We bookended our 1 night Colca Canyon trek with a stay here. Both rooms were comfortable and clean and relatively spacious. WiFi worked best in the courtyard. Good breakfasts. Very friendly staff, who were happy to let us in and out at ridiculous times of night because of our

Unreliable WiFi truly ruined the stay here because I could not access email or research tours for Colca. However this is claimed to be temporary only due to the internet provider doing upgrade work. My room was clean and comfortable but only one of the shared bathrooms had hot

Our room was kind of cute but quite stuffy as it had no window. There was very little guests for our stay and at the end we got a view of the other rooms and now feel we had the worst one even though it was empty. The bed sheets appeared clean but we had a purple top

Response from Eduardo S, Director de Recepción at La Casona De Jerusalen Traveler's Hostel
Responded 23 Oct 2017
Dear Guest, Thank you for your comment, we keep the door closed for security reasons, that is for your own safety and to keep our guests in a quiet and safe environment. As you said we have a bell that says "Ring at anytime for assistance" that bell we are very aware of to give our customers any service they might need. We apologize If as you said the timing was bad because at that moment there was no-one at the front desk, but I can assure you we are ready to open and close the door for all of our guests always. Thank you for staying with Us!

Hi guys, I don't believe this hostal provides airport transfer. That said, you should be warned that the trip from the Arequipa airport to this hostal is a fairly long one, and not very cheap. The hostal is right across the street from the tourist police station, and very very close to the monastery, and easy to find. I can't recall precisely what the taxi cost but it might have been around twenty or thirty dollars, or thereabouts- not soles, but dollars. Again, not cheap. It is a long drive from the airport. Be sure you SMELL the room before you take it, some of them can be very musty, and some can be a long way from the shared toilet if you aren't getting ensuite. They can also be very small with virtually now here to put your gear. Be sure to look before you rent. It's a long walk upstairs to the hotel. so be prepared for a bit of a hike. The good news is that they are very centrally located, and that makes them super convenient.

"Look at and smell the rooms first."
"A quiet environment with satisfying accomodation and breakfast"
"that's a very good hotel for backpackers. If you are looking for a fancy hotel, that's not that one."
"We used at least 75% of the rooms - all those I saw are of a similar standard."
"If you want peace and quiet ask for a room furthest away from the terrace."
US$15 - US$20 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
