    We really enjoyed our stay at Arequipay Backpackers. The location was great–right within walking distance of the Plaza de Armas and many restaurants and historic sites. Our room was comfortable and clean. On top of that, Evelina and the staff were incredibly kind and made us feel welcome.

    I had such a peaceful and relaxing stay here. My favorite place was the back garden where I was able to journal and read on a hammock in the sun. Highly recommend this place if you want a place that feels like a home!

    A beautiful hostel with wonderful people, and just a short walk from the center in a safe area. The welcome was hearty and I immediately felt like I was home. The owner gave me advice on the best places to eat, fun activities and museums to check out. I went there just after the lockdown, so they made me feel extra special the entire time I was there. I will definitely stay here again if I come back to Arequipa! :) muchas gracias! +

    No need to look anywhere else!This is a relaxed and peaceful hostel in a great location. There is a lovely ‘family’ feel and resident baker is a great asset, with fresh homemade bread for breakfast and excellent pizza and cakes to order. The owner is super-responsive, helpful, warm and friendly. It deserves the 10 out of 10!

    The staff was extremely helpful in guiding us on how to do all of the things in Peru during COVID. The organized tours and treks were awesome. The hostel is clean and in a good location close to everything. Would recommend to any of my friends.

    Really nice place to stay in Arequipa. It’s about a 10 min walk to the city center. Beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean. The wifi was reliable too. Only downside for us was that the showers filled up with water really easily which made them a little gross. The staff was nice and helpful and the kitchen is a good amenity too. We would come again!

    Far from town and doesn’t feel safe walking at night. There’s no staff after 1pm which does not make you feel safe. Someone ate half my food and put it back in the fridge…gross.
