We contacted Pachamama a month or so before our stay to confirm a spot on their tourist bus from Arequipa to Cabanaconde, and back to Arequipa two days later. This bus service was GREAT. Raul did a great job being on time and herding flighty tourists. However, upon arriving at Pachamama, no one was there to help us reserve a...

Having done so many tours in South America as part of groups, we wanted to walk the Colca Canyon on our own at our own pace. We had heard from other travellers that Colca Canyon could be done in two days and was quite a straightforward hike. Those that had done it in a group wished they had done it...

We stayed in a double bedroom with shared bathroom. It's slightly more expensive than other places nearby but looks worth it. The food is good too and the staff are friendly. The best bit for us was the confidence they gave us for self-guided trekking into the canyon. We were unsure despite reading lots of blogs. The staff here gave...

I stayed here with my boyfriend for a night either side of trekking the Colca Canyon. The double room at 90 soles was comfy with an OK shower but still minimal compared to other places at similar price in Peru. You could probably save money and go elsewhere. The pizza was yummy, but you don't stay in a hostel here...

The Pachamama is one of those places where everything and everyone comes together. Great people. Great owners and great food. We stayed here for two nights and ended up having a great time. Our kids had great fun with the cat Tomboy and the dog. Pachamama is a great place to start your Colca adventures! Pro tip: when eating pick...

Great getaway from the hustle and bustle of Peruvian cities. Hostel Pachamama was a great base point for trekking and had super wonderful English speaking staff to help with all your needs. They also look like they really enjoy their jobs which is nice to see. Have their food. You won't regret it. My only thing was the amount of...
