Upon arrival we were promised two 2-bedroom rooms, one on third floor, one on ground floor. The room on the ground floor was being cleaned, thus we couldn't go in yet. No problem as we got in early. However, coming back later at night, the room on the ground floor we got was different to the one described. It was...

We checked in way earlier than actually planned. The staff was really nice, the room clean and comfortable. The price for that was more than ok. The city centre is also close to reach by foot. Many restaurants are nearby. Would recommend it at any time.

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...

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...

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...
