This is an excellent base in Cuenca. It's centrally located, really friendly staff and delicious breakfast. The wifi is good when it works- otherwise sketchy and limited but this is the same everywhere in Ecuador. The place is full of character and you really will be charmed by this. The only downside is the poor noise insulation. It's fine if... More

Great place with friendly staff and great breakfast but was not informed about road closure in front for next year or more and misleading free parking info. parking free only between 8 pm and 7 am. not for your entire stay. Also a block away from hotel.

This accomodation is very nice, cosy and near to the center of Cuenca. The owners are very kind and take care themselves of all. Everything is clean and the breakfast, always served with fresh juice and fresh eggs, is absolutely delicious.

The breakfast was fine, eggs any style, fresh fruit, breads with a sandwich maker to heat them up, juice and coffee. Eac time we had a request or needed information, they went out of their way to help... More

Dear Mr. Freydin, the truth was that the last night of your stay we had new guests, who first were staying in our hostel, who arrived at midnight and instead of heading to their rooms were located in one of the living rooms the second floor to talk as inadequate, an issue that was noticed the next morning and apologize...

I stayed in this hostal for three nights. The owner was so concerned for my welfare after an emergency had me traveling alone.

I had to go to Cuenca to a family reunion and was fortunate to stay at this Hostal in the Historic part of town, the decor at this Hostal makes you feel the true colonial architecture, very clean Owners are always at the location, breakfast is complete and very fresh. Hope to come back soon

It's lovely place! Small but lovely, beautifully decorated. Rooms are small, but nice. The best thing about this hotel is customer service. Everybody is super nice and helpful. Very good location close to all attractions.

It was night, cold, (august 2015 - I know I am a bit late commenting) and to enter in that amazing soft bed with a perfect cover was just what we needed.

Owners and staff were very welcoming and friendly! They graciously let us stay late as we were taking a night but out of the city. Beds were comfy and breakfast was great (eggs, fresh juices, good coffee, croissants). Location was great and close to all the main attractions of Cuenca.

“Request room off the street due to construction although most of their rooms are as far as I could tell.”

“They have all different types of rooms. A few are larger, but there were a few common sitting areas to make up for the smaller size of the rooms. Only downside was being able to hear neighbor's barking dog in the night - which happens almost anywhere in Cuenca”
