The hostel had been recommended to me by a friend as having a great vibe. Arrived early evening on Friday to someone passed out on the couch in the entrance hall and a friendly but very disorganized staff at the desk. Check-in took a while, but was eventually shown to my 6-person dorm. High ceiling, neon light, in a bad...

The place is dirty as per the other reviews and they did muck up our reservation on the first night but this isn't that strange for a party hostel. The pros are that we met some great people, the bar is cool and the staff are generally very nice — Charlie the night manager is so lovely and helpful! What...

A great hostel to meet other backpackers in. The staff is friendly and speak English very well. The beds are nice and big, but the shared bathrooms not so clean but okay. It's located far out from Lima. If you have a good sleeping heart sleeping through the night is not a problem.
