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

This is a basic hostel, cheap rates for a room with a family environment. Hot water, basic breakfast, located in the center of the Arequipa city in a colonial family house. Mirs. Barbara is a really nice person who will be waiting for you to make you feel as a family member. If you want to stay in Arequipa and... 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

Three of us stayed for three nights and we couldn't be more delighted. Mrs Barbara, who runs the place is just about the most precious human being we encountered on that continent. Always smiling, ever accommodating, helpful and sweet. The rooms were big and spacious, and everything was very clean. This hotel had an awesome rooftop, and we spent a... More

We found this guesthouse just at the corner of Jurusalen and Puente Grau. It was the low season so we got our room for S.40 without having to bargain. Our room was very big (it had one double bed and 2 singles) although we only paid for a double. The room and attached private bathroom were both very clean and... More
