Do not bother staying here. Extremely noisy from cars outside all day and night. So you won't get any sleep. The girl on reception during the day was rude and disinterested. Worst I have ever met. She was extremely unhelpful and ignorant. She made me feel very uncomfortable and rolled her eyes when asked anything. AVOID this place .Way better...

The hostel is in a great location, Miraflores us Beautiful and safe. The beds are wide and comfortable. We were a bit let down by there being no hot water in any of the showers one day and the staff were a bit clueless on a few things (one in particular told us we had to get two long buses...

We stayed 4 nights there with a friend. It's a really nice hostel just located 2 minutes away from the Kennedy park. What makes the difference is the rooftop with a bar, a kitchen, a tv... A really chilling place with affordable prices. We loved this hostel because you can party if you want, but you can also rest if...

I did not sleep due to the loud music being played at next to thw hostel. Apparently the hostel is close to a club/discotek and they played almost all night. Also my bed was next to a door to my guess it led to a tiny balcony and the door wouldn't shut properly and it led in a freezing draft...

a nice and friendly place to stay, clean, cheap (not the same for dinner, but they have a good free breakfast!). Bus-booking facilitation, music on the roof, in the heart of Miraflores. Take a padlock with you!

Great location -- a block away from the park, so it's relatively quiet enough most of the time, but a quick walk away from the hustle and bustle (not to mention transportation to the rest of the city). It's also right by several small restaurants that are cheaper than the stuff right on the park (lots of yummy options to...
