We came here after reading good reviews. It's a lovely building and the rooms are nice too. Soap and towels provided which is nice. Wifi Is not great though and not available in all rooms. But it does have a kitchen and washing facilities. Over all I would recommend the place for the reasonable price

I stayed here for two weeks while studying Spanish in Arequipa. The 6-bed dorm was great value (25 soles at time of writing) with down blankets, lockers (key deposit required), WIFI throughout, 2 computers, excellent breakfast on the rooftop (with deckchairs and a gazebo). The kitchen facilities were great too and proximity to the markets means you can grab ingredients... More

We had a lovely stay in this hostel! The rooms were really nice, high ceilings and a nice bed. The shower was the best we had so far in south-America! On the roof of the hostel is a really great terrace with relaxing chairs and a good view over Arequipa and the surrounding mountains. Wifi is good throughout the entire... More

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
