My time at Casa de Sillar was exceptional! I had made a reservation the day before and I was greeted at the door by a friendly man who was aware I was coming and greeted me by name! My room was very comfortable and my bed was one of the best mattresses I had had in a long time in... More

We arrived after a long night bus from Cuzco and were greeted by the friendly, albeit quiet owner, who immediately recognized our fatigue and immediately led us to our room to allow us to rest, before we received a delicious and filling breakfast with great coffee, despite not staying there the previous night. He also provided information on the city... More

This is a pretty standard hostel, nothing special nothing bad. It's reasonably clean, there's hot water in the shower and paper in the toilet! The beds are comfy, it has very good wifi (I facetimed successfully for once!) and a nice open courtyard in the center which catches the light. It's nice and quiet if you want a good nights... More

At first they did not get our booking but the staff soon made us feel welcome and catered for our needs by storing luggage, suggesting places to go and organising taxis. Great breakfast and cooking facilities. Lovely garden and rooftop shared areas.

I stayed here for two months. During the second month the apartment manager was fired for theft, but not before he had come to my room smiling and asking if I could pay for the 2nd month that day please. I found out two days later when another person on the staff asked when I was going to pay. After... More

Its 10 mintues walk from the plaza de armas, but alot of the restaurants and bars are in between the hostel and the plaza, so its super convenient for... More

This place is definitely a good bet if you're counting your pennies. The rooms -- all constructed out of sillar (the white volcanic rock that is used all over Arequipa) -- are relatively big, the bathrooms are clean and there is plenty of hot water and good shower pressure. There is also a shared kitchen and living room area with... More
