“Lack of respect for backpackers”
Reviewed 9 July 2012 via mobile

Ive stayed at the pirwa in Cusco and Lima before, so I thought it was a safe choice for Arequipa.
Unfortunately, this pirwa hostel is operated rather differently. Managed by an older gentlemen rather than the young crew I'm used to, several things were off. First, they won't serve you any breakfast until 8.30. Second, there is a single lockable toilet for all the dorms. Good luck holding it in while someone casually does their makeup. Third, the cleaner tried to communicate (I believe) that I must leave the hostel between 1-2 while they clean.
So weird.

Though it's not a cheap place to stay, if you consider a Peruvian standard (which is extremely poor) it's worth paying a bit extra for a better service.

The receptionists are quite friendly and helpful. The room was OK, there are 2 computers for free, good Wi-Fi connection, and a free and very simple breakfast. Located in a good place where is quite close to the centre.

Very poorly furnished room: 2 bunk beds and one chair. I had to go downstairs (1 level) to use the toilet and bathroom. The building was rather outdated and not super well maintained. On the other hand the welcome was very heartly, the breakfast was included and the internet (+ PC) was free to use. The hostal is situated at +/- 800 m from the Plaza de Armas.
