Great atmosphere, great staff, great facilities. This is not a party hostel! If you like party hostel go somewhere else. But if you're traveling for a longer period and need a place to chill, feel at home and meet interesting people, this is it. Wifi all over, including bedrooms. Plenty of bathrooms. Nice kitchen. Nice table by the kitchen to... More

My friends and I stayed in this hostel, and I would definitely recommend it. Pros: - Best wifi during my entire 3 weeks in Peru - Friendly and helpful staff - Clean - Great community atmosphere and common areas - Two blocks (ten minute walk) from Plaza de Armas Cons: - I honestly can't think of any cons

Located five blocks from the main square in Arequipa, this hostel is close enough to downtown to be convenient while just far enough out to be quiet. It's located in a wealthier neighbourhood, and as two females, we felt entirely safe walking back to the hostel after dark. The staff at reception was friendly, although they were chronically short of... More

Stayed in Arequipay Backpackers for 3 nights and absolutely loved it! We booked our colca canyon tour through them and it was really good - great guide and nice accommodation. The hostel itself is awesome, really friendly and helpful staff, a great kitchen where you can make your own food, an amazing DVD collection and a nice outdoor area. The... More

We stayed here for four nights - two nights in the double room and two in the twin. The rooms are clean and quite big but a bit cold (however there are a lot of warm blankets). The kitchen was ok and perfect to cook in. The breakfast was not included but bread, butter and jam were offered for free.... More

Super friendly staff and couldn't do enough for us. Games room and movie room are excellent. Hammocks in the back are brilliant for relaxing after a days sightseeing or just having a beer. Breakfast is a bit light but lovely all the same. Would highly recommend

Good rooms, clean, quiet hostel overall. Nice movie room and communal spaces. Easy booking of yours and buses on site. The only annoyance was in the mornings, around check out time, the staff come in and out of the dorm constantly without knocking. Even the young girl of one of the cleaners barged into the room without knocking. Mi joke... More

There is nothing bad to say about this hostel, I had a great stay. The kitchen is clean and well-equipped, the staff is super-friendly and the showers are amazing with almost unlimited hot water. They have loads of movies and its not too far to walk to the main plaza nor the supermarket. Simply loved it!
