“Nice choice”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

I stayed in a private room, which was quiet at night. There was constant hot water, but the water pressure was poor. Breakfast was the usual bread and jam, but was was nice. Francis was a good host as everyone else has mentioned, and he is fast with his highlighter. The hostel is slightly out of the way, but this was fine. There were not so many other guests at the time I stayed and so I did not get to experience any real vibe in the place unfortunately.

The hotel was great. We were greeted very late in the night by Francis, the super friendly owner. The room was big and the beds comfortable with warm blankets. The bathroom was a little small but ok. We felt secure and recieved very good information and tips about the neighbourhood and Perú in general. Francis is the best.

The owner, Francis, is a first-class host who went well over and above what could be expected to make our stay the best.

He spent a great deal of time with us advising on places to go, routes and taxi fares not to mention the procedures and lingo for getting on a local bus!

Warm, friendly, clean and very secure.

This is the only hostel I've stayed in with a DVD player in the room! It was great to feel able to chill out privately. My boyfriend and I had the matrimonial room on the top floor. It had a wardrobe, balcony, table and chairs, hot shower and a double and single bed. We stayed for 3 nights.

Francis spent about 25 mins showing us all the best places to visit, not only in miraflores but also downtown Lima, Barranco and another area I can't remember the name of! It's about a 10 minute walk into main miraflores and not far from taxis to the other areas ( Francis details how much to pay to each place do you're never ripped off) there are restaurants really close by too.

There is a courtyard, a foosball table and a weight machine. Inside there are 2 kitchens and a lovely sitting area with guitars and z big tv. There are loads of DVDs to choose from!

Breakfast s a selection of rolls with jam and butter, tea and coffee. It's served until 12 and the rolls are high quality - not stale!

One evening we returned and one of the staff had done delicious cake for us! We're still not sure why but everyone in the hostal got some!

The rooms have hot water and wifi. they are not the most modern but for the price, friendly atmosphere and help from Francis I don't think we could have asked for more!

The other reviews have said it, this hostel stands out because of Francis and because of the kind of philosophy he wants to have in his place, because of that he has had such success in terms of awards. Francis is "the" host, always has a smile on, always! He will help you with directions, helps you with anything he can, specailly restaurants, if you want to eat well Francis will give you directions to around 30 restaurants when he hands you over the map and colours it with the importante stuff in Miralfores and the surrounding neighborhoods. There are supermarkets nearbyand lots of restaurants too, Miraflores is a very nice neighborhood with the Malecon just 10 minutes south and the center of Miraflores about 10 or 15 minutes away too, it is very very nice to walk around, super secure.

We're ages 66 and 68 and felt right at home with our host Francis. It was a great experience. Who can ever forget that with every new person, he takes out his felt coloured pens and shows you the map of Lima and areas as to what to see, what's safe and not, where to eat, enjoy life, etc. We 'came back' after a week out of town and down the southern coast and felt like we were coming home. He has a great staff. Near to everything from grocery store (Wongs) to a Starbuck's if you're homesick and to the sea. He would even drive you outside the city if you wanted a tour overnight. Sheets, towels, soap all provided as well as continental breakfast.

Room Tip: For us, we preferred a room, either with bathroom (which we got both times) or one down the hall.

I concur with the majority of the highly positive feedback from others.

The location is roughly ten blocks from the Ovalo (traffic circle) of what's considered the center of Miraflores at Av. Pardo and Centro Parque de Miraflores. However the area around Miraflores House easily holds its own with numerous options such as restaurants and other nearby shopping.

WiFi signals are strong and has computer terminal for use. Hot water - check. Filtered water - BONUS! Coffee - heavy and black like I like em. Secure facility.

Quite possibly the most outstanding feature of Miraflores House is Francis himself.

Francis will -- once you're registered and unloaded -- sit you down at the main meeting area, armed with colored highlighters and his own homemade map. He really wants you to be fully informed and prepared to take on Miraflores district and the old centro historical city of Lima. He fully and clearly explains the taxi and bus system and how to navigate through and back (I found that part much more valuable and current than any Google search could provide). He will point out great restaurants to explore within the neighborhood. (I observed him highlighting the map in virtually the same manner and with the same enthusiasm with a foursome from China).

Francis is an encyclopedic treasure trove of traveler/tourist information. A walking - enthusiastic - updated Lonely Planet / WikiTravel compendium. You cannot go wrong with Hostal Miraflores House.

Thank you for the welcome of your place and crew...
