Positives Hot showers Stunning views Helpful trip organiser - there for one hour a day Negatives Unfortunately the owner and his family spoke no English and were extremely rude when they realised that we spoke no Spanish, he knew the words 'pay' and room' so would aggresively say those when he wanted his money! Entering the hostel proved difficult! There...

Housed in a well-cared for colonical building in the heart of Arequipa, Posada del Parque, or Pirwa Park Hostel, is a family-run establishment. The rooms are large, high-ceilinged and comfortable. The common areas are attractive and comfortable, and very clean. The roof-top terrace has several seating areas both covered and uncovered with spectacular views of the surrounding volcanos. The hostel...

Nice cosy homely hostel, we stayed in a 6 bed room which had nice balcony doors which opened out so the room was airy and light. The roof terrace is really nice with sun loungers so you can chill out up there, there is also access to a kitchen so we made our own food a few times which saves...

We had a large, clean and interesting room. We arrived in the early evening and the ladies at the front desk could not do enough for us, they were helpful and welcoming. Breakfast on the rooftop with a view of the volcanoes was a treat as was the location just a few blocks away from the main tourist streets. It...

Rooms and halls are adorable, old colonial style, very clean and well maintained, spacious, comfortable with nice view – especially dining room and kitchenette on the rooftop, from where you can see tops of volcanoes and a cathedral. Unfortunately there is NO ONE who speaks English, not the nice lady (I guess the owner), not anyone on the reception –...

Clean, well-decorated. Hard to get a hold of staff, though-- the front desk wasn't always manned, and they didn't necessarily respond to the bell. Also, breakfast wasn't at 7:30, as advertised on the sign in the lobby-- you had to make arrangements the night before in order for the cook to get there on time. Would have been nice to...
