We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here 😁 Tony was such an incredible host, probably one of the most attentive, thoughtful and caring hosts we’ve experienced in a hostel. On day one, he sat us down, poured us some water and endured we all sat nice and close as he gave us the 101 on Cuenca. He made sure that we all felt close, even with travellers outside our group. On that note, we met some amazing people…so it’s obvious positive vibes/casa attracts like minded souls. The rooms were great, beds comfy and anyth

Tony was a great help! He sat down and told me about getting a bus pass and a tram pass, and the various museums. He suggested taking the bus for day trips to various towns such as Gualaceo to check out the local food vendors, Chordeleg for the local silver filigree works and the Cajas National Park for hikes. It only costs $1.25 to $1.50 to visit these towns and places outside of Cuenca; so much cheaper than paying for a Viator trip! He also suggested various cafes, restaurants and markets.
