We only stayed one night en route to Chile. Beatrice could not have been more helpful in sorting out bus tickets so we could spend all our time exploring. Location very close to main square and surprisingly quiet for such a central location. Rooms clean and shower hot.

Not much good to say besides the location. Water was mildly hot (actually good for Peru), the rooms were chilly/noisy. Lacked the atmosphere of other hostels, probably due to small common areas. The computer in the common office is practically unusable (and we needed it for booking tickets to Machu Picchu).

Really can't say enough good things here. Beautiful hostel, super clean and safe, great rooms, adequate amount of toilets and showers, comfortable beds, wifi, communal areas and kitchen. Super friendly staff. The perfect downtown location. Nice balcony, perfect distance from the plaza de armas. On and on and on... highly recommended.

My partner and I stayed here for 4 nights total, 2 nights before going to Cabanaconde and 2 nights when getting back. This was one of the cheapest places we stayed at in Peru, s/. 50-55 per night. The first 2 nights we stayed we were in a dorm room, but thought we had reserved a double room. The common... More

I'm not really sure how this hotel stands as I am pretty sure it has been constructed entirely of chipboard. The hostel is well located, but not too busy or loud at night. It is also pretty clean (slightly grimy floors) and the owners are friendly enough. Breakfast isn't great, just some warm rolls and jam...sucks if you're gluten intolerant... More

My name is Beatriz Suárez, I am owner of Misti House, I write this response because not understand how the material that is constructed part of our hostel can doubt "how it stands".

Nice hostal with good value rooms and okay breakfast that you can take on the roof terrace. Staff are friendly and happy to give advice. Excellent English is spoken. Wifi signal good and hot water in showers. Would happily recommend this hostal.

When you stay here, you do so for the location. You are right where you want to be in Arequipa. Beyond that, do not expect miracles. They where kind to us and gave us a six bed room for our family of four. The bunk beds where hard but clean. The kitchen is minuscule but serviceable. You can make basic... More

Nothing really special, but a good location, friendly staff and cheap makes it ok. Internet has good moments, sometimes really quick! Breakfast was just Peruvian, so only bread with jam and a banana, but you sit at a relaxed roofterrace, almost the whole day sun! Don't expect too much from the rooms.

This is a typical backpacker’s hostel with younger clientele, however we were a family of four and enjoyed it very much. The rooms are cheap and clean and we had no problems with hot water. You have a very small (really, very small) kitchen that you can use and wifi everywhere until 11pm. They also have a nice terrace where... More

After reading the reviews, we had expected a little more for the money - kind of like the photos Pros - clean, safe, friendly staff,comfortable mattress, comfortable pillows Cons - for $24/noc for 2 - we expected more than a chipboard box of a room, floors that caved under our feet (chipboard), a little charm, paper thin walls and floors...
