Liked: As a travel writer I stay in Hostel all over the world and Marlons House is an excellent choice in Arequipa. Excellent location, good beds, nice breakfast, some private rooms with TV, spacious dorm rooms, all the staff are fantastic. It is close to laundry service, shops, restaurants. it is an easy walk to the Plaza de Aramas, yet far enough away from the crowded city. This is an excellent choice for staying in Arequipa. I liked Marlons so much I stayed a long time.... Give them a try, you will not be disappointed.

Liked: Decent location though it is 7 blocks and not 3 from the main square. Can check in at any time which is great when you arrive off an overnight bus. Breakfast was good.

Disliked: Strange complaint, but the showers were too hot! There was no way to adjust the temperature as the water came directly from sun heated tanks. We asked to book a taxi for the morning we were leaving (Arequipa apparently has a problem with tourists being robbed in unlicenced taxis) but there was none there for us on the day and no-one to call one for us/ to check out with either. Kitchen could do with a few more utensils.
