I spent two nights at La Reyna, and you definitely get what you pay for. Not the lap of luxury for sure - the building is a bit dilapidated and in need of a fresh coat or two of paint, the beds are a bit saggy in the middle, and the hot water in the bathrooms seems to only be... More

I did like a couple things about this place-- the general vibe was great, lots of similar friendly travellers, not a huge amount of partying, easy location, awesome roof views (esp over Santa Catalina Convent), even the doorbell is pleasant. As other commenters have mentioned, earplugs will help as it does get noisy at night from the discos one block... More

This hostel was alright, the views upstairs were excellent, the breakfast was good, it was the service that was not great. The male service people at the front were quite helpful, however their English was limited (fair enough we were in Peru!), but I found the female workers to be a bit, almost rude, when we needed something. They were... More

Great location... Everything you need is walking distance. Rooms are very small unless you pay for the one really big room they have on the roof with its own bathroom. The other rooms share a bathroom per floor. People leave things at desk because they are not secure in room so every time u leave u have to haul your... More

I am a Peace Corps volunteer in the Colca Canyon. I have lived in the Colca for a year and a half working with tourism and small business development and I usually make trips to Arequipa city about twice a month. My girlfriend and I had heard about an amazing room that overlooks the monastery from other Peace Corps volunteers.... More

This is such a great value for money hostel, that I have to share this with other budget travellers. We first stayed in another hostel which was more expensive and way less service. We did not even got towels there. Here the rooms are spacious and clean. There is hot water 24 hours. Friendly and helpfull staff. Several nice roof... More

Me and my husband payed 42soles for a double room with a private bathroom. Breakfast was also included. This consisted of an egg, bread, butter and jam, and either tea or coffee. They will also bring breakfast to you on the rooftop terrace that they have. This has mountaintop and monestary views. The room was quite small and cramped, especially... More

Modest but clean rooms, AMAZING roof top views and super cheap! I had a private room and bath with a double bed and paid 22 soles per night with breakfast...that's around 6-7 bucks. The staff are friendly and Alberto, the manager, is incredibly sweet and helpful. Great location, too!

The hotel is situated in the historical center of the city, very close to Plaza de Armas, in the immediate vicinity of the old monastery (Santa Catalina I think). The hotel enchants with diversity with just a labyrinth of corridors and terraces wrapped around two courtyards. Service is very polite and helpful. Restaurant is very good. There's also a local...

My friend and I stayed at La Reyna on our return from a Colca Canyon tour. We were staying at another hotel in Arequipa before then (La Posada del Montonero). We left our luggage at La Reyna for 2 nights, with the promise that we would stay at the hotel when we got back. The receptionist didn't speak English, and... More
