Granted the Internet is not so realiable, however, the rooms are clean and airy, the staff is wonderful and the beds are soooooo comfortable. It's possible that staying in this place made us choose to stay an extra night in Arequipa. Breakfast on the roof is fabulous!

Have breakfast with a view of the volcanos! The staff goes well beyond their duties to create a genuinely welcoming atmosphere, and were particularly helpful in arranging our tour to colca canyon. Room was spacious and cleaned with fine detail.

Went there with my girlfriend for 1 night. Very clean and comfortable hotel. Price was 40USD including breakfast. Wi-fi worked, shower was hot and staff was very helpful. We booked the 3day canyon del colca trip with them and got a good guide and organization of everything. Would go there again.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here... Stayed 5 nights over two trips through Arequipa in Oct 2014. The staff are so friendly, smiley and helpful. The rooms are big, sunny and quiet. Breakfast is good and served on a lovely sunny terrace that I spent many hours on organising the next part of my trip. Great location... Close to Zig Zag... More

This hostel is located just a few blocks from the main square in the old city. It has a lovely rooftop view, the rooms are large and spacious, some with 3 beds. The bathroom has a large shower and toilet. There is free wifi and a little central courtyard near reception. It's nice, clean and well located.

Apologies for the delayed review -- I forgot to post this one after my trip -- but this place is absolutely worth posting about even months later! I stayed here in May 2013 with my best friend while on a trip around Peru. This hotel is an ABSOLUTE GEM -- incredible service, great location, a rooftop patio with a view,... More

My wife and I stayed at this place while in arequipa. It is a very quaint and charming spot. The service was incredible and our room was clean. The whole place had a nice vibe and was only a short walk to the plaza d'armes. I would definitely stay here again.

I travel extensively several times a year to Peru and all of Latin America most of which is business. Been doing this for 20 years. I find these small Hotels/Hostels are much better than the big box name-brand hotels. Many of the name brand hotels have excellent lobbies but the rooms are lacking and not always as clean as they...

We stayed there for 3 nights. The location is quite central (5-7 minutes to the plaza de armas) and despite the busy front street rather quiet if no late night parties are going on, as it was twice during our stay... (Unfortunately when we wanted to get rid of our sleeping deficit from our journey to peru) apart from that... More

This place is conveniently located near the Plaza de Armas (& also near a chocolate shop on Jerusalen St). Friendly staff, efficient laundry service (12 sols/kg) & a nice breakfast on the terrace with fantastic views. This accomodation was prebooked as part of a tour & is definitely the best place I've stayed at so far. Recommended!
