This hostel has so much potential but unfortunately my stay was just average. The good bits - location, roof top balcony, wifi, hot showers The not so good bits - inconsistent pricing, we stayed twice before and after the colca canyon and paid different prices for the same bed, one plug socket in the 6 bed dorm, 2 keys for...

The location is good, close to the main tourist attractions and open market. Clean, good showers, computers with internet connection in the lobby and good wi-fi in the rooms. Terrace on the roof is just great, both as a place to eat, chill out or meet other travelers. Staff was very helpful, especially Cesar who gave us some very good... More

I stayed at this hostel for three nights. Everyone that works at the hostel is very friendly and helpful. On the first day I arrived, the man at the service desk went out of his way to help me find a place to buy bottled water. The hostel is in a good location, close to the plaza de armas, pedestrian...

I had no idea where to stay when arriving in Arequipa, but figured I wanted to be close to the center, and didn't have a huge budget. I read some good reviews and liked the pictures on their website, so I figured I'd try out this hostel and liked it so much I ended up staying 4 nights. The building... More

I stayed for almost 2 weeks at the hostel because I felt very comfortable there. It had everything I needed.... very clean, spacious, good wifi, good people. The staff were lovely, very helpful, caring. They were probably the only reason I stayed as long as I did! The hostel itself is also very close to tourist attractions & markets. I... More

Positives Hot showers Stunning views Helpful trip organiser - there for one hour a day Negatives Unfortunately the owner and his family spoke no English and were extremely rude when they realised that we spoke no Spanish, he knew the words 'pay' and room' so would aggresively say those when he wanted his money! Entering the hostel proved difficult! There... More

Housed in a well-cared for colonical building in the heart of Arequipa, Posada del Parque, or Pirwa Park Hostel, is a family-run establishment. The rooms are large, high-ceilinged and comfortable. The common areas are attractive and comfortable, and very clean. The roof-top terrace has several seating areas both covered and uncovered with spectacular views of the surrounding volcanos. The hostel... More

Nice cosy homely hostel, we stayed in a 6 bed room which had nice balcony doors which opened out so the room was airy and light. The roof terrace is really nice with sun loungers so you can chill out up there, there is also access to a kitchen so we made our own food a few times which saves... More

We had a large, clean and interesting room. We arrived in the early evening and the ladies at the front desk could not do enough for us, they were helpful and welcoming. Breakfast on the rooftop with a view of the volcanoes was a treat as was the location just a few blocks away from the main tourist streets. It... More

Rooms and halls are adorable, old colonial style, very clean and well maintained, spacious, comfortable with nice view – especially dining room and kitchenette on the rooftop, from where you can see tops of volcanoes and a cathedral. Unfortunately there is NO ONE who speaks English, not the nice lady (I guess the owner), not anyone on the reception –... More
