The hosts are really warm and welcoming and they also give good information about how to reach certain places. The location is excellent, just on the edge of the historical center. Rooms were cleaned every day which is not common in hostels, and the nights were quiet with an excellent sleeping quality.


Nice hostel in a good location. More of a guesthouse than a hostel. No facilities really except a really small kitchen. Really nice staff and comfy room.


Pretty good basic hostel, no negative comments really. Location is ideal.


Location was great for the town centre. Kitchen was poorly equipped so difficult to prepare anything. No communal area so difficult to chat to other travellers. Staff friendly and place clean. Ceiling in our room was bare plywood and not much natural light in the bedroom but a good size room.


Good hostel in the old town of Cuenca, clean rooms, nice helpful staff.


The owners and staff were excellent and we will be returning in a week or so. I do think that we had the one of the best rooms though.

Owner Comment (Hide)
thanks for taking the time and do the comment thanks again


The manager and his wife are very friendly and make extra efforts to answer questions about local places to see and the best time and most economical way to see them. The owner speaks English well. Reliable fast free WiFi. Rooftop deck. Located 50 meters from busy Cale Larga, so close to the bars, restaurants in the Historic Center but a quieter location than hotels and hostels even one block away. Downstairs is a very good cafe, laundry + Claro mobile/web cabins directly across the street.

Nice place, great location, helpful stuff. I stayed there twice and would always come back. It can be quite busy and you might hear that in some rooms.

Awesome place, awesome staff. Our night bus showed up outrageously early on a Saturday morning, and we woke the proprietor up, embarrassed, but hoping to at least leave our bags. She instead offered us a small room to sleep in, then later upgraded us to a bigger one. Perfect location, comfy bed, chill atmosphere, super clean... awesome value in Cuenca.


I stayed in the private with a bathroom and everything was fine, but if you are over 6 feet tall the bathroom may be a tight fit.
