Breakfast is on the beautiful terrace and you can pay a bit more for some nice scrambled eggs. The terrace is blissful...

dorms are basic, but beds are comfortable and there are big lockers. As a solo backpacker, I liked all the common areas, great place to socialize. The roof terrace was an amazing place to enjoy breakfast or a beer.The staff was always nice and they gave me tons of info on tours, activities, restaurants and what to see in town.

The personnels are all friendly and try to help you hard. The bedrooms and bathrooms are clean. However, the shower is sometimes not warm enough. The location is near all the tourism sites, so it's convenient. I will come back if I visit Arequipa again!
