Perfect Hostel, only a bit outside of town, you need to walk about 10 min to the Central Centre. But Bars, Restaurants and Clubs are nearby. Breakfest is nothing special, but worth the 1,50$ that are already included in the price. Will go there again.

Nice hostel. Can be noisey as it is on the corner of main roads. Nice hot showers. Breakfast was nothing special

The owners are so friendly and the location couldn't be more convenient. Rooms are a little loud, but that is our only (small) complaint.

Really nice staff and very clean hostel. The front door is secure and it's a nice walk down the museum stretch to the city centre.

Unfair review as I stayed for less than 24hrs. It was extremely quiet (hence lacking somewhat in atmosphere) but staff were very friendly/helpful and it was very clean. The kitchen area was nice and very well organised. It was a little away from the centre but other than that a pleasant stay!

Great fully equipped kitchen with dining table, comfortable tv room, reaaalllyyyy good hot showers. Not very social as the common rooms were very disjointed. Lockers provided at the reception. Maps and directions to the main square and supermarket were provided. Good wifi. Definitely not a good hostel if looking to party or socialise. Better for groups or couples than solo travellers. But overall a nice and clean hostel, and I enjoyed my stay!

Disappointing. When I was there, there were only 4 other guests - all couples. There are no activities, so this is really just a (clean) place to crash - but don't expect to meet anyone or organize any activities. There are much better hostels in the Center. Breakfast is also worse than other places in Cuenca.

If you are coming to Cuenca look no further, Alternative hostel is all you will need. Beautiful hostel with the most amazing owner who are so incredibly helpful. The hostel itself is gorgeous. Breakfast included. The dorms were great and really good bathrooms with hot water. The terrace is wicked and a great place to meet people and chill. Would 100% recommend staying here!

Great hostel for a few nights in Cuenca. Not in the main area, so that's the biggest knock. Staff is nice. All areas are clean. Hostel is generally quiet too. Good place to catch your breath on your travels.

The space is really nice and clean, with a lot of natural light filtering in. The kitchen is well-stocked and clean and there is free coffee and tea all day. The breakfast that is included is a bit sparse, just toast and jam and a banana. During my stay the other guests were not very social and the overall atmosphere was quiet.
