I was surprised at how busy the location is - its right on a massive roundabout so the noise and car horns are 24 hrs. The rooms facing the road are pretty loud. Its close to a lot of stuff in Miraflores though. The facilities are pretty good. Upstairs has a good sized bar area with an outdoor rooftop terrace that has table tennis and foozball. WIfi is non existent in the rooms and can be sketchy in the common area.
The activities are pretty disappointing. They have daily activities on the board but they just about never eventuate. There is no communication from the staff as to what is going on with them.
My main problem was being shifted around a lot of different rooms as we wanted a double room. We were told more than once that we had a room and then were moved to a twin or a dorm without notice. It was made clear to me in no uncertain terms that bookings of 1 night take precedent over bookings of multiple nights, which seems backwards to me. I have no doubt that internet bookings are treated better than walk-ins due to the greater possibility of a bad review.
In the end we moved to another hostel nearby for our last couple of nights and it was better. Its too bad because a couple of the staff are great but the place is let down by poor management in the reception area.
