The sheets and beds were clean but that was about all. Location was excellent, half way between touristy Plaza de Armas (5-10 minute walk) & a fantastic selection of local restaurants & bodegas (2 minute walk). The owner doesn't speak English & when I tried to ask for things like a bucket to do my own laundry, he gave a flat out no and refused to help at all. He also pushes a particular tour company and smokes in the main room so it's not a place to go if you have smoke sensitivity.

Staff was very friendly. Minutes walk to Plaza in the middle of Historic District. Roof top view. Decent value for money spent (80 soles/ $29USD for 1 night in double room- 2 ppl) (visit was during mid season)

This hostel is in a great part of Arequipa. Most of the best sights are within walking distance. The staff are inviting and rather flexible. Overall not a bad place to spend a couple of days!
