    My favourite hostel so far, stayed here for a month. Very peaceful place but with good social atmosphere and a nice garden for relaxing. Clean hostel and hot water all the time. The stuff is super friendly and helpful. There is now also a new staff member who will steal any travellers heart. Lockers are good. Kitchen for cooking and super nice breakfast (not free but worth the 7 soles). Thank you for making me feel at home in Arequipa!

    Great hostel in Arequipa, run by a friendly family! They were able to organize my Colca Canyon two day one night driving tour, as well as rafting when I got back. Pretty close to the main square, and lots of good restraunts nearby! Dorms and bathrooms were basic, but they worked. Nice little garden and games room to hang out in!

    Clean and quiet hostel, I have a really good rest after 2 days hiking in the Canyon. The owner is very helpful and the little cat 'lo Strerminadore' keep you entertained. Kitchen very basic but if you are not fussy is enough to make a good meal. Good common are with table tennis. Recommended

    Its a cool set up for a hostel. Lots of things to do and its in a easy to get around location. The owner was extremely helpful and even had a fire in the backyard for us one night so the guests could chill out and get to know one another.

    The hostel is not very crowded, rather a calm place to hang out than to meet tons of new people. The staff does not speak fluent english, however they will try to help you as much as they can. Breakfast is better than in other hostels. There is not always soap in the bathroom and once there was a rat running through the dining area. There are windows in the dorms which is good. Appearently there is no printer, so I had to print my bus ticket in a near tourist travel agency.

    The best part about this hostel is the large spacious garden which is perfect for relaxing in the sun! The rooms are basic, some of the showers are perfectly hot, some are cold. Make sure you get the right one! The staff are wonderful and always happy to help. Thanks for a great stay!!

    Great location and the owner was nice, he let us pay after the colca canyon when we had change. But hostel itself was quite open which made it cold and the rooms felt damp.
