Great value and excellent location. The communal space is the restaurant which is very popular and gets really packed. The beds are really comfortable.but there are no lockers in the rooms.


How can a traveller not be impressed when you arrive at a Hostel wherein the Staff practice Random Acts of Kindness. I would look forward to staying at this Hostel again.


All things considered, this was my favorite hostel in all of Ecuador. I stayed in a private ensuite room for 3 nights. Has a great atmosphere, nice clean rooms, and really friendly staff. The included breakfast is excellent, and quite a few options to choose from. The restaurant is also great, excellent Ecuadorian and international meals. Location - Cuenca isn't that big, so most places around the centro is walkable, but even then this hostel is excellently located close to everything.


I enjoyed staying at this hostel. This is my first time staying at the hostel with the bar/restaurant. The staff members are very friendly. Food was great and they make really good drinks. Diego is very friendly and makes good drinks. This is a happening place and you get to meet many people.


The value for money GREAT, if you are looking for a clean hostel and confortable this is the one! Litlle bit noizy at night until the bar downstair close, the staff work there are unfriendly.
