My boyfriend and I stayed in this hostel for two nights, and we really enjoyed our time here. Jose, the owner, is super friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious, and have hot showers (yay!). There is also a rooftop terrace with great views of the city!

We found this hostel in the Lonely Planet and spent three nights here. Although there were no big problems with the place, and the owner José was very friendly, we were disappointed by the following: - Contrary to what Lonely Planet writes, the hot shower is not that reliable: gas tends to run out in the evenings (this happened twice...

This is a great place to stay. It's cheap, clean, has cosy rooms, hot showers, has a small kitchen area and a rooftop terrace for relaxed hours. The owner is really friendly and the location is close to plaza de armas and the other attractions of this beautiful city. What more does someone need?

I stayed here two nights. Recommend for people with low expectations The room is clean but very old. Lots of noise from the street but it is not in all the rooms here like that. The bathroom was also clean and good hot water but also very old and not so inviting.. The roof is nice.

Well located, away from the hustle but easy to find. Quiet rooms, with plenty of light but the plug socket was giving off sparks so the TV was a bit useless! Owner was friendly, but not massively useful. We left our bags for a day whilst we were on a tour and were fairly worried that they would be returned...

I spent 4 nights at La Posada del Cacique with two mates. I would stay again however it could be a bit of a mixed bag for the traveler with high expectations and a budget wallet. PROS: The Posada is conveniently located in the center of Arequipa a 5 minute walk to the Plaza de Armas and 5 more to...
