    The staff at Friendly AQP were very accommodating. The place was clean and I would definitely return. The only down side was the shower water not very hot but better than freezing cold.

    The staff here were awesome. Really friendly and helpful with my early check in and organising my Colca Canyon tour. The rooms are great; comfortable, secure and totally clean, with hot showers too. Also breakfast was lovely and the roof terrace is a nice place to chill, chill being the general atmosphere. Right by the main squire so it’s a perfect place to explore Arequipa from. Basically I totally recommend this place if you’re looking for a well-priced and relaxed hostel.

    We had a great stay here at Friendly. It’s a fairly quiet hostel so if you’re just looking to chill then this is good for that (Netflix in the room!) The family who run the hostel are just lovely and so helpful. We arranged our trips through these guys and can highly recommend both the white water rafting and the 2 day Colca Canyon trek (particularly if you get Rafael as a guide!) Location is great too - only 5 min walk to the Plaza. Oh and the breakfast - amazing banana pancakes!!

    If you like a nice place to rest this is the one, is quite and then staff is super friendly. I give them 9 just because the street where they are located was not very nice.

    The husband/wife team who run the hostel are lovely down to earth people, but the people in the roof top can get a bit rowdy.
