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

I stayed in July of 2013 in the 3 bunk beddorm next to the bar as well as the 3 bunk bed dorm above the reception. Although this place was relatively cheap many things were terrible. The rooms were musty and bits of ceiling and ceiling dust was always fell onto the tops of the beds. Needless to say it... More

We stayed at the Bothy as part of the Peru Hop, for two nights either side of a tour to the Colca Canyon. Room: We stayed in the matrimonial with private bathroom.

For me and my husband this was a very exciting holiday in arequipa. The hotel and it's service was nearly perfect. The food was good but not over the top but in exchange for that the trip we did with Bothy Hostel was fenomenal! Thanks for wonderful holidays!

The Bothy hostel is not ideal, but it is the best backpacker hostel I've stayed at in Peru. It has a stylish entrance area with covered yard. Some more open areas in the 2nd floor inner yard. It has a bar with crooked pool table and a max size jenga bricks, and awesome parties on weekend. It has a rooftop... More
