The hotel is OK but not great. The positives are the location just a few blocks from the main mall and town square, the rooms are reasonable size, the breakfast on their rooftop is nice, the rooftop itself is a nice place to chill out and the staff are friendly and most have some English. The negatives are the floors... More

The hostel is cozy with comfy beds and hot water in the shower. The bathrooms are a bit tiny, but for the price this is a very comfortable hostel. There is a balcony on the roof with plenty of chairs and tables to enjoy the sunset. The only reason why I gave them 4 circles is because the communication between... More

First the good points: 1.- The breakfast is amazing and it's served in the thrid floor, it has bread, juices, jam, butter, fruits, coffee, milk, egg, avocado, etc. 2.- The rooms are pretty nice for a B&b hostel, Tv, average quality of bed, closet, 4 electric outlets. 3.- The bathroom has hot water. 4.- The personal are average, good turist...

Nice roof terrace with space to sunbathe when the weather is nice. Small but delicious breakfast served up here - boiled eggs, avocado, bread, jam, coffee - no choice, but even so it was one of the nicer breakfasts we've had. Wifi patchy and the rooms are a bit mixed, but most seem to be lovely and the place had... More

We only stayed at this hostel for one night, in a private room, but in the short time we were there, we were able to do everything we needed to, walking, in Arequipa, so it was in a great downtown location. The night we were there, we decided to stay in, buy food and have some drinks on the hostel... More

The location: Is within walking distance of the main plaze de armas. It doesn't appear to be in a bad neighborhood but it isn't absolutely beautiful to look at. Breakfast: Umm, awesome... eggs, pan with marmalade, fruit, juice and tea and coffee... Staff: friendly but not overly so. Not rude. Wifi: meh, it's not fantastic but it's not horrible... you...

10' walking from the Plaza. The room was big but we found some hairs in the shower and in the basin.. Our room (maybe 101) was located at the corner of the two streets and it was very noisy,especially during the night. However,the breakfast was very good and abundant. The terrace on the roof in excellent.

The hostel is a really good option for its price. Is just five blocks from the main plaza where you can also find all the facilities you need. The personal is helpful at any moment you need them and they don't charge you for anything extra. The Internet connection is good. And rooms are superb for the price.

Ive stayed at the pirwa in Cusco and Lima before, so I thought it was a safe choice for Arequipa. Unfortunately, this pirwa hostel is operated rather differently. Managed by an older gentlemen rather than the young crew I'm used to, several things were off. First, they won't serve you any breakfast until 8.30. Second, there is a single lockable... More
