Best hostel I have stayed in im S/A. A chill place with a social vibe so its super easy to meet people and a nice break from the other S/A party hostels. Super friendly staff and a hostel dog Kyla. Overall Great stay ans would highly recommend.
Good hostel offering kitchen, laundry service and local tours. Secure luggage storage. Short walk to main plaza.
The hostel is quite big, with a lot of people, so there is always someone new to meet. The bathrooms do tend to get busy on the rushhours. The beds are comfy with a good blanket. I did stay only one night, but would also stay again.
Super hostel staff where the best in SA

Super helpful, friendly staff, lovely homey feel and great kitchens. We had a fantastic bbq in the courtyard!
The safest hostel I have ever been in, it has it's own private gated road! Staff are amazing. Facilities are great, albeit the kitchens/eating areas were a little crowded at breakfast and dinner. Also the coffee was probably the worst I've ever had. Bathrooms were cleaned every hour and kitchen was cleaned every 5 seconds, super clean! Thanks for a great stay
great stay at hostel! would recommend it to any one travelling through Arequipa.
Great hostel near the historic center of Areuquipa. The staff in the hostel is incredible and helps always when you plan your further trip, activities and so on. Great atmosphere and nice not too big rooms.
Great friendly hospitable staff! Clean facilities. Relaxing. Great location!
This is the best hostel I've stayed in in SA!! Really. Stay here. Staff is super friendly and helpful. Very easy to book Colca canyon/el misti/etc tours through the front desk, and you can store bags easily in a locked room. Great common areas and decent bread/jam/banana inc breakfast. Nice backyard. Two movie rooms. Social but not a party. Staff keeps the place very very clean. Stay. Here.
The staff is knowledgeable about all aspects of the city and the surrounding area They have at their command places to go: social, educational, recreational and otherwise. They do this while proving a comfortable, clean and supportive atmosphere to travelers of all nationalities and and other characteristics. Simply put: they know what they are doing.
The building is awesome and feels more like a share house than a hostel. Plenty of space to hang out, awesome movie room and super friendly staff. Despite the owners comments saying the wifi works fine, it does not. Extremely slow and frustrating when a lot of people try yo use it. It is a bit frustrating you can only check out before 8pm or 7am if you are planning to do a tour, but a nice place to stay in Arequipa.
Best staff, everything nice - a great place for little money
Lots of hangout places and there is always hot water, even in the middle of the night! The staff are very sweet as well.
Nice hostel, got loads of TV rooms, ps, fussball, table tennis and pool. You can't get bored here. It's very clean too and the staff is so friendly and helpful!
Met some really nice people, cool to have a pool table, table football and table tennis. However I thought breakfast was a bit limited and the wifi was awful.
The staff were so helpful and made it a very happy place to stay.
I've been travelling for 6 months now and this is the best hostel I've ever been to. Incredible staff, great location (5-10 minutes away from the Plaza de Armas), very cheap, cool atmosphere, breakfast included,...but the facilities were the best: 2 well-equiped kitchens, 3 TV rooms with hundreds of DVD's (one of the room has a huge TV and another one a Plasytation 3 with recent games), pool table, many bathrooms, ping-pong table, hammocks, foosball and an amazing garden to chill out. GO THERE!
Grat hostel! One of the best i've been in south america. Great staff, location, social area..clean, safe, good breakfast. they left the breakfast later then the normal time so the late sleepers could have some food, and helped me out sending some clothes I forgot at the hostel to Puno. Go here, and go to the restaurant LA CAPITANA
Very good staff , help us with the taxi and ask the driver for the price befor we get into the car :) Nice breakfast , its like do it yourself ... The wi fi was not realy good
