    We had a great time in this hostel, we were assisted with everything we had to do, the staff was really lovely and kind. The location is great, a short walking distance to everything you need in the city center. Beds were comfortable enough and the game room was fun.

    Chris is extremely helpful; assisting travellers with information, tips, arranging tours, etc, always very friendly not matter the time of day or night. I could leave my luggage secured at the hostel and go for tours. Great location, very close to Arequipa Plaza de Armas and other main attractions. Highly recommended!

    Nice hostel with clean and comfortable rooms. The location is very good (near Plaza de Armas) and there is a terrace on the roof with a beautiful view over Arequipa. :-) The owner Chris is very kind and friendly and helped me with all my special requests and issues. He knows a lot about the city and organised tours for me. Thank you very much!

    The hostel is located in a great location, only a five minute walk to the main square! The room had everything necessary, including hot water in the shower, and lots of blankets if it got cold at night! The owner is a nice guy, who took care of all necessary needs and had an adorable cat on site too!

    Overall a nice hostel with a perfect location and what I liked most; it has a kitchen! The bathrooms and kitchen were a little dirty but manageable. The owner is super nice but the place gives a little an abandoned feeling which is a little sad because it has a lot of potential!

    Was a very chill hostel when I was there as not very booked up. Looked as if it used to be real social hub, with all the equipment and room layout they had, but maybe hasn't taken off again after COVID and definitely needs some TLC. However, the man who runs it was very nice and helpful, letting me store my luggage whilst I went to visit Colca Canyon for two days and letting me shower before my night bus.
