This is a friendly hostel in Cabanaconde (not in Arequipa) which gets its reputation through the helpful staff, and good restaurant. The rooms are basic and quite cold (although there are a lot of blankets on the bed) and the bathroom is very basic, but with hot water.
What made our stay here enjoyable was the cosy restaurant where we ate at night. The pizzas and other food is good, and there's a really nice atmosphere.
The staff met us when we arrived and took time to talk us through the maps he gave us (note, that they aren't that accurate and we had a few tricky moments on the trek where the path divided and we didn't know which way to go!) and they always talked to us when they saw us.
This is a really nice place to stay when in Cabanaconde.
