I was there with my father for three nights. For me with comparison to other places has not the value what we have paid. It was clean but very old and with comparison to other places in Peru, this was the worst. The worst breakfast form all places as well. The big advantage was that I could leave there my...

Hey guys, I had bed bugs in my room the first night.. they didn't even change the sheets and rented it the next day to other people. After bothering around they gave me a little private room that didn't even had a bath inside. The next day they wanted to charge me the full prize for the private room. I...

Although the quality is not the same as a hotel, the value is just right for the location and accommodation. Within walking distance to the Metropolitano Benavides Station and Kennedy Park as well as Larco Ave, where you'll find out plenty of nightlife. The owner and staff treated us cordially and all recommendations around Miraflores were extraordinary, the owner (Arturo)...

I stayed there last september and unfortunately have not been able to write a review until now. Let me start of by saying I'm sorry for any unsuspecting women who have been treated unfairly by the owner since then. I had stayed there several times when passing through Lima and had never had a probrem. The owner would repeatedly ask...

The nearby bus brings you in the city centre in 15 Minutes for 2,50 Soles. The hostel itself is a comfortable place with a nice mixture of local and international travelers: Clean rooms, hot water,...

I stayed at Lion during our last visit to Lima in June. Excellent location, in the heart of Miraflores, close to lots of shopping and restaurants. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly; they helped us to move around and gave us great recommendations. The hostel is very clean and neat.

This place was recommended by the passenger next to me on the flight to Lima, because I was looking for a inexpensive hostel in a good location that wasn't known for partying in the hostel. The three-story hostel is relatively easy to find - the flags help. It's within walking distance to grocery stores and Miras Flores restaurants and nightlife....

After finding this hostel on booking.com i thought it was a good place to stay. Good location and the right price. After arriving i soon regreted my decision. Paying almost S/270 for 2 nights i felt like i was robbed in broad day light. The rooms were old fashioned with the wall paper peeling, the bathroom was filthy and there...
