We had a private room for 4 nights. We liked the room with its huge and comfortable bed a lot. Bathroom and shower (hot!) is good as well. You can also use the kitchen and in-house loundry service. Owner and staff are very friendly and helped a lot with DIY daytrips (eg. to Cajas). For breakfast we went to Café Nocallacta in Calle Larga (highly recommended, esp. the coffee!) The location of the hostel can't be better!


Nice, clean, quiet hostel. A few minutes to city center, big supermarket. On weekends quite loud due to parties around the hostel. No lockers but seemed no problem, no common room and unfortunately kitchen has only little equipment. Staff helps with everything.


Spent two nights here and would recommend it! Great location, quiet but near many restaurants, bars, the river, etc. Kind and helpful staff that lent us umbrellas during a downpour. Nice comfortable beds and a small rooftop terrace!

If you are looking for a nice hostel in a brilliant location in the Old Town, but don't mind that there are no communal areas, this is ideal for you! The owners are very friendly and helpful and speak very good English which helped us! We had a private room with en suite - perfect for travelling couples.

Stayed 3 nights on the second floor. Twin room with private bathroom. Very quiet, comfortable beds. No noise from other guests. Plenty of hot water, good WiFi. Internal courtyard covered above but open at the sides so no trapped smells etc. Good cheap breakfast at the hostals cafe next door. Secondhand bookshop beside offering 2 to 1 on returns. 5 mins walk from the main square. Owner friendly and spoke good english. .

The lady that works there is very nice. They cleaned my room next day and they don't usually do that at other hostels. There was always hot water and the bed was quite comfortable. There was a nice desk and a cute closet for clothes. Wi-fi worked great. Really recommend this place.

Located conveniently at Calle Larga and only about 5 blocks from the center. Very clean and friendly staff. Hot water was actually hot!
