I booked a cheap room for a night ($20) and was amazed by the interior of the property which had internal courtyards running to a balcony at the back overlooking the river (where I got a free breakfast each morning). They looked after my bag after checkout and let me hang around for several hours before my transport left (good...

This hostel was exactly what I wanted for my one night stay in Cuenca. The location is great, the staff is very pleasant, it was reasonably clean, and it was a great deal for the price. I'll stay here the next time I'm in Cuenca.

Last minute walk in at 8.30pm, as had booked at a hostel up the road which turned out to be a disaster. Nice family run hostal, with a lovely family. They showed me the room, which was a good size, had good internet and was quiet. And waited for me to go get a refund from the other hostal and...

If you are not looking for luxury, this is the best option in town. Excellent location, surrounded by great restaurants, museum and a lovely walk way by the river. great view of the river down below and surrounding mountains and great hosts. The price is very accessible too. Highly recommended

The accommodation was homely and well stocked. The owners were friendly and helpful, who took an interest in their guests. It's a good place to stay, offers a nice view of the Tomebamba river from the terrace.

They are remodeling some of the areas but my river-front room was very clean and comfortable. It is an inexpensive option for staying in the historic center with a good view and close to all you need. Breakfast is included and typically satisfying. Good hot water and water pressure. Good bed and sheets.

Stayed here for 3 nights. First night stayed in a room facing the lobby. The room itself was great, had a nice bed, was decorated nicely and had character. Sound insulation was terrible though. Fortunately, the place is managed in a way that limits disturbances after hours. Got a good night sleep. Next 2 nights I stayed in one of...

Fantastic location in old section of Cuenca overlooking a babbling river. Room was nice and included breakfast was great. The matriarch of the hotel speaks no English but both her kids eagerly do. Price is decent for all you get.

“The interior rooms are away from the street and are quiet, but ask for a room overlooking the river, if one is available, as these actually have a view.”
