Nice hostel, but a little difficult to find. Keep looking - it is there. People staying here are mainly backpackers who are interested in sharing travel experience. You can always find international friends to share a couple of 'pisco sours' and get new ideas about where to go next.

I booked a private room, when I turned up at 11pm they didn't have my booking and said we can have the room tomorrow. We had no where to go. They found me and my girlfriend a bed each in a 20+ dorm which was in terrible condition, very dirty and smelly, which we had to pay for. The next...

I enjoyed my stay here. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The hostel is located in a great location with ample businesses and even 2 large grocery stores. The facilities were nice and easy to use. One downside is that the wifi rarely works in the rooms but it works wonderful in the common areas! I would definitely recommend...

With 8 beds per room and only 1 toilet and shower per room it was nearly impossible to get into the bathroom. There was 1 extra shower in the hall but it was usually occupied. The rooms with 8 beds were very congested. Hardly any space to walk between beds. And nowhere to sit. Also there was never soap or...

horrible experience, dirty hostel, with cold water, and worn out towels, breakfast is disappointing, the only positive thing about this hostel is the location, located in a safe and nice area of miraflores.

The room has rather strong musty smell. I think it basically comes from the bed spread Because the sheets are rather clean ( I hope). Internet is only available in the public place( at least in the room 106 there was no internet.) Si I can not say this is one of the best hostels.... But the price 10$ with...

Lima is generally just a place people pass through so not much can be said about the area apart from it being in the safer Mira Flores area. Lots of amenities near by and very Western city. Free breakfast in the hostel, TV in the lounge and computers to use. We were put in a 20 bed dorm despite paying...

I cannot stress how well-located this hostel is. It's right where you want to be in Miraflores. There is a ton of sightseeing, shopping, and dining just a blockaway surrounding Parque Kennedy and the beach-view "boardwalk" is just a ten-minute walk away. The fact that the hostel is located in a small passageway a block behind the busy intersection of...

Fantastic hostel. Clean, spacious and friendly. Great staff. Definitely the cleanest hostel I've ever stayed in. Giancarlo was like a personal tour guide. He was brilliant so helpful and gave great advice on things to do. Location was fantastic, right in the heart of Miraflores!
