Just spent one night, but it was lovely. The hosts were helpful and friendly. Beautiful garden in the courtyard - really a little paradise in the busy city block. Clean and well-kept. Great food in the area too!

Don Luis and Delores where the most lovely hosts! They were just so sweet and made us feel right at home. We arrived at 6am after a long bus journey and he took us straight to the room and told us to rest! We also stayed late on our final day, waiting for a bus out of Cuenca. I was...

We stayed here for five days between Xmas and New Year. Great location, within two blocks of the river and very close to the cathedrals. Room was small, but with ample storage space to put away suitcases and hang clothes. Bathroom also very small, but ample hot water at all times. Room had been completely redone so everything was spotless....

The hostel is close to the center and offers rooms with private bathrooms. In the common kitchen you can prepare breakfast. The living room invites to rest or watch TV. The patio is nice as well. The spanish-speaking staff was really adorable and helpful, I would fully recommend it!

We stayed for 2 nights. I was amazed on how quiet and lovely our stay was. The owners were always around and asked if we needed anything. They also had an in house doctor. I felt like i was staying at a family member's house. Very relaxed And well taken care of. Definitely coming back!

Simple, inexpensive hostal with all the exquisite charm of an old Cuenca colonial villa. The rooms are rustic but clean. Don Luis was particularly helpful. Note the small painting of the entrance hall.

Rooms are very quiet. We had hot water, a large room, and got the tip to tkae the public bus to ingapirca which costs for 2 14 dollars plus 12 for the entrance fee. If we'd book it via a travel agency it would have cost as 100$

“Best to see in person and compare with other hostels and hotels. Be prepared to bargain, don't pay anything close to the first price asked. If you reserve, do it for only about three days, so you'll have a good excuse to move.”
