This hostel is just a few steps from the main square. Around the hostel you have many possibilities, for going out at night, choosing one of the restaurants, doing some sightseeing or just relaxing in one of the parks in Arequipa - everything is very close to the hostel.
The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable, the water warm. Breakfast can be enjoyed on the roof terrace - while the sun is shining all day long. Perfect! You can enjoy a book in one of the hammocks...and in the evening you should take a drink in the hostel's bar. If I one day come back to Arequipa, I will choose the Bothy Hostel again. I like! :-)

This is a great little hostel, which is 10 mins walk from the main square. Stayed in a double room, there was a lot of space, and the room was clean and well presented. The staff are the highlight of this place, being rediculously helpful, sorting out problems with our tours and with the internet which went down for a while. So good I am coming back.

Stayed 2 nights in a dorm room. Comfortable beds, lockers for valuables that are big enough to fit a big bag in need. Bathrooms were good, plenty of hot water.

The roof deck for breakfast is amazing, included breakfast is basic but can be supplemented cheaply with other options.

Internet is fast and there are a couple of computers in addition to WIFI. The bar is busier on weekends but generally shut around 12.

Staff are very helpful, especially booking hiking trips and buses on to other destinations!

This hostel is just 5 minutes walk from the main plaza and its surrounded by many options for cheap and good food.
The very friendly and always smiling staff helps you with everything you need. You can book all tours and busses in the hostel and dont have to search in the city.
Breakfast is on the rooftop is included and importent for me is also that the wifi is really fast, so I can skype with family and friends.
There also a nice bar with a TV where you can see all possible sports. The Rooms are clean and cool during the hot days.

I felt like home, especially because of the staff and I was even a bit sad that I had to leave.

i enjoyed my stay in bothy at the time it was quiet although i still enjoyed my time there the staff were friendly, i played in a 6aside tournament in which they asked me if i wanted to play it was a nice atmosphere. Generally the rooms were tidy as well as the bathrooms. The rooftop area for breakfast was nice great. It would of been good for a communal area/tv room there although they had the pub within the hostel which was good for sports and partys in the evening. I recommend bothy!

Room Tip: top floor rooms are spacious
