The Angels Inn Backpackers Peru
Ranked #124 of 358 Speciality Lodging in Lima
Reviewed 14 September 2012

We stayed there for 2 nights in the double bedroom. Great location, safe area and nice family running it. The hostel is basic, we had a small room with no window, but very clean and OK for a backpackers place. Your valuables are safe and the lady recommended a travel agency to us to arrange further travels and bus tickets (so we didn't have to go to the bus terminals and buy our tickets ourselves as apparently, the bus terminals are in dodgy areas) which was very handy. The only thing we didn't like is that the arranged taxis by angels inn were so overpriced. Our airport taxi was late and cost more than the standard rate (about 5-10 soles more). Plus the taxi we took from the hostel to the bus terminal early in the morning was 100% more than the rate from and to Miraflores we saw at the bus terminal when getting off the taxi arranged by the lady...Not nice!

The super friendly owners should probably get an extra star just for graciously waking up ungodly early both to let us check in and out, thanks to some pretty masochistic flights we had scheduled. Our double ensuite room was clean and simple, with a tiny window, and the bathroom was spotless though it ran out of hot water pretty quickly - all in all, nothing to complain about, considering the good price and the helpfulness of the family who ran the place. One thing to be aware of, at least in the tiny double room near the kitchen, is that the walls are paper thin - we could hear the guy in the room next door crinkle a plastic bag like he was right next to us. So you might not get a lot of sleep on a weekend night, if people *anywhere* in the area are having a party (and it's Miraflores, so they probably are). Or if a weird guy in the room next door starts talking to himself and swearing profusely. But being creeped out by a weird neighbor aside, we were really happy with our stay at Angels!

The only good thing about Angels Inn is the location and the price. It is within walking distance of Larco Mar and Kennedy Park and it is really cheap.

The beds are very uncomfortable and the place is so small you feel like you are living with the family that runs it.

On our last night they tried to charge us more than the price we were quoted. Thankfully we had printed out the emails as proof before we left home. Even though we had the proof with us it still took 30 minutes of arguing before they agreed to charge us what we were quoted. Mistakes do happen but it felt as though we were being scammed.

Over a 4 night stay they did not clean our room once. I don't expect new sheets every day, but I do expect basic things like toilet paper refills and the garbage being emptied. We actually had to bring our garbage out to them to be emptied and ask for a new bag for the garbage can. We also had to ask for more toilet paper twice.

The rooms here were very basic indeed. The location was good and the place was clean. The hostel is run by a lovely family, although for us it was all a little too intimate. It feels like you are staying in their living room- you basically share facilities with them. There was free WiFi and the breakfast was fine.

The owner of this place is great. He is super friendly and always willing to help with anything you need. The other staff members were also super friendly too and made us feel really welcome even just for the one night we stayed.

We payed 65soles for a double room with a shared bathroom. The room also had a large set of bunk beds. The room was clean and spacious enough.
It didnt have a TV but did have a small fan and table.
Breakfast was included also. This was tea or coffee and fresh bread with jams and butter.

The bathroom was clean and spacious and had hot water.
There was also the use of a small kitchen with a fridge where they provided drinking water free of charge. There was also the use of free internet.

The location was a good little location in the miraflores area. It was just a few blocks away from the beach and also the main Parque Kennedy. So it is within easy walking distance to numerous shops and restaurants.

This place is great value for what you get and I would definately return when in Lima again.

The Angels Inn was a great budget lodging option for Lima. It is located in the Millaflores neighborhood and was within easy walking distance of Kennedy Park, where there are lots of dining and shopping opportunities. In addition, it is within easy walking distance to the ocean and the big Larco mall.

The manager was very helpful and provided a good breakfast on our schedule. You could also use the kitchen if you wanted.

The rooms are simple and the bathrooms are clean. Our room had a double bed and a bunk bed, along with a TV and free access to wi-fi and computers.

during my stay i found the owners to be fantastic and always willing to help. Place was clean, with internet access, books and all accessories. they kept place locked 24/7 and always were quick to let you in any hour of the night/day, just had to ring a bell. Very clean and close proximity to everything. Honestly was the best one i stayed at during my trip!
