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

We stayed here one night while waiting for a flight the next morning. It took a very long time to get through immigration and our baggage, but our driver was still waiting for us as promised! The hostel was very close, the staff very friendly and the room clean and ready for us! We didn't get a chance to take... More

We stayed one night after we arrived in Lima, and it worked well since it was close to the airport, however, we wouldn't choose to stay there for any reason beyond locational convenience. The taxi service provided is way overpriced - 22 soles for a 5 minute drive. That is the most expensive taxi ride we've had during our three... More

I stayed here in the first week of December for one night as it is very near the airport and recommended by hostel world.com but would definitely not stay here again. I had a late arrival and this hostel offered airport pick up for 25s if I remember correctly, which is why i chose here. within about 2 hrs of... More
