    Superb

    Stayed here for the second time in 2months. The staff remembered us and as always they were super helpful and accommodating! Melina at reception was so helpful and friendly, it made our stay very enjoyable. Manuel at the bar was great fun and very hospitable. The beds are a good size and very comfortable. The free breakfast is bread and tea with marmalade which is plenty to get you started for the day. Would highly reccomend staying here, kick back on the roof terrace and relax!

    We loved the Bothy! The staff were all so friendly and welcoming and we didn't want to leave! The hostel itself is pretty cool - decorated with bright murals and a few different areas to lounge around, including a rooftop terrace with tables and chairs, sun loungers, hammocks and a mini pool. Breakfast is also served on the rooftop and is very good. The William Wallace bar is cheap with a good vibe and different themes each night. Rooms are clean and comfortable with hot showers! Great find :)

    Fabulous

    The hostel and its facilities are a bit old school. The building is very old, therefore has a nostalgic atmosphere. The rooms are ok, however the plugin sockets are very loose, so the charging adapters keep falling out or just lose contact. You can charge your device in special lockers at the reception. During my trips between Arequipa and Colca Canyon, I kept returning to this hostel because of the good prices, but mostly because of the friendly staff.

    Very Good

    21 Aug 2018
    Good value for money- the location is the best thing about this hostel, you’re close to everything. Breakfast wasn’t great- literally a sweet piece of bread with butter or jam. I asked for milk with my coffee and was handed a tin of condensed milk? The rooms are clean. Unfortunately there are no bath mats so the bathroom floors are soaking and then the room floors are wet too. I slipped very badly because of a puddle in my room and cracked my head against a wall so be careful!!
