Nice hostel for a very good price for a private room. Personal is very friendly and helpful and the hostel is located close to the Big plaza.
The hostel is under reconstruction though - but it is okay.

The hostel was in a great location on a relatively quiet street, right across from the Santa Catalina monastery. Large room and comfortable bed, but no real atmosphere in the hostel. There weren't any other travelers there at the same time so no "hostel vibe". There was only one staff member there and he really didn't speak with us much or provide any helpful info. The hostel could use some sprucing up: paint, general repair, newer accessories. Wifi didn't always work in the room, but did work well in the common areas. In general, the place was a bit shabby.

If you are looking for a reasonable, safe and central location to stay in Arequipa, you can not go to far wrong when in comes to Scandinavia House, 314 Calle Ugarte. From around £5 per person, to be so close to the centre (two blocks) and in a tranquil street is amazing. There are rooms with small balconies overlooking the convent/museum. On my last trip to Peru in March 2015 I stayed in one if these rooms on my first stay, and it was wonderful to open the balcony in the morning and take a view of misty in the sun. There is also a large roof terrace with seating. We used this often to take in the view, take sun, and enjoy food and drink. There is a kitchen you can use any time of the day and two other small courtyards. Some of the rooms share bathrooms (cheaper price) and some have on-suite.

If you take a left and walk over the bridge in 20 minutes you are a Saga Falabella and the cinema complex. If you turn right you are two blocks from the main square (Plaza de Armas). There are lots of shops, tour agencies and restaurants/bars on the next block. My favourite place for Coffe and cake was just around the corner, Capriccio.

The owner and staff are very accommodating. There is a feeling of security as you need to ring for entrance and exit from the hostel. There are a good mix of people at the hostal, couples, young and professional travellers and occasionally families.

Enjoy your stay in Arequipa!

This great hostal is located near the Plaza de arma and offers a superb open courtyard. The rooms are clean and the beds are surprisingly (because we've slept in other hostal before arriving to Arequipa) very confortable. There is an amazing room view of the mountains surrounding Arequipa. The owner is so welcoming and helpful. They are very accommodating which is very appreciate when you are a backpacker.

I highly recommend this hostal.

An international mine and energy convention was happening in Arequipa, Peru, we were coming for one night after, Titicaca Lake and Inca trail,exhausted and full of bags. The Scandinavia House sent us an email promising us a room in a near hotel since they were overbooked. We arrived at a "House" being painted, not a Hostal facility. The manager brought us to the Hostal where we supposed to stay, finding out that the rooms she allegedly "paid for" were not even booked nor available. The Scandinavia House manager got into a fight with the receptionist of the hostal and the police were called (unbelievable).
We grab the bags and scaped, got a cab in a completely unknown city, and with the taxi radio and the operator help, cruised the city for a place to stay unless we had to sleep in the Arequipa airport. We fund a backpacking house willing to take us for the night, we felt unsafe and very scared. On top of all that the Scandinavia House reprted us as a no show with booking.com for the reservation.
