This is an excellent travelers' hotel, near the main square. Its rooms were nice with firm beds, hot shower, TV, etc. Pricing was reasonable for the quality of the hostel according to prevailing rates in Arequipa at this time. The place had a very charming atmosphere, with a common area for meeting other travelers on the second floor and a picturesque eating area upstairs. Its Internet was very fast. The hosts spoke adequate English and were knowledgeable about tourist sites and restaurants. The breakfast was very simple, only pastry coffee and juice, so somebody might downgrade the hotel to a four-star because of this. If somebody feels a hotel needs a pool and a hairdryer for a five-star rating, then this would only rate three or four stars. I had to get up at 2:30 for an early tour, and the staff was right on the button waking me up at the right time.
