The staff is very friendly and helpful, the hostel is conveniently located a reasonable walking distance from the downtown/centro area (i.e. tasty restaurants and bars), and the rooms are very spacious and clean, equipped with AC and hot showers in the bathrooms (a big deal if you are a Peace Corps volunteer). I've only stayed at Arandu a few times... More

Great Hostal to stay at for a short or long period of time. Within walking distance of the centro or Asuncion. Also great clean kitchen and outdoor seating area during the summer months. Also spacious inside to hang out, watch TV and relax. My favorite Hostal in Asuncion.

I have stayed at Arandu several times over the past 3 years. Once I discovered it, I never went back! It is close to downtown, right off bus lines, and the conditions are the best in comparison to the other hostels in the city. The staff is also super helpful! 100% recommend you stay here!

I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Paraguay for 2 years, and anytime I came to Asuncion I would stay at Arandu. Arandu is by far the cleanest hostel in Asuncion, and the staff are all incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms are big, don't have too many beds (Some have 4 beds, the others have 6) in them, and... More

I have been traveling in Latin America for the past 26 months and, frankly speaking, this was one of the best places I have ever stayed on this trip. The people here were simply awesome. Especially the owner, Maria! She was extremely kind and helpful. Thanks to her and her staff, I felt like staying in my own place. The... More

The whole hostel is really well kept, has great facilities and is thoroughly cleaned every day. There are great outside seating areas and a good kitchen. The wifi and computer worked... More

I am a single American woman, and stayed at Arandu for one month, and it really became another home to me. Maria, the owner, is warm, professional, efficient, and thoughtful. I searched all over Asuncion and the surrounding suburbs to find a clean, interesting, and affordable place to stay, and Arandu fit every mark. Very close to downtown shops, theaters,... More
