Cirque Hostel
Ranked #135 of 366 Speciality Lodging in Lima
Reviewed 6 February 2014

If your looking for budget accommodations in the Miraflores district, this is a good option. Pretty quiet room, fairly clean for a hostel and decent bed and pillows… The bathrooms are better than camping and the place smells a bit stuffy, but can't complain for the price and would stay here again if back in Lima as its in a safe area and close to restaurants and boardwalk… Hope this review was helpful!!!

Hostel was ok, bed comfy. Kitchen was dirty and the bathroom mouldy. The walls are very thin and lack of sleep is a given as no one was courteous to the fact that people were sleeping in the middle of the night. Good location though.

As other reviewers state, the staff were amazing, people complain about the "budget friendly restaurants etc" but we found some great cheap restaurants nearby. And when we did want to go to miraflores the staff arranged a taxi for us, or even drove us in ourselves... Rooms were large and quirky and great.. Thanks again :)

The private rooms (I think it was #6) were great with lots of room and comfy beds. The staff was very attentive with organizing our busses and taxis and helping us navigate around Lima. The little dog Mr. Love is also a big bonus and all of his numerous outfit changes. I greatly enjoyed my stay here and recommend it to everyone!

I was taken in be other reviews, and booked the place. Big mistake. The bathroom was disgusting, and I'm not sure the sheets were clean. The stairway smells, and the kitchen wasn't clean. Friendly staff is about the only good thing I have to say about it.

My girlfriend and I stayed here from a few nights. First off, the words "friendly" and "helpful" are banded about a lot - including by me - but this is definitely a place where those words are accurate. Treated more like guests in a home than a hostel. Much appreciated.

The rooms are spacious. They are clean.

The quirky design of the hostel is interesting too. Makes for a change from whitewashed walls and the like.

And the cute dog is a bonus.

The only downside - and there is of course nothing they can do about this, is the location. It is a bit away from the action. But we knew this.

Good value. Recommended.

The overall vibe and service was fine, but there was terrible black mold growing on the ceiling of the bathroom. It was pretty gross, and we were very glad we only had one night before catching our flight out of Lima. The hostal is close to many upper-end restaurants, and it's in a nice neighborhood, but it's a bit of a hike to the heart of Miraflores or to a budget-friendly bar.
