We got a room neighbouring the kitchen so the noise and smell got into the room. Bathrooms are fine and clean. Location is very good, central Miraflores. For breakfast you get a voucher to the nearby restaurant, very basic (standard in peru).

We stayed here after an 8 hour overnight to Lima from Huaraz. We had only last minute decided to stay in Lima so hadn't booked ahead. Flying dog backpackers was the only one with space... and now I see why. The staff were rude and unhelpful, and we had to ring the door multiple time for them to open it......

To begin, the reservation through expedia kept getting error messages, so we went directly through the website. That didn't work either, so we sent an email. Email was promptly answered and reservation complete. He even arranged transportation from the airport. Fast forward to the day of our arrival, the transportation DID NOT pick us up from the airport so we...

We used this hostal as a place to store our luggage, and to shower and nap before heading back to the airport later that night. We chose this hostal...

We did not love this hostel. The location was very central but that made it loud. The staff was not very helpful or accommodating. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Good location if you want to stay right in town.

We arrived late (12pm) after a delayed flight and left at 6:45am the next morning so this review is based on a very short stay! We booked the taxi pick up through flying dog and even though our flight was delayed for 3 hours there was someone in arrivals waiting for me which was very welcome! He did drop as...

An average hostel in a great location across the street from Kennedy Park in Miraflores District of Lima. The hostel is about average, staff wasn't that interested in hearing any complaints about something in the hostel. A lot of things advertised in their website weren't available during my stay. The poolroom & bar were closed down,there were beverages for sale...

Friendly and helpful staff, rooms were large and clean and the hostel had a reasonable breakfast but do not stay here if you require internet access. I also had the same experience at the Flying Dog Hostel in Iquitos.
