Great breakfast, clean dorms and nice staff. I recommend.
I like the atmosphere of this hotel in Arequipa. Pool table, fun evenings.
Very cute design, secuer and in a easy walking distance to plasa de armas. Uncomplicated staff, cool roofterrace with breakfast and a nice view over arequipa
The view at the roof. Close to inner city attractions
Great Location and comfortable room
Great roof top bar and free breakfast of bread and jam and coffee. Other hostels do better free breakfasts though, like friendly APQ, who do amazing pancakes or scrambled eggs! They have a bar, very funky with reasonably ish priced drinks. Pool table is terrible though, not enough balls, tiny pockets and big slopes on the table. When the showers were hot, they were great. But they were not always hot. WiFi was great!
Nice clean hostel, has a bar but unfortunately wasnt very busy when i was here so didn't spend time there! Staff were lovely, and good hostel overall :)
The atmosphere was great for travelers with the pub down stairs, hammocks on the roof, movie room, and incredibly friendly staff.
helpful staff and nice clean place. we had some complains about a guest in our room and therefore wanted to change room.. this was totally fine with the staff..
Had to wear a wristband so the staff knew who to let in so there was no chance of randomers wandering in. Lots of people staying while we were there but not a particularly party atmosphere in the evenings. Rooms were pretty small but all had lockers, and there were lockable places you could charge your phone/ipod.
Clean, ok breakfast
the safety, they had really clever lockers with chargepoints in it
The hostel is centrally located in Arequipa. The Staff were very helpful and informative, and dealt with queries swiftly.
Great Location. Helpful staff.
Shared areas were really nice, there's a toasted sandwich for 3 Soles, there are soooo many DVDs to watch. The staff were really nice
friendly staff with good info. plenty of tours on offer and bus transfers. good location, wifi very good in my room aswell. would recommed and stay again.
Location and options and good staff
Fresh brewed coffee, friendly staff, good beds and location. I really enjoyed my time here at Bothy. It was quiet and very clean. The staff are cleaning constantly. All of the staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. I ended up with a dorm and bathroom to myself which was very nice. I would recommend this place to anyone and plan on staying here on my way back through Arequipa. Breakfast (pancakes and fruit) is served on thier rooftop patio with a nice view of the city and surrounding volcanoes.
The staff at Bothy's were amazing! everything we asked of them was done straight away and they were always friendly and happy to help. Before taking a shower, I asked about the hot water and they always turned it on for me. They made us feel very welcome at all times! There is a great movie room to watxh the dvds that they loan you.
Nice hostal, good location and easy to meet people.
Overall average hostel. Friendly staff and cute dog, but some of the bath rooms are in serious need of face lift / clean. Saying you are a listed building is not an excuse to avoid fixing exposed electrics, and grubby bath mould.Pancakes for breakfast are refreshing change for some, but fruit would be welcome.Please please don´t play the music so loud in the morning in the bar / reception!
We really enjoyed our stay, the staff were really helpful and knowledgable.
Was a little disappointed. Beds are comfy and rooms are clean... but. Breakfast is bad (except for the good pancakes) - showers are at best luke warm - atmosphere is boring - why do the staff start playing loud music at 6am?? Location is good, just a few minutes to the main sights/bars/etc. and where possible the staff are helpful. Not the best hostel, but I guess its not the worst either.
great hostel, very close to everything. Dorm rooms don't have locks so make sure you use the lockers for your small valuables. Hostel complex itself is very secure. Very helpful staff, not all speak English so get your information in the day time. Hammocks are bliss.
