Lovely welcoming place, and the friendliest and most helpful staff of any hostel i stayed at in Peru especially DANA... A great common space in which to meet other travellers. The location is very central. I only stayed one night but would definatly go back if I was in Arequipa again. The view from the roof terrace is to die... More

We booked one night at Bothy between a late bus and an early flight. About one week before the bus ride in, we emailed them asking for pick up from the bus - a service they advertise on their website. We had not heard anything back two days prior to our trip, so we followed up. They ended up emailing... More

I was very pleasantly surprised by my stay at this hostel. We stumbled upon it by accident but it was exactly what I was looking for during my time in arequipa. The hostel is pretty big - 3 floors- but it doesnt feel liek that at all. There are just the right amount of rooms and a lot of places... More

I found Bothy Hostel to be a friendly and relaxed hostel which was a great place to meet other travellers. The hostel has pleasant common areas, which encourages people to meet and spend time together. The staff were a mix of locals and travellers who were working temporarily at the hostel. The hostel is conveniently located, close to the Monasterio,... More

Even if I stayed for a day I was very pleased with this hostel. It was recommended by some people I met is Cuzco. I was warmly welcome by the staff. The ambiance is also really nice. You enter in a colorful courtyard painted in purple. There is a board proposing the different activities that the hostel hosts. It as... More

We stayed there for 2 nights. It offers clean rooms, compfy beds, hot showers and a great view from the roof top terrace. Wifi works only at the reception area, but they have a desktop computer with fast internet which was a great help. Furthermore I want to thank Jesus who made as a fresh and tasty breakfast every morning.... More

We had the best breakfast on the roof top which Jesus prepared wonderfully and we were able to go out the night before with some people from the hostel which was so much fun as well! The hostel will remain... More
