Stayed for five days in total before and after the colca canyon. A wonderful hostel with nice rooms, clean spacious bathrooms, comfy beds, great location, good wife and amazing staff, so friendly and full of recommendations. My friend was sick during our stay, and Jose the host was incredibly nice, checking in on her and bringing her endless coca tea... More

We arrived in the early morning because of our bus trip. Like others too. The host was chaotic and the staff is not that friendly. We stayed before and after our trip to the Colca Canyon. For our thirst night we changed over the street in a hospedaje which was far more better for the same prive! I wish we... More

Of course the price is cheep and you will have for what you paid. Personal is sympathique but ... not enough hot water for everybody, very bad wifi, rooms and équipements are very old. Beds where horrible, unconfortable and dirty (whe had 2 different rooms, the same). Windows gives on the inside. No air. The street is high (more than... More

The manager seems to have the organisational skills of a fish. Totally haphazard and unprofessional, although friendly on the surface: after coming back from Colca Canyon late, and tired, he casually told us that the room we booked had been given to someone else! Avoid.

Despite the sketchy showers and the non sound proof room (typical in SA) we enjoyed our stay. Jose is very helpful. Internet works pretty well. Nice terrace too. Location is great. Would definitely stay here again

You cannot trust la Posada del Kuraka. We stayed there 2 nights before going to the canyon de Colca. we left them our bags and booked a room for our return. However they did not keep the room we had booked which is inexcusable, especially because it was on a public holiday so all the hostels were full in Arequipa.... More

I think Jose the owner must be the nicest guy we met in the whole of Peru! We really enjoyed staying at his place - it's fabulous value for money. In a great location, about 2-3 blocks from Plaza Armas, a block away from the street with all the bars on it and minutes walk from all the main sights... More

A really great location and very comfortable rooms. Jose, the owner, is so helpful and will go out of his way to help you in anyway possible. This included restaurant recommendations, tour operator recommendations and storage of our bags whilst we were on the Colca Canyon trek. A great option in Arequipa.

Really place to stay with an owner that works so hard for his guests. Great WiFi and hot showers. Clean rooms. Great location. Jose looked after our bags whilst we went to the canyon and was very helpful with things like arranging taxis. We were so grateful to know our bags were in safe hands. Only thing to note is... More
