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.

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!
We loved this hostel and can definitely recommend it. When we arrived we got a tour of the hostel, to show us the game rooms, nice patio, kitchen, bathrooms, etc. very friendly welcome! Plenty of bathrooms and never a wait even at peak times. To have the kitchen was great and we made good use of it. It was always kept clean by the guests but someone from the staff was always making sure that it was clean too. Good laundry service. It's about 10 mins walk from the main Plaza, safe walk.
Overall good hostel in a safe area very close to the main square Rooms are cleaned every day but bathrooms are not cleaned every hour as advertised Breakfast is very basic but you can order coffee, eggs and toast for 5.5 Soles. Some staff were great other were not as friendly
Hostel was super hard to find at night. The short girl they have working there is useless! Too busy messing around to help. The girl with the glasses was wonderful and super helpful. Helped me plan a tour to Colca and Lake Titicaca. They need to enforce their curfew on the floor up from the reception especially since they have rooms there. Don't have a curfew inside the hostel if you are not going to enforce it.
Great! I loved it. Met nice people there. Great Staf!!!
What a great place to stay. The staff give you a warm welcome even when arriving early morning. We were allowed to have the breakfast before checking in. The facilities are really good and plenty of places to chill out. One of the best hostels ive stayed on my travels...
Good place - save neighbourhood, nice staff and decent facilities!
