it was just like home, more like a flat with a central eating and lounge so you can help but mix. Marco made me so welcome, provided me with maps for restaurants etc he had personally visited to verify they were ok. He even took a couple of us to a local market where he goes to eat cerviche. Amazing...

Located near the junction of miraflores and barranco but located in Surco district, this is a two room (4bed dorm per room) apartment with kitchen facilities. Affordable price. But the best part of it is the host Marco who was very welcoming and helpful with directions, attractions, where to eat and how to get to attractions. We ended up taking...

A great hostel! I was going to stay here only for two nights before going up to the Andean highlands, but I immediately requested for extra two days of stay upon arrival.

Thanks Marco for a great stay! Beds are good, rooms are clean and its in a quiet neighbourhood. Rooftop bar if you are interested. About 30-40 min walk from Miraflores - perfect to get away from the noise but not too far away either. Marco, the owner is extremely helpful with everything

This is indeed not a hostel but rather a home-stay. For 4 people we got a 4 bed dormitory for our own. Fortunately we were the only guests so we had a bathroom only for ourselves. The room is VERY small but clean. The property is perfectly organized with a lot of information on anything you could imagine to ask....
