    One of my favorite hostels I've stayed in thus far in South America. Super homey vibes. Has a kitchen, great for meeting people, and the free yoga classes were a nice touch. My only suggestion would be having a water refill station that would be usable for a fee so guests can cut down on plastic waste.

    If you are staying in Arequipa, book this hostel! Amazing staff taking the time upon arrival to explain everything you need and wish to know about the City. Always helpful and friendly (I ended up staying 7 days instead of 2 due to the amazing atmosphere). Showers are in separate bathrooms and the water can be tuned to just the right temperature. Clean kitchen, several hammocks and much more!

    Arequipay backpackers has an awesome vibe and a lot of places to chill ! I definitely enjoyed my stay in the 8-bed dormitory. The only thing I struggled with was the mess in the room as there is no space to store your big luggage. It can be quite chaotic especially when some people have there stuff everywhere. Nevertheless, very quiet place and only a 10-13 minute walk from the center.

    Really cool hostel with a good vibe. We enjoyed our time here and met some great people. The breakfast is a great place to chat to fellow travelers. There are loads of facilities such as pool table, table tennis, games room etc. There is also a resident dog! It's not a party hostel so you can get to sleep at 11pm. The location is good in a quite area and about 15min walk to the centre of the historical district. Arequipa is such a nice city and highly recommended!

    Super friendly hostel with really great staff. Great atmosphere and loads of activities. The hostel also hosts tours which are really easy to book. Rooms were a bit warm in the morning but comfortable for the most part, good value for money!

    Recommend to me due to atmosphere but didn’t live up to it. Had some lovely people in my room but hard to socialise otherwise. Didn’t like it was far out from the centre and didn’t feel safe walking in at night. Bathrooms were kind a of dirty. Good kitchen. Biggest downfall - no plugs by the bed in the 6 person room. Based on atmosphere, bathrooms and no plugs / privacy curtains wouldn’t recommend
