This place was fine. I liked the outside area with hammocks. My sister and I spent quite a bit of time out there. In my opinion it was more like a hotel experience. It lacked that community atmosphere you find in hostels. It definitely is not a bad place. I would recommend it. The staff was pleasant. I just prefer a more social atmosphere is all.
Great hostel with friendly and helpful staff. Have lots of fun teaching Portuguese for them. Is very safe and during the day there is a lovely dog called Kayla. The whole hostel looks amazing, but the bathrooms need to be renovated urgently!
Very friendly staff, Tv and playstation are huge! Location not too far from the main plaza and supermarket. Only room for improvement is the size of the dining room which gets difficult to seat for brekkie.

Very nice hostel. I stayed here 3 nights and really enjoyed the lounge area and patio. Thank you very much for such a nice stay pATO el chileno
This place is like a home away from home; I didn't want to leave
This has been our favorite hostel so far. Staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. Someone runs around at 10 am to see if you need your life laundry done and then it's back that night. Had great amenities which include a bbq in the yard. Cleanest hostel we have stayed in. As soon as someone finished showering they would rush in and clean it for the next person. Hot water at last and if you run out they just change the propane tank. Basic breakfast of bread and jam. Tea all day.
Lovely staff were very helpful, great place to relax after a few heavy days somewhere else
We really enjoyed our stay in Arequipay Backpackers, and even extended our stay. Really clean, nice kitchen and good beds. We heard we had luck with our room upstairs, because the rooms downstairs really suffered from the noice of the tv room and the doorbell. But after all, it´s a hostel, so you can´t prevent a little noise. We were really content!
Very nice hostel. Only bad thing os the pool table, but I can live with that. Great location, okay atmosphear.
Excellent invitation made the stay very pleasant.
Nice hostel. You meet a lot of other travellers. Staff was friendly and helpful. Overall very nice place, would recommend it to everyone backpacking or travelling to arequipa on a budget.
Highly recommended. We booked a tour with the hostel and a strike occured, and they gave us all our money back. Very good service!
A great hostel with a cool location, it is more of a quiet hostel than others it is good to meet like minded people who want to catch up on their time with other things than alcohol!! The location is easily accessible to the Plaza de Armas. Great TV & kitchen facilities
This is a super luxury hostel for an incredible cheap price. The staff is friendly, people are great, not much to say the best I have ever tried.
Everything's good! Cheap dorms, nice facilities, good staff, basic but good breakfast (apart from no coffee), fast wifi n all! Recommended.
Nice Hostel in Arequipa. Located just 5 min from the citycenter. It was clean, the staff was very helpful. Nice place to hang out (lots of DVD`s, nice Garden etc.) Only thing that bothered a little, was that it can be a bit noisy during the nights. We would still recommend it!
Very helpful staff, good spot, booked colca tour through them. Lockers in rooms, comfy beds.
A very nice hostel, a good place to relax and meet other travellers(cozy backgarden, pool and ping-pong tables, movie/reading room) and the staff is very helpful. On the downside, the breakfast is fairly basic and the cheerful atmosphere and late night chatter can be too much if you're planning to get up early for sightseeing tours. The hostel offers tours which cover most interesting spots around Arequipa and are fairly ok, but can be a bit pricey, so check out other offers before booking.
Great amenities, Awesome staff. The private rooms were a great deal!
