We had a room with three beds and an attached bath for 60 soles per night which we thought was a good value. The shared bath in the hallway looked quite gross. There is a very small kitchen and roof top padio with a table. The man who owns the hostel is very nice, but he smokes inside all day... More

We stayed one night there on arriving in Arequipa and left the next morning. OK for backpackers on a very tight budget but not for us. Not that clean and quite noisy. Nice owner but he does not have the funds to improve the place.

We stayed here for one night, the room itself was comfortable and basic, hot water was there, and good value for the cheap price. My guidebook had said breakfast was included but it wasn't - no big deal though. The service was great, we booked through the hostel for a Colca Canyon tour which was excellent and left our stuff...

i stayed at another hostel farther out for my first night and switched here based on the advice of some other travelers. posada de cacique is just a few blocks away from the city center, and the owner is extremely helpful. the hostel is busy with lots of other travelers, but fairly quiet, with a great rooftop patio. the building...

Be careful about the address, it's located on Jerusalen, but used to be on Puente Grau, so make sure you go to the right location. The staff are very helpful and friendly - loved practicing speaking spanish with us, booked us a tour to Colca Canyon, and bought us bus tickets for the next leg of our trip. The door... More

I stayed here for 2 nights before going on a trip to Colca Canyon. Good value, nice hot shower, comfortable beds, quite spacious dorm and good central location. There was also free internet - the sign said half an hour per guest per day, but in practice you could use it as much as you wanted and there was never... More

We found this place by accident as our preferred option was full and they recommended it to us. We ended up staying 5 days! This is a small hostel run by a very friendly family. Jose runs the place and bends over backwards to help his guests whenever possible. (e.g. finding us a farmacy when we were ill, getting us... More
