It's actually pretty good, but prices are pretty high as well. Price/quality balance is better in other places.

Its quite clean, however the interior noises are terrible. You can hear every neighbor. I would not go back. You can get much better value elsewhere.

The Hostal Macondo is well location in the center of old Cuenca, within basic walking distance of all of the museums. Web offered at no cost for 30 mins a day; better yet, wireless in some rooms and in the lobby near reception. The employees is really friendly; almost everyone is bilingual English Spanish. continental breakfast included is quite adequate and guests can order additional breakfast items at really reasonable cost. I highly recommend the muesli, which is a bowl of muesli at the bottom topped with a generous variety of fruits in season (pineapple, papaya, watermelon, bananas. ) in turn topped by plain yogurt. Filling and healthy. I saw no bunk beds. the shared rooms are enormous, with doubles and twins in them. We had a double ensuite, so the room was not large but certainly adequate. Despite being in the city center, Macondo is really quiet at night--a blessing. Travelers were all ages, from the UK, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, the US, Australia. Some based here for Spanish classes, anthropological research or trekking nearby. Food, shopping, bank machines, web cafes, and so on all within basic reach by foot. I would definitely stay here again. My average rating on value for money is simply due to the contrast of what we paid in Quito versus what we paid here. I imagine for an individual traveller with shared bathroom it would be good value for money.
