the room looked like a wine cellar, which was quite nice. hot shower, and very well located. unfortunately, we never got our e-mails answered as we had doubts on how to get there from the bus stations.

This is a great hostel. Very good location, a few blocks from the main square. The rooms are big and bathrooms clean. Cool little rooftop with views of the snow capped mountains. The staff are helpful. Great room rates compared to other hostels in Arequia. Overall, good hostel :)

This hostel was comfortable with everything we needed for a great price. Helpful staff and great location. We had two different rooms and downstairs was definitely better with less morning light and noise plus strong wifi.

I stayed there several times and can tell you that you wont find a better place for your money! Most hostels in Arequipa charge more for a dorm than this place for a private room. About the solar showers, I never had a problem with them, I even used them at 9 pm and still had warm water! The only... More

I am a foreigner living here in Arequipa. I was staying in the hotel while my home was being renovated. My room was the single with the private bathroom very near the entrance. The room did not have windows, and I could hear every single noise from reception--however, the staff had offered me a better room, and I opted for... More

We got a twin room with shared bathroom on the first floor. The room was simple, with two beds and a desk. The floor and walls were slightly dirty with dust and hair, but not enough to be concerned by (especially for the price). The bathrooms were adequately clean each time we used them. Bedding is provided, but towels and... More

This albergue, or hostel, is centrally located 3 blocks from the Plaza de Armas. It features numerous single and double rooms. Very cheap - singles with shared bathroom for 16.50 soles (under $7). Some have televisions. Free hi-speed wifi. Rooms are clean, simple and comfortable. Relatively quiet.

Very affordable accomodation in great location in Arequipa. The staff sent useful emails prior to arrival with directions & cost of taxis etc. They speak very little english which was a bit of a challenge but with our small amount of spanish we got by & they were very friendly. There was a small communal kitchen which was great, although... More

This hotel is in a very good location, centrally located. The owner is a very friendly man who gave us tons of information about the town and the surrounding area. The room was rather basic and there isn't plenty of hot water, so hurry up as soon as you get back! Unfortunately the room didn't face the street but the... More
