Nicest most genuine staff I've ever met. We had an issue with our online reservation (private vs shared bathroom -maybe not their fault) and they were sooo accommodating. Sweetest people. Nice rooftop spaces. Quiet street. Best breakfast I've had in S.A. They just keep bringing food out. If you are looking for sweet caring people, nice facility a bit more quiet with good breakfast I recommend this. Close to things but further away from the chaos.

We liked staying at Marlon's House. Marlon himself was super nice and really more than helpful with organizing tours (we could have organized our whole trip in advance if we wanted to). In total a nice and quiet place to stay. Only thing I didn't like was that we had to pay for the shower when we returned from a trip (which we booked with them!). I know other hostels also charge for an extra shower but, come on, we stayed 2 nights at their hostel, we booked a tour with them... needless.

Coming to Marlons House in Arequipa is like already having friends there. This familyrun hostel is very nice and calm, and the staff tries to accomodate your needs, whether you stay one night or many. All facilities works well, and everything you need are at hand, lockers, internet, laundry service etc. A nice breakfast with fresh fruit is also included, as well as a lovely roof terrace where one can chill out or sunbathe.

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.

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.
