I lived for around 5 months in Ecuador, close to Cuenca. I must have spend some 20 nights in this cosy hostel over this period. It's just one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in, no question.
The staff is really friendly and hospitable and the vide is very relaxed, but never the less professional. The private rooms are clean comfortable and quite beautiful.The dorm is somewhat less value for money, but hey, just stay in one of the private rooms instead.
In the evening the cheap happy hour deals make sure that things get lively. However, you don't notice anything of the party-noise when your at your room.
I came to get to know most of the popular Cuencan Hostels and I can soundly state that this one is the very best.

- Private and shared rooms that includes a good breakfast, private bathroom with constant hot water, good mattresses... It also includes wireless internet which stretches from our café, in which you can buy delicious and cheap food, from hummus and pita to savoury crepes to steak to nachos with guacamole. It turns into a bar at night, complete with happy hour, good music and a great atmosphere. This might have been a problem for sleeping, but no – the music gets shut off and everyone gets kicked out at somewhere at midnight. ... more less
