Cleanest hostel I have stayed in a long time! They clean the bathrooms hourly (starting at 10am I think?) and provide bread and tea all day long. Laundry line on the roof and full kitchen which is also cleaned regularly in case your fellow travelers forget to clean up. They have hot showers and lots of activity rooms (pool table, ping pong, hammocks, tv room) and 3 computers for internet access. Warm clean dorm rooms, excellent place.
TIP: But they have these promo cards all over Lima and Cusco that have the wrong address on them. I spent 3x the regular price of a cab driving all over the city looking for an address that does not exist, finally when we got near the neighborhood, 7 people we asked had never heard of the street. Be sure to get directions from the hostel when you book, otherwise you might have the same problem as me (I see TripAdvisor also has a different address listed, which is not the street address).

So please do not believe the taxi drivers when they try to persuade you not to come to arequipay backpackers properties taking you to other property, they always lie because those hostales pay the taxis commission and for sure you will not find a better property like arequipay, our comments are our best guarantee!
