We spent one night in Puno and the family that runs the place is incredibly nice. The matriarch will stay in my memory for awhile, as her kindness was unexpected. She helped us book a tour, took us to the exact spot, made sure we had enough blankets for the cold night, made sure the tea was good, etc. The...

Stayed there for one night during my visit in lake Titicaca. Booked the 2 days trek throw the hostel, which was very good worth the money. Although their English was challenging, the stuff was very kind and helpful. Nice place for a short stay.

Me and my friends were unfortunately very disappointed with our stay at Bothy. The advertisement promised " a great breakfast" with pancakes and hot showers, which was what attracted us, but we received neither. The hot water in the shower ended after 10 minutes, and even though the breakfast was to be served from 06.10-09.00 and was to include pancakes,...

I have no complaints about this hostel. The wifi was fast and available everywhere. The staff is wonderfully friendly. They let us check in early and hang out for the rest of the day while we waited for our bus. Yummy breakfast and clean rooms and hot showers. I recommend this place, especially for the good price!

It is not really clos to the center but you can get to the main road with a lot of restaurants and shops in around 5min. The hostel is basic, but absolutely clean and the staff is very nice and helps you if you have questions.

It took us a while to find the hostel as it's a bit out of the way, but when we did we were really pleased! The staff were super friendly and generous, even going so far as to over us breakfast as soon as we arrived. Speaking of which, the breakfast was one of the best I've had in south...

This is one of the best hostels I have visited. A simple, well furnished, and handily located hostel run by an incredibly friendly and helpful family. The included breakfasts on the roof terrace in the morning are a real highlight. Fully recommend!
