Good place to stay if you want to walk the culca cannon as they will keep your bags whist on trek, or look around the city. It was quiet but its a good clean hostel and the staff are very good and friendly.

This place is on a very good location. Close to the main square. Tons of restaurants around. The actual hostel is very roomy with plenty of spot to hang around and meet other people. The staff are friendly and helpful. The kitchen though has limited access but can always ask to use if needed. Love the view form the rooftop.... More

Good, clean dorms. Perfect location. Excellent service. The personnel even went to the market to repare the zipper of my backpack. They were 24/7 ready to help the customers and to feel comfortable. I can surely recommend it

Awful experience. Upon arrival at the hostel staff was unfriendly and rude. Patty, the manager after the first payment made did not give to me any receipt, the same thing happened for the second payment made one day after. The day of my departure, she demanded me to pay the 2 nights already payed. She have treated me as a... More

This hostel is in a great location, a couple of blocks from the main square. Staff were helpful and sorted our Colca Canyon tour. They were also kind to me when I was ill. Breakfast was included and it was nice to have a TV at the bar. When we were there it had a good atmosphere. There was a... More

The Point hostal in Arequipa is a nice place to stay! Perfect location close to Plaza de Armas, hot shower, clean rooms, comfortable bed. I tried The Pint in Cusco too but that was horrible. I recommend to stay in The Point in Arequipa :)

Very nice staff and Hostel. The rooms are okay but the roofterase is gold ! Has a nice bar and billard too. Near the Plaza de armas (2 Blocks). Only thing that you have to pay 5 Soles everytime you want to use the kitchen. I spend two weeks there and had a great time.

Although the place has potential; good location and okay layout! I did not enjoy my stay here first and formostly due to the rude and uncareing staff.

We quite liked this hostel - sadly not a lot of people, but a decent common area and outside hammocks to read in. The dorm was really big, so you can't be a light sleeper. Also there could have been more toilets for this many people. Not a very social place, but definitely tranquil and chill.
