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

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.
