We had read so many positive reviews, and our disappointment may have been due, in part to our high expectations. It's a room, a bed and a couple of plastic chairs on the roof, not much else. The bed wasn't great. In our private room, there was mold growing on the outside of the bottom half of our door, and we have mold allergies. After spending one morning there (we booked the night before our early morning arrival), we moved to another hostel. For a little more money much better can be found.
Good hostel whit verry good breakfast! Close to main plaza. Recomend!
Nice place to stay in Arequipa! Great location close to the plaza, restaurants, etc. Cool set up with staircases leading to rooms and bathrooms. Showers are solar powered but we got nice hot showers every time. No real hangout area, so not the best for meeting people. The double room upstairs by the terrace was a good value, but it seems like the other doubles were nicer rooms. Staff was friendly and helpful. Overall I'd recommend staying here.
Loved this place - very friendly staff especially the men that work in the evening and overnight. Excellent value for the money - the rooms are simple but clean and nice. Excellent location. I arrived at 5am on a night bus and although my room was still occupied they found me a place to sleep. LOVELY PEOPLE. B'fast is not included but for 3 soles you get a very nice coffee and warmed up chocolate croissant. Heaven!!!! I highly recommend!
