    It was very friendly stay in Peter's Hostel, check in and explanation was good, without english , but we managed. The bed was very comfy and enough toilets and bathroom, so no feeling of crowded. The breakfast was ok, coffee ,tea ,fruits, cornflakes, bread and jam on the rooftop. Location was great near shopping street and historical places, and a lot of travel agencies with a lot of opportunities. I would come again , any time 👍👍👍

    Great value for money, it's cheap, friendly and with a lot of travellers/backpackers who are on the road for a longer period of time and have nice stories. The rooftop terrace is great for relaxing. Not super neat and clean (the kitchen and toilets are old) but the really friendly personell and good vibe really makes up for that. Beds are good, there are lockers and a storage for your backpack if you want to do a trekking. There is a club on the other side of the street that causes some noise.

    Peters hostel is in a great location right in the center of Arequipa and a few minutes walk from the plaza del Armas. We stayed in a private room which was perfect for us but simple. There is a lovely rooftop area with a small bar and good views. We really enjoyed chatting to the staff at the bar. Great place, would recommend!

    Great location and great rooftop area. Super helpful staff. Limited kitchen facilities-we couldn't find any bowls when cooking at all. WiFi wasnt very strong and was quite slow

    It's ok, very good location. However, internet doesn't work in the rooms and it's super loud as it's just nxt to the main street. Moreover, there is no atmosphere.....

    A good hostel in the middle of the action if you are looking for a relatively cheap stay - sheets were clean and front desk helpful. Bathrooms were also always clean. Cheers

    Good location, staff was nice, the place looked clean, secure, lockers in the dorm. they have kitchen available, refrigerator, enough space to hangout in the rooftop. The breakfast is not included and would be great if there would be drinkable water available.

    Good location and cheap. Not a place for sleeping, however. Private rooms are on the roof terrace next to the bar, and are not well built so are very noisy. On the Monday night we stayed, staff were sat at the bar playing loud music and singing. I complained twice at reception (once asking to change rooms to no avail) but nothing was done. By the time the hostel bar closed, the club opposite had opened and is easily heard from inside the room (with earplugs in). Dorms downstairs probably quieter
