The hostel is central and absolutely beautiful, one of the nicest we've stayed in. As part of Peru hop we got a discount rate and was really cheap. The courtyard for breakfast is lovely and really relaxing. All was good except one night the bar was extremely noisy and we had to complain 3 times during the night. To be... More

This place was great. Our Peru hop bus arrived at 5:30am and check in isn't supposed to be until 1pm. The staff was friendly and let us have breakfast while we waited. We got into our room at about 9am. The rooms and clean and the beds are comfortable. The breakfast was very good. Wifi was pretty good but got... More

Good and clean hostel. Safe place as well as you need to ring the bell to get in. Has a nice atmosphere! There is a bar but when i was there the place was not really partying. Good WiFi and Helpfull staff. Close to the city centre Breakfast is basic but good.

We stayed here through Peru Hop. At first we were a bit annoyed as we were waiting in the morning in the common area for a trip to colca canyon. When the tour guide arrived the staff told her there wasn't anyone staying at the hostel with our names (even though he had taken our passports and we had filled... More

We only spent one night here, but they were having some celebration all night long which kept us up. They have a really nice courtyard area with the rooms around it, however the celebration was out there and sounded like it was in our room. Also, when we got there we were told that they had no clean towels and... More

This has been one of my favourite hostel experiences in the whole of South America! The breakfast was plentiful - buffet style with bread, cheese, cereal, yoghurt, tea, coffee etc. Tea and coffee were available all day which was a nice touch. Great communal areas - a tv room with sofas and a great selection of DVDs as well as... More

This hostel is located in a pretty cool area of Arequipa, just a short walk to the Plaza de Armas and close to a load of restaurants, cafes and bars. No real atmosphere in the hostel (I think the bar was only open one night out of the 3 we were there) but everything else was good

We enjoyed our stay here very much. The building is quaint and cozy, the rooms are tidy and the bathrooms pretty clean. I LOVED that I could get reliable wifi in my room; I just wish there were outlets near the top bunks. At first, I thought we had no hot water, but it just took a really long time... More

The Staff was very helpful, told me about nice places around. My room was really beautiful, but the maintenance of the bathroom was bad... Empty the trash maybe once a day, no toilet paper, no soap...
