Le Foyer Hostel Arequipa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 20, 2012

Basic 2Star with extra friendly service. The staff was kind enough to recognize that the single room that had for me was too close to their noisy bar, so without asking, they gave me a 3 bed room for more quiet. The open air courtyard makes for a nice dynamic, breakfast served on the outside balcony was basic but romantic.

A lot of noice at night from the bar downstairs, in the morning lot of traffic. Poor english speaking staf. Nice hot shower but not really clean. Breakfast is o.k. Beds are nice and clean rooms. No lockers or swimmingpool as some websites suggest.

This hostel is in a great location and has brilliant facilities (including a new sofa/bean bag area with 50" TV and computer with internet). The rooms are spacious, some with balconies, although being in the 'bar/clubby' end of town it can be quite noisy at night. Other than that, the beds were comfy, average breakfast (bread+jam+juice+hot drink). Good for couples, and occasionally offered free drinks vouchers to encourage socialising within the hostel

Very nice breakfast served on a sunny balkony, but rooms are just average, not very clean, bathrooms are cleaned to less. Under the hostel is a night club - on weekend days it´s impossible to sleep - even with ear plugs it´s like sleeping in a disco! Staff is very nice.

I stayed there 2 nights in January 2012. The location is great, near la Plaza de Armas in an area where you can find many restaurants. I payed 45 soles (breakfast included) per night for a private room with a double bed and an en-suite bathroom. The room was simple but comfortable, quite large for one person. But it could have been cleaner. The bathroom looked quite new, but is still on the small side. The hostal also provide a TV with many channels, but it was always blurry.
The room itself was good but there is a communicating restaurant and a bar downstairs. It's great if you want to grab a bite or have a drink, but good luck if you are trying to sleep. Some of the rooms (the one I was in too) are situated around a gallery from which we can see half of the restaurant above. So we can hear everything. I had to sleep with earplugs.
The breakfast was good. They offer the typical bread + jam and butter + tea combo with a great mango nectar. It is served on the balcony in front of the hotel, a nice spot to have breakfast. However, I left the hotel due to the noise. I would have stayed if it had been quieter because the amenities were convenient.

Room Tip: Pick a room away from the gallery.

I had an amazing time in this hostel everytime I was in Arequipa. I have just spended 7 months in Peru and have therefore seen a lot of hostels, hotels, other kinds of accomodations. I might say that "Le Foyer" is way the best I have ever experienced. Go there if you want a budget hostal with amazing service. You will never find any recepcionists that cares that much for you, as they do in "Le Foyer"...- they know the city, they know the great restaurants, they are able to help you organize tours, buy bus tickets etc etc. The hostel has a huge balcony from where you have a great view of the city and the mountains..- nothing in Arequipa beats the sunrise from this balcony..

To sum up..- go there if you´re looking for a centrally located hostal with really reasonable prices and fantastic service..- My best recommodations..
