We booked up late but got a double bed with own shower, the room was a little tired and shower wasn't great but it was cheap and for the price more than adequate. What sets it apart are the staff, really genuine and did all they could to make us feel welcome. The view up top was good as well,... More

We chose Bothy because it offered a decent double bedroom at a reasonable price. When we arrived at check in we had been given an en-suite room instead of a shared bathroom which was great. We also found that all the main restaurants and sights were just around the corner from us, so the location was ideal. Although we are... More

We stayed in Bothy for two nights and it was a great place to rest our heads. The best part of this hostel is the roof where you can eat a lovely, cheap breakfast whilst looking at Misti volcano. The other great thing is the staff, really friendly and accommodating. We arrived at 6am and they had a room waiting... More

This hostel is located a 5 min stroll from the main square. Near bars and nightclubs as well, very good location! Really friendly and helpful staff, they help you with every doubt and question you may have. Splendid roof top terrace with hammocks and breakfast. Comfy beds and rooms. Excellent choice for backpackers and budget travelers!

moved here from another hostel in Arequipa and it was a good decision. a relatively small hostel but still plenty of opportunities to meet people here. Free breakfast of bread rolls, jam, butter, coffee and tea on their terrace with a great view over the mountains to start the day, lockers with powerpoints in reception and free lugage storage. We...

The location is great, the wifi in the room was ok, and we always had hot water. The braekfeast was very basic (only bread butter, jam and coffe/tea), but you can add 5 soles and get 2 eggs with fried tomato and onion (very tasty!). The staff was the best!

We stayed one night and would have stayed another if the private room had been available following our return from Colca Canyon. Paulo was extremely helpful, showing us around all the facilities when we arrived and storing our luggage while we went on the tour. Well located.
