There was no people....... Not the best front door....


great little hostel, friendly and very helpful. I didn't see a lot of other guests while there but it was still good.


It is a great hostel! The only thing is that the toiletpaper is missing a lot of times!

Staff were really friendly, tour to Cusco Canyon was great, would stay again.


Really friendly, nice and generous staff, helpful in any questions, the hostel is clean and pretty, a quiet and very good place. Thank you!


The only thing is that they have a large sandy courtyard area below the terrace areas and the cats that live there use it as a litter box. They also have chickens. The smell of the two wafts up to the terrace and it is very unpleasant. Other than that it's a great hostel, except they should fix the lock on the bathroom door.

Hello! Thanks for your comment! We DO still have chickens, but their home is all day long closed now and we try to clean up every day to make the place nicer! So, now it doesn't smell bad at all ;) Sorry if it bothers you when you were staying at us. About the bathroom, I think you meant the one near the steps to dormitory.The lock was not and still isn´t brocken, it´s just working different. If you close door inside, no one can enter. After your comment we'll put an memo! Thanks!


Close walking distance to the main square. Rooms large. Friendly helpful staff.

Hello, thank you for your words! It'll help the other to decide to come to our hostel maybe :) I hope you had nice time at our hostel! - Hostal Sol de Oro -


Nice spot in Arequipa for the money. Hot water all the time and great staff. Seemed a bit quite there and maybe has seen better days. We were allowed to use the kitchen although it felt a bit uncomfortable and was not easy to cook in there. Beds were good, I would not recommend the Colca Canyon tours.
