I have booked a room with them around 6 months in advance. ONE DAY before arrival they sent me an email saying that hotel is closed and the have to cancel my reservation. It was not very nice news because we were travelling with the child and I wanted to avoid hanging around the town with all suitcases trying to... More

Hotel has great location- really close to plaza de armas and santa catalina! Great stuff and simple but nice rooms. Bed was a bit uncomfortable but everything else was great! Really nice roof where you can enjoy sunrise.

We had a couple of nights here either side of a colca canyon trip. The Italian couple who run the hostel are great, although they don't have much English. On our first night they offered us speghetti bolognese for 10 soles each which was a tasty, healthy portion. All rooms are shared bathroom which are kept very clean. In fact... More

We spent a couple of nights there before our 3 day trek in the colca canyon and we had a great time. The Italian couple that runs the Hostel is very welcoming and nice, and always ready to help. We left our luggage there for free whilst on our trek and we had no problem at all. At this price... More

We booked upfront we left Argentina to go for our Peru-trip, and on arrival everything was in order.

Hospedaje Macondo is located centrally in Arequipa. For the price it had everything you could ask for. The rooms aren't ensuite but the bathrooms are kept clean & it was just outside my door. What really made this place were the owners,so welcoming & helpful! I wish I could've stayed longer in beautiful Arequipa.

It's a very nice hostel in a good point of Arequipa. It is about two blocks from the city centre. The rooms are clean and quite pretty, maybe the restroom was a bit smelly but there was hot water there so I can't complain. The Italian guy working there was really helpful and charming. You can have also a simple... More

The place is on a perfect location, the owners are friendly and the rooms are very clean. You can easily take one of the rooms with shared bathroom because it's clean. The breakfast is not special but reasonable.

We had a fantastic stay at Hospedaje Macondo, mainly thanks to the owner Luigi. Our room was lovely, bright and clean and even though not ensuite, the hostel is small and the bathrooms (spotlessly clean as another reviewer has said) were right outside our room, so we felt we got excellent value for money as it almost was ensuite!
