We stayed here twice during our trip to South America, once when we flew into Lima in September and again before we returned home in December. We liked it the first time, it's a really relaxing place with nice common areas, comfy clean rooms and hot showers - returning after three months we realised how great this place really is!...

My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights in early September. We booked a double room through booking.com and upon arrival were given a four bunk dorm to ourselves which was a nice change for me after two weeks of camping. The staff were really helpful and organised airport collection separately for the two of us with no hassles....

A very relaxing, homey atmosphere with great common areas to hang out in. The kitchen is very well equipped and Eco friendly-the first I've seen in South America. Great staff, very clean, in fact you just feel like staying in the hostel instead of going out!

I arrived in Miraflores and had initially booked the Dragonfly hostel, but as I had my passport stolen they would not let me stay due to the hostel's policies. Thankfully they recommended the Backpacker Boulevard which is just a stone throw away. The one thing that makes this hostel stand out from the rest is the AMAZING staff. Daniel and...

We stayed here for three nights after searching Mira Flores high and low for somewhere to stay that fit our (low) budget. This was the only place with two spare beds and was still a little over our price range but it seemed inviting and clean when we walked in so we decided to stay. The staff were friendly enough...

We had a great time in Lima. The hostel is very well located, the rooms are ok, the bathroom was always clean. But best of all was the team working there. Súper nice, great atmosphere and really feeling like home. Would go back as often as i go back to Lima

As I am writing this I am online looking for another place to stay. It is going to cost me more money, but at this point I don't care. Horrible service. The staff were so rude when we arrived and acted like they were doing us a favor by merely speaking to us. No help with luggage, no information about...

Stayed here for 4 nights during our stay in Lima/Miraflores. Really great location, 3 blocks from Kennedy park and less to the sea. Rooms were simple, basic and clean. One of the cheapest we found in the expensive area. The staff were very friendly and helpful with tips and information about the area. The rooms were off a sucure central...

I usually like to give a well rounded review with both the good and bad elements of a place included. However after spending last night at this place I have only one very important point to put across. This place is extremely loud and thus does not fulfill its basic purpose of providing somewhere to sleep. Now I am not...
