    I absolutely loved it here! The staff was soooo friendly and helpful with further bookings, like buses. There are activities like barbecues in the evenings which makes you feel like living together with friends. And the drinks at their little bar are exceptional ;)

    We had a really good stay at Econunay. The kitchen was w little basic but it had a really nice social area and bar and the staff were really friendly. We actually got sick during our stay and the staff made sure we had enough water and blankets. The hostel has a really nice roof terrace where you can overlook the town and it is really close to the historic centre.

    Great hostel, really well designed, lovely rooftop terrace with a view of arequipa, was quite quiet when we were there. Can get really cold at night but staff kindly offer extra blankets if you need. They are happy to store you bags for free if your hiking.

    I stayed here for 1 night before my Colca Canyon trek and 1 night after the trek. Super quiet hostel located less than 10 min walk from the main plaza. The rooftop is beautiful and I enjoyed chilling in the hammock. The staff was really kind and helpful to me even though I arrived at 5am and had to check out at 3am for my trek. There wasn't any hot water either time I showered and the bathroom by my room was flooded one night. Lockers are located in the lobby, not the room, which is odd.

    Nice enough hostel for our time in Arequipa, room nice size although we could hear noise from outside when trying to sleep due to single glazing and thin walls. Breakfast was on the small side and could have had more variety. WiFi was a bit temperamental and didn’t extend that far. All that being said hostel was laid out well and with some renovation could be a great hostel.
