La Posada del Kurkaka is budget lodging. You may not find fancy accommodations here, but you will find great value, great location, and above all, a wonderful host. Jose is a super ambassador for Arequipa, a really lovely city. He is committed to the guest experience and will help you with anything you need in the city. We only stayed for one night before our flight home, but we definitely enjoyed our stay. We slept well, enjoyed the hot shower and the rooftop terrace, and all the recommendations Jose provided. A nice find!

The hostel is close to the city center and lots of tourist attractions. It is safe and clean and offers comfy beds for a great price. The owner is a great source of helpful advice and takes interest in his guests. Highly recommendable!

Top hostel in Peru. Clean rooms, hot showers, great terrace on the roof and owner Jose who helped us with everything. He also recommended great company for our tour. We felt like at home and next time we will come back!

The owner, Jose, is absolutely wonderful! He will do anything he can to help out his guests with questions, locking up bags, and recommendations. The rooms are very clean, the hostel is quiet, and the showers are HOT. Perfect stay on a budget. I would go there again if just for Jose.

We found the hostel related to this one in the lonely planet book, and when we arrived there it was booked. The owner (Father of Jose, owner of kuraka) pointed us to his other hostel, and explained that we'd probably like it better there anyway because everything is new. Jose (the owner) is awesome! Super friendly, and he goes out of his way to help you with whatever you need. He told us great places to eat and to go out, and called us cabs when needed. Clean beds, warm, TV, hot water. He even let us test the hot water before we committed to staying and turned on the gas to be sure there was hot water in the morning. Clean bathrooms and showers, everything does look new. Comfy bed, but a few of my friends had not so comfy beds. Only stayed one night so no input on the kitchen. About 3 mins walk from calle san francisco and maybe 5 mins from the plaza.
