“Great 4th of July Party!”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

Yes, we were actually in Bothy for the 4th of July, where they had a great BBQ party for the resident Americans. Quite fun. The bilingual staff was great, and were even warm to my desire to practice my conversational Spanish. Good location, great staff, this place is stellar.

The staff at Bothy were so nice and helpful, it made a world of a difference, especially when my friend fell and needed to go to the hospital to get stitches. It was amazing to have such a supportive and knowlegable staff help us get to where we needed to be. Plus the view from the rooftop is amazing!

Room Tip: Try and get a room on the third floor, much quieter and you have a view of the volcano!

Aside from being a little slow during my stay, Bothy was great!! Internet is pretty fast and was available in my room, the showers were generally hot (my first shower went back and forth from pleasant to freezing), and the bilingual staff is more than willing to chat you up! They knew my name by the 2nd day and I even spent the day hanging out with he bartender. My only qualm would be lack of other travelers, but that had more to do with the season then the business itself. Looking for a fun place where they organize events and offer a clean, safe spot, STAY HERE!

There's nothing bad to say about the Bothy. Nice beds, good and hot showers, enough breakfast with nice coffee (with milk!)... a nice TV-room with an amazing choice of dvds... and whatever else you want from a hostel. The terrace on the rooftop has an amazing view on the city & landscape, there is a guest-kitchen on the roof as well.. And although there is nearly no reason to leave the hostel, if you still want to, Arequipas main plaza is just around the corner.
And if you have any problem, Raul will help you fix it! Totally motivated he organizes tours, gives advices or helps you to get drunk in the bar, playing beerpong and giant-jenga all night.
And although I stayed in the room next to the bar we all slept there without problems.

Best part for me was the really beautiful old house... which they are investing a lot of work in to keep it in shape. But its worth it! Not only for the view... I would definitely go back! And I'm jealous of everybody of you who is going there soon...

I moved to Bothy after a brief (and dissatisfied) stay at another hostel. The staff here are genuinely nice and helpful (in my opinion very high on list of factors affecting the quality of stay anywhere) Angie took the time to look for, book and print my flights towards Mancura and found a better deal (timings & price) than the local travel agent. She was a true angel. There is a nice roof terrace with views of mountains, and great friendly, only a couple of blocks from the main square, whilst being able to sleep at night. I would deffinately stay here again.
