Excellent location in central Arequipa-very charming pedestrianised street with lots of lovely cafes around. Rooms were massive which was great. Woman on reception very helpful with booking Cruz del Sur tickets, also do Colca Canyon treks but found cheaper deals elsewhere. Kitchen a bit on the small side and not always clean, pancakes for breakfast were amazing though!! Wifi good. Showers dirty and cold. Roof terrace has so much potential but is not that nice at the moment.

Great breakfast- eggs or banana pancake- hard to find more than bread at hostels here. The roof is a really nice place to hangout with hammocksand chairs. Lockers for everyone. Nice staff if you need anything and great location. Walls were a bit thin so was sort of loud but that seems typical here, same with cleanliness, not bad, but normal. They use solar energy to heat the water first- when it runs out just ask to turn the gas on. Would stay here again!

great helpful staff. Amazing banana pancakes. Beds comfy and clean. Good location and small kitchen/fridge on rooftop. Maybe could do with updating but all you need is here.

Good hostel, could let people check in a bit earlier rather than having to pay when the beds are free. Nice breakfast (pancake/eggs) and good terrace. Staff very helpful!

Great hostel, lovely staff, good facilities, nice breakfast and amazing location. The only thing that could be improved would be to have lockers in the rooms (I was staying in a 4 bed dorm and there werent any but being such a small room it felt very safe regardless).

Location is unbeatable. Staff very friendly, although had trouble with our booking. Roof top lounge was a bit of a let down (not enough furniture) but breakfast was awesome! Rooms were nice, bathrooms were a bit rough though. Would stay again for one or two nights, but not much longer.

Thanks for your comment, we have two spacious living room with sofas and TV room where people are ,and the best we have a large terrace where most people are socializing is there where you belong and not all the time in the room or in bed you .Have a good trip.

First of all: perfect location! I stayed at a six bed dorm and the beds had curtains,so good! Also lockers in the room, but apparently not every room had that. The doors of the dorms don't lock but the staff does keep an eye on who enters the hostel, have to be buzzed in. The staff is super friendly and helpful! There is night security and the pancakes for breakfast are amazing! Can definitely recommend this hostel.
