Bothy Hostel is a fantastic place to stay on a budget. In fact, it's a great place to stay regardless of budget! It's cozy, with a great layout, and there are lots of things to do. The atmostphere is welcoming, and Raoul, the manager, is service oriented. The same goes for the rest of the staff. There are three floors, and the building is beautiful, with a courtyard and rooftop patio, which are wonderful relaxation spots. Perfect for sipping a beer! Speaking of beer, the fridge is self serve, which makes things easy. There are plenty of activities during the week, such as go-karting, social working, and bbq's to name a few. There is also a bar, with lots of games to play late into the night. Land Adventures is situated in the hostel, and offers great adventure trips. I did the Colca Canyon and river rafting. I'd recommend both. The main square is only a 10 minute walk, and the Santa Catalina monastery even closer. A perfect place to stay all-around.
