The Staff was very helpful, told me about nice places around. My room was really beautiful, but the maintenance of the bathroom was bad... Empty the trash maybe once a day, no toilet paper, no soap...

We stayed two weeks at the Flying Dog Hostel in Arequipa. We enjoyed our stay very much because the hostel gives you the chance to calm down and relax. The stuff is very nice and helpful even with special request. The breakfast is good and includes cheese, ham, cornflakes and yoghurts. There is a TV-room with various DVDs which is...

My mum and I stayed here for 2 nights in a private room and it was a great place to base ourselves for exploring this gorgeous city. The room was big and clean and had comfortable beds and a warm shower so you can't ask for much more in Peru! The only note I would make is if you are...

We had a horrendous experience with another hostel (Friendly AQP, I gave a January review and the staff unashamedly denied everything on the response of my review ) so we quickly went to Flying Dog. We were very glad we chose Flying Dog because the staff was nice and welcoming. The best part of the hostel is the matrimonial room...

Nice big rooms (i stayed in one with 12 beds). Large wooden lockers for each person right beside your bed-remember to bring your own lock though. Staff was friendly and spoke okay English. We went on a 3 day Colca Canyon hike and they let us keep our stuff in storage for those days. Although the storage was frequently open...

I'm sure this place is quieter in general than the wild rover, but at 3 am in the rooms closer to the bar, you can hear the music, the crowd and people going to the toilet. It sounds like fun but don't go for a goodnight sleep Wednesday onwards. Friends who stayed on the other side of the hostel seemed...

Good - able to check in earlier, very nice building, good location, good community areas, nice guy running the place. Bad - the flying dog market itself as a quiet place. But there is a bar run by flying dog next door with an access door to the hostel providing beats until 2.30 am. The private rooms are very noisy....

The staff here is very welcoming and the reception is open all hours of the day. They are used to people coming and leaving at any hour so when we had to check out at 3 in the morning for a trek that was no problem. The hostel also has a cosy feel with a nice inner yard and colorfully...

We had a large private room that had a good, hot shower. Was very clean and well looked after. 24 he check in, free in room wifi, basic continental breakfast. Good central location with cnn on the tv. Can be noisy, it is a bit of a party hostel. Depending on what you like that can be a plus or...
