About Mallki Hostel

Mallki is the Kichwa word for “fruit tree”. Working with this idea, we’ve developed a hostel inspired by nature and its fruits. The hostel offers a calm, relaxing atmosphere. With a balcony to take in the breeze and a garden with fire-pit underneath, there's plenty of space to stretch out and take in the day. The rooms are simple and sensible, with several cozy nooks tucked around the hostel for curling up with a book. There's always someone to hang out with in the common rooms - especially our most crucial staff member, Vince the Old English Sheepdog, who's always overjoyed to make a new friend.

Mallki's not just a place to rest your feet, however. We aim to feel like a family, so you feel at home. Our staff always has something up their sleeves, making every day an exciting experience – join us for homemade dinner; grab your camera and tour Cuenca’s most picturesque sites; explore local markets and museums; roam the city on one of our vintage bicycles; party with us on our themed bar-hops! Our activities change daily.

If you're staying for awhile, save money by cooking in our open kitchen, or by volunteering with us. Surf the web with our free WiFi, or check out our movie collection or book and clothing exchange. We offer laundry service, an on-call doctor, and all-day reception with a kiosk, for all your practical needs.

Accommodation Information

Mallki has both private rooms and mixed-gender dormitories with 4, 6, and 7 beds, and can sleep a total of 28 people. The private rooms have double beds and private bathrooms, and the dorms have bunk beds with lockers and shared bathrooms with 24/7 hot water. The downstairs dorm has a handicapped bathroom. Every bed comes with fresh linens, and the private rooms also include towels. Each room has its own special feature, ranging from a chimney, a skylight, or balcony access, to a sprawling mural.

Location Information

Mallki Hostel’s address is 1-31 Aurelio Aguilar, on the intersection with large Avenida Solano and just past Colegio Benigno Malo.

Mallki is next door to historic Benigno Malo and a wine shop. We’re two blocks from the river and three from Calle Larga, where you’ll find the best bars and cafes. Venture further and you’ll find museums, parks, cathedrals, open-air markets and historic sites.

From the hostel, you can quickly walk to ATMs, tiendas, the supermarket, and tasty restaurants ranging from Mexican and McDonalds to traditional almuerzos. We’re less than a 10-minute ride from the airport or bus terminal.
