Minor problems getting on internet, but I highly recommend Posada del Rio

Very charming and quiet old house. We were very well welcomed by the two sisters who hold the place. The living room is very spacious and nice as well.


Cheap rooms in a quiet hostel, on an excellent location in Cuenca. Luckily, earplugs were not necessary since the nearby nightclubs were not very busy (even though we arrived on a Saturday night). Like in most hostels, the shared bathroom on the third floor could use a makeover. It was clean but smelled a bit damp.
