I can highly recommend Maria Elenas place! I have been there for the first two weeks of my stay in Arequipa and Maria Elena and her husband gave me a perfect welcome and helped me in everything I needed. The room is clean and is connected to a private bathroom. You share the house with Maria Elena & Pepe and some exchange students from Argentina, Peru or other countries. I felt like home there, thanks to the lovely hosts. It's a short walk to the inner city of Arequipa, you can find everything you need in two malls and a big marketplace nearby, and the house is located in an area of Arequipa where I always felt safe, so for me the location couldn't have been better. Thank you Maria Elena & Pepe for your great hospitality and kindness!

Maria Elena and Pepe are such nice people! They made me feel at home from the beginning until the end of my stay. She always tried to make sure everything was OK for me. The house is located in a nice residential area just a short taxi ride away from the historical center, or a 15/20 min walk. The room was really nice and clean. I had my own bathroom and toilet. There is a nice terras in front but also at the back of the house and on the roof, with a beautiful view of Misti. All together I would definitely recommend to stay here!!

I had a wonderful stay at Maria Elenas place! I arrived quite early and was able to get in and was greeted by breakfast and a nice conversation. The room is nice and with all the blankets you need and with a private bathroom this place is ideal if you want some comfort and relaxing. Maria Elena was so helpful throughout my stay, she took me to the city, helped at the turist information and helped with taxis, even before 3 am in the morning! On top of that I felted so welcomed, and even though my spanish is far from perfect, Maria Elena was very patient and understanding> I was even allowed to have my bag at their place while doing Colca Canyon and was welcomed back for coffee on my return! This is an amazing place and I would love to stay here again!

Maria and Pepe are everything one could hope for in a host, welcoming (at any hour of arrival) and hospitable to the maximum. They are there to enhance a wonderful experience in the city of Arequipa. The accommodations themselves are spacious and everything is as promised. The added benefit of sharing with the university students that also live in the residence is quite special. Very recommendable

I enjoyed my stay with Maria who is very warm and welcoming. The room is located in a quiet neighbourhood and has everything you need including an en suite bathroom and desk for a laptop. The house is home to a number of students and a great chance to practice your Spanish over breakfast. There are lots of restaurants nearby offering very affordable prices. Taxis to the centre are around 5 or 6 Soles. Highly recommended.

I absolutely loved staying here. everyone in the house is warm and funny and nice. I arrived in the evening and was invited immediately to sit and chat in the sitting room. Maria Elena called down her husband and all the students living in her house to join. My Spanish was at 60% competency but we managed and I enjoyed talking. the next day since I had no plans, I was invited to explore the entire city on foot. I wish I had more than 2 nights to spend and will absolutely stay here when I return to Arequipa.
