We had a room for 2, the room was very clean. You've got your own bathroom with hot showers (works always because of solar energy). The "manager" is super friendly and helps you to book tours, buses and give you information about prizes. He also went with us to call taxis for us, and ask for good prizes. Its a... More

I can't say enough about the owner of this hostel. He's so friendly, helpful and eager to please! Has great recommendations for restaurants, too. Clean rooms, modern bathrooms with hot water, free wifi throughout the hostel. As others have said, the view from the rooftop is hard to beat. Excellent location, very safe to walk around, near to all the... More

The hostel is in a good location in the old town and close to lots of restaurants. We had a clean and functional room. Hot shower. It has a brilliant roof terrace with views over the city and onto the nearby mountains. What really made the place was the host though. He was super helpful and welcoming. We were both... More

Located only a few minutes walking distance from the center, the hotel offers simple rooms with private bathrooms, decent hot water and good WiFi at very affordable rates. The furnishing is a bit dated but fullfils its purpose. What sets it apart is the owner who is very friendly and attentive and will go out of his way to help... More

The price of the hostel was very cheap, but the quality of the hostel was great. The owners of the hostel were so hospitable, and they helps us a lot (they even managed a bus ticket to Cuzco) and gave us many tips. If I came back to Arequipa I surely would stay in this hostel again. It has wifi,... More

We had bad luck and our room was in the 1rst floor, really closed to the main entrance, so it was so noisy that we could not sleep! The room was dirty and really wet. The personnel is really friendly and helpful and the terrace in the roof have great views.

I must tell that staying here was a pure pleasure although my wife got sick. Jose did everything to make us feel good, beginning with honest conversation, ending at ordering the food for us. It was an unforgettable experience, thanks for everything:-)!

Everyone at the hostel was really friendly and always happy to help with whatever we needed. From arriving at 5am and being allowed to go straight to bed and check in later, to looking after our things while we were away, everything made for a really comfortable and relaxing stay. The rooms are comfy and straight forward with everything you... More
