Nice, cheap and near the town center. Nothing more nothing less. Every room has its own bathroom and there is a shared kitchen for everyone. The owner is really friendly and helpful. rooms are clean and silent.

On double bed there was only a single sheet. Rooms not serviced and were very...

Just don't go there! Everything is a mess!! No one will write back, no one will no that you will come and they will ask you a second time to pay even - unacceptable really. Even our on time cancellation was ignored! There is no breakfast, although it's claimed (we were angry and then they served coffee and eggs and...

San Pancho is in a perfect location, just 1 block away from Plaza de Armas, which is close to several stores and restaurants. I arrived in Arequipa at 5:30am by bus and waited until 11:30am check-in as the hostel was full and my room wasn't available yet. Unfortunately, the waiting/living room, which had a couch, was outside on the patio....

On the first two occasions the manager was helpful, interested in us and was a great host. As soon as we paid on the third stay he changed and ignored us, he had got the...

The hostel is in a quaint little square about five blocks from the main plaza. Pancakes were the better option for breakfast - much more appetizing than the scrambled eggs. Staff spoke good English and helped us navigate the city. The hostel had one of the fastest wifi connections we came across while traveling through South America. It sounded like...

I would return to this hostel. We arrived early in the morning and found reception staff to be friendly, helpful and with good English skills and a smile :) We booked a private double room (not that much more expensive than a dorm room) with shared bathroom. Facilities were simple, but clean, and everything you need. Luke-warm shower was unfortunate....
