This hostel is nicely located in the historic center close to the market (where you must stop by at some point to get a delicious queso helado). They can arrange the typical Arequipa bus tours for you (and it will be cheaper that doing so directly in the square where bus companies operate). The best is to enjoy breakfast in...

We loved staying in this hotel! Although the most of the personal doesn't speak english and we don't speak spanish they were very friendly and did everything to help us and with hands and feet everything worked out all the time. Plus there is Cesar who runs the tour company there. He speaks very well english and helped us book...

We came here after reading good reviews. It's a lovely building and the rooms are nice too. Soap and towels provided which is nice. Wifi Is not great though and not available in all rooms. But it does have a kitchen and washing facilities. Over all I would recommend the place for the reasonable price

I stayed here for two weeks while studying Spanish in Arequipa. The 6-bed dorm was great value (25 soles at time of writing) with down blankets, lockers (key deposit required), WIFI throughout, 2 computers, excellent breakfast on the rooftop (with deckchairs and a gazebo). The kitchen facilities were great too and proximity to the markets means you can grab ingredients...

We had a lovely stay in this hostel! The rooms were really nice, high ceilings and a nice bed. The shower was the best we had so far in south-America! On the roof of the hostel is a really great terrace with relaxing chairs and a good view over Arequipa and the surrounding mountains. Wifi is good throughout the entire...

The good bits - location, roof top balcony, wifi, hot showers The not so good bits - inconsistent pricing, we stayed twice before and after the colca canyon and paid different prices for the same bed, one plug socket in the 6 bed dorm, 2 keys for...

The location is good, close to the main tourist attractions and open market. Clean, good showers, computers with internet connection in the lobby and good wi-fi in the rooms. Terrace on the roof is just great, both as a place to eat, chill out or meet other travelers. Staff was very helpful, especially Cesar who gave us some very good...

I stayed at this hostel for three nights. Everyone that works at the hostel is very friendly and helpful. On the first day I arrived, the man at the service desk went out of his way to help me find a place to buy bottled water. The hostel is in a good location, close to the plaza de armas, pedestrian...

I had no idea where to stay when arriving in Arequipa, but figured I wanted to be close to the center, and didn't have a huge budget. I read some good reviews and liked the pictures on their website, so I figured I'd try out this hostel and liked it so much I ended up staying 4 nights. The building...

I stayed for almost 2 weeks at the hostel because I felt very comfortable there. It had everything I needed.... very clean, spacious, good wifi, good people.
