Decent hotel with very good breakfast and nice roof terrace. Beds were very comfortable and the water was very hot. What else do a backpacker need? WiFi was quite slow but it seems that the problem is fixed now

I stayed here for three nights with a friend and we really enjoyed our stay here. It's a great location, very close to the centre and has a wonderful roof terrace with views across the whole town. The rooms were good, bathrooms were very clean and staff were helpful and friendly. The bar opposite didn't bother us at all. Highly...

My boyfriend and I stayed here over a couple of nights in Arequipa. The hostel was clean, warm showers, excellent/cheap laundry services and excellent location. As with all the other reviews, it is VERY loud. Across the road is a bar that plays LOUD music into late hours of the morning (~4am), every night of the week. The sound was...

Great hostel in a great location. Just a couple of mins walk to decent restaurants and bars and 5 mins walk to the main square. The rooms are clean and tidy and we even got an upgrade to a room with a balcony for no extra cost. Although this did bring with it the noise of the main road just...

The room was fine, clean and basic. The shared bathroom was also clean and basic. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast on the roof terrace was nice. It was unfortunate that when we were there there were workmen installing a new staircase very close to our room. They started at 6.00 in the morning and carried on till...

The hostel staff were nice enough. The rooms clean and tidy. Towels are provided free of charge. Breakfast is a small egg omelette, two rolls, marmalade, juice and tea or coffee. There is also a laundry service for 5 soles a kilo. The location is ideal although it is extremely noisy at night as it is situated right in the...

Stayed here for about 2 nights before getting settled down in Arequipa. Was recommended this place by several people. While it is nice - nice location, friendly staff, friendly hotel dog - the place was just a little too loud for me. Not in the way of partying, but that it was right along the street and all the noise...

Breakfast was great! The staff were so smiley, friendly and eager to help. The room and the bathroom were kept clean. From the swing seat on the roof you can look out over Arequipa and clearly see El Misti! We had some trouble with our bus at 3am and the guy on night duty made phone calls for us and...

First of all... You cannot beat the location of this hostel for the price. $33 per night (for a private room and private bathroom), 3 blocks from the main square, across the street from the Santa Catalina Monastery, and surrounded by great shops and restaurants. In addition, free breakfast and a reasonably priced laundry service ( 5 soles per kilo)....

“The only thing to be aware of is that it can be loud at night because of the activity on the streets. If noise bothers you, either request an inner room or bring ear plugs.”
