We came here from a recommendation in our travel guide. They didn't have enough space in the dorms, so we chose the private room. Very spacious, comfy bed, hot shower, really cosy. We were happy we went in the private room, as we noticed that the dorms were on the vicinity of the common area which would have been a... More

We were told that there was a party that may last until 2am and we appreciated them letting us know. However what they actually meant was that there was a party until 6am and the volume in the bedroom was genuinely louder than most normal clubs. Didnt sleep until 6am and then were hurried out for check out in the... More

We arrived in the evening in Cuenca and we could immediately stay at El Cafecito! The guy was very friendly and explained us the different options. We chose a room with 2 other people. It was big, a shower, a toilet, everything just fine, also enough blankets for the night. The only problem is the noise. Noise from the cafe... More

We stayed for 9 days while we sought out an apartment for permanent accommodations... We couldn't believe how warm friendly and accommodating the staff was to us... Our daughter loved living it the hostel and enjoyed ALL the staff!! We were sad to leave but have already stopped by to see the wonderful, smiling manager Sergio... Literally the service is... More

Emailed them and they responded that yes we have a dorm bed ready for you when you arrive. I arrive and they don't know who I am. This is within 24 hours for email back and forth to them. They did have a dorm bed available. So I moved my stuff in and OMG! What a dirty place! What a... More

Really enjoyed my time at El Cafecito. The staff were knowledgeable and helpful, the rooms and showers are clean, the center café area is the perfect place to sit and have a drink and or a snack, and there is a lovely garden area in the back with hammocks and tables-a good place to enjoy tea or read a book....

If you have any problem, they won't help you!! I was part of this 24 people group who got stranded because they had "lost" our reservation... Fair enough "bad luck" happens, but you can't be arrogant in this case... Gotta at least offer some drinks for the time needed to find an other accommodation!! They have just ignored us and... More
