3 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago NEW via mobile

The rooms here smell a little so be sure to bring air fresheners. The water gets decently hot and it's located on a quiet street which is the upside. You won't encounter too much noise while you're sleeping. The workers here are cool but nothing extraordinary.

This place is old, the room was worn out and not clean (heavy stains on the floor, on the ceiling, the walls has holes covered with tapes). The breakfast is minimal with no fruit, no real coffee, no choice. In addition this place is very noisy and you can hear everything which is going on in the neighbourhood. Not a... More

Very good value and location for this budget range. Very friendly people. No problem to leave luggage here to go hike colca canyon. Nice bathroom, good bed. It was quiet until 7 am when some dogs were playing on the roof of the neighboring building, but this didnt disturb me much.

Positioned a short walk from the pedestrian precinct and the centre of the town this is a very convenient place to be based to enjoy Arequipa. The hostel is a good standard for a hostel and is very good value for money. Breakfast includes cereal, yoghurt and juice as well as the ubiquitous white bread and strawberry jam, I just... More

This is a budget hotel. It's a little worn in places. However, the staff are great, particularly the guy on the desk in the mornings. The rooms are relatively quite. The WiFI works fine. The location is a few blocks from most restaurants (look on trip) but we were happy to walk back to the hotel. The streets are well... More

We arrived at 8am and our room was ready! After the night bus this was the best news! Our room was basic but clean as was the bathroom. The best part was the view of El Misti volcano! It is close to the centre of Arequipa and the staff were helpful and friendly! Good choice for those on a budget!
