First of all... You cannot beat the location of this hostel for the price. $33 per night (for a private room and private bathroom), 3 blocks from the main square, across the street from the Santa Catalina Monastery, and surrounded by great shops and restaurants. In addition, free breakfast and a reasonably priced laundry service ( 5 soles per kilo)....

The bathroom was extremely small. The next visit our room was on the backside of the hotel and it was much quieter. Plus there was...

A great hostel to stay in Arequipa! Good accomodations and a friendly staff. It's located close to plaza de armas and with good restaurants options near by. And If you want to join the night life, you can find pubs too. You can also enjoy the roof top to see the sunset.

Le Foyer is a very good hostel: the staff is really friendly, the help you with a smile! The included breakfast is really good for the price you pay for the dorm.

“The only thing to be aware of is that it can be loud at night because of the activity on the streets. If noise bothers you, either request an inner room or bring ear plugs.”
