La Cigale provides the luxuries of a hotel for the prices of a hostel! Our accommodation includes breakfast, towels, soap, WiFi/internet, hot water with great pressure, ensuite bathrooms and housekeeping everyday. Centrally located within Cuenca's historical centre, you should come stay with us!

La Cigale (The Cicada) is the symbol of the south of France. It represents welcome and good fortune. And this is what we do best by inviting all ages and nationalities to our beautifully restored colonial house located in the heart of Cuenca's UNESCO World Heritage Listing.

We provide attractive 4 and 6 bed shared, twin, triple and double (matrimonial) rooms with ensuite bathrooms. All include towels, soap, WiFi/internet, power outlets, bed lamps/tables, comfortable mattresses and extra blankets.

The bathrooms have plenty of hot water and great water pressure. Rooms and bathrooms are cleaned every day and we make your bed!

All rooms (except $6 shared) include a served breakfast in our excellent restaurant from 8am to 10am.

Our popular bar provides a great atmosphere by candlelight and good tunes every night until 11:30pm. Happy Hour drinks are from 5pm to 8pm, and board games and cards to rent for free. We also have a chill out area with a hammock.
