I didn't have a reservation and this hostal was well recommended in my guidebook (Footprint) - I was given a tripple room despite travelling alone (I did get a bit of a reduction in the rate) but it was lovely to have the extra space. I really enjoyed my stay and should have stayed longer.
I had room 5 which I believe can form part of the family suite with room 4. The room was a good size if there are 3 of you in there. The balcony was a great feature, I took the chair from the room out there and spent hours people watching! I could see the Plaza de Armas so location wise it was spot on. It was a little noisy at night with car horns but I still was able to sleep, my only not so great point was that my room was over a chinese restaurant and the smell did filter up to the room in the evenings. The bathroom was a private bathroom but in the hall way between room 4 & 5 so not a problem. Everything was very clean and the weekend cleaner was very friendly. Breakfast was bread and jam with freshly squeezed juice and tea or coffee and the breakfast room had great views over the city.
This is a great hotel with lots of character, I couldn't imagain staying anywhere else if I find myself back in the wonderful city of Arequipa & I had the best food in my entire trip at Sonccollay Restaurant on the Plaza.
