It was my second stay here and I really enjoyed it. The hostel has now numerous activities every day and the members of the staff are realy cool and helpfull. The kitchen and all of the bathrooms are pretty clean.
The staff was great...so friendly and helpful! There wasn't much of an atmosphere when I was there, but that was probably just bad timing...everyone had just checked out after a big weekend. No laundry and $1.50 towel rentals were a big hassle!
A nice, modern and clean hostel near the centre of Cuenca. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Really nice hostel in the city center. Slept in the 9 bed dorm which was fine. Big room and no bunk beds. Nice atmosphere and everything looks really modern The staff is great and so helpful. Breakfast is decent and free. You can buy drinks at the hostel. Safety is good but some lockers are broken. But the bathrooms could be cleaner, maybe clean them more than one time a day with so many people using it. And the common area could be more comfortable so it is nicer to hang out there.
Hostel was okay! The pictures online are quite old so don't get disappointed! The bathrooms were dirty at all times, the shower was plugged and there is not enough bathrooms for all the people! The location on the other hand is excellent and the staff super helpful!
Good breakfast and movie facilities. Bathrooms were not clean and had awful water pressure half the time. Rooms got very light in the morning so I woke up at 6.30am every day, and they were very noisy also. Great location and staff were helpful. Although they showed me how to unlock the storage without a key - if they show everyone this then the bags are not safe which defeats the whole point of the storage lockup.
A clean, friendly and comfortable hostel. Road noise wasn't really an issue, ear plugs might help if you are a light sleeper. Staff were very helpful, and free dinner on Sunday nights!
Very clean hostel with helpful staff in a great location. We stayed there during the Copa America and the hostel staff had a little party to watch Ecuador play Chile - it was a fun atmosphere!
This is a superb hostel, one of the best I have seen in many nights of traveling. The place is kept extremely clean, the beds are comfy, and the location right next to the main square is unbeatable. The breakfast in the morning is hearty, although it isnt very early. For only $8 a night, you can't beat it.Recommended!!
Nice hostal next to the main square. Staff is really friendly and helpfull. Atmosphere was not that big during my stay... There wre not that much people.
The hostel has a perfect location, 1 minute to the cathedra/centre of Cuencal! The private bedroom for 2 persons had enough space but no window.. The kitchen was perfect to cook! Even the breakfast with toast/eggs/marmalade was great, except the cold coffee ;) there are also living rooms with TV/playstation for entertaining :) we liked the days in this hostel and would book it again!
Stayed in dorm for 3 nights. Very comfy beds. Really enjoyed the atmosphere. Great staff, great common rooms that are well shielded from the rooms, so no noise from here. Rooms facing the road do get a lot of noise from there though, especially beeping streetlights all night. Nothing for light sleepers. Kitchen is well equipped but pretty dingy. Nonetheless, would definatly stay here again.
Great hostel in terms of facilities and personnel, although because of the thinness of the walls, you can heartiest about everything at all times. And yes, the lack of a person at reception at all times feels strange and as if anybody could just walk into the hostel at any time. But then again, it's Cuenca that we're talking about...
Great hostel, new and clean! Nice staff and good facilities: kitchen, breakfast, big rooms, big lockers, fast computer ect. Recommended!
Great location 1 block from the cathedral and everything is in walking distance. Free dinners on Sunday. Breakfast is toast and jam and also eggs. Staff are really friendly. Sometimes a bit noisey from the road outside.
