Nice but NO hot water

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 26, 2007

This hostel was located in a really excellent location. It was a couple of blocks away from the Monasterio de Santa Catalina and less then a ten minute walk from the main Plaza. Nobody at the front desk ever spoke any english but they were very happy to help us anyway they could. Breakfast (included) was served every morning on the rooftop patio which included cocca tea, bread and freshly sqeezed juice.

My main complaint is that there was NEVER any hot water. It was always lukewarm at best. I believe the water was heated by the sun from huge black drums on the roof. So be prepared. Otherwise the stay was pleasant.

Nicest Staff in Arequipa

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 28, 2006

Las Torres de Ugarte Hostel was an awesome inexpensive place to stay in Arequipa. The staff is excellent! They are more than accomodating, they actually go beyond what is called for. When my husband and I came back from our climb up El Misti, it was Good Friday and most of the businesses were closed. We were starving and exhausted. The young woman at the front desk, Maria, went beyond the call of duty. She assured us she would find us dinner (without us asking) and she even paid for the bill because we had no cash on us and let us pay her the next day. When the food arrived she put it on a silver platter and gave us real silverware and brought it up to our room. She even called an hour later to make sure our meal was satisfying. We really felt like we were getting room service in a hostel of all places. Furthermore, with the price of your room, you get free breakfast every morning. For a matrimonial room with a private bath and cable, it cost US $25/night. The room is very clean and quiet and they replace your towels and make up the room each day. Even more bonus is that there is a nice rooftop area to lounge with nice views of the city and the volcanoes. Free internet is also provided near the lobby. The hostel itself is adjacent to the Santa Catalina Monestary and just a few blocks from the Plaza de Armas. They will store your bags if you plan on climbing El Misti or Chachani. With the staff, location and price you can't beat a stay here.

Unique Quality: -Rooftop patio
-Breakfast each morning
-Internet
-Luggage storage

Directions: Across the Street From the Santa Catalina Monestary
