Pretty decent stay. Nice bar/lounge area for happy hour cocktails in the evening, but some of the bar staff were pretty miserable. Amazing location. Nice sitting room area with lots of films and space to chill.

We really enjoyed our stay. Stayed in the 10 bed bamboo dorm. Tonnes of room with lockers. Bathrooms are a little untidy but that's expected with so many guests. Breakfast is a bread roll and jam with juice and coffee but it's free :) The blonde, female staff on duty is not familiar with the city and gave incorrect information multiple times. Other staff members were more helpful. Location is perfect!

I had a great time here. I stayed in the 10 bed bamboo room on the top floor which was very comfortable, just a bit cold at night. Free breakfast was basic but for me it was enough until lunchtime. Good WiFi, hot showers, communal areas, huge DVD selection with a TV. Salsa lessons on Thursday. And really well located for tons of good restaurants and places to go out. Perfect!

Good hot shower, had a double room with a shared bathroom. Noisy and echoey due to the courtyard and staff wasn't too helpful but a good location, comfortable bed.

Yakumama is not far from the main square so you can walk everywhere. Lots of places to eat nearby. 10 bed dorm is spacious and comfortable. Cool common spaces which create a relaxed atmosphere. Breakfast was standard. Wifi worked well in common areas, not as well in dorms. Lots of information on sights in town. An enjoyable stay.

Yakumama is a nice and cheap hostel well located in the city center of Cuenca. The 10 beds dorm (without bunk beds !) is spacious and has some good vibes. Nice TV room The included breakfast is not wonderful, and they don't have a computer. A bit "dead" on Sundays

I would not recommend this hostel. The Sunday staff couldn't even tell us where we could get some food and they didn't have a map. There is no kitchen and the bar where they serve food was shut two of the three days. The 10bed dorm was freezing cold and the bells woke you up really early as the room was made of glass. Breakfast was a bread roll and jam and extras were very expensive. One of the staff at breakfast was drinking from the blender from the kitchen! Not great hygiene. Showers were hot

This hostel has great and reliable wifi and hot showers. Great movie room! Great location in town! 10 room dorm is great and spacious - quiet at night time. Atmosphere is just ok, nothing great.
