The price of the hostel was very cheap, but the quality of the hostel was great. The owners of the hostel were so hospitable, and they helps us a lot (they even managed a bus ticket to Cuzco) and gave us many tips. If I came back to Arequipa I surely would stay in this hostel again. It has wifi,... More

La Posada del Kuraka is a nice and friendly place. The owner speak English and is very welcoming and helpful. The room is clean, hot water. There is a small kitchen for common use and a rooftop terras with a great vieuw. It's just 5 minutes walk to the main square. Some rooms have a nice vieuw. I really enjoyed... More

We had bad luck and our room was in the 1rst floor, really closed to the main entrance, so it was so noisy that we could not sleep! The room was dirty and really wet. The personnel is really friendly and helpful and the terrace in the roof have great views.

I must tell that staying here was a pure pleasure although my wife got sick. Jose did everything to make us feel good, beginning with honest conversation, ending at ordering the food for us. It was an unforgettable experience, thanks for everything:-)!

Everyone at the hostel was really friendly and always happy to help with whatever we needed. From arriving at 5am and being allowed to go straight to bed and check in later, to looking after our things while we were away, everything made for a really comfortable and relaxing stay. The rooms are comfy and straight forward with everything you... More

We found Jose the owner to be a very attentive and welcoming host. At every corner he would help us out with things we needed for our trip to Arequipa/Colca Canyon. It was nice to find a place that has a kitchen in Peru, even if it was quite small and had basic equipment, we were still able to cook.... More

The hostel is located in the historic center, walking distance to everything. It has a terrace with nice views of Misty and Arequipa. Jose, the owner, is very helpful and works hard to make you feel home and happy with the hostel. He is very friendly and would give you a discount if you book directly. The rooms are clean... More

We would like to thank José, the owner of the hostel, for a very pleasant stay in Arequipa. José gave us some great tips about the city, he recommended us a good tour operator for the colca canyon, and let us store our luggage for free when we were on our 3-day trek. The place itself is nice, the room... More

The kitchen is decent and there is a little market up the street... More
