    Favorite hostel in Arequipa! Great vibes. Everything is perfect organized, although there is less stuff since the pandemic. Evelin is so great and lovely, like everyone of the stuff there. If you want to feel comfy and home, this is the place to stay in Arequipa. Clean rooms and bathrooms, nice kitchen, good breakfast, fantastic atmosphere. Getting in and out was no problem at all! Would 100% recommend and visit again!

    I had an absolutely great time at Arequipa Backpackers. The vibe is amazing – chill and friendly without being a “party” hostel. Made some great friends and was sad to leave in the end. I also want to mention how by my first morning the staff new me by name which was incredible. Overall, would highly recommend for great friends and a great night’s sleep.

    Super place to stay. The staff is really nice, comfortable beds and a nice hot shower. Wished it had been a little more social and I'd like to see a 24 hour reception desk, or atleast later than 8 PM!

    I had an amazing time in this hostel and I extended my stay. It is clean, homey and very social. Met lots of cool people here and the staff is also very nice! I would definitely recommend staying here when in arequipa! I would stay there are two points of improvement: there were barely any plugs working in the hostel and there were none near the beds, charging your devices was a bit of a pickle here. The hostel is very secure but the second door seems unnecessary and a hassle.

    Shower is not hot enough. Has nice facilities but they are so strict and don't allow any guests from outside. The entrance with the gate is annoying. You always have to call them to have someone to open the gate for you to go outside and come inside. In the evening you have to call the phone number to open the gate because there's no staff. What if I lost my phone? I'd be locked out all night. It feels like a super strict college dorm. Some staff are not friendly at all.
