Stayed in a double ensuite room either side of a Colca Canyon trek. A lovely hostel, with nicely furnished, quiet, clean rooms and good views over the city to the mountains. Breakfast was good enough (cereals, bread and jam), but if you wanted more you could pay extra for freshly cooked eggs or pancakes.

Staff were very helpful and spoke some English. They kept our bags for us while we were on the trek and organised taxis to the bus station/airport for us. A little further from the main square than a lot of hostels, but it's only a short walk!

Thanks to all previous reviewers, we confidently booked Hostal Solar for three nights and asked for room on one of the top floors. We got it! Room 401 is on its own on the rooftop and the window perfectly frames the Misti Volcano. It was clean, had a fabulous hot shower, and breakfasts on the terrace were just lovely. We really adored our time in Arequipa.

Wow! Where to start?? This hostel is amazing. Our triple room was very clean and cozy and had by far the best shower I ever had in Peru. Breakfast was nice with great terrace view. The staff of the hostel were beyond amazing and helped us during everything - starting Machu Piccu tickets and when we had trouble with our Colca Canyon tour. The location is amazing and we enjoyed our stay so so much! You cant find better in Arequipa.

We ended up spending most of our nights in Arequipa at this hotel because our experience was great.

However, do not get a room on the bottom floor. The one we had there was only decent while the others were excellent. Get a room facing El misti for excellent views, and if you can, her the lonely room on the top floor - very romantic!

Also, great service! The receptionist went above and beyond to get us a room for half a day more, as we had a bus in the evening and my gf was sick. There were no available rooms, but he discovered that one of the guests had reported they came in late, so we got to use that room.

Good location as well, charming breakfast area, and beautiful views of misti.

Would go again.

We stayed for five nights in a double room on the first floor, near to the terrace.
After moving fairly quickly through Copacabana, Isle deal sol and Puno we wanted somewhere to relax, warm up a bit and enjoy the city of Arequipa, Hostal Solar was perfect.
The room was clean, quiet and comfortable and the bed was warm. The bathroom was also clean and the water was hot.
The staff were really friendly and helpful, giving us sight seeing tips and booking a night bus to Cusco and arranging a taxi.
The hostal is in a great location, just around the corner from some great places to eat. (The American beer/burger place was my favourite). It's also only a few minutes walk from the Plaza.
The terrace is lovely and warm, a great place to relax.
Definitely recommend staying here.
