I spent some nights in this great hostel and i felt home. People working there are fantastic and the boss always ready to give you the best service. I really recommend this place. And the position is fantastic because miraflores is central and touristic. Go for it, you will like it!!

Would not recommend this place. The staff aren't very helpful at all. We checked in the early hours of the morning (paid for the whole night) checked out after a couple hours then they would not let us keep our bags in storage or wait in a safe place until it was time for our flight.

Location is pretty good (about 5-10 minutes from the main strip on Miraflores). But the price is a bit higher than some other similar options that have better location. The room was fairly big, and the beds were comfortable, but I'd say that it's worth looking into other options.

It was nice time in this hostel, I have been there almost 2 weeks and I liked it. Rooms was clean, breakfast was fully, and in the Christmas there were presents from the best of the owners. Nice location, good stuff and really working wifi.

If you are expecting Lion Backpackers to qualify as a four of five star hotel. Then this isn't the place for you. There are many four and five star Hotels in Miraflores which will be happy to accommodate your "elitist" needs. However if you are seeking accommodations that offer a unique "down home" ambiance. Then please consider joining our family...

The shower electrocuted me seriously, causing me to slip and fall; I couldn't walk properly for a few days and it still hurts a few weeks later. I told the receptionist about it and she blamed me for it and told me I should be careful because electric showers have electricity; no hint of an apology or an attempt to...

Lion Backpackers is located in the Miraflores district and quite close to the attractions. The hostel itself is a bit rustic with lukewarm water in the showers. For nearly $30 you would be expecting a lot more. The thin blanket on the beds is not adequate and slips off during the night. If they slashed their prices by 50% that...

The hostel is really nice, with a warm sunny feel to the building (very orange yellow color oriented). The breakfast is also nicely laid out, including a juice and fruit in addition to the standard rolls and drinks. Everything is kept very clean. We were in a dorm room, which had its own bathroom - very homey, the bathroom was...

I stayed 3 nights at this hostel. The rooms are old and the beds have only one bedsheet that slides to one site, so in the middle of the night you wake up lying on the matress instead of on the sheet, which is not really hygienic. I had a private room with bathroom which was quite expensive, compared to...
