It was very clean and the rooms were spacious. Good location near the centre of the old town. The staff didn't speak much English but were very helpful and pleasant and it was not a problem.

Close to Plaza de Armada but far enough away from main streets for a quiet nights sleep. Plants of out door space for relaxing. Alot of common rooms to socialise or play in. One of best Hostels stayed in globally out of 170. Breakfast was filling and not stringy.

The host is extremely helpful and friendly, and speaks perfect English. At one point the shower water was running cold and when I spoke with him he had it fixed immediately. Our room was super spacious and very clean. The breakfast was simple, yogurt, rolls, juice and coffee but completely acceptable. It was about 3 blocks to the pedestrian walkway and an additional three blocks to the main square. I would definitely recommend Villa Melgar to anyone looking for a place to stay in Arequipa.
