If you have a long layover in Lima this is your best bet! It is kind of in a sketchy area of town- but don't be fooled by the outside. Inside totally cool and the staff is friendly. It is very close the airport and it is your best bet for the price. It definitely beats sleeping on a bench...

The hostel itself is nice, rooms are ok, cool rooftop terrace. Very close to the airport but therefore obviously not located in actual Lima. The breakfast was one of the best we had in 1,5 months of traveling through Peru and Chile (fresh fruit, fresh juices, eggs, good bread, ...) and for a good price. Most people only stay for...

Very near the airport. But it's in a industrial area neighborhood. were 20 backpacker friends, we were able to enjoy only because we were together. The place needs lots of maintenance. Communication was a big problem, the staff knew very little English. Chilled beer was available. Kitchen is big.

Unfortunately i didn't have a good stay the dorm room was super hot and very noisy as the hostel is on the main road so i didn't get much sleep. The staff however were very friendly and helpful and the airport pickup was good as would be difficult to find on your own. However despite these positives i have to...

We stayed for one night before an early flight out of the Lima airport, knowing that the hostel was close by and hoping to get some more sleep because of that. Not successful at all. The dorm room was suffocatingly hot and stuffy- no air circulation at all, and only one floor fan per room. The fan was only tall...

Dear Kristina, Thank you for your review, it is important to know what travellers think about us and what should we do better. You are right, it was hot and it is not normal in Lima even in summer, but because of the global warming this year it is unbeliable. We are happy that you found the staff great. We...

Thank yo so much for your review. For us it is important. We will be working better, in order to give you better service. Unfortunately taxi drivers which should enter to the Lima aiport must pay a tax it is why all taxi driver increase their rates. As example UBER from this hostel to the aiport ears 25 soles. I...

Wonderful place close to the airport, friendly staff and accommodating on our food requirements. Clean rooms and smooth service. Recommend this as a welcoming hub for travellers in Lima. Airport collection recommended even though it's located close to the airport, not that close to walk with luggage and a safer option.

We had a one night layover in Lima and hence stayed at Pay Purix. We wanted something not too far from the airport & inexpensive and this was just that! It was a cool and fun place. We had dinner on our arrival and it was pretty good. My husband especially loved the soup and yummy pineapple juice, though it...
