the location is great, the terraces are great, we had a room on the top floor with a great view. great value for money and a comfortable sleep. perfect for your stay in Arequipa
the check in staff were very friendly and spoke fantastic english, with other staff it was sometimes hard to communicate and weren't as welcoming
There is no kitchen. Just some place to heat some food.
I liked the location and the price...
Could have had real hot water...even if I showered after 10 AM as suggested for using solar hot water...
No hot water! Hot water can only be realized when the sun is out. Unfortuanetly for us no hot water the entire stay! At 06;00 am a new check in arrived of 15 people whom did not ubderstand the concept of early morning silence. The front office host did not care about their paying guests and did not take any action to avoid a mess during this morning.
For travellers whom would like to do laundry in this hostel be informed the hostel mentiones laundry service but cannot provide this service in mentioned time. Laundry should be delivered to them before 10:00 am. We tried to hand it in at 09:40 but were dissapointed to hear laundry service already passed by.
We got there very early in the morning, woke up the guy at the reception. He was very friendly, offered us a cuppa and gave some directions for the city. The room was big and clean, bed comfy. The neighborhood is quiet and just 5 mins away from the main square. Recommeded.
Clean, safe, well located, good internet connection and a friendly staff.
Only few steps to Main Square by the main walking path, the hostel has a basic kitchen and a pleasant terrace with views of the volcanoes .
We are environmentally responsible, we use solar energy to heat water for showers and propose different types of landfills for selective distribution of waste.
The property has free internet WiFi and propose services as Airport shuttle and laundry.
We also propose excursions to Colca Canyon and rafting at the Chili River.
