Sol de Oro turned out to be such a nice hostel in Arequipa. Very friendly and helpful staff. Free wifi and good priced laundry service. Great location close to historical centre. Not all people at the reception speak English very well, although they are very helpful and even called the owner Yuanita to be able to answer my questions.

First, I was very embarrased of the appearence of the hostel, but a room was very good and clean. The staff were friendly, and while I waited to release the room, I was offered a hot cup of coffee. But for breakfast they served very stale bread and never cleared in my room.

There is ALWAYS someone in the front, or very closeby. Location was great- it's only a few blocks from the groceries and Plaza de Armas. The rooms were clean and fairly large. Ours had a tv. The common areas were clean and also pretty large for hostels.
