One of the coolest hostels i've seen, with some of the best staff you'll ever find! Ronan and Miguel (the bar staff) went out of their way to set up a bbq for us for australia day, and seeing how there were only the 3 of us being aussies the whole setup was something we didn't expect. The bar staff really made our time at Bothy that much better. It's the perfect mix of party and chill, would recommend Bothy to anyone hitting up Arequipa!

Loved this hostel. Very colorful and hip. The rooms were great. I stayed in a 4 bed dorm at the very top floor. I would recommend this too, because the music from the bar gets pretty loud at night and it's not gonna stop until midnight. So, if you are doing a Colca Canyon tour and you are supposed to wake up at 2:30am... Best of luck! The breakfast good, you can also buy breakfast from them for a pretty cheap price. The wifi was really good. The bathrooms are private, and location wise PERFECT.

This hostel was one of the best, if not the best I've stayed at in SA. Had an amazing vibe, staff were super helpful, especially Paulo who ran the front desk and was able to help with whatever you needed. The bar was great if you wanted to fire it up, but as there were doors into it, you could also sleep soundly in the rooms on the second and third floors where you couldn't hear the party unlike almost every other hostel with a bar. I highly recommend this hostel if you are staying Arequipa!

The hostel was great , it has a beautiful roof terrace with a pretty much panoramic view of arequipa and the mountains. The breakfast servicw was great and the owner was very helpful and is a lovely kind woman!! The thing I enjoyed most though was the parties that the bar team put on ....with the manager attending to our every need from music to games to drinks ect ect , and making the nights great fun! There were regular beer pong tournaments , great music and some fun drinking games.!!

I spend a few nights in Bothy Hostel, and it's the 2nd time I come here! The hostel itself is beautiful, colorful and well organized! Having the breakfast on the roof top terrace, with the view of the Misti ( the Volcano) is priceless! You can also use the kitchen, and have a beer in the bar if you feel like it. There is always hot showers, dorms and bathrooms are clean and the staff is nice and always helpful. The location is also very good, in the city center, and in a safe area!

Just booked one night because I wasn't sure how I'd like it - ended up staying almost a week. So close to the center of Arequipa that there is plenty to see and plenty to eat. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed and open. Rooftop patio for the win!

The twin room was incredibly loud as there were only shutters to keep out the noise of the main road. Hardly slept because of the constant noise!
