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 :)

El hostel está super, las tareas son sencillas y los turnos tranquilos, y el equipo del hostel está genial. Ademas de eso, el hostal está cerca de bancos, mercados y comercio, una cuadra de la plaza de armas y pocos metros de las principales atracciónes históricas de la ciudad, el barrio también es super tranquilo

Peters Hostel fue nuestro hogar en Arequipa! Tanto los anfitriones Mary y Daniel, como Marcos y Fer y todos los voluntarios se sintieron familia. Las tareas son simples y los horarios los acordados.
Sin dudas volveriamos 🙌😄

Peter's Hostel es un excelente voluntariado para [email protected] los viajeros que anden en busca de un lugar cómodo y agradable para conocer gente y el centro histórico, ya que queda solo a unas cuadras de la Plaza de Armas y centros culturales. Me encantó estar ahí unas semanas, así que lo recomiendo :)! Gracias Mary y Daniel
