Nice hostal in a old colonial villa. Clean and tidy room though the bed sagged a bit. Nice common areas around a garden courtyard and good communal dining area. Good location close to main attractions and scores of local cafes and bars in the area.

We had a good experience in this hostel, that was a lot cheaper than the other ones we found in the neighborhood (half the price for a double). It's very well located, the rooms are clean and comfy, we had towels and soap included in the price. There is a big kitchen and courtyard that ate free of use, and...

We stayed here for 4 nights and found it to be exactly what it was advertised as. The owners welcomed us in at 1am, showed us to a clean, comfortable basic private room for $10 per person per night. We booked online through a booking website, paid a $3.00 deposit which was honoured. We had a shared bathroom that were...

One of the most beautiful and friendly hotels/hostels i have ever had the pleasure to stay in. I saw no sign of the troubles that some others have reported on here. The staff were bright and bubbly and enthusiastic about helping us, the rooms were lovely, and the atrium courtyard was unexpected and beautiful. I think we paid $12 ea...

I find some of the commentaries of other guests quite unfair because we had a good time here . It's very cheap for what it proposes. It's quiet hotel in the animated center of Cuenca with a green courtyard full of plants and trees who looks a bit like Frida Kahlo's house.its very clean also and we can use the...

We would advise you to think twice before setting foot in this hostel. We have been travelling for 2 years non-stop and worked in the industry for 25 and have never seen so dishonest and rude people. One of the most important things we learn in the service industry is that the first image is the important one to showcase...

When we arrived at 3 pm, they didn't know exactly what to do with us, although we had a reservation. They said there was a party and they are not ready with the rooms. Okay... that can happen we thought, easy we wait. They cleaned the room where we moved in, but they said we will have to change the...

This hostel has a nice charm with its courtyard area. The staff were discrete but efficient and very friendly when I needed to interact with them. There is a small kitchen and TV area, which I didn't use. Wifi was good in my room upstairs and I had hot water in the shower (more in the morning than evening). Apart...

“Best to see in person and compare with other hostels and hotels. Be prepared to bargain, don't pay anything close to the first price asked. If you reserve, do it for only about three days, so you'll have a good excuse to move.”
