I had a really pleasant stay here with Adela and Manuel. They are very hospitable and will help recommend places to visit and organise transport for you, which makes everything easier. I spoke very little spanish which made it difficult to converse and get to know Adela and Manuel better, though they do know some English! I also only stayed 2 nights, which felt like i was rushing in and out of the house a lot. I would recommend travellers to stay longer here to have more time to build up a relationship with these kind hosts :) Thanks for having me!
I only stayed with Adela and Manuel for a couple of nights but my time with them was enough to know that they are excellent hosts! Staying with them was like staying in my own home. My room was spacious and quiet, the hot water in the shower was hot, and the breakfasts and conversation was very enjoyable. I had as much privacy as I wanted but there was always somebody to talk to or seek help when I needed it. Their home is situated near a main intersection and it was easy to get around by walking or taking a bus or taxi. I especially liked the view of a volcano just across the street!
Sólo me quedé con Adela y Manuel por 2 noches, pero mi tiempo con ellos fue suficiente para saber que son personas cariñosas! Quedarse con ellos es como quedarse en mi propia casa. Mi habitación era espaciosa y tranquila, el agua caliente en la ducha era caliente, y los desayunos y la conversación era muy agradable. Tenía tanta privacidad como quería, pero siempre había alguien con quien hablar o buscar ayuda cuando la necesitaba. Su casa está situada cerca de una intersección principal y era fácil viajar caminando o tomando un autobús o taxi. Me gustó especialmente la vista de un volcán al otro lado de la calle!
This was an awesome homestay. Very clean home, very nice people. I had all the privacy I wanted, but they were also available whenever I needed them. I talked with Adela as she cooked one night and it was such a great experience, she showed me some of what she was doing. They will do laundry there and provide toast and coffee for breakfast every morning. I highly recommend this place.
Me gustó mi tiempo aquí mucho. Claro que si recomiendo!
5 stars, love Adela and Manuel.
Adela and Manuel were very nice, welcoming and I felt like home. Adela's cooking was delicious. I will definitely stay with them again if I travel to Arequipa again.
Adela and Manuel are two of the kindest and caring individuals you will ever come across. From the moment you arrive they will make you feel like one of their own. They are not only willing, but are genuinely eager to do whatever it takes to ensure you enjoy your stay with them in Arequipa. We stayed with them for one month and could not have asked for a anything more.
Adela and Manuel were wonderful. They were very helpful with information about the area. We were provided a key to lock our room, though we never felt the need to use it. They stored some excess stuff for us as we traveled away from Arequipa for a little over a week. Plus Adela makes some wonderful guava mermelada.

I stayed with Adela & Manuel for 6 months - they became my family. They will walk you to the centre so that you get your bearings on your first day in Arequipa or take you to the bus station to buy your onward ticket. You will have access to the fastest computer in the world. You may think that the location isn't ideal, being on a busy cross road, but really the traffic is no bother and it all disappears at night. But its location means that its very convenient for buses and taxis and its only a 20 minute, safe walk into the centre. There are little parks close by where you can sit quietly in the sunshine. Adela's cooking is fabulous - do ask her to make you caldo de camerones. Also they are more than happy for you to cook your national dish for them. Breakfast is worth getting up for - you won't just get bread and jam.
