“Plastic on the beds, dirty and dingy”

We are located 5 blocks away from main square in a peaceful and private neighborhood. If you take a taxi please say the taxi driver that our address is near to colegio claretiano, or you can say in front of hotel casa de avila, or you can say we are near the intersection of Calle san martin cuadra 1 and calle cusco cuadra 1 in vallecito almost one block away from 'siete esquinas'.
Warning about the taxi drivers: • There is a high level of corruption between the taxis inside the bus station and some hostales! So please do not believe the taxi drivers when they try to persuade you not to come to Arequipay Backpackers taking you to other hostel, they always lie because those hostales pay the taxis commission and for sure you will not find a better hostel like Arequipay, our comments are our best guarantee!
