I stayed at Che Lagarto Hostel Lima for three nights. The staff are warm and friendly. They speak English which is helpful to me as my Spanish is limited. The bar staff are amazing, always striking up conversations and happy to drink a few Pisco Sours with you. There's a real South American family vibe around the hostel, which was...

Che Lagarto is a great fun place to stay if you're looking to meet new people, stay up late, and have a strong constitution! If not... then it's a tough place to stay. The hostel is fairly loud throughout the week, and the walls/doors are paper thin. If you're a light sleeper than I am, ear plugs are a must;...

We decided to spend our last 3 nights in Peru at the Che Lagarto, Lima hotel. The hotel is nice and clean, the rooms are a little small and the lockers under some beds are hard to access. If you're looking for a place with a party ambiance, you're not at the right place. It's real calm.

We chose to spend our final 3 nights of travelling at this hostel after having had an excellent experience at a che lagarto hostel in foz de Iguaçu. Unfortunately, the two hostels could not have been more different. This hostel is not worth the premium price that the che lagarto franchise demand. Save your money and spend it elsewhere! Whilst...

I stayed for 3 nights in a 16 person dorm. Everything was quite clean, personnel was really friendly and it was also very cheap. Only the water was shut down the day I left. Breakfast was included which was basic bread with some cereal, fruit and coffee. For the price I payed about 8 dollars a night that was fine.

Hostel was average. I stayed in both the private and dorm rooms. Private room and hostel in general could benefit from a good vacuum - I noticed cleaners cleaning regularly but only using a brush to clean the carpet, which meant that the were generally not very clean. Bathroom floor in private room could also have be a lot cleaner....

We stayed for one night in Che Lagarto. The hostel is in good location and the staff re really friendly but it is too expensive for what it is offered and the internet connexion is really bad. There are cheaper and better hostels in the area.

Stayed in this hostel after staying in the same chain in Florianopolis, Brasil. It wasn't the same standard but it wasn't the same price either! It is located well in Miraflores, though a taxi from the bus couldn't find it and so dropped us on Calle Schell and a helpful policeman showed us it by Subway. We had a few...

I was in Che Lagarto 11 days, I enjoyed my staying, hostel with a really good atmosphere. The people on the reception were very helpful and I loved the Billiard table there. The rooms are very good with a locker to everyone and private bathroom. Minus: the shower, there are hot water but the flow is really weak... Breakfast only...

After booking and paying for a private double online we checked in and were taken to an incredibly small room with two bunk beds with no explanation. I went to talk to reception who then said there was a problem with the room I booked and this was a better room anyway as there was a toilet. I pointed out...
