The owners were very enthused to see us and were helpful with questions in English. The rooms are very clean and the bed was great. The location is very good for coffee shops and restaurants and only a few blocks to the main plaza. You have keys to all doors so very safe. We will be returning for our 3rd... More

- great location. In the middle of the old town. 5 minutes to the river walk. - double room with shared balcony with a very compact bathroom (maybe very tight for some people, luckily I'm small) - kitchen could only be used at certain times. When we were there, It was always busy with the owners so felt uncomfortable using... More

We spent 4 nights at Hostal Hogar Cuencano, and it was a very good choice for us. The family all speak English and were very kind, helpful, and welcoming. The charming decor and wonderful little kitchen give you a feeling of being at home. The location couldn't be better; just a few steps away from the river walk and Calle... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 might stay here! The hostess is terrific and a pleasure to visit with. Quiet place too! Less street noise in the back building if you like it that way. We will stay here again for sure! Very comfortable bed, nice covered roof top patios, good kitchen. It's like they just invited you into their home.

My friend and I stayed here for two nights in November 2015, and found the place the be basic/simple, but very clean, very friendly owner (efficient service), great location. The price was also perfect for our budget. All in all excellent value for money and we can recommend this hostel!

The hostel is nice and clean, the owners were very nice to us and were very helpful in giving us information regarding the day trip we were planning. In the middle of the night, my leg and lower back were itchy. I was bitten by a nocturnal insect. I had checked the bed for bugs before lying in it, and... More

The hostal is very good located, close to all the sights and restaurants. It is not a luxury hotel but you have everything you need and everything is really clean. We felt really comfortable there and would definitely recommend it. In the morning it was sometimes a little bit noisy - but I guess this is normal in Ecuador since... More

I go for a few days visits to Cuenca and this hostal meets my needs. It is very close to Parque Calderon and many restaurants. I can walk to most business places I usually need to visit. I love the owners Celso and Maggie who are always very hospitable and ready to help. The rooms are clean and the Wi-Fi... More

I had a good stay here in a private room with a private bathroom. Things were a little tight in the bathroom; had to squeeze by the tight space between the toilet and the shower, but it was kept very clean and there was always hot water and a strong shower. On the days I slept in no one bothered... More
