This hostel has all you need to have a great time in Arequipa. We booked our trip to the Colca Canyon in the hostal, and the staff has nice ideas of how to spend your time in the city as well. The location is also excellent!

Felt like a paycheck here. The bathroom situation is scarce with one shower or an entire floor. You have to pay for a towel. No a fan that I have to press a button for entry or exit every time. Staff is stand offish and only recommends the most touristy places. A towel costs $3.

Nice hostel, decent breakfast included with yoghurt and fresh fruit options, and decent bread buns with options of meat/cheese/veggies/jelly. Double room was clean and spacious. The lady of the reception arranged a lot of tours for us, even the Nasca flight. She was very nice and helpful. The hostel is a little outside the city center (15 min walk), but... More
