One of the best hostel in southamerica on our hole trip. Cheap prices for private rooms, if you compare it to other prices.Super clean, hot water, good wifi, one of the best kitchens ever and really modern and nice accomodation rooms and outdoor terrace. The staff was friendly and answered all your questions,- everybody of them speak good english. A little bit out of the Center, but just 15 minutes to walk.
Very clean, great facilities, in a good walking distance to town with bars and restaurants nearby, but bring earplugs if you want to have a quiet sleep (big intersection and thin house walls). I would definitely stay here again.
I really liked this place. It's clean, in a good location (safe and near some museums, but good ten minute walk to the center of town - no biggie). Cuenca is pretty much all safe south of the airport/bus terminal -- even that is safe during daylight. Kitchen is really nice. Clean, free coffee 24/7. No place to store belongings, but they DO have small lockers to store passport, cash, etc. Some noise from the street below, can see how might bother some. Didn't bother me. Would stay again
Great hostel, clean, comfortable, a 15 minute walk to the centre of town but opposite a great museum. No hot water sometimes.
Really nice place to stay. Very clean!! Unfortunately a little bit noisy.
This was an excellent hostel with extremely friendly staff, it's about a 10 minute walk from the main Cuenca centre so not too far. The kitchen was good quality and allowed us to make most of our meals, as did many other guests. Fully recommended!
I booked a private room and was given a space that was located between a public bathroom, over the kitchen/dining area, the reception desk/ front entrance, and the stairs leading to other rooms. It was bloody LOUD always. In the morning when the cleaning lady arrives she starts talking nonstop to the reception desk clerk. There was a young child, I believe she belonged to the owners, who would stomp up and down the stairs yelling and screaming as she pleased. Drunk people...etc...STAY ELSEWHERE!
Not very social, nit the best hostel for solo travelers.
You get the bang for your buck, extra friendly staff! Definitely recommended!

It would be nice to have hooks to put your clothes When taking the shower.
The staff are great the hostel is clean, the kitchen have everyting you need to make your own food,.free cofee.
Great breakfast and a very good deal as the rooms are cheap. But has a cheap feel as well.... Tired rooms with stuff falling apart. However, if you don't mind that then the basics are all there. Good hot water, very strong wifi etc
Shower is veeery good with warm water, good pressure and very clean. Rooms are comfortable as well. Hostel is a 10 minutes walk from the center which is not far at all. Kitchen is good and clean as well.
gold stuff, very clean but small rooms with small windows. the street in front of the house is pretty loud.
Nice staff, great shower, wifi was ok. Setup of the building meant it could be a bit noisy at night when the tv was on. 20 minutes from the old town but right across the street from the best museum in town.
The set up of this hostel is like that of a California house. We loved this place. Great chill spots on the roof and a nice balcony spot. It's not in the old town part but only a 10 minute walk.

Real hot water showers with amazing water pressure(!!!), it's clean, $5 for laundry, there's a nice kitchen, the wifi is ok, towels, helpful staff and the location is good. Our first three nights were super quiet but on the fourth night, a group of Aussies had a party in the kitchen and kept everyone awake until 3am. Hopefully that's not normal though.
Really friendly staff, comfy beds and great kitchen. Only complaint is that the hot water was a little unreliable during our stay.
I enjoyed very much my stay there. They have the best kitchen among the hostels I stayed at this trip. So, If you want to cook and have a good "home-made" food, that´s the place to stay.
