The lady who owns the house is very kind and helpful. Room was basic, no soap, no room cleaning while you stay and only one roll of toilet paper. Breakfast was: one egg, tea or coffee, white bread with butter and jam. The location is AMAZING, it is right in the heart of the historic center, a walking distance of... More

Great location, clean and spacious room, hot showers and friendly and helpful staff! We arrived about 9am and was able to check in straight away which was convenient! Nice sun terrace to relax on once you've seen Arequipa! It was also nice to get eggs for breakfast!

Nice enough for the price. Room was basic, hot or warm water most of the time. Rooms not cleaned during the day. Nice breakfast of fried egg and the stable bread and jam. Staff friendly but only speak spanish. Quiet location about 5 mins walk from on plaza de armas.

This is a basic hostel with a very kind owner and good prices. Location is good, as it is in the city center (10 mins walk from plaza de armas), and the ambience too. The rooms are a bit old and I could hear EVERYTHING from the guests next door. Had almost a bad experience with the laundry service (At... More

Great place to stay! Clean and spacious rooms. Delicious breakfast, reasonable price! The kind staff helped us with all of our requests and even let us leave our bags there whilst we went off on a three day tour.

We got by accident to this hostal ( we where on our way to one of the familiars ). From the moment we step in it felt like a family atmosphere. It placed in a quiet neighborhood closed to the plaza (5min walking). There is a great kitchen which used us .We stay in the first floor room (good:wifi reception,... More

It's a slightly dilapidated colonial house but once you work your around it, you can see its charms. We were two couples and the lovely owner Barbara gave us a very good deal on the price when we unexpectedly knocked on her door at 7 am in the morning. The matrimonial room on the top has a very comfy king... More

I was very disappointed by the state of my room. Frankly, I felt I had been misled by the pictures which don't show how the hostel really is. Old-fashioned and not clean despite having clean bedsheets. The floor had not been mopped. The shower did not work properly as there was hardly water coming out. No hot water at night... More
