What a find!
Reviewed 15 December, 2018
We stayed here for 3 nights and found this place perfect for our needs. It is close to the main square, shops and the restaurants. The staff were great. The receptionist all spoke English. The rooms were cleaned daily, in fact the place was cleaned from top to bottom daily. Spotless! Our breakfast included fresh juice, eggs, bread coffee or tea and each day something a bit different, maybe cheese or olives, always a surprise treat.
The WiFi was strong in the rooms. The rooms are large enough that your not tripping over your luggage and they even had hangers! We had our laundry done at the hotel and they did a lovely job.
The morning we left, we had an early morning flight. The staff arranged for a taxi to pick us up and even had hot water for coffee waiting for us when we got up at 4 a.m. my only complaint is we should have stayed longer.
Nice place close to the centre of Arequipa.

PROS: The staff, despite not speaking English, were all EXTREMELY patient, helpful, and friendly. Good value - only 79 USD for a two night stay. Rooms are simple, but clean. The breakfast served (included with room) was decent - teas and coffee, freshly prepared fruit smoothie, bread, butter, fruit jam, scrambled eggs, and an extra (avocado or olives). The interior was cute - small, nicely decorated courtyard and many potted plants. Very good location close to Plaza de Armas and Santa Catalina Monastery and many of Arequipa’s best restaurants (such as Zingaro, Zig Zag, Crepisimo). Peru Hop bus offers drop-off to this hotel.
CONS: Wifi wasn’t always working properly. Hot water in shower was inconsistent. Also, Wild Rover Hostel nearby was noisy at times.

Lovely place , ample-sized rooms with shower and TV, friendly and helpful front desk. nice breakfast. All major attractions just around the corner. The building is a typical old town Arequipa building, white with thick walls and a courtyard. nice place from which to explore old town.
Lost wallet returned + great experience.

We stayed here as a family of 4 for only 2 nights. Rooms were clean, breakfast was great with fresh fruits and eggs. My mother left her wallet in the room upon leaving. The hostel was kind enough to send us everything to our next destination without any problems. They don't have a kitchen for guests but we were still able to use their fridge to store our groceries. Don't forget the great location as it's not directly in the center, but just a couple blocks away!
