We stayed here on three occasions. The first time for four nights, the second time for two nights and the third time for two nights. On the first two occasions the manager was helpful, interested in us and was a great host. As soon as we paid on the third stay he changed and ignored us, he had got the... More

The hostel is in a quaint little square about five blocks from the main plaza. Pancakes were the better option for breakfast - much more appetizing than the scrambled eggs. Staff spoke good English and helped us navigate the city. The hostel had one of the fastest wifi connections we came across while traveling through South America. It sounded like... More

I would return to this hostel. We arrived early in the morning and found reception staff to be friendly, helpful and with good English skills and a smile :) We booked a private double room (not that much more expensive than a dorm room) with shared bathroom. Facilities were simple, but clean, and everything you need. Luke-warm shower was unfortunate.... More

The hostel doesn't quite live up to its name, but it is very good and worth a stay if you are in Arequipa. There seem to be a few party hostels in this city; this is not one of them, so if you're looking for a party, I wouldn't suggest you stay here. We stayed two nights - before and... More

My partner and I stayed 2 nights here before and after trekking. Overall the hostel is comfortable with clean rooms, comfortable beds and good showers. Staff were friendly, the breakfast was awesome and it was great having a fully equipped kitchen. The only drawback is that it lacks a bit of atmosphere as a 'backpackers' hostel. This suited us fine... More

An absolute little gem. I'm so pleased I stayed here rather than roughing it with some of the gap year muppets at Wild Rover! I stayed slightly out of season so the hostel was quiet when I was there, however aside from the slight lack of social interaction I certainly could not fault anything about the place. The location is... More

The banana pancakes with caramel sauce were SUCH a nice change from the typical light breakfasts in Peru. The public spaces (a tv room, terrace with tables and chairs and a ping pong table) are all lovely- the terrace in particular with flowering vines all around it. The location was a 5-7 minute walk from the main square but in... More

This hostel is situated on a lovely square that has some historical relevance and it is nice if you have a room that looks out onto the square, albeit a little noisy at night. The rooms are clean and large with bathrooms that are ok, there was hot water when we were there. They have a pool table and a... More
