My 14-year-old daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the Casablanca. The staff were totally wonderful--helpful at every turn (keeping our luggage, recommending a travel agency, help with the wifi). We had hot water! (this is unusual in Peru) We were in the center of town! (so if you don't like the noise, don't stay) We had a balcony on the street!... More

We stayed at Casablance for 3 nights in lovely Arequipa. I can't speak highly enough of the hostel and their staff. Our room was amazing - a large medievel style building with an excellent bathroom and hot, powerful shower. Location is excellent, breakfast is good with fresh orange juice. Kitchen facilities are great and all in all it is a... More

We really enjoyed our 3 nights at Casablanca. Lovely rooms with lots of character and great location just off the main square. The breakfast could be improved (just bread and jam) but overall a great place to stay.

This is a beautiful building in a great spot just off the lovely main plaza. Rooms are great and clean with really big spacious bathrooms. Friendly staff and secure. The roof terrace is very pretty, but only has views if you stand and try to look over other buildings. Breakfast is lacklustre, in a mezzanine area with some pretty views.... More

Happy to write that this was among our favourite places that we stayed in Peru. We had two different rooms at Casablanca, before and after our trip to the Colca Canyon. Both rooms had huge vaulted ceilings, a generous bathroom, and lots of hot water. Great friendly service at all hours. Adorable cat Pepa (who will climb up your leg... More

This hostal is just off the main plaza and in easy walking distance of all the sites in town. The rooms are large and cleaned everyday. The best bit has to be the bathroom though with a really powerful shower and lots of hot water, the best shower I've had in two months of travelling. There is also cable tv... More

They offer a service for free to leave youre bags in the hostal when walking the Calco canon for 2 or 3 days. Reliable service. They even let us stay in the restaurant area when we came... More

Loved this place. Very safe, good location, and a beautiful rooftop sitting area. The staff were very helpful in helping us when our tour group forgot us in the morning. The only drawback is it is located on a busy street so the street noises were loud at night, but that is the price you pay for a good location.

This place is worth the extra soles because of the excellent location. Literally 2 steps from the main square. The accommodation itself is very basic, just as the breakfast. The wifi is great and rooms are large. Staff friendly.

Built in volcanic syllar, this old colonial house, apparently old clergy residence, Casablanca Hostal is definitely a pearl of the White city Arequipa. Its charm is magic. As you walk in passing by the reception, you walk through a beautiful courtyard full of plant and flowers, benches and the breakfast patio. Rooms are amazing! rooooomy rooms, tall ceilings, stone interior... More
