We stayed at Sol de Oro for 3 1/2 weeks while we were volunteering in Arequipa and we couldn't have found a better place! The rooms are spacious and all have cable tv (ask for a room with a window). A matrimonial room costs about S/.75 incl a great breakfast - really good value for mobey in Arequipa! The hostel has a huge terrace where you can relax, a small but fully equipped kitchen, a tv and games room, and apart from pool and foosball tables they also have a proper football field!! Juliana and John who run the hostel are super nice and happy to help with whatever you need. John even took us to a typical Peruvian restaurant so we could enjoy the best Arequipenian food! Their little daughter Maria is also lovely. Sol de Oro is NOT a party hostel but if you want a quiet nice place with great facilities, this hostel is perfect!
