We stayed at the Park Hostel in Nov. 2015. It is in a very good location, close to historical sights and museums. The hostel is very quiet and well run. They have a great breakfast outside on the top floor. The manager and staff helped us with booking bus reservations to Nazca. They allowed us to stay in the lounge... More

We stayed here and found that this hostel didn't live up to what we had hoped. The location is outside of central Arequipa and we were advised by our taxi driver to be extremely careful in the area that the hostel was in. The staff here did not seem very interested in their guests and spoke very little English. We... More

We loved this hostel! It felt more like a hotel with large airy rooms, great communal spaces and a fantastic roof terrace. We booked room 201 which had 3 beds (one of which was taken to another room on our second day... no problem) and a private bathroom with hot water. The room was spacious and comfy with amazing feather... More

The personal was very helpful booking bus tickets or getting a cheap cab to the bus terminal. The breakfast was excellent and the view from the rooftop was nice. We were allowed to store our backpacks for several days there during a trip to the colca Canyon. Having a shower before taking the nightbus was also no problem

Stayed here for 5 nights and really enjoyed it, part of the reason we enjoyed it so much was because it was alot nicer than our usual hostel choices. We had a great room with really comfy beds and even a feather bed comforter! Our room had the corner balcony which was at times fun to open out and look... More

A potentially great hostel with a good location and great roof top terrace, but unfortunately there seem to be some major management problems that make this a very unreliable place. On our first visit and travelling as a group of six, ie. family of four plus another couple, we found that they had our bookings totally confused. This caused us... More

Pros: - Good location next to Plaza de Armas - Charming place - Good breakfast at the terrace - Clean room and toilets - Very good value quality / cost - Hot water Cons: - Not much, I would only say that the bathroom included in our room could be a little bit bigger

Here is the best hostel you can stay, great location, near to the city center, close to many sights, restaurants and shops. You meet cool people, cozy little areas to chill out in, privacy if you prefer!!! Comfortable beds, clean and sunny bedrooms. Friendly host and very good service for tickets to greats tours, highly recommend purchasing them here.

This hostel is located 3 blocks from plaza de armas and is quiet, continental breakfast and a nice roof terras on wich they serve breakfast with an overlook of the town and the vulcanos. Owner is friendly and trying to help where he can. At the moment they are working hard on renewing one of the bathrooms.

I stayed at this hostel for almost a week in March of 2014. In 9 months of backpacking all over the continent I found this to be one of the best hostels I stayed in. It has a great patio and breakfast is included (a good breakfast too!). The owner, Cesar, is a wealth of knowledge in terms of what... More
