Property Description

Mallki Hostel is your home away from home in the beautiful city of Cuenca, offering a relaxed and comfortable environment to meet fellow backpackers and travellers.
Our hostel is perfectly located to explore all that Cuenca has to offer. Just 5-10 minutes’ walk away you can find the main square, historic centre, markets, football stadium, river walks, parks, bars, cafes and restaurants. We are close enough to walk, but far enough away for a peaceful night’s sleep.
Our shared dorm rooms feature cosy, curtained beds for your comfort and privacy, and power outlets inside the lockers so you can leave your devices charging safely overnight or during the day.
We serve a delicious vegan breakfast daily, included in the price. On Wedensdays and Sundays we offer an open barbecue for guests to use.
With our 24 hour reception and free bag storage for guests, you can wait for your bed or your bus in our common areas, which include a cosy reading nook, a balcony and beautiful garden. (Please let us know if you will be arriving early.)
We have loads of information and advice about hiking routes in the nearby, picturesque, Cajas National Park. We also have some camping equipment available for rent.
Check in : 1pm. Check out : 11am. Please contact us to enquire about early check in or late check out and let us know if you will be arriving early.

Nice hostel. I’m staying an additional week! My room is perfect for me. It had been months since I had a hot water shower! Great facility, nice gardens, plenty of niches to spend time in, whatever your mood

Great vibe for meeting people. Great staff including Milena. (They mostly only speak Spanish, but basic Spanish is fine) Frequent fragrance spraying (automatic) and not many windows in the dorm lead me to ask about turning it off, and they offered the upstairs room which didn’t have a sprayer (the bathrooms did). A bit old of a hostel, but does the job. They even have breakfast and local products for sale on a small stand in reception. Overall recommended for a cheap good vibe stay in Cuenca!
