Very friendly and helpful staff. I liked the free breakfast and the good location in walking distance to everything important. The whole hostel could use a bit of renovation work, although it was spotlessly clean. Be careful if you book a tour that it really gets booked: Only because I later talked to an employee by coincidence we discovered that her colleague hadn't booked my tour.

Really nice staff. The place has good potential but it needs TLC... Our room had damp all over the ceiling so it smelt and the plaster fell off. It also leaked. It'd be great if it got spruced up.

Hi! Thank you for your comment about Bothy Hostel! We are sorry, if the room was not as expected. It is rain season at the moment in Arequipa and we will renew the rooms as fast as possible, but for this we have to wait until the rain stops. We are always trying to improve our services and we hope you had a nice time in the Hostel and Arequipa!

The main problem is no WiFi outside reception. The mattress was ancient even by Peru hostel standards. I was cold the first night. The high rooms quiet and the terrace lovely.

I really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere at Bothy. The staff is very friendly and helfpul. The receptionist is super sweet and so helpful. She knows the city well and can give you directions to just about anywhere you want to go! Having breakfast each morning on the rooftop terrace was great. Coffee, bread, butter and jam are included but, the breakfast chef, can fix you up a delicious breakfast for a very reasonable price. Breakfast options include pancakes, eggs and omelettes. Yum!

I found Bothy Hostel to be a friendly and relaxed hostel which was a great place to meet other travellers. The hostel has pleasant common areas, which encourages people to meet and spend time together. The staff were a mix of locals and travellers who were working temporarily at the hostel. The hostel is conveniently located, close to the Monasterio, multiple restaurants, shops, and travel agencies, and maybe seven minutes walk from the Plaza de Armas.

The owner went out of his way to be helpful, really friendly and chill vibe. The private rooms were spacious and shower was clean. The rooftop hangout is cool too
