Staff and guest very friendly. Good location and the food was really tasty. The only thing is that you have to wait until restaurant closed to go to bed because is noisy but you can always enjoy a beer meeting people

This is a hostel with clean and nice rooms, comfortable beds, tasty food in the restaurant and friendly staff! And the breakfast is included to the price. It has a good location, close to restaurants, markets and museums. Stay here if you ever go to Cuenca.

We picked this hostel based on the glowing reviews. Maybe it worked for most people, definitely not for us. The location was good, walking distance to the center of town. We were offered a room at the rear of the building, away from the nice-looking restaurant and the noise which starts building up late in the night. Unfortunately, the room...

I was pleasantly surprised with all aspect of the hostal, we had a private room bright and clean, the included breakfast is sufficient, it is near the downtown and relatively close to the public market if one wishes, i would return there if I go back to Cuenca

On the plus side this place is clean, comfortable beds and by far the best breakfast I've had served with good coffee. The location is excellent and the staff are friendly and helpful. On the negative side it's noisy till the bar closes in the evening and there's no sneaking around upstairs because the wooden floors squeak loudly.

This hostel is a popular place to get drinks in Cuenca. Also for locals. The restaurant has good meals and breakfast is included. The rooms are nice and clean. But watch out if you are an early sleap, because the noise of the bar is present till 11/12 o clock.

Nice, clean rooms with comfortable beds in a really good location just a few blocks from the main square. The downstairs area is a bar/restaurant which is also open to the public. The music does stop at 11 or 12 so it doesnt keep you up all night. The food downstairs was really good; especially the quinoa burger!! Free breakfast...

When we first arrived we were a bit put off by this place. Put in a room with people who were working in the hostel made it difficult to find space to put anything - however this is one of the cheaper options, other rooms look nice. Beds were comfy but my 2 friends and I all had top bunks...

We were supposed to spend 2 nights there but changed after the first night. The good point is that it's not an expensive place ($27/night). And the dinner we had was tasty (chicken with lemon sauce and spaghettis with "pesto sauce" style). But the room was ugly, very noisy and stinky. You have to ask for the towels and make...

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
