We were especially really happy with the owner. He was willing to do everything for his guests and really concerned. We would definitely recommend it to other people's
La Posada del Kuraka is a great hostel. I have stayed there 2 times now and would definitely stay again. Jose the owner is very friendly and helpful. He gave me lots of useful info about the city and surrounding areas. He let me keep my bags there for free when I went to Cañon del Colca and also lake Titicaca. The hot water was always reliable and the rooms were clean. This was a really enjoyable place to stay. Thanks to Jose:)

Jose is an extremely friendly guy who will welcome you and take care of your needs in any way. The hostel has an excellent location, very very close to Santa Catilina Monastry and a few minutes walking from the main square, cathedral, restaurant, tour agencies, etc. The breakfast is not available, but it doesn't really matter. Very highly recommended hostel forbany kind of tourist of any age.
La Posada del Kuraka was perfect for what we needed in Arequipa. Jorge is an absolute legend and will go out of his way to make sure you have everything you need. The rooms are basic and the kitchen is not very well equipped, but the highlight was the showers which were HOT and powerful!! Would definitely recommend this hostel.
Great place to spend your time, great stuff, cheerfull and helpful. Jorge it's great, hope to see him soon. Very recommended hostel, I was feeleng great.
This was the third hostel I have stayed in in Arequipa and the best. Jose is so friendly and willing to help any way he could as was Claudia who does the cleaning. My room was comfortable although there was a problem with the light in the bathroom, I didn't quite understand the reason I was given as to why. I had wifi in my room although it did cut in and out a lot. Wifi in the lobby is fine. The kitchen is very small but ok for what I needed it for. It would be good to have had a fridge.
I think the place was great, I enjoyed a lot my stay there. I would definitely go back to the same place if I go to Arequipa again. Jose was also really nice.
This hostel was great. I returned from a tour with a sore neck and the owner couldn't of been more accommodating. He offered me a free room to rest until my bus, a hot shower and to make me a tea. It was so nice to see a hostel actually wanting to help without charging you. On a side note, it was a close walk to the square, the beds were comfortable, the showers hot. I would stay here again.
Started well but ended badly Returning from Colca Canyon tour there was no hot water for 3 days and mother gave us excuse after excuse (too many people in hostel, guests doing laundry in rooms, weather too cold etc). She told us that Jose had visited and found no problem, he hadn't. When she finally contacted Jose (he was taking time off) he confirmed the gas was empty. Very poor comunication between staff and no forward planning from Jose. Check things twice have a plan should problems arise!
Great hostel, extremely good value for money. The owners are absolutely fantastic, always super happy and very helpful. Clean rooms. Kitchen lacked a fridge and food storage area, although this was no major concern. Highly recommended.
The owner is just great : really nice and helpful. Rooms & bathroom are very clean and quite modern. Nice view of the city on the rooftop. Good location. Very cheap and great services.
Jose and his mom are VERY nice! I would highly recommend staying here.
Very kind and helpfull staf! Jose gave me advise where to book my trips (Chachani vulcano and Colca Canyon), which was a good advise!
Jose and his mum very friendly and helpful. Rooms and bathrooms very clean. Hot shower very good.
