Our family of 6 stayed here on two occasions as we traveled through Peru. We were given a dorm room on the bottom floor, which was very spacious and comfortable. The room had individual lockers for each of the six beds as well for those that might want to lock up their things. The owners are very relaxed, and we... More

great hostel in the middle of the center. The stuff was amazing, although the kids were playing every morning in the sleeping area, so it was quiet loud in the morning. Breakfast was great and the price was for Peru not too bad. Definitly stay here again, when coming to this nice city

a clean and tidy hostel with in walking distance of the main square and shopping, bars etc... being a little away you do not get all the traffic noise. Here in Arequipa I found the cheapest silver than any other town or country in South America. The staff are extremly friendly and helpful,
