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

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...

I stayed here for a few days and really had a good time. The staff here (e.g. Yasel) was really nice and helpful. The kitchen is small but you don't have to pay to use it. The baños is clean and the hot water is nice. It's also very quiet at night, so I am able to get very good... More

A friend recommended I stay at Misti House when he found out I was traveling through Arequipa. I am very happy I took his advice. The hostel is right next to the main square with a great view of the gigantic volcanoes surrounding the city. The accommodation is very nice and makes for a great way to meet other travelers....

Nice and simple, hot water can be scarce at peak times. Clean and cheap, very close to main square. Has wifi for free, could use some shelfs/wardrobes in the rooms. Floor is shaky a bit, but definitely not scary. Good value

Great place. Very close to the main plaza. The staff is very friendly. The rooms are cheap - starting from 15 soles for the dorms.
