There is no Hostel in the Lima area than Pay Purix Hostel. Where else can one find staff who teach upon request how to prepare Peruvian cuisine. Where else can one taste the best pisco sour in Peru? Where else can you celebrate the Chilean soccer team defeating Peru 3 to 1. Oh did I say that. Any ways if... More

Nothing special, but perfect for one night before or after flying. We arrived late at night at the airport in Lima. We got picked up by a taxi from the hostel with a very nice driver. Rooms were okay, wifi worked good, and the fact that a breakfast is included is great.

The hostel itself was average but we had excellent shuttle service from the hotel to the airport and airport to hotel. Really appreciated having an on-time, safe ride to the airport both with our late arrival and early departure. Great place to stay on a layover!

Really too expensive for what you get. They forgot to pick us up at the airport, room was very expensive and a cockroach was running from my boyfriends bag when we left the room..taxi service was ok, but would choose another hostel next time, even for a couple of hours sleep..

My partner and I stayed at Pay Prix for one night between flights in and out of Lima. It is the perfect hostel for a lay over. It is 3minutes from the airport. Great breakfast! Lots of fresh fruit, cereal, fresh bread with avocado etc, fresh juice and coffee. Rooms were clean, lockers for valuables, free towels and soap (always... More

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
