    This might be one of my favorite hostals in the past 6 months of traveling. It’s very social without being a loud party hostal. Super cozy rooms that are not overcrowded with beds. Clean kitchen. Staff is soooo nice and friendly, gave me so much advice about doing Colca Canyon trek on my own and helped out with all my questions.

    Really great hostel and definitely recommend. Quite social but chill vibe and not a party hostel. Comfortable beds. Good amount of bathrooms. Helpful staff and lots of tours. Free breakfast. Secure front door with security lock and 24 hour receptionist. Free towel hire. Ideally would have a rooftop terrace but you can't have it all!!!

    The hostel is lovely, very good value for money. Warm beds, clean bathrooms, hot showers, good kitchen and amazing outdoor spaces. Also the staff are incredible and very helpful. We had a tour that got disrupted due to protests and they immediately helped us get a full refund.

    Had an amazing stay at Arequipay backpackers. The place was cosy and nice, slight walk from the main square but not too far. Marcelo and the other members of staff were so so helpful with booking tours, printing documents and advice, massive thanks to all!

    Lovely building with a rooftop terrace and backyard, wifi is good and the staff is very helpful if sometimes a bit busy. Breakfast is nothing special but you can have a much as you want. Some rooms get really cold at night.

    Definitely an older building compared to some other hostels I visited in Peru. It was quiet when I stayed there so I can't comment on the atmosphere but everyone was friendly. Staff were great. The breakfast was quite simple but it gets the job done when you need energy for the day's activities. It's about a 10-15 minute walk from the main plaza.
