“Perfectly Adequate and does the job”
Reviewed 4 November 2012

Wanted somewhere cheap to stay for 1 night stay before moving on the next day. Paid US$30 for a private room with En-suite bathroom. In Summary - perfectly adequate and met expectation for the price.

Pros:
1. Location - It is also very central and you can walk to Larcomar shopping mall or Parque John F. Kennady. 10 - 15 mins depending on how fast.
2. Our room was quite big (don't know about others)
3. Plenty of hot water.
4. Breakfast was ok (as long as you don't expect much) - bread, Jam, juice coffee.
5. Bed was comfortable.
6. It is not near any main street, so no noise from the roads.

Cons:
1. Keep having problems with Wi-fi.
2. Walls are thin - so if you're a light sleeper you may have a problem.
3. Staff speak ok (but rudimentary English) - not a problem for me as I can converse in Spanish, but may be for others.

In summary - For a short, cheap stay in Miraflores, I would recommend this place. Basic but clean - for $30 for a double room with private bathroom in Miraflores, why not?

Definitely one of the more inexpensive places to stay in the nicer area of Lima. Great location...within walking distance of LarcoMar, Parque Kennedy, etc. The staff was pretty friendly and helpful...although they were very laid back. The best was we came back on an extremely early morning bus from Huaraz and the guy opened the door for us and let us sleep on the couch for a few hours and we were essentially just coming back to pick up our bags and then hop on a flight bound for Colombia later that night.

All in all, really felt like a super chill place where you were at home. The guy kept saying ya, make yourself at home. Met a lot of really cool people here too and just overall had a really pleasant stay.

Pro's: hot showers, clean dorms, tv/dvds, book exchange, great vibe, location is awesome
Con's: breakfast is just bread and coffee or tea (and it's included in your room rate - about 1 USD), wifi was real spotty when we were there

We stayed there last January (just catching up on reviews now). It is in a perfect location, safe in Miraflores. Close to the waterfront, and just off a main street. Our room was clean, and serviced daily. The staff we encountered were awesome. And it was cheaper than all the other places we looked at. Breakfast is included. Not a party hostel, although the walls are a little thin sometimes. Stay here!

Steyed in lima for one night, chose this hostal as they provide airport pickup and a great location (previously i had chosen a hostal near the airport between 2 flights but then you just sit in some awful loction - slums of Lima). So rather a longer drive and a nice place. Airport pickup was all fine, hostal great location (safe even at night to walk around), hostal staff friendly, room clean (dorm w 8 beds, if all would be occupied a biut crowded I guess). yes, bathroom ceiling not to top, so thats not ideal. Squeaking doors - that should be easy to fix ;-) Kitchen for use, pleasant atmosphere
Would stay there again any time!

Located close to all the action in Miraflores, this hostel has clean rooms with shower and toilet. The staff are friendly and there is plenty of information available as to what to see in do in Lima and the rest of Peru. There is small kitchen to make food, though there are plenty of cheap restaurants close by. The reception are also has some sofas and cable TV and DVD's if the sightseeing gets too much. Bike hire is also available. I admit it doesn't look much from the outside, but it is very spacious and clean inside.

The location was definitely the best thing about this place. The rooms were OK, but never got cleaned in 8 days we stayed there, and the bathroom wall never went up to the ceiling so you could here everything from outside. Staff were friendly if spoken to, but not outgoing, and always seemed to be smoking inside. Breakfast was the worst we had in Peru, after a few days i asked for a discount ($1) and went to the supermarket nearby for breakfast, much better. I'm sure there has to be much better options than this in Lima, i definitely will look for one next time.

Good location.
But i had a problem, i forgot my mobile there and i called them within 30 min i realized it.
and the manager said to me. We found it and gonna keep till u get back to Lima.
i got it back....but when i get home in London i checked my balance, they spent 85 pounds in calls and video calls.
