We loved staying in Tambo Viejo, due to illness of my son we had to extend our stay in Arequipa, and we were just so lucky to be in Tambo Viejo. Julieta, the owner was the most helpful and understanding host one could wish for. We ended up celebrating Christmas there and it turned out to be both a great...

We really enjoyed every aspect of Tambo Viejo: great value , clean rooms, excellent beds, a great garden to have a daily breakfast of ´pan de tres puntas´, a freshly squeezed orange juice and a strong cup of coffee. The attention by Julieta makes you feel at home right away. The city centre with the spectacular Plaza de Armas, beautifully...

We booked Tambo Viejo Hostel and on the photos it looked nice. But the oposite was true! The City of Arequipa was really really great. But about our stay: First when we arrived nobody opened the door after 10 minutes calling, knocking, ringing they opened the door. Oké we had a room. But the whole hotel and room were dusty....

I got a major heatstroke in Cabanaconde and we moved back to Arequipa for recovery. The Lady who runs this place was very helpful. She made tea from fresh coca leaves and told my girlfriend what we needed from the apothecary. The rooms are nice and had lots of hot water. Breakfast was good, with fresh juice every morning.

First of all, it seems that only one or two pictures posted for this hotel is correct. The pictures of the garden and the picture of the hallway looking to the backyard are correct. The lady who runs the place is really helpful. Breakfasts are rarely served on time. But, when you get breakfast, they are filling. You get eggs,...

HATED IT! This was, by far the worst hostel ever! The staff were incoherent with the ridiculous information they ditched out, face-to-face and via e-mail! There is a cat and a dog running around, entering the rooms as they please. We were given the wrong room, a matrimonio and were asked to pay for the tripple we had reserved! Ridiculous!...

During our trip thru Peru we stayed in this place for a few nights. We didn't liked it . We had a double room with a not so clean private bathroom included breakfast. But we never had breakfast but no one was around to serve us. The location is oke: just a 10minute walk to the lovely center of Arequipa....

This hostel might not look like much from the outside, but the rooms are clean and there is a lovely garden and patio. When we stayed here, there were two adorable dogs that would lounge in the yard. The breakfast is delicious, and can be enjoyed in the garden on a nice day. The rooms were clean and the staff...

My husband and I just spent 4 nights at Tambo Viejo, and had a very pleasant experience. Like many converted houses in South America it could use some work; however, it was spotlessly clean, from the public areas to the room to the bathroom.
