Lex Luthor's House
Ranked #103 of 358 Speciality Lodging in Lima
Reviewed 30 March 2013

Lex Luthor's house moved from Miroflores to Barranco in early 2013. I was the second person who stayed at their new facility, just 3 blocks from Parque de Barranco. The hostel is located in a very upscale residential apartment complex, extremely quiet and safe. Excellent facility with kitchen, living area, shared dorm room, twin and triple rooms. The owners and on-site manager were very helpful.

Pasaje Pedro Solari 106, dpto. 202-B, Barranco, Lima Peru,

I've been staying at Luis's place ever since the first time I visited Lima back in 2006. It's not flash but it's got everything you need, and Luis is an absolute legend, he's always been really helpful and full of advise and friendly banter. The girls who clean the place are lovely, and I've always known the place to be spotlessly clean (not doubting the previous review). The showers were powerful and hot and the breakfast was decent. It might be a little on the quiet side but there's plenty of madness to be found in Lima if you want it. Also, it's always nice to support a proper Peruvian enterprise as opposed to some internationally owned chain hostel. I'll most certainly be back.

We stumbled upon this hostel after arriving in town late in the evening and finding two others booked solid. What good luck! Friendly staff, very quiet, nice continental breakfast and REAL hot coffee. "Lex" and his brother "Superman" were great hosts and full of advice on local things to do.

We decided to go to this hostel because of all the good reviews. First we were a bit disappointed because the house is really old and the rooms were a bit muggy and smelly. So this hostel is nothing flash concerning the rooms and interior BUT the people who run it are sooooo friendly and helpful. The owner organizes taxis and likes to chat a bit. The ladies seem to be cleaning something all the time and the beds were really good for sleeping. Also the hostel is really quiet and the staff tries to make no noise in the mornings by only whispering etc. (which is in our experience normally not the case in south america). The location is great, wifi and internet is fast and you get free coffee and tee any time you want. In the end we were happy we had chosen this hostel.

Room Tip: If possible get a double. For two ppl it is nearly the same price like two beds in the dorms

I have been staying at Lex Luthor House whenever I come to Lima for the last 6 years. Luis, the owner, is a brilliant host - full of info and anecdotes to help newcomers to Lima to make the best of their stay. Even having been to Lima many times he often tells me about great new restaurants for a modest budget!

The location is perfect and Luis is great at organising transfers from the airport and around town with safe, well-priced taxi drivers.

Thanks for your generous hospitality Lex!!

Stayed here for a couple of nights in a room with shared bathroom.

Good location, quiet, internet, hot water, breakfast (simple, bread and jam), hot drinks free, drinking water provided, towels provided, host very very friendly and helpful.

This is a simple hostel, nice and quiet in a good location. Lewis the owner is very accomodating and informative, sorting taxis and making phone calls on your behalf if required. Some of the rooms can get a little bit warm, but we still slept fine

There are a couple of dorm rooms, a couple of double rooms with private bathrooms and a couple of triple rooms with shared bathrooms. Comes in about 60soles for 2 people.

So, this is not a party hostel. It's a home away from home. Very well located. The closest you can be to Miraflores without paying for it. And Luis is such a helpful guide. He even sat with us for tea to discuss what our mere 24 hours in Lima should be like. It's a neighborhood home, away from commercial/busy areas. All in all, it was good to rest in a cozy space without feeling you were staying in a stranger's home.

Room Tip: get the big room with two beds
