The hostel is located in the historic center, walking distance to everything. It has a terrace with nice views. The rooms are simple but clean, good wifi signal. The staff were friendly and very helpful, We were really thankful that they helped us with everything, but we cannot say the same of the night staff who seems to have the... More

We stayed there to save money and it was pretty nice. Hot water, good bathroom and shower, bed was a bit hard but okay and the room was quiet. The downside was only one plug in the room and there is rarely someone at reception. They have another hotel 50m away and when you want to leave or enter you... More

This was the first place we walked into when we arrived in the evening to Arequipa. It's really close to the main square, the rooms are nice and everything is clean, breakfast is included, but most of all the staff is incredibly friendly! My boyfriend got sick and they brought him coca tea, I asked dozens of questions about tours... More

We slept there 3 nights with my girlfriend. The accomodation was nice, shower with warm water and the staff very friendly and helpful. They even kept our luggages during our 4 days trip in the canyon de Colca. We recommend this place !

We stayed in a private room over looking the street, was slightly noisy but you got a great view. Our disappointment was that we had $40 USD lifted from our bags while we were out and the room was being cleaned. A poor ending to an otherwise pleasant experience.

We stayed one nright in a room with a private bathroom: the room was pretty big. Apart from the double bed, there was a bunk bed that was nog used. The mattress was pretty old, with that... More

We have just left this hostel where we rented a double room with shared bathroom. The room was nice with doors opening onto a communal seating area and catching lots of sunlight. The bed was well dressed and clean towels were provided. Good wifi here too. Each of the three 'B' rooms have doors accessing directly their shared bathroom (I... More

We booked very last minute in this little hostel, and it ended up being one of the most pleasant we have been in along our SA trip. The staff is VERY nice and helpful. The rooms are comfortable and clean, and the wifi works perfectly. The place is calm and the atmosphere is rather intimate (due to its smallness). Only... More

Very friendly staff and clean rooms with nice hot showers. If you want a private bathroom your room will be at the street side and a little noisy when you're not used to the sounds of a big city. Staff will try to help you with everything and are always nice. We left out luggage for three days and they... More
