This is a really nice, clean hostel on a fairly busy road, in an area of Cuenca with plenty of bars and restaurants. The owner and her son (we think) were very welcoming and friendly. The breakfasts were really good and worth paying for. It felt very much like a family; although we were also told not to put our...

This hostel has a great location. Near the panama hat museum, near the big supermarket and down town in the old center. We stayed in a private room with a shared bathroom. This is the first negative point because there is only one bathroom including a toilet on the floor to serve (when it is full) at least 12 persons....

I don't have any complaints about the La Casa Cuencana. It's easy to find and in a great location for the price you pay. One downside is you probably will hear music when you're going to sleep at night. But if you're tired like I was, it's not going to make a difference. The family is very nice and very...

It was nice to find that there is at least one place in Cuenca that is still maintained and owned by Ecuadorians. They actually spoke in Spanish which is rare in ex-patriot heavy Cuenca. The family that runs the place is of course extremely kind and helpful. I had a private room and it was very comfortable and clean. (the...

“The hostal is split into two sections, which are a few doors down from each other on the street. If you book a dorm room or a private room with shared bathroom then you stay in one (which has a kitchen), and if you book a private room with a bathroom you stay i the other (which doesnt have a kitchen, but you can go down the street to use the other one).”
