TripAdvisor Rating


This unique accommodation is located in a completely refurbished colonial mansion in Arequipa’s famed historic district. The hostel was built with the same volcanic rock that gave Arequipa its “white city” nickname. Spacious Family Rooms at the La Casa De Melgar Hostal can accommodate four adults, with cots available for tiny travelers. All rooms feature elegant, yet bold decor, sitting areas, private bathrooms, comfortable bedding and writing desks. A complimentary breakfast buffet with exotic fruits and freshly squeezed juice is served daily. There are multiple restaurants within walking distance of the hostel. Kids can enjoy playing in the accommodation’s beautiful courtyards.

Our room was huge, you could have got a full sized badminton court in it! There were a few sticking point - we had to go to reception to ask for towels, the posters on the walls could do with an update, there were no toiletries save a bar of soap and the room was very dark as the windows (in the doors) were at one end. However, the bed was huge and comfortable, the bathroom was modern, it was all clean and the building and gardens were lovely - sit a while and watch out for the hummingbirds. They speak little English here (and why should they?) but the staff are friendly and helpful. Don't miss the crackingly good Italian restaurant just off the lobby.

Gorgeous Colonial design

The design of this house is top level
every room is different and nicely decorated. Lovely garden en good service! This familyowned Hostal is highly recommended if you ike colonial design.
For dinner try the little Italian restaurant Il Fornellino.
