We (a couple) were searching a private room in Arequipa and unfortunately every hostel was booked due to a congress. Our way brought us to this bed and breakfast, we asked for a room and they said 150 Sol for a night but we had to share the bathroom. We were really tired from not finding a nice and not... More

The hosts are really friendly, and the hostal has a great location 30 seconds from the plaza de armas. Though it is very close to the populated street, the hostal is inside of the road so it was not noisy at all. We really enjoyed the hostal and also family-like atmosphere in there. Strongly recommend you. 매우 추천 합니다.

After a long ride from the Colca Canon to Arequipa we arrived at this hostal and the booking was missing (although done by a travel agency weeks in advance). The staff was passing us on to their "sister hostel" La Compania in Calle Jerusalen. Here we got a nicely furnished room with neat and clean bathroom. Unfortuantely the environment is... More

When we returned at 5pm we just wanted to shower in the communal shower and were told 15 soles per person plus 3 per person if we wanted towels and 25 if we wanted to... More

We stayed at La Compania as a group of 6 friends in three separate rooms. The location is just amazing...just a minute to walk to the Plaza de Armas. Our favourite thing about La Compania was the great open patio where we spent hours eating and relaxing. Breakfast was great, rooms were clean and very spacious, staff were awesome and... More

This is a basic but excellent hostal 10m from the Plaza de Armas in Arquipa. I got a large room with abundant hot water in my shower. Breakfast was good but basic. The service was excellent, the staff was very friendly and really made an effort to answer my varied questions about the city, tours, etc...Location is great, literally 10m... More

10 seconds walk to the main squares, it's amazingly convenient! The place is clean and tidy and have the roof top balcony where you can sit there and relax. Room is clean and tidy with good hot shower. No hair dryer and I think the scent in the room was too strong (they probably did spray some air fresher or... More

I stayed at La Compania hostel twice while visiting Arequipa. It is by far the best hostel in Peru. The rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated. The towels and bedsheets are white and spotless. The atmosphere is peaceful and sophisticated. The service, breakfast, any assistance is superb. The manager and stuff are very friendly, helpful and they all speak English.... More

We stayed at la Compania in mid October for about 5 days. We stayed in room #4 the suite, a beautiful room at first glance. Midday I saw a cluster of cockroaches near the balcony door, they scurried down a hole in the floor. At night, the parade began, some scattering as I walked through the room, one on top... More
