Reviewed 2 October 2013 via mobile

Very friendly service. Received prompt responses to emails to set up train station pickup. Very well run and organized hostel. Clean rooms. Hot showers. Nice bar with nightly games/events. Enjoyed the food from the bar very much. Happy hours with some $5soles drinks, awesome. Quick laundry service back same day if turned in before 11am. Would stay again.

The place is nice and conveniently located in the city centre. Me and my friends stayed at Kokopelli for around a week. I stayed in the private rooms. They very cozy, clean and quite comfortable. I don't usually like hostel but this one I liked a lot. The atmosphere is quite relaxed and laid back. This is not a party hostel so it's great for people who just want to relax but still want to have a beer and a conversation at night.

I left my trekking shoes here and they were sent to me to Arequipa free of cost. This is just great customer service.

Room Tip: If you like quiet and don't mind paying a bit more then choose the 'private' rooms with...

A friend & I stayed at Kokopelli before and after our Machu Picchu trek. The staff was incredible, beds were comfortable, and environment was amazing. There was plenty of space to hang out/things to do at the hostel. We stayed in the dorms closest to the bar, but there was no sound issue whatsoever. The showers were definitely the best showers in Peru. Water was HOT, and the water pressure was fantastic. I would stay there again in a second.

Pretty much a hippie location. Good if you are looking for a bunk bed to sleep in and a bathroom to use. But you get what you pay for! Bring your own towels, soap or pay for them.

It is the cheapest possible place to live in on any budget. For the money they charge, they are pretty safe and reasonably clean.
Guests can volunteer to be bartenders to further reduce their costs.

My friend and I stayed at Kokopelli for 4 nights, and it was great. Rooms are clean and the large dorms have bathrooms inside the room. The courtyard is wonderful during the day. It was also nice to have the option to eat lunch or dinner in the hostel - the food at the bar is quite delicious. Staff was very helpful and the atmosphere was very laid-back. We really enjoyed our stay here

We stayed at this hostel for a few nights before and after trekking to Macchu Pichu. The staff and fellow travelers are friendly, warm, and helpful. The space is clean and cheerful and it is located central to most attractions.

Room Tip: We stayed in a private room, it was great! Huge private shower.

Great place.. Great people running the place as well... Helpful and fun .. Got its own bar which is pretty good.. And a travel desk to help out too...
Just one thing which can be annoying is the squeaky floor boards which can be a pain...
Apart from that... Brilliant place to be in... Don't miss it :)
