I would recommend this hostel to those passing through cuenca or staying for a while. We arrived early at 5am and much to our delight the bed was available and the staff let us in to take a nap. The whole time the stuff were more than happy to assist us in any way possible. Despite us speaking very broken... More

Just spent one night, but it was lovely. The hosts were helpful and friendly. Beautiful garden in the courtyard - really a little paradise in the busy city block. Clean and well-kept. Great food in the area too!

Don Luis and Delores where the most lovely hosts! They were just so sweet and made us feel right at home. We arrived at 6am after a long bus journey and he took us straight to the room and told us to rest! We also stayed late on our final day, waiting for a bus out of Cuenca. I was... More

We stayed here for five days between Xmas and New Year. Great location, within two blocks of the river and very close to the cathedrals. Room was small, but with ample storage space to put away suitcases and hang clothes. Bathroom also very small, but ample hot water at all times. Room had been completely redone so everything was spotless.... More

We stayed about 4 nights in a room at Villa deal Rosario and rather liked it. It isn't flashy and has almost a bit of a damp feel to the rooms but they're are at a great price and we had access to the kitchen, which made our Cuenca stay much cheaper. It is in a great location, very near... More

The hostel is close to the center and offers rooms with private bathrooms. In the common kitchen you can prepare breakfast. The living room invites to rest or watch TV. The patio is nice as well. The spanish-speaking staff was really adorable and helpful, I would fully recommend it!

We stayed for 2 nights. I was amazed on how quiet and lovely our stay was. The owners were always around and asked if we needed anything. They also had an in house doctor. I felt like i was staying at a family member's house. Very relaxed And well taken care of. Definitely coming back!

Simple, inexpensive hostal with all the exquisite charm of an old Cuenca colonial villa. The rooms are rustic but clean. Don Luis was particularly helpful. Note the small painting of the entrance hall.
