Peters Hostel was a great experience and my first volunteer experience. Daniel and Mari were super receptive and friendly at all times, Arequipa is a beautiful and super quiet city, and the Hostel is one block from Plaza de Armas. The other volunteers also made the experience pleasant and I would definitely recommend it.

Very welcoming feel by the volunteers here, was looked after when I wasn’t feeling well like I was family :)
I was only there a week but they were willing to be flexible with the hours so long as I got the job done.
Everyone is willing to share recommendations and show you the best spots in the city.
Great location in town, 2 minutes from the main square
The facilities were basic but provided what you needed, showers were cold but laundry could be done there which was a bonus.
Do recommend :)

La estadía en Peter’s fue excelente. Daniel y Mery fueron extremadamente amables y simpáticos. Las tareas eran súper sencillas y te queda bastante tiempo para conocer la ciudad. El Hostel está a media cuadra de la plaza de Armas, una locación increíble y con ellos también puedes conseguir tours a precio costo. Ideal para no perderte de nada. En la cocina compartida puedes preparar tus comidas y la verdad siempre hicimos cenas en conjunto con otros voluntarios y disfrutamos de muchos platillos internacionales. Esperamos volver! Los llevamos en el❤️ Gracias!

Peter's Hostal é um lugar incrível! A localização é privilegiada, no centro histórico de Arequipa, perto da Praça de Armas e supermercados, farmácia, tudo que se pode precisar. Também é um hostel tranquilo, ideal pra fazer amizade e conhecer gente de todo mundo, pratiquei inglês e aprendi espanhol. Mari e Daniel são flexíveis e disponíveis para tirar dúvidas. Tive um problema de família durante minha estadia e foram muito amáveis, me ajudaram muito. No dia a dia, dividimos as tarefas com Fernando e Marcos que também nos dão suporte e junto com os outros voluntários criam um ambiente familiar
