“Great start to Holiday”
Reviewed November 2, 2009

We had a pretty small, basic room with our own bathroom but the lack of facilities was more than made up for by the great care & attention that we got from Jose. We liked being able to make our own tea/coffee and also liked the rooftop terrace (great view of the volcanoes). Location was excellent and Jose was very helpful with our tours. Great value for money.

The hostal is located in the beautiful old part of Arequipa. All interesting places are in a walking distance.
The place is one of these old colonial houses, so there are some details like in all old houses, but the rooms are comfortable and clean. They offer a nice roof terrace and a little kitchen where you can prepare breakfast or meals.
Don José, the administrator, is very friendly and helpful and gave us a lot of valuable tips.
Free internet access. We paid 50 SOL for a double room, private bath.

Picked up the place in LonelyPlanet Peru 2007. Big mistake !
Stayed 4 nights in 4 different rooms.
We booked by phone. The owner said that he will be waiting for us at the bus terminal with a car. That was true but once arrived at the hotel, we had to pay the driver (who was not an official taxi). The had already discussed the price with the driver and it was higher than what we could have been able to negociate).
We asked for the price with/without bathroom and he said that we will pay at the end of the stay and that breakfast was served whenever we want.
All rooms except one give to the corridor or the entrance. Walls and doors are so thin that you can hear people walking outside.
The only interesting room is the n° 25 because it is located far from the corridor and the entrance.
When we were leaving and had to pay. The owner asked us to pay for the breakfast (that the first night we understood to be included in the price of the room).
