We stayed here for 2 nights, Nice clean big room 3p with bathroom. Ask for a room in the back, our room was located at the front where there is a very busy and noisy street, lots of honking cars, starts very early.. But overall value for money

The terrace is the among the nicest I have ever seen. Live plants, sunlight, shade, soft couch, tables. The staff is so friendly. The prices are great! The facilities are very clean. Such a relaxing experience. I felt so comfortable here. Not a true backpackers' hostel at all (I visited during low season) but if you are in need of...

I didn't have a good time the owner or guy I talked with online lied to me and strung me along, bathroom is only clean right after its cleaned otherwise its nasty, like poop on seat! Had to ask for hot water at least once. I didn't feel safe here. Items went missing. No fire escape and sometimes it takes...

I stayed at La Casona De Jerusalen for 2 nights and really enjoyed my time. For only 30soles/night you can get a single room with access to a clean/warm shower. The wifi works incredibly well and the Hostal owner/workers are lovely. I would certainly recommend staying here!

I was promised a double room if a friend of mine arrived, if not i would stay in a single one. They not only didn't have the double available, but they charged full single room because i left there the bags for 1 hour. (I had to search another place for me and my friend)

I had a couple of reservations with this TA-recommended place. I'd originally booked through Hostelbookers, the man who checked me in insisted on charging me the deposit I'd already paid (he spoke no English) and he put me in a small, dank, musty room that was most unpleasant. I was across the courtyard from the bathroom, which, every time I...

Location is also good I should add although I would check out other budget accommodations closer to the plaza. The beds were very, very uncomfortable, lamp didn't work and zero ventilation in the room. I have stayed here before and the room was fine - perhaps be sure you can have a room with its own wc.

Dear Guest Thanks for your review, it only helps us get better. We have checked the beds and have decided that even though that is not a common request or complain, we will get better beds for that room. The lamp that you mention was working fine before your arrival, so we wonder what exactly happened to the lamp during...

First,like many hostels in the historical district, the rooms above the street are quite noisy. Traffic noise can start as early as 4am and continue quite late. If you're looking for peace and quiet avoid these above street rooms. . The second problem I have with La Casona is the advertising of free breakfast on the Tripadvisor web site. After...

Dear Guest We must inform everyone that what you are saying is not true because: 1st We do not advertise -free breakfast- as we don`t even have a premium profile on trip advisor to do that, only paying profiles get description and so on. So you are mistaken one of more than 3 hostels that have copied our name. 2nd...

We stayed here one night to explore arequipa. Very charming place located close to the Plaza del Armas - ca. 7 mins of walking. We stayed in a double room with private bath for 110 soles per night. After check out at 10 am we had the possibility to store our backpacks and to spend the night waiting there until...

We got a room with 2 twin beds and private bathroom on the first night and then they moved us to a room with 2 twin beds but shared bathroom on the second night (because thats what we originally paid for). The rooms and bathrooms were clean, no heating but it wasn't that cold. The staff there were very kind....
