Tony is a really great host, so helpful with tips for around Cuenca, and when you're hanging out on the beautiful rooftop patio he will make you tea and chat with you. The location is great, central between airport/train stations and the lovely markets + shops in El Centro. Whether you want privacy or a great place to meet other travellers, El Cafecito has a room for you.

It needs a lot of improvement. Tony is a cool person and gave us a lot of tips. Our room didn’t have windows outside , only 1 window facing the lobby - so we could hear everyone coming down the stairs and the light in the lobby was reflecting in the room the whole night. Also, next to our bed was the window to the bathroom of another tenant - so we could hear them each time they used the bathroom. The room was clean , a bit too small And for 2 people - and we didn’t receive any soap.

Me aloje solo 1 noche pero la pasé extraordinario. Tony es súper atento, hizo que haga amigos al instante, ya que se tomó el tiempo de explicarnos (a todos los que compartíamos la habitación) todo sobre Cuenca, que lugares visitar, donde está ubicado todo, los mejores lugares a visitar. Todo muy top la verdad. Me sentí como en casa
