Great place to stay


Nice place to stay in Arequipa! We did the colca canyon tour so it was a nice after the tour to have a comfortable bed and nice staff!


Great place to stay and very close to Plaza and super close to some great restaurants. Ladies who run this are lovely and really helped us out when we needed it. Rooms are old style as it is an old colonial home, but for the price it is fine. Breakfast was good, remembering the price point, plenty for us to eat.

The hostel was perfect for a couple needing a break from dorm rooms. The staff were very friendly but no English, which was not a downer at all. Rooms were very clean and comfortable , showers were hot. The egg was delicious for breakfast. Has lovely terrace but not a social place if you are a solo traveler.


We loved this place so much that we came back to Samana Wasi when we went back to Arequipa. That should tell you enough! The rooms are spacious, clean and have nice bathrooms with hot showers. The views from the top rooms are amazing! The garden is nice and very nice breakfast is included. The landlady is super friendly, as is the rest of the staff. They helped us out with anything we needed, even if we didn't speak Spanish and they didn't speak English, it all worked out fine!


Lovely hostel to stay in. Great location, clean spacious room, good hot shower, nice sun terrace to relax on, friendly staff and enjoyed the egg for breakfast!
