Housed in a well-cared for colonical building in the heart of Arequipa, Posada del Parque, or Pirwa Park Hostel, is a family-run establishment. The rooms are large, high-ceilinged and comfortable. The common areas are attractive and comfortable, and very clean. The roof-top terrace has several seating areas both covered and uncovered with spectacular views of the surrounding volcanos. The hostel is located three blocks from Plaza de Armas and one block from the municipal market. The surrounding streets are bustling, but inside the atmosphere is peaceful. The hostel is very secure with 24 hour staffing and the streets are well patrolled day and night. We were welcome to do some hand washing and hang it on the terrace, as well as use the communal kitchen. The little tour agency located on the terrace was extremely helpful in making personized suggestions for further travel.
