had a nice bedroom. The room was quite cold thougth and, during the nigh time, really noisy till very late. Breakfast is not included and the bar is quite expensive. And no wifi in the room.

Good hostal, clean rooms of good size. Nice indoor courtyard where they serve food. Friendly helpful straff (english/spanish speaking). There is a lot of construction work being done outside the private rooms with is kind of a downer. Also the WiFi doesn't work in the rooms (and was also completely down for 3 days). But all in all its good... More

Once, while traveling in Israel a friend of mine recommended me this hostel, finally I had the chance to go, I stayed 4 days at Cafecito and it was cool. The food is super delicious, they have good coffee and good brownies. The rooms are clean, comfortables beds and nice service. Definitely recommended !!

El Cafecito is a really nice hostal, with a great staff, always smiling. The rooms are clean and the price is good. The only two negative things were the wifi (not working) and the works just next to the room (very noisy). The restaurant is amazing, and the breakfast also (but not included in the night price, what a pity).... More
