    Chill place to stay. The guy who runs the place is super nice and goes out of his way to be accommodating. Dependable wifi, hot water, and decent view from the patio.

    Great hostel. Can not fault it. Friendly staff, excellent breakfast made when you sit down to eat, the best shower we have had in Peru - hot and powerful. Very nice garden area to relax and enjoy the sun. Very helpful with providing information about the city and local tours.

    Hostal Sol de Oro is one of the best hostels in Peru! Location is perfect, in the historic part of the city a few blocks away from the central plaza and walking distance to restaurants and bars, but quiet at night. Rooms and facilities are clean and spacious, with a fully equipped kitchen (great buffet breakfast included), a rec room, and a huge garden out back! The staff are great, the owner is super friendly and helped me organize all of my activities and travel in Arequipa. Highly recommend!!

    This was a great hostel in Arequipa. Ended up extending our stay two extra nights, as it was a nice place to relax, especially the garden in the sun! Not much atmosphere, it was quite quiet. The private room was good, comfy bed and hot shower (except the first morning it was cold). Breakfast is standard, bread rolls, juice, coffee, and eggs optional. When the owner found we were vegan he got us some avocado for breakfast which was so nice of him! Great location and value too, would recommend!

    We stayed here twice; before and after our Colca trek. First time, we arrived very early in the morning and no one was there to let us in, despite us emailing our ETA in advance. Our double en-suite had no windows so was a bit depressing. Second time we got a much nicer room upstairs. Showers are good, breakfast nice, WiFi decent. Free luggage storage (although it’s not locked). Location convenient, although on a street used exclusively by ancient buses (expect some noise and fumes).

    This hostel has a lot of potential but is a little run down. It could use some refurbishment. The garden is nice but a little out of the way of the main hostel so makes it difficult to socialise. Kitchen facilities are small and limited. The location in Arequipa is excellent and the staff are friendly and helpful. Particularly when getting up at 3am for Colca Canyon treks! However all things considered it's a little overpriced.
