Hostal El Farolito is a relatively new budget hotel on a quite side street in Miraflores. It is in the heart of Miraflores, only about three blocks from Parque Kennedy and three blocks from Huaca Pucllana. Vivanda, a major local supermarket, is also about three blocks away. The staff is very helpful and a few of them speak excellent English.... More

I've been staying in that hotel for at least 3 years. The staff is veryyy friendly. The rooms are very clean. The location si the best, you're 2 blocks from Parque Kennedy in Miraflores, close to very good restaurants, and definately no hotel close by charges that cheap for what you get.

This hotel was located just a few blocks away from Miraflores' main attractions. It's near several little shops to buy food plus a big supermarket Vivanda which is great for all the people who snack all the time like me. The staff was super nice, the hotel (when i went there it was a hotel, not a hostel) was very... More

We stayed there after 12 days trekking around the Andes and the rainforest. The place is clean, staff friendly even if not English speaking and very accomodating. The location is convenient to most of the attractions in Miraflores. We enjoyed walking, people watching and relied on the staff to provide directions. This is a wonderful bargain for the budget-conscious traveller.

...with the best location for the price, Miraflores is the trendy place to stay. We requested a room on back of the building to avoid the noisy traffic and honking of cars. This hostel is very clean, the room with two beds was on the small side, however, the bathroom was very spacious and clean, the beds were very firm.... More

This little hotel appears to be less than a year old. Everything is new and clean. The rooms are a bit on the small side, but OK for one or two people. I would recommend a room that does not face the street, since Lima has a lot of horn honking. This isn't a big problem on this side street,... More
