When I was check in: oh, I made a mistake! After 10 minutes, I changed my mind :)) I have a room alone (4 beds), infinity HOT water, very nice, friendly Senorita as the owner. Good wifi, free maps etc. Very calm and noiseless. Clean has new meaning on this place! All the beds have separate lamp. I had no... More

Such a lovely hostel with great facilities, massive area for socialising and the rooms are spacious and very clean!! Such a shame not many people were staying here as j can see that it has the potential to be a... More

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,

However the there nights we stayed we were woken at about 7am every morning by the in house family children outside our door. Our room also had no window and the shower curtain wouldn't keep the...

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
