The Point hostal in Arequipa is a nice place to stay! Perfect location close to Plaza de Armas, hot shower, clean rooms, comfortable bed. I tried The Pint in Cusco too but that was horrible. I recommend to stay in The Point in Arequipa :)

Very nice staff and Hostel. The rooms are okay but the roofterase is gold ! Has a nice bar and billard too. Near the Plaza de armas (2 Blocks). Only thing that you have to pay 5 Soles everytime you want to use the kitchen. I spend two weeks there and had a great time.

Although the place has potential; good location and okay layout! I did not enjoy my stay here first and formostly due to the rude and uncareing staff. They were not freindly on arrival, don't try to understand you when you are struggling with the language barrier and I had an incident where a member of staff was banging on the... More

We quite liked this hostel - sadly not a lot of people, but a decent common area and outside hammocks to read in. The dorm was really big, so you can't be a light sleeper. Also there could have been more toilets for this many people. Not a very social place, but definitely tranquil and chill.

I stayed here 2.5 weeks and can't give enough praise to the staff. They're friendly, accommodating and the main reason I stayed on here. The 8-bed dorm on the top floor is comfortable, clean and spacious. It's also the furthest away from the bar which can get pretty noisy. This is a party hostel so if you want peace and... More

I stayed at The Point Arequipa for 2 and a half weeks and this is one of my favorite hostels from my time in Peru. Excellent location, clean facilities, comfy dorms, hot showers, excellent wifi connection throughout the entire premises, and plenty of space for lounging ( bar, rooftop terrace with hammocks & a beautiful view, comfy sitting areas in...

This is my second time coming back to this hostel but, I can really say it has completely changed! it looks renewed with plenty relax areas, clean toilets, breakfast still quiet basic, but kitchen is included so, you have the option to cook a great lunch after. And it usually every Friday there is a band from Arequipa playing local... More

Good location, friendly staff, affordable prices - this is pretty much where the praise list ends. The bar gets too loud when there's a party, or maybe dorms are too close to it. Pity the rooftop terrace is not used. Kitchen not really designed for guests, they let you use it for basic stuff but charge you if you want... More

We stayed at this hostel for one night when we arrives to Arequipa. Its not that bad but not good either. We were staying in a dorm room for 21 soles per person. It was right next to the road, so there was a lot of noise. The drunk guests were not that good at being quiet either. The beds... More

Worst place i have stayed. We like party postels but playing music max volume crackling the speakers till 1am with no party going on is insane. Then to wake everyone up with the same broken speakers is beyond insane. The only song this "bartender" aka prawn of the sea did pla through was german marching band music. And when the... More
