The staff was amazing and went out of their way to make all guests feel at home and make a nice atmosphere. They even took care of me in a few days when i was sick in bed. The breakfast was so good and generous compared to other hostels, and included a choice between different kinds of eggs or some muesli. I would definitely come back next time i visit arequipa!

Hostels. What are they?

Way more than just a cheap place to sleep, hostels are a social way to travel and meet like-minded people. Common areas like shared kitchens or games rooms are great ways to swap tips, tricks and travel stories with backpackers from all over the world.

Hostels have come a long, long way since the first youth hostel opened in 1912. From budget 'crash-pads' to five-star 'poshtels', today, hostels are for everybody, so whether you'd prefer a bed in a shared dorm or your own private room, you'll find most hostels are cheaper than a local hotel and far more fun.
