A Casa Naranja
Lonely Planet review
With stunning results, a local cuencana artist turned her 100-year-old family home into a modest but delightfully artsy guesthouse. Rooms are simple, and some have private bathrooms. Communal kitchen, too.
Our independent authors have visited A Casa Naranja and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Cuenca.
