Hi! the bus company is Cruz del Sur...recommend it for night trips over 6 hours...but it is significantly more expensive than other companies. Your choice. :) the hostel in Arequipa is Bothy Hostel and the tour company to book for the canyon trek is Land Adventures...highly recommended! Enjoy Peru!
