Bothy is a great place to stay if you want to relax and enjoy your stay at Arequipa

over 3 years ago



Mismo confirmado en Worldpackers, no logré a hacer voluntariado en Bothy. Cuando llegué al hostel, el dueño (Raoul) no estaba. No me aceptaron y tuve que buscar otro lugar para quedar. Volví dos veces más en los días seguintes y nada. Dijeron que Raoul "estaba viajando". Tuve que buscar otro voluntariado por cuenta propria sin conocer nadie en la ciudad. Muy feo...
