This is the best backpackers I have been to. The family running the business is very friendly and speaks good English. The rooms are clean and spacious and the entire location is colourful and rich with messages from visitors. The location is ideal for 1 or 2 nights and if you need to be close to the airport, otherwise it...

Great staff, spacious rooms, good beds, decent breakfast, good WiFi, Pool Table (not in a very good condition though) and pingpong table available for free. Kitchen spacious and as clean as you could expect it in a hostel... Only a few mins from the airport by car (depending heavily on traffic of course). Overall, I would totally recommend this hostel...

We were 3 couples who travelled together to explore Macchu Picchu in Peru and our first stop after an 8 hrs flight was Lima! We arrived at the hostel around 2AM and was greeted with a big smile by the night staff. Checking in was a breeze- we were given a room for each couple w/ private bathrooms for our...

We had 10.5 hours between flights, and this was is a good option for such a short period. Staff very friendly, room was nicer than i expected, and taxi pick-up service was good. As has been mentioned in other reviews, the location is good really only for late night/early morning flights. Breakfast is nice, and the room itself (on the...

Just what you need when you arrive late to the airport. Beds were nice, breakfast better than expected and the common areas were cool. They let you stay after check out-time for a charge of 5 soles. The wifi was fast and working really good even though the place was rather crowded when I visited. The staff is helpful and...

This was my second stay at the hostel. Couldn't have asked for more helpful and lovely staff. I arrived extremely early in the wee hours of the morning (forgot to book an extra night). I was given the couch till my room was ready later on in the morning. The staff organised my transport into the city and their driver...

I only stayed one night between flights. It was nice to be picked up at the airport, the place was clean and the staff friendly. I had breakfast really early in the morning and it was all good. It's well located from and to the airport, you can actually walk to the aiport.

We stayed there one night before and one night after our flight. The accomodation is really nice (comfortable beds, rooftop balcony, hot shower). But what really makes the whole difference is the staff. Everyone we met was just more than 'normal' nice. They gave us lots of tips about bus connections and were just really helpful. There is no place...
