This hostel has a lot of potential but sill has some work to do. It is in a historic building, but could stand to be a bit cleaner. The wifi was pretty bad and one of the front desk employees was super rude. However, I had some positive interactions with several other staff members and thought that the management was doing a good job for the most part. If you are not a hostel goer then you will most likely not like it here. The neighborhood is pretty rough at night, but great during the day, as it is walking distance to many historical sights and museums. I would stay here again, but preferred Miraflores and Barranco.
