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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

I stayed at this hostel for one night and it was an excellent place with clean single room with shower. The room is clean and right in the middle of miraflores and all the restaurants were just downstairs. The service was very good. Internet was good and security was very good.

Used to be my favorite hostel in South America , but it has changed. No bar anymore. Used to be a perfect place to meet new friends! And crying babies in a hostel?? Didn't parents think that noisy backpackers would disturb their kid? You can hear crying all over the second floor.

Stayed for 3 days in a private room with private bath. This place is problematic for the following reasons: ONE: Wifi is really slow. Even in the common areas.
