Stayed here a few nights in a four bed private. They refused to give us toilet roll and always said they would have some tomorrow. They never did! It was fine for our needs but we did stay elsewhere in Arequipa after our Colca Canyon tour. Paying for use of the kitchen really left a sour taste in our mouths.... More

Francisco and Sonia really are welcoming as others have said. Francisco was up at 3am with us to lock away our luggage when collected for our Colca canyon trek. They were both warm, helpful and friendly and we enjoyed a lovely evening chatting to Francisco about family life. On out last day, after check out, they kept our bags for... More

Nice view from the roof. Average hostal room and a 10 minute walk to central square. Breakfast included but was only bread and marmalade, no coffee included. The price was negitiable why we decided to stay. Helpful tips from the owner. Ok but far from perfect

When I came back there was nobody here but, as I had mistakenly taken the keys to the front door of the hostal and the room I had been staying in with me when I... More

the bed was awful... thats the only (and most important) concern in this place. The woman is not very friendly, but thats ok. The location is not great, but thats ok. The hostel Che Lagarto is only US$2 more and is way better (location, big room, clean, friendly staff)! We stayed only for one night... would not stay another.

Stayed in this hostel a few weeks ago for 2 nights. It is south from Plaza de Armas and not far at all but looks quite sketchy at night (especially if walking around alone). I stayed in the female dormitory which was good and spacious. The shared bathroom is good but didn't have hot water one night. The breakfast was... More
