I've stayed here on 2 separate occasions and it has been fine both times. It is a cool-looking old place, but kept clean and has a lush courtyard. For the price, everything is a very good value and it is in perfect walking distance of most restaurants around Miraflores. Try El Chinito a block away for the best pan chicharron... More

Stayed 2 nights. From reviews I was aware that this hostel could be noisy as it is situated on a busy cross roads but had 2 decent nights sleep despite the noise - if you're a light sleeper take earplugs. The room was very clean and quite big. A nice big bed which was very comfortable. There was plenty of... More

Nice enough hotel in a good area, looks very nice from the outside. Hot water was a little poor and when we needed to make an urgent phone call they advised their phone only works for 1 minute, which seemed very strange. Overall I would recommend it if you need somewhere reasonably priced to stay in the Miraflores area.

We stayed here overnight after arriving from the UK at sixish. It was a cute place to stay with a lovely internal courtyard for breakfast. Eggs to order too which was nice. The windows were left open which meant the rooms were fresh but with the winter fog the sheets were damp. When we tried to pay for extras with... More

Based in Miraflores, this hostel was a lovely introduction to Lima and Peru. Facilities are basic but well kept and the staff were friendly. The breakfast was a little on the light side but sets you up nevertheless for a day of exploring.

We stayed two nights after landing in Lima. The rooms are basic but comfortable. The second night I had a lot of trouble sleeping though because of the trafic noise. The hotel is situated on a crossroad where there is a policewoman controlling the trafic with a very irritating wistle day and night. Breakfast at first looked a bit basic... More

We stayed here twice over the last week. The staff all seemed nice and helpful and spoke good English. Our first room was on the bottom floor and was quite noisy. The blind and TV also didn't work. But our second room was inside the hotel on the second floor. This room was nicer, the TV and blinds worked and... More

First off you need to manage expectations. When you're paying only $30-40 per night you can't expect luxury. So with that in mind, this is a traditional Peru B&B that feels authentic. Rooms are simple but are clean and have en suite, the feel of the place is lovely and relaxed. Staff were helpful and the breakfast was OK (eggs,... More

Arrived at midnight to be greeted by very grumpy and unhelpful night reception guy. Room very basic and disconcerting to have duvets without covers as despite a top sheet could definitely smell previous user! Noisy traffic and no air conditioning. Very basic breakfast - roll and jam carefully distributed in case of excess!! Location best part as could walk to... More
