This great hostal is located near the Plaza de arma and offers a superb open courtyard. The rooms are clean and the beds are surprisingly (because we've slept in other hostal before arriving to Arequipa) very confortable. There is an amazing room view of the mountains surrounding Arequipa. The owner is so welcoming and helpful. They are very accommodating which... More

The Scandinavia House sent us an email promising us a room in a near hotel since they were overbooked. We arrived at a "House" being painted, not a Hostal facility. The manager brought... More

Only a couple of blocks from the Plaza. Our first time at a hostal and would stay again. This is a very laid back place so it's great if you are too. Owners were helpful with restaurant recommendations and shopping tips. We lived meeting new people a d getting to know the kids.

On our first day we arrived at the hostel and stood outside ringing the bell for 20 minutes.... no answer. We walked around the town for a bit with our rucksacks and went back an hour later and managed to get in this time. We were hoping to meet other travellers but for the 3 nights we stayed we were...

This hotel is very quiet and friendly. You can rest very well in their confortable rooms and staff is ready to attend you in all your necessities. The best part is his location, three blocks from the main park. Highly recomended...

Our first impression was that the place needed some TLC. Our room had a ceiling that was badly peeling and the bed mattress was rather lumpy. But the room was large and clean and there was plenty of hot water. The downside was the lack of plugs in the room. You can either watch tv, or charge your phone, but... More

Around last Christmas my friend and me spent five days and nights in this hostal and it was amazing... We felt like home. Jessy, Joshelm and Luis are very warm and welcoming people. We made barbeques on the wonderful roofterrace, and had very interesting and inspiring conversations. They made us feel like home and we were so sad to leave.... More
