    I love this hostel! Tony is so lovely and gave me so many recommendations for things to do in Cuenca and in Ecuador in general. I really loved the rooftop, you can sit with a view of the city and mountains and watch the sunset.

    The owner Tony really made this hostel for us, sat down and helped us plan our entire Ecuador itinerary, cooked us some mean veggie food and tried to make everyone feel included! The hostel Was in a prime location with a view over Cuenca and super secure, would highly recommend!

    Had the perfect stay here. The city itself is one of the nicest in South America and one could not ask for anything more from the hostel. Tony is the greatest host and can and will solve literally any problem or question you have, not to mention the amazing events he hosts everyday. Just an outstanding experience all around. My only criticism is that I didn't stay longer.

    Amazing hostel! Great location, awesome dinners, and good place to meet and hang with people! The nightly dinners are delicious and a great way to get to know people. The WiFi in the rooms didn’t work too well, but it was fine on the roof (which also has an amazing view!).

    We really enjoyed our stay in Cafecito. The atmosphere was so friendly from the minute we stepped o Though the door. We are older but we’ were made to feel totally included The terrace is FABULOUS as is Tony, who knows everything (without. Being pushy) and Nadia made us breakfast each morning. We had a wonderful time, Anybody who goes there will feel comfortable, I am sure. The square in front is also interesting and there are two markets, one huge and one smaller right n the doorstep.

    A nice place to relax after a day of walking around the beautiful city of Cuenca, with a terrace that looks over the city. Tony has answers to most of your South American travel itinerarie questions and helps create a community of travelers on the terrace overlooking Cuenca.

    Cafecito was an amazing place to stay! Tony really makes you feel like you're part of his family. He had a chef come and cook for us, and a group of us all had a "family dinner" which was lovely. Even though the hostel was pretty empty when I stayed there, I still made friends and went hiking thanks to Tony's suggestions. The balcony is a great place to hang out, and it's located right in Old Town so great location. I would definitely return.

    Super fint hostel, virkelig fed rooftop bar. Der var desværre ikke så mange boende her da jeg besøgte hostellet, men de få der var her og særligt hostel ejeren var super chill.

    Had a fun time here. Fairly basic accommodations, but the rooftop bar, the central location overlooking the plaza and Tony's hospitality are all winners. Little quiet at this time of year, but that didn't stop it from being a fun stay. Would recommend.

    Great location, great water pressure and super hot, amazing balcony with best hostel views in Cuenca and reasonably priced. Cons: uncomfortable beds, the showers and sinks didn’t drain fast so your time was limited before it overflowed, and there is no kitchen for guests although food is so delicious and cheap in Cuenca that it doesn’t matter unless you’re pinching pennies. Also you don’t have a key to the front door but that’s common for security reasons at most hostels in Ecuador. Worth it
