Reviewed 8 February 2014

The prices are given in US dollars with a internal rate of exhange of 13% unfavorable ; The bill is in soles and there fore it cost 13% more If you stay one week in a private room it makes a difference . The second thing is the addition of 6% for paying with a Visa card: So we are paying 13%+6% more than the quote . quite bad.
Taxi is charged 70 soles from the airport about twice the real value;
Impossible to get a quote from an external travel ageny thru the reception to go to Arequepa: We went outside to a travel agent;

Drinks can be charged to your room errousniuosly .

Overall is ok because of the location :

Room Tip: Away from the bar if you want to sleep

With 8 beds per room and only 1 toilet and shower per room it was nearly impossible to get into the bathroom. There was 1 extra shower in the hall but it was usually occupied. The rooms with 8 beds were very congested. Hardly any space to walk between beds. And nowhere to sit. Also there was never soap or hand towels and any of the restrooms! Breakfast was terrible. Lounge was alright but pretty crowded. Not a lot of space to sit. Very hot as it was on the 3rd floor and sometimes all the windows were closed and I had to open them all to get the air moving. Wifi was decent in the main area but absolutely no reception in the rooms. Overall pretty bad. Would not recommend.

horrible experience, dirty hostel, with cold water, and worn out towels, breakfast is disappointing, the only positive thing about this hostel is the location, located in a safe and nice area of miraflores.

The room has rather strong musty smell. I think it basically comes from the bed spread Because the sheets are rather clean ( I hope).
Internet is only available in the public place( at least in the room 106 there was no internet.)
Si I can not say this is one of the best hostels....
But the price 10$ with breakfast (bread and coffee serials and banana and mandarin orange(very nice orange !)is quite ok and shower was enough hot. And it has a locker small for a big bag,,but it is better than nothing.
My friends had stayed in other hostels in Lima too, and they say Che Lagrto hostel is not bad at all. Overall at this price and location this is number one hostel in this area. ( Well other hostels have lower level of service...)

Room Tip: At night and in the morning restaurant near reception tends to get noisy, so if you want to sleep well I suggest you to try 106 most far from the reception.

Lima is generally just a place people pass through so not much can be said about the area apart from it being in the safer Mira Flores area. Lots of amenities near by and very Western city. Free breakfast in the hostel, TV in the lounge and computers to use. We were put in a 20 bed dorm despite paying for a smaller one. Security is somewhat questionable as although you have to buzz to get in nothing is checked so anybody could be let in. There are lockers under the beds but no keys to the room or locks on the doors, which is a bit unnerving. Could do with more showers. But overall very clean and modern and good for a stop over.

Stayed: June 2013
