El Cafecito - Hotel Cuenca - Ecuador

El Cafecito is a decent option if you want a cheap dorm bed close to Cuenca's attractions and nightlife. However, it also has its own restaurant and bar in the colonial courtyard and the noise level often makes it hard to sleep. The private rooms are overpriced for what you get, but the hostel's social atmosphere still draw backpackers from around the world. The chilled-out café often becomes crowded and rowdy come happy hour time (daily 5-7 p.m.). El Cafecito also has locations in Quito and in Bogota, Colombia, but the one in Cuenca seems a bit more rundown than the other two.
