    MB backpackers is hands down the best hostel I've ever stayed at. Delicious breakfast including pancakes! Incredible location a stones throw from plaza de armas also. The definite icing on the cake is the bar however. A perfect place to enjoy the beautiful sunsets Arequipa offers up with a nice pool table and good music. The staff are as friendly as can be and down to party with everyone as well. There were awesome volunteers at the hostel during my stay who made my visit very memorable

    I stayed here for 4 nights before and after a trek. It’s good value for money if you’re on a budget, convenient location on the main shopping street and nice rooftop bar. Best breakfast so far - pancakes and eggs freshly made. Staff were friendly and helpful. The external laundry service messed up and didn’t have my clothes ready when I had to leave but the hostel staff helped to find a solution and sent my clothes to me in Cusco. Main downside: WiFi is a bit crap.

    This hostel is in a fab location but didn’t make for the best sleep. The rooms were really noisy at night. We tried both the matrimonial suite and one of the dorms - we were disappointed. Cold showers and dodgy WiFi. The staff were rude and abrupt, the only helpful member was the Male member on night duty then breakfast. To which we say thank you for helping us sort our tour when we were forgotten. Breakfast on the terrace was a plus.

    We didn't like this hostel at all. The wifi doesn't work, it's not just South America slow, it doesn't work at all. The staff were dismissive and unhelpful. The private rooms are right next to the bar and you can hear everything, not great for sleeping before a 3am start for Colca canyon. The toilets were frequently out of paper, soap, and were dirty. The location it has to be said is perfect.
