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

We spent a weekend in Cuenca and chose to stay at Cafecito based on a recommendation from a friend. Overall we had a great time. We showed up very early on a Saturday morning and, though they lost our reservation somehow, they were very accommodating at put us into a room immediately even though our reservation wasn't until Saturday night....

The hostei is centrally located with all of the main attrictions and sight at a 10 min walk. The place is nice and the patio very nice. The patio is animated during the night. If you want some tranquility, avoid the rooms around the patio, as they are relatively noisy.

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
