Sadly I was still quite ill when we arrived here after a monster bout of food poisoning, and therefore was not able to make the most of this hostel. This was really disappointing, as as soon as we arrived we got a really great vibe from this place.
The building is fab, with a lovely old staircase up to a modern well decorated interior for the hostal itself. The welcome was really helpful and friendly, and it was clear that the place was really clean and well run. We asked to change rooms when we arrived - due to being ill I wanted to switch to a private room, and the staff were really helpful sorting this out. There seemed to be plenty of activities on and the place was really sociable, which seemed like they would be really fun if you could join in. Sadly I needed early nights, and despite the activities going on nearby we weren't disturbed by any noise or anything. The room was immaculate, with clean bedding and bathrooms etc. and was cleaned every day.
Up in the bar there is a good range of food on offer, which is reasonably priced for the Miraflores area where the hostal is located. The food is also DELICIOUS. It's freshly made to order from lovely fresh ingredients, and it was actually the first food I was able to enjoy since getting ill. There is a good range to choose from as well, so there should be an option to suit everyone.
The location is right by Parque Kennedy in Miraflores, so near to lots of shopping, food places, some good bars etc etc, as well as being an ok walk to the beach where you can get surf lessons etc.
If I ever go back to Lima, this is definitely where I would stay.
