As we are traveling as a couple, we opted for a private room, with a private bathroom. Our room was amazing! We were sad to leave. The bed was so comfortable. The shower... You need to find out for yourself! The kitchen is a bit squishy and the fridge quite full from other backpackers but otherwise great. There is a...

I really enjoyed my stay at the mochilero. The owner is a super nice lady and there is a really comfortable and safe feeling atmosphere. The showers and beds are really nice and the kitchen well stocked. It has a great location in miraflores, 10-15 min walk from parque Kennedy. It's not too expensive for Lima as well, 15 soles...

Really loved this hostal. I was staying in the emergency room as there were so many people staying there. I had a comfortable bed and a hot shower. Everywhere was clean and Pilar (the lady who runs the hostel) is incredible friendly and extremely helpful. This hostel made my stay in Miraflores! Very economical. I paid 17 S/. (Peruvian soles)...

The location is not bad. From Kenneth Park it takes 15min by foot. So, it's more quite than other place. The location is just next to the Nomade hostel!! 15sol per one bed in dormitory. Host(Pilar) and her brother Juan speak English. The facility is not the new one you can see they always try to clean it!! Good bathroom...

We stayed one night in this hostel, mainly because the dormbeds are pretty cheap. The lady who runs it and the other staff are very friendly and helpful (for example with organizing taxi's to the airport), but the hostel itself was not ideal for us. The place is quite small for the amount of people, so it gets very crowded...

Excelent location nearby some of the best places in Lima . The beds and bathrooms was ok. The manager is a good advisor for another places in Peru and the people who also stay in is very nice and from all of over the world. Has a good price and is worth for it .

Friendly people, mediocre house, medium clean. Nice with a kitchen, but it gets really crowded both here and for the two bathrooms. On my 6 man dorm it slept 8 at the most. One morning I was getting up for breakfast, it slept five people on a mat in the living room too. No idea how many people were living...

When I stayed the dorm room was very cold and the mattresses were damp so it was uncomfortable to sleep. I asked for another blanket but even that was not sufficient. The staff were friendly and helpful and there was some building and renovation work going on so hopefully these problems will be sorted shortly.

Firstly, initially we had a good experience with the lady managers of this hostel, but that turned bad later in the afternoon after we had been waiting for 6hours for our bed. There were a group of 22 skateboarders who were checking out at 12noon and we then had a bed. Then at 5pm the group could not organize a...

The staff is what makes this place great. Very helpful and friendly. The building and amenities are solidly acceptable. Beds are not particularly comfortable, but, they get the job done. Bathrooms are clean, but definitely need work. Overall, you won't regret staying here, but, you'll appreciate other places more after staying here.
