  • The staff at Amazing Hostel Arequipa are fantastic - so friendly and helpful. They ordered taxis for us, stored our bags for us while we went to Colca Canyon for a few days and the one guy who used to be a guide at Colca Canyon gave us lots of information on doing a self-guided hike. Our double ensuite room was very spacious and clean and always had hot water. The banana pancakes at breakfast are delicious! The only downside is that it was very quiet while we were there.

  • They lost our reservation two times, second time the had our luggage stored, while we were on a tour, but coming back they had no rooms and wanted us to go to another hostel. We chose to leave! Pancakes good though...

  • About 6 blocks/less than 15 mins to main square and many attractions. The closest road is lined with travel companies if need be, but the hostel arranged a great Colca tour for me!! They use a great company. AMazing banana pancakes and tea for breakfast. Lovely courtyard. Computers to use and wifi. Rooms were clean. Hot water in low times (the afternoon/evening as opposed to the morning). Very clean. Near a few other hostels. Really enjoyed my stay. Double/private rooms have TV. Nice and warm.
