    The staff at Arequipay Backpackers Hostel made my stay something else, helping me book the Chachani tour and letting me use all the facilities the next day. This hostel is social while not a party hostel, and there are lots of ways to entertain yourself here (books, ping pong, a gaming room, etc). All in all, I loved this hostel!

    A really lovely hostel. It felt very secure, lockers in each room and a key to your room. The staff were really helpful especially in offering advice on things to do in and around Arequipa. It was a quiet hostel with a friendly atmosphere and felt homely. The kitchen was basic but there was enough to cook meals and the showers were amazing!

    Wonderful hostel just a little way out of the bustle of central Arequipa – we loved it! It was extremely clean and the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, offering us plenty of recommendations and giving us many options on which tours to book (we did a Colca Canyon 2 day trek, which was stunning). There is also a very social atmosphere: the free included breakfast is served at a big communal table and there are nice outside spaces. Super clean beds and bathrooms topped it all off! Thanks!

    Really nice and helpful staff. The building is a little dated but it is kept clean. They have a great yard and really try to keep the atmosphere relaxed. It is located just outside the city center so it is quiet!

    Great place to stay. Close to the downtown area. Showers clean, and room as well. The bunkbeds were noisey and felt a little unstable
