    Great place to stay in Cuenca. Very central location, beautiful terrace overlooking a large plaza, excellent market right across the plaza, cleanliness, consistent hot shower with excellent pressure and most of all, the owner is very welcoming and a wealth of information about Cuenca and about Ecuador. He in fact, runs a business on the side, where for a nominal price, he coordinates trips to Ecuador using his personal contacts and in- depth knowledge of Ecuador and northern Peru. Thanks!

    Great hostel with an awesome location and amazing rooftop views. Tony was a wonderful host with tons of knowledge not only about Cuenca and Ecuador but also the world in general. Tony is readily available and excited to share his knowledge of Cuenca and Ecuador with you, so be sure to chat with him he is a really great dude! The hostel is centrally located and near a lot of great places to eat while also being easily accessible to major attractions in the city. Highly recommend El Cafecito!

    El Cafecito has the perfect location and atmosphere and the friendliest, most helpful staff. I was so close to everything; when I needed a break from touring I could come right back. If I was hungry, I could cross the street and go to the Mercado. The room was clean and tidy (no lockers though) Tony is the best host, helping me out beyond expectations. The coffee was some of the best I’ve had and the view from the terrace a dream. Thanks El Cafecito! I felt safe as a female solo traveler.

    Tony is by far the best hostel host I've ever had. Responsive, gave a great overview of Cuenca on arrival. Hostel rooftop was great. Near many places to eat and shops. More in the locals part of town - not the expat / touristy part, which I liked. Rooms simple and clean. It can be loud at night due to the surrounding area - the hostel itself is not noisy. I would stay again for sure.

    El Cafecito is centrally located within walking distance from the bus terminal. It’s right across from a market and close to many restaurants. Tony had loads of recommendations and tips for things to do in and around the city. Subset views from the terrace were a lovely bonus!

    Tony is an absolutely amazing host. He gives you a detailed briefing of Cuenca and attractions to enjoy. He's extremely accommodating, speaks fluent Spanish and English, and offers his WhatsApp to you for anything you need during your stay! Thank you Tony!
