    Great location close to everything in the old town. Don't use address since it's about 4 blocks away. Super comfy beds and quick Wi-Fi, can watch a 50" television with good sports/movie package

    Hostel was very empty, even on a holiday weekend (likely because it’s so new). Very quiet; hardly any guests. Good water temperature in the shower. No towels provided for dorms. Staff was fine.

    This hostel was such a gem because it was SPOTLESS! I really got my bang for my buck regarding that as well as the location. I know it's a new hostel, so I didn't quite feel the sense of community yet or didn't really find chill hangout spots, but I'm sure that'll come with them. It was actually quite a relief to find a quiet, clean place whilst backpacking alone in Ecuador.

    Good hostel for the price we paid. It is not located in the main street with bars but it is still in the historic area of Cuenca. The only negative perhaps is that the bathroom is small for a room with 8 beds and the room needs a couple more drawers to facilitate organizing the luggage. Very clean place and quiet atmosphere.

    The beds are super comfy, everything is clean, and it’s pretty close to the center Cuenca. The only problem with this host is the social life is totally dead. But it’s a nice place to stay if you don’t mind being alone.

    There was no almost nobody when I stayed there, lack of atmosphere. Just a place where to sleep and that's all. Good location, clean and boring.

    I was a bit nervous about trying this hostel because it had no reviews - I would say it definitely is in "developing" mode and has not been developed as a place for foreign travellers, despite the nice looking logo. Positives: Location Cost Size of room Negatives: The kitchen was an absolute disgrace - completely dirty and the gas wasn't working. They seemed surprised someone would want to use it The WiFi was spotty and unreliable the whole time The staff were fine but not that warm

    Wanderlust is clean and well located in historic Cuenca. However, the description is very misleading. There is no kitchen available or free breakfast and hostel is not staffed 24hours. Washing is not complementary ($2 / kilo). Hot water was patchy and common area (there is only one small seating area) was very cold. No frills at all, but our private room was nice.
