We decided to stay here after Pariwana down the road seemed to be fumigating much of the hostel when we tried to check in, despite being late afternoon. Nice place, not a rowdy party hostel. We had a private room, pretty spacious and good showers. Was facing the street though so a little lacking in privacy unless blinds were all...

I stayed here for one night in a private ensuite room. The location is great, very central in Miraflores, you couldn't really get more central. The staff were helpful but the room was very basic and there wasn't any hot water! You can do better in Lima.

Arrived pre-dawn after a long overnight trip and we were told by the unhelpful guy on reception that we would have to wait two hours for the room to be ready. After two hours sitting there (since nothing was open at that early hour), the day shift guy came on, was much friendlier and told us the room was ready...

Stayed here for a few nights before flying into the Amazon. Decent accommodation on a budget. We got a twin room which was spacious enough and the hostels amenities and security are quite good. Also comes with a small free breakfast at a cafe across the street each morning. Not a bad deal for US$60 a night for 2. The...

We had about 12 hours to kill in Lima before our flight so couldn't justify paying for an expensive hotel room if we weren't even going to spend the night. Booked a private room to keep our stuff in and rest. Typical hostel and you get what you get with $40/nt. Location is good, stuff closeby, but stairs were kind...

Stayed here two nights in the 8 bed dorm. It's a clean, laid back hostel with friendly staff. Breakfast is excellent (scrambled eggs, cereal, yogurt, bread, ham, cheese and a griddle to make grilled cheese!) and on site, not sure why some of the other reviews said they had to go to a cafe. The best part is the central...

The staff at this hostel are so helpful: directions, suggestions, breakfast. We got directions to laundromats, to restaurants, to a bookstore. We received tips on how to use the local transportation system (to get to central Lima and Barranco). We had a wonderful time during our short stay. They are on Parque Kennedy, so close to all the action in...

This is a perfect place to stay in Miraflores district. Great location, great staff and nice price. You can find cheaper than this but, with all the services they have, it's a good deal!!! We've stayed in a double room with private bathroom and breakfast. Big room, good hot shower. It also includes Wi-fi. Overall, it was a nice stay...
