This hostel is just 5-10 minutes from the airport by taxi. They offer a taxi service to/from the airport, but you can easily find a taxi for about half price by walking just outside the airport. Just turn left as you exit the airport and follow the sidewalk to the gates, there will be taxis waiting for 5-10 soles. And... More

Hostel is very close to the airport, but requires a taxi there and back. Hostel provides airport taxi pick-up for a fee. Hotel felt dark, a tiny bit sketchy, and not all that clean. Reasonable wi-fi. However, given that there are very limited options to stay around the airport, it's still a decent option if you have a late flight... More

This was a good price and very convenient to the airport. My husband and I stayed here one night when we needed a place to crash. We arrived at the Lima airport around 9pm on a Friday and were picked up by a driver arranged by the hostel - Deniss Palacios. We stayed at the hostel for one night and... More

I wish I could be writing a better review, as everything apart from the bed bugs was great. However, the fact that I was covered in a red, itchy rash just before I was about to catch my flight into the jungle cannot be redeemed by the better experiences at this hostel. The airport pick up was good and worth... More

If you are looking to get a shut eye before your flight, this is not a good idea. We had a 6 hour layover and decided to stay here overnight. The shared dorm had a very humid and stinky smell. People were in and out of the room until 2 am and slammed the doors without regard for people trying... More

We stayed one night in Lima and we liked the hostel. It's not a nice neighborhood but it's close to the airport. You can find restaurants near by and the staff will help you if you need anything. I guess there are much more to see in Lima and much more beautiful surraroundings. We did take the buss to the... More

Slightly worn down hostel, the bed sheets weren't the cleanest but it was close to the airport and had all thye basics. Breakfast was ok but pretty limited, staff were friendly even with a late arrival. Pretty noisy with the stairwell and very thin windows.

This is perfect for all you Lima visitors who need to be near the airport. It's a grungy, scary neighborhood, but the hostel is great. I stayed only one night, sleeping for 8 hours and then leaving. Beds are clean and big. Bathroom was pretty dirty, but maybe I just caught it at a bad time, since I arrived late... More

We booked one night in the dorm rooms as a stop gap whilst en-route to Cusco and it did everything it said on the packet..... easy access to the airport and cheap with all you need - yes it is located on the Lima outskirts which it not the most picturesque but that is not why you would use this...

We arrived at 11:10pm and were looking for the taxi sign at 11:40. We walked around in circles for 10 minutes getting accosted by dozens of taxi drivers until a young kid arrived with our name. He spoke no English and kept saying 10 minutes ( for the taxi) every 10 mins he said this and we were getting frustrated.... More
