Reviewed 19 December 2016

I stayed 3 nights on the 3rd floor. The room was small, there was mold on the roof and bad smell in the room. The bed was old and noisy. The breakfast was poor, very poor. The owners are nice people. I can't recommend. On the neighbourhood are many better choices.

A very well-run hostel, clean and tidy rooms and bathrooms. Capped off by a fantastic host, Marco, who was very knowledgeable on the city. I was impressed by his patience as he guided me through all the important sites in Lima (where to buy tickets for the metropolitano, exchange money, all the sites locally and elsewhere in the city etc)....

The owner is so kind and helpful. This is my first time traveling solo, and I feel safe. Miraflores, the district this hostel is in, is filled with helpful people. Without any Spanish (really horrible Spanish), I was able to shop, exchange money, and get directions. Great place to stay!

I stayed in the hostel for a night in Lima looking for some relax and it really covered my purpose. The hostel is a small three floor house with not many rooms within a quiet neighbourhood in Miraflores district. And so the atmosphere was quite calmed. If you are looking for party better go to the hostels in Kennedy square,...

A safe but basic place to stay. The host Marco knows everything about Lima and will tell you the safe places to go for an affordable price. He gives good recommendations. Good breakfast was included. Room could have been cleaner and there was a distinct urine smell in the rooms. There were no racks / hooks to hang clothes and...

Lovely place to stay in Miraflores within walking distance to Parque Kennedy, grocery stores, restaurants, Clinica Anglo Americana, and other tourist destinations. Only 6 private rooms keeps this home cozy in a residential district. 3rd floor has a balcony while 2nd floor offers a bigger, nicer bathroom. We stayed twice, once on each floor. Both bathrooms always had HOT water....

This place is great. Marco, the owner, is friendly but not overbearing, and he is VERY easy to work with if anything goes awry in your plans. He speaks English well. His dog, Sumaq, is awesome. Open Guest House is quiet, clean, simple, and very comfortable. The kitchen is basic, but functional. Prices are quite reasonable. I highly recommend this...

We went to stay in that place , but did not suit my needs since the bathroom were shared with three rooms. However Marco was able to refer us to another b&b close to his. We really want to thank you. Since the place you sent us is what we were looking for and would recommend your nice bed and...
