10/10 Exceptional

The best family hostel in Cuenca, Ecuador.
It’s about 10 minutes from the airport, located in a couple of blocks away the the city’s main attraction - the The Historic Center! Perfect view of the city from the guest lounge & balcony on the 3rd floor. Affordable, comfortable accommodation.
