Rooms are clean and staff is nice. A bit out of the way but not too bad. Bathrooms are filthy. Fausets drip all day long, tons of whatever everywhere, not much hot water. It doesn't seem like they clean them much either. This is such an important aspect of a hostel and they clearly failed.

This is a great hostel- a bit far from the plaza, but what they lack in location they make up for everywhere else. Wonderful staff, nice beds, clean bathrooms, great at,sop here, and an eclectic group of travelers. Highly recommend!

Really nice hostel with great staff! Good kitchen facilities and nice big outdoor courtyard/garden with hammocks. Good kitchen facilities. Could have a few more bathrooms perhaps but not really an issue.

This is a great hostel with a really nice vibe. The staff are extremely friendly and are very helpful for booking treks to Colca canyon and to climb the volcanoes. There is a big dining area where people chill, and a really nice outside area for reading. The only downside is that the hostel is a bit far from the center of town, but so are most of the hostels in Arequipa. Hot water was sometimes available. I would definitely stay here again.

Good location and friendly staff. Decoration could be a bit better (considering there are lots of signs telling you not to do stuff). Breakfast was limited. Had difficulty getting hot water in the shower to work, despite the fact that it seemed like the gas heater was working.

Overall was good. The negatives: the upstairs bathrooms had many broken windows and with the cold wind at night and the cold water it was very unpleasant. The positives: The beds were good and warm, and overall clean. The staff was amazing! The (2day) tour to the colca you can arrange at the hostel was also very good and fair priced. Location was good, but not amazing, but if u dont mind walking 7/10 min to the center its totally ok!

The hostel is very nice and the location is great: it's at 5 blocks from the Main Square. The atmosphere is really nice!

Really flexible with Colca Canyon trips, nice comfy beds and offer reasonably priced laundry. Only complaint was that the living area was full of flies. Would recommend.

Good location little further away from main square but near a big supermarket and local restaurants. The staff were fantastic helping with yours and bus tickets and really friendly also keep the place really clean. Only cons are the kitchen area is a bit small for the number of people and the hot water was hit and miss.

Great location - one of the closest hostels to the bus station but still right near the centre of the city. Market and supermarkets both close by. Lovely staff, especially Nancy and Susan
