    This hostel is in a lovely historic building in a great location and with a terrace and view of the mountains. The beds are comfy and the staff very friendly. I can recommend to stay here.

    Nice simple hostel. Shame there were builders meaning we couldn’t use the chill area. Breakfast was awesome, beds comfy.

    Really enjoyed our stay in Le Foyer. Super close to town, clean, comfortable and spacious rooms. It can get loud at weekends, however we stayed in the rooms to the rear (13&14) which made it far less noisy. The staff were super friendly and helpful. Overall a great place to stay in Arequipa.

    The included breakfast isn't great (a single pancake or single egg, with hot drinks and bread), but other than that, this was a nice place to stay. The room I stayed in was clean; there were some ants in the bathroom, but I expect it happens. It got pretty loud at night because it was in such a lively area, but it wasn't too bad. Nice view from the rooftop bar!

    Great location, can be a bit loud at night. Nice big breakfast. Can book bus tickets and colca canyon tours from the front desk. They stored our bags and let us hang around until our night bus.

    Don't go there If you want to party or to meet people! Looks more like an hotel than an hostel, no activities, tour, or common spaces

    The hostel is in a beautiful building, in an excellent location really close to all the main attractions, bars and restaurants of Arequipa. The staff are friendly enough, I wouldn’t say they go above and beyond. The rooms are comfortable and I didn’t have a problem getting hot water. Unfortunately all the previous reviews about the noise issue are not exaggerating - it really is very noisy, being in the centre of town. Pack some earplugs and sleeping tablets if you book here.

    We had a bad time with all staffs we contacted. They had absolutely no wish to help or give any information. But the instalations are beautiful, rooms are confotable and clean, breakfast is very good and its located in the middle of everything.

    We were quite disappointed with this hostel. Rooms are really small and it is so loud, which I wouldn’t mind if the music was actually good. Plus we got woken up at 3am to ask if we were going on a tour, we weren’t, and then got no apology for it. It’s fine for a couple of nights in Arequipa because the location is good but it’s definitely not worth the amount we paid for a private room
