    I never leave reviews, unless I find the hostel outstanding. This hostel definitely exceeded my expectations. First of all, I've never seen a hostel so clean and taken care of. Secondly, the staff is just great and kind. Location is perfect, quiet but you can still reach the main sites by foot easily. Cuenca is beautiful, and the hostel made it an even better stay. Enjoy!

    Really nice modern hostel - very clean and comfortable with nice free breakfast (great coffee). We were given a useful map when we asked but it would be even better to get this at check in. Lockers are quite small and not in rooms. Overall a great hostel - I would really recommend it!

    Lovely, very helpful staff and attractive hostel. However is on a very busy road with beeping traffic lights going off all night and a lot of pollution. Showers were good, beds a little rickety but very comfortable

    Great kitchen for cooking for yourselves. Big TV with comfortable sofas to chill on. Breakfast is decent. Nicely kept with good showers and it was clean. Friendly faces at reception and from the cleaners. Very quiet- no atmosphere at all really whilst we were there. No locker in room- very small lockers outside reception.
