Is was a great experience for me to be in Arequipa, the most beautiful place of Peru. The service from the girls and boys working in the hostel were like a warm and lovely family. They helped me a lot and some joined me also in activities. Realy good feeling. The place itself was also good, in a nice coloured... More

I visited Peru for the first time in August and liked staying at Bothy. It was nice, classic and didn't felt like staying away from my home, thanks to the staff. The ambiance is good, airy and view is also good from the roof. The rooms were decent but not upto the mark, as i expected, but all in all,... More

Stayed here during my Peruhop trip up to Lima, and either side of a hike to the Colca Canyon. Staff were friendly and helpful, advising things to do in town, and also helped me book the tour itself at a cheaper price than I could find on the street. They have a laundry service but mixed some of my items... More

I liked everything of bothy hostel. It's super centered, close to everything (square, museums, nightlife, restaurants) The hostel has a very nice terrace where you can eat breakfast (included in the price) with a spectacular view of the volcanoes. The dorms are of only 4 beds, mine had a private bathroom for only 4 soles more, beds were comfy and... More

I feel like I should pre-fix this review with the fact that I am not a student (anymore) and I do wonder whether my expectations are a little high nowadays. Having said that, I've stayed in some great hostels in other places recently which I'd have no hesitation in returning to... We needed to change the dates of our booking... More

This hostel was awful and the security sucked, I got an double room and you could even lock your room with the key. Their laundry services are not trustworty. They have no control over your clothes. They lost a pair of my jeans! My only jeans! They told me that they were very sorry but that they wont compensate me,... More

This hostel was one of the best hostels I've been to in peru. The beds are quite spacious and the dorm room was really warm overnight considering it was quite cold there. The staff were really helpful, they have a great bar, pool table, book exchange etc and it's close to everything you'll need around the city.

I've been in and out of Arequipa for a few months, each time trying out a different place to stay - and finally found my favourite ! The location is good, so are the rooms, always tidy. What made my stay very special though were the memorable nights in the hostel's bar ! I will not forget the fun times... More
