I have spent several nights in this clean, decent hostel. The owner had given me very good tips how to explore the town. The stuff was nice and friendly, one can communicate with them even if he doesn't speak Spanish. The rooms are clean, but because it is near a pub those rooms that look on the street might be...

Stayed at this place for a week or so before getting settled into an apartment in Arequipa. Great, helpful staff. Close to everything, but not too loud like some of the other hostels nearby. Not a party hostel by any means but a nice place to stay over all. Nice terrace overlooking the city and volcanoes, and a nice but...

Stayed 3 nights and loved it. Rooms were very clean, spacious and most importantly warm. The terrace on the room has a great view and the reception offers many tours. No kitchen but a stone throw away from all the restaurants you could want. But the best thing about Inka Roots is the staff. All are friendly and willing to...

This hidden jewel just off the main square. It looks like the rest of the hostels from the front but on the insides you will find a charming courtyard and a lovely upstairs deck. The rooftop deck is where we had breakfast every morning with a view of Volcan Misiti and the Santa Catalina Monestary. We stayed there for several...

We stayed one night at inks roots and were really satisfied. The rooms are ok and not too noisy. Staff really friendly and helpful. Most of all the location and the terrasse with the view of the surroundings were worth the stay, especially taking breakfast with the sunrise. Good value considering the price
