Friendly AQP is one of the best hostel I have stayed in while in Peru. The staff is really helpfull and nice. The breakfast is delicious ; way better than the usual bread, butter and jam that you get everywhere.

Excellent hostel located in a quiet neighborhood of Arequipa. It's well equipped with a huge tv, pool table, ping pong table and many board games. Nice common area to chill and watch a movie, and big patio to enjoy the sun. The wifi is strong, and available everywhere in the hostel, excellent for those of us working while on the road. The rooms were clean everyday, and so were the bathrooms. Staff was amazing too! Curtains in own bed was a nice touch :) Breakfast was good too, pancakes or eggs.

The staff at Friendly AQP were great! We arrived extremely exhausted around 7:30 on an overnight bus from Cusco and they let us check-in early which was great! Gave us great info on Arequipa. The curtains around each bed were a great bonus!

Best breakfast ever! Scrambled egg or pancakes...yummy! Really nice atmosphere, clean and tidy with a nice little garden for breakfast when the weather is good. Really close to the Plaza de Armas and everything you would want to see. No complaints.

Fantastic hostel, great staff, great facilities and great location. Rooms were comfortable, communal areas clean and friendly and both showers and wifi are good. Stayed for four days and never had an issue with toilets and showers being busy either! Booked tours and bus transfers through them and received great prices. Can't recommend enough, if I return to Arequipa, will definitely use here.

A nice hostel. Breakfast with pancakes! Staff was very helpfull. We also booked a 3day trek to Colca Canyon with the hostel (This turned out to be excactly the same as 2day trek, but in 3 days. Also you should divide walking time each day by two. Like all other agencies the hostel wasn't honest honest about this..)

I think this hostel is definitely a good choice. The service provided for the money paid is really good. I would emphasize in particular very helpful and friendly staff as well as delicious breakfast prepared and served by the staff itself as well.

Private double with shared bathroom was bit grubby with peeling paint. Bathroom was located off main foyer. Much better choices to be found in Arequipa for the same price.

Friendly AQP lives up to its name being the friendliest hostel we've encountered yet. Very helpful and very kind, these guys go out of their way to make your experience in Arequipa great. Excellent wifi, good electric showers, lots of recreational facilities and a really nice environment. Couldn't recommend it more!

The problem of this hostel are the bathrooms. Just to WC and two showers for all the guests. Apart from this the facilities were very old and in need of a renovation. Security wasn't the best cause we found the gate and the entrance door of the hostel wide open all the time. For the same price you can find a better place next door.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Your comment seems pretty suspicious for many reasons.Where your dorm is located,there are 2 restrooms and 2 showers but in the first floor there are 3 showers and 3 restrooms more.The hostel has less than 1 year since we opened,all the facilities have remained in good conditions.We are located a good neighborhood,quiet and safe area.The doors are always closed and we always have a receptionist at the door.Is just your opinion against 101 comments from other happy guests with our good service.

Friendly AQP was the perfect place to stay for a few days in Arequipa. The breakfast was very nice, better than other hostel breakfasts I've had. The common area is very nice with movies, ping pong tables, hammocks, etc. The patio out back is relaxing if you need a day to rest, but the hostel is at most 10 minutes away from the city center. I definitey recommend this hostel!

An excellent hostel, very clean, with good facilities, comfortable beds and reliable, hot showers. Good location in Arequipa, close to the main square, but on a quiet street and close to a supermarket. A choice of scrambled eggs or a banana pancake for breakfast. Well-equipped kitchen. Helpful, friendly, and very service-minded English-speaking crew, especially Leila. :) I stayed for three days first and then came back twice.
