Firstly they offer an early breakfast which is at 6.10am, useful for when you have early trips and buses, that's helpful we thought. Until it got to 6.50am and there's no sign of breakfast (it's only bread and jam anyway!) and our bus was leaving at 7.00. I even volunteered to go and get the food from the shop but...

I had to make a reservation at the last minute, and Bothy was the only one available. It's not pretty, but close enough to the city centre. Breakfast was decent. But bathrooms are outdoors, so it's not really exciting to go out on the cold to take a shower...

The hostel is just a few streets from the main square, but as Puno is not the nicest of places, its good to be away from all that noise. The hostel is very secure with doors which get properly locked throughout the day and night. The showers were warm, the beds were comfy and clean. I liked the kitchen and...

This hostel was not great, arriving at night to an strange doorway didn't put you at ease, however the staff did try to help although their English was not that great and our Spanish not fluent but they were friendly enough. However the hostel was not very clean, there were no good social spaces at all, and there was only...

Clean hostel offering low cost lodging with kitchen facilities, WiFi, tv room, outdoor terrace, free breakfast and hot drinks all day. A lot smaller and quieter than the bothy in arequipa but definitely sufficient for a night or two. Dorm room costs only 23 soles(less than 5 pounds) and extra bedding is provided if you are cold.

A simple hostel which is a couple of minutes walk from the main square. Whilst it's through a couple of back streets they feel safe and I had no issues. Very friendly staff, who are helpful and have fairly good English. Small lockers in reception for valuables, but no big lockers as with their sister hostel in Arequipa.

Very accommodating staff, friendly, though not necessarily english speaking. Room was basic but as expected. Would recommend to others, though I'm sure other hostels in Puno have similar / better quality facilities also.

Although not as big or as well known as its sister hostel in Arequipa, Puno's Bothy offers excellent service, spotless rooms and again amazing helpful staff. There is a communal TV room upstairs beside the kitchen and residents are permitted to use kitchen facilities also which is great. Complimentary teas and coffes all day and free access to 2 computers...

Puno is a very cold city but when i reach Bothy I felt a warm atmosphere. Everybody treat me like a queen they were really nice and friendly. The room was perfect comfortable and clean. I only have problem with the bathrooms but everything else was perfect. I met bunch of new friends and have the best time in Puno.

The dorm room floor was very dirty. The bed was comfortable & I slept well. There were enough blankets. There are 2 showers for the whole hostel - this seems rather inadequate to me, especially given that most people are getting up at the same time for trips and could led to a lot of waiting. Hot water was available,...
