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

Great address in Arequipa. José, the owner is very helpful with advice on what to do and where to go and he really enjoys talking and meeting travellers. The hotel is calm and very clean, excellent hot water which is quite rare. The only thing I would improve would be the kitchen organization to facilitate making one's own meals. Thank... More

We arrived super early in the morning, but they would welcome us very warmly, give us a room to sleep for the rest of the night (without extra charge) and helped us to find a good rafting tour provider. Recommended!

I chose this one for one day stay following Tripadvisor, and was not sorry. I arrived in the morning, put my bags, and left for Catalina, and then Toro Muerto. The girl at the reception was very helpful, explained how to get to all places, what the prices for taxis and buses are. The room was good, hot shower in.... More

By the time I stayed at this hostel, I was half way through my Peru itinerary and had stayed in several other hostels by then. This hostel had the cleanest bathroom of all the ones I've stayed at. The rooms were clean and there was hot water - not much more you can ask for given the great price! What... More

Jose is the nicest person I have ever met travelling. He will always ask if the hot water, and wifi is fine. He will also attend to any queries questions and can arrange anything rom taxis to tours. The rooms are warm, the terrace and its views are gorgeous, the shower is big, and its in a great location.

Even when I was sick, José took care of me and made tea. The room was clean, the shower was hot, the hostel is quiet and... More

This is our second stay here on our trip and Jose the owner remembered us from last time and is so chatty and friendly and helpful that you can't help but love him. The rooms are very clean and have private bathrooms, there is a kitchen and roof terrace. Definite recommendation!
