great hostel in the middle of the center. The stuff was amazing, although the kids were playing every morning in the sleeping area, so it was quiet loud in the morning. Breakfast was great and the price was for Peru not too bad. Definitly stay here again, when coming to this nice city

We loved this place so much that we stayed an extra few days after our Colca Canyon trip. Lovely staff, such comfortable rooms and always clean. Average breakfast - bread rolls, fruit juice and tea/coffee. Great staff - they helped book our trip to Colca Canyon and kept our luggage for the three days. Excellent wifi. Good location, so easy...

a clean and tidy hostel with in walking distance of the main square and shopping, bars etc... being a little away you do not get all the traffic noise. Here in Arequipa I found the cheapest silver than any other town or country in South America. The staff are extremly friendly and helpful,

Everything facility wise is amazing and the free breakfast is delicious. Laid back environment, although a bit pricey for a private room for two. My favorite part of this hostel was the staff. Not only were they friendly, but very helpful as well. A few weeks back the sole of my hiking boot was destroyed and despite the many shoe... More

I stayed at this place for about 2 weeks and it was a great place to say. They had it all, tv in the rooms, kitchen for all, computers for all, wifi, many games, x box, and a loving support staff. The trips were all scheduled from their office and all went very good. They will also help you with... More

This is so much more than an ordinary hostel. The family who runs it were amazing to us, taking so much care to ensure we had information and comfort. Spacious, cosy and very central. The breakfast was fabulous too! We even had space to do our morning yoga practice with a view of the volcano.
