The best thing about this hostel are its staff. They are all really helpful and friendly. I do remember one of the staff, Carolina, inviting me along to an international night at a nearby bar/club which was awesome. All the staff (inc. Carolina) recommended great places to eat....chula a la ca marines was delicious!

A group of us left our backpacks in this hostel, we were part of the Peru hop tour, while visiting the Colca canyon. When we returned a number of items had gone missing from a few peoples backpacks, when we told the staff about the items that were gone nothing much was done to explain why the items were gone....

Dear James, the receptionists at bothy hostel always take into much consideration a guest's need! if something like this really happened, I doubt noone did anything to solve the problem. the storage room is a small room next to reception. To access storage room, you have to enter reception. We have 24H attendance, receptionist leaves the desk only to bring... More

Before I begin this review I would like to make it clear that Bothy was not a 'bad' hostel. It just disappointed me as I felt it had more potential. We booked prior to arrival, arrived at 8am and our room wasn't ready until 1pm. This was not an issue as we were aware that check-in was not until 1pm.... More

Stayed here a while ago and am thinking about going back in the future. There's so much to do in the area, the views of mountains are amazing, and the hostel has a cozy atmosphere. Thanks Elisa for the great recommendations!

Great hostel, very clean and tidy, loads of fun activities, but also quite, relaxing environment. The staff is very organised and professional, especially the wonderful Italian receptionist, well travelled and always available to help, and the sweet Carolina, who's simply the best receptionist in Arequipa and probably the whole Peru'. If I'll ever be back to Bothy Hostel it will... More

This hostel was perfect for relaxing after long way in the bus trip from Lima. Internet works well, staff are kind and care about you. And they clean well everyday. Also you can get good information about tours in the reception desk. And they got a bar inside!

I have only wonderful things to say about Bothy...me and my friend arrived slightly terrified at 4.30 am after a jaunt with a murderous taxi driver and were immediately checked in and shown to our room to recover! Breakfast is on the beautiful terrace and you can pay a bit more for some nice scrambled eggs. The terrace is blissful... More
