    Good location, close main plaza and easy to get everywhere in Arequipa. Not so clean, hot showers, staff atentious but a little confused. Breakfast starts very late and only basic. At least is cheap. If you go to Colcca Canion, be sure where you are going to. It is hard trekking, Kind of wild experience.
