Relaxed friendly attitude, good for studying, full use of all amenities, some shared meals, respectful of other guests. We like to have fun but its not a party house. Please note that smoking is only permitted outside on the terrace and not in the rooms
House: An amazing place ! The house was very nice, and the host (I'm sorry I can't remember her name, Victoria maybe?) was ADORABLE !! So nice with us. It was maybe a little bit cold in the room but everything else was perfect :). ALSO the most important thing, this place is SO well located. We only took the taxi for the mirador and everything else by walk. We loved Arequipa, bad luck we went sick and couldn't have seen the colca...
Thanks Gawain! :)
Great welcome from the hostel keeper, Roberto. Really good central location. Quiet. Lovely roof terrace with good views.
Difficult to find, incorrect address on AirBnB and no directions from Gawain. We had to ring his U.S. number to get directions. Showers were clean, but not warm. One bathroom (with only toilet inside) between several rooms meant waiting each morning.
Gawain has a really lovely home right in the center of Arequipa. The views from the roof deck are spectacular! His brother-in-law Roberto handled our arrival and he was a really nice guy. There were plenty of guidebooks and info on recommended restaurant to try.
Gawain was out of town, so his brother-in-law, Robert, was there to greet us when we got in. The home was charming--especially the rooftop terrace, and very close to the main square, museums, etc. We had a lovely stay.
We had a wonderful stay at this special place. Roberto was super helpful and friendly, the room was well equipped, clean and had comfortable beds. A nice and hot shower. It is a lovely place with a warm and friendly athmosphere.
Positives: Robert was great. He was attentive and very nice. He was happy to give us suggestions. The apartment was clean and comfortable. The rooftop terrace is really nice with fantastic views of the mountains surrounding Arequipa.
Negatives: Everyday we were there (3 days) there were multiple church services projected over a loudspeaker that was noisy.
