“Great atmosphere, LOVELY owners, comfy, clean beds. Hostel is small, cosy and fun”
Reviewed 25 July 2011

One of my favourite hostels in Peru. As the hostel is essentially a house turned hostel the atmosphere is great. The dorms are not too big, very comfy and very clean. The living/dining room area is very homey and if you want a good hostel to meet other backpacker's in a nice costy environment this is the place. Juan and Pilar, the owners, are really friendly, a little eccentric and very helpful. Hostel is situated in Miraflores which is a nice area and is not too far from the seafront and other popular parts of the city.

DO NOT GET THIS HOSTEL CONFUSED WITH IT'S 2 NEIGHBOURS!! There are 2 hostels surrounding Casa de Mochilero one with a similar name and they have been known to try take more than their fair share of customers. Friends of mine had a booking at Casa de Mochilero and one of the other hostels managed to convince them that they were the same hostel and they paid and were convinced to check in and pay for the other hostel. Just make sure the name is 'Casa de Mochilero'!!!
