“Terrible Experince, Bad Value For Money!!”
Reviewed 13 September 2011

Not sure why this hostel popped up so high on the list. We, young couple had a bad experience. While the receptionist was reasonably friendly (as commented on by other travellers), he did not care at all about noise during the night, e.g., inviting strange friends over to have dinner at 11.30 pm and watching loud television. The room we got had no window, was REALLY BASIC, lacked any kind of character (as does the whole hostel), and due to a open window in the bathroom (which you btw cannot close), was really cold. In addition, every time the front bell rang to announce people, you could hear this very lound and clear. In summary: it was very loud at night. In th morning the staff watches over the starting time of the breakfast, not any earlier then 8. At the end they wanted to have either Dollars or soles at an exchange of 10% higher than market. Overall horrible value for money, even if bargained down to 35 instead 40. Try hostel Buena Vista, much better and similar price.

this is a nice, clean, friendly staff hostel in the heart of Miraflores in Lima, Peru. It's closed to several restaurants, popular park Kennedy, multiple stores and the beach. the hostel is clean and quiet. the staff (Paolo especially) is a very kind guy. he offered us free cuban cigars when he saw us on the patio drinking Habana club rum:)

Pradera Verde hostel is also very economic. give it a shot if you are around Miraflores. From Parque Kennedy it's about 3 blocks !

Room Tip: call Paolo first from a public phone to make arrangments, he is always willing to reduce the price

This is the place, walk to everywhere in Miraflores Lima. Inexpensive, clean and super friendly staff plus Internet. This remodelled historic building is the way to go if you go hostel in Lima.

What else do you need?

We stayed here in the last leg of our Peru trip, for 2 nights. We arrived in the Lima bus station, and our wonderful taxi driver took us to this place when we told him we wanted something clean & affordable.
We stayed in the room adjoining the courtyard, and it was clean, big, wood floors, big screen tv with cable, and a nice clean & big bathroom with really hot showers. there was even a safe in the room for your valuables. I felt very comfortable here. breakfast is included (continental, which in Peru means bread, butter jam, tea, cofee). The main gate is locked (as are most of the hotels in Lima), but you just ring the bell and they are there in a jiffy to open up. The location is great, about a 5-7 minute walk to Parque Kennedy (straight shot), but away from the square which I liked. The area is very safe to walk, we walked it late many nights. We checked out 2 days later, but our flight was not till 10 pm, so we spent the day walking around the city, our luggage was kept in the storage for free. We arrived back to the hotel, and had an hour or so to kill, so we hung out in the lounge area, watching tv, and joking around with one of the staff girls who was also hanging out in the lounge. I felt like it was more of a home than a hotel... When our taxi arrived, the staff came to the door to send us off, waving bye to us until our taxi was off.. just like my family does when we take off! It was so cute. I would totally stay here again. Ask for Paolo, he was very helpful, and super nice!

great place. brand new and very clean. internet and kitchen available. perhaps not the hostel atmosphere some people want....not many people to meet, make friends with....but this may change as it becomes better known. quiet location too. Only very basic english spoken - a disadvantage for some perhaps.
Overall: On the basis of what we saw, we'd recommend it highly.
