Marlon{s House is a lovely hostel. It has a nice roof terrace with great views of Arequipa and the mountains. The breakfast, wifi and facilities are all very good. And it is just a short walk to the main square. The best thing about this hostel though is the staff! They are lovely and very helpful, they really made me feel welcome in the hostel and in Arequipa!

I am a travel writer and photographer and I stay in hostels/guesthouses around the world. Marlon's House is without a doubt a fantastic guesthouse. The beds are comfortable, extremely hot water, quiet location not to far from all the activities, close to parks, excellent breakfast, nice rooftop terrace for sunset viewing and Volcano Misti. The staff are some of the most friendly to be found and they do everything possible to make your stay an enjoyable experience. Stay here & Enjoy Arequipa

Wonderfully helpful staff. A clean, tidy hostel. Quiet and tucked away but within close proximity to the city centre. Good buffet style breakfast. Wifi good. Cosy rooms. A very sweet family business.

Hello Thank you so much for join with Marlon's House Arequipa. We really appreciatte you your contribution and wish to you all the best .A warm hug for you and have a great time.


A lovely little hostel with really friendly and helpful staff who also run the Marlons Travel Agency, which does local trips etc The breakfast was good and the roof terrace was nice, if a little run down. The location wasn't great- although it was right outside the old part of town so not too far to walk. The hostel also lacked a good communal arean for travellers to meet.


Great hostel. Very friendly staff, hot showers, clean rooms, and a comfy bed.

Hello, Thank you so much for share your stay with Marlon's in arequipa.We really appreciatte your contribution wiht us. Have a nice time and see you soon. Kind Regards.


I don't recommend staying here. It is a good price, but there are many other places in Arequipa that are around the same price that I am sure are better. The most annoying thing was the door to get in and out. Especially at night, if you wanted to come and go, you never knew if someone was going to be there to let you back in. I overheard that a couple of girls got stuck out one night because no one let them in. The doorbell is also extremely annoying and can be heard everywhere.
