Our 6 person dorm was really spacious and the beds were really comfortable! The lounge area and cafe/bar downstairs were really nice too!

This is a wonderful hostel. It has a great location for tourism around Cuenca, and is very clean. The beds were particularly comfortable, and we loved hanging out in the garden with the cats.

no towels, no bed sheet to line the blanket for private double room. smoke came from the rest into my room every night. wait 10 min. for the guard to open the main door in the morning before 9:00pm. The building is too run down. The patio looks like garbage dump. poor breakfast. should not put a plate on top of the bread to serve people.

Great hostel! Perfect location, comfy beds, nice staff and so on... Only drawback when I stayed was that the bar was closed for renovation, but it's probably great too. Def would stay there again!

Great hostel, great staff, great atmosphere. I stayed well beyond the amount of time I alloted because I liked this place and city so much. Great movie room, plenty of hammocks and a nice garden. The only thing is I found the washrooms were not cleaned all the time and the breakfast was small.

Lacking a bit of atmosphere but a did the job fine. Nice garden area and nice you can have bonus bits for breaky for a small cost. Shame the toilets were a bit smelly and graffitied.

Staff was super friendly and helpful, hostel fairly centrally located, beds were comfy with personal lockers. Great mix of laid back and "party" atmosphere. I'm not one to party every night, but the hostel did throw a Friday night party with a DJ from London and all guests were able to attend for free. Other nights were just general socialization with other guests in the bar and common room. My only complaint was that the 10 bed dorm is pretty drafty and also the roof leaks when it rains.

Our stay was ok, the staff were friendly and always willing to help us. The prices of food were ok as well. Maybe the cleanliness is not the best but is not disgusting

I enjoyed laying in the hammock in the garden. This hostel is located very close to clubs, pus and karaoke bars, which was perfect for us. Very good value for money.

This is a good place to stay in beautiful Cuenca as it´s close to the historical centre and is cheap. It´s run by a young Swiss sister and brother team who speak both English and Spanish fluently. As well as the usual jam and bread breakfast you can also order extras. The building is large and there are ample toliets and showers with hot water. There is also a yard at the back where you can relax and a room where you can play beer pong. The beds are comfortable and lockers are provided.

Breakfast included was not that big, but the brother and the sister, from Switzrland, owning the hotel are very nice and always happy to help you... Nice atmosphere, an hotel made for backpacker on the road wanting to have a good time in Cuenca!!

This hostel is a nice, pleasant place to stay in Cuenca. The beds are massive, and there are lockable boxes in the rooms. There is a massive courtyard with hammocks, as well as a bar to hang out in. My only complaint is that they close the reception on Sunday's. Being that we spent a full day there on Sunday, this was a hassle, as there was no one to help us out and just the night security who was constantly letting us in and out.
