I stayed here for one night because I arrived in Lima late at night and had an early flight to Cusco the next morning. This hostel is nice because it is five minutes from the airport and offers a shuttle service, but that is it. The rooms are not impressive and the location for touring is not great. I recommend...

Overall my stay was great. I arrived late at night and the shuttle was there waiting, very polite and nice guys. Then I got booked into my room, It was a private that was nice and clean, however the bed and pillow were really uncomfortable. The staff were really lovely and gave me a hand finding food ect. Overall nice... More

Review with photos: http://shrimp2.pixnet.net/blog/post/106101854 I stayed here for two nights in a double room with private bathroom Pros 1) Only 3-min frive from Lima airport (Jorge Chavez Airport), around 30-min walk 2) Provided budget accommodation with free breakfast, common kitchen, and free wi-fi. 3) They provide bread, fresh fruits, coffee and milk for breakfast. It tasted great. 4) Close to... More

Ideal place for a short stay near to Lima airport. I liked the friendly people, the bed was good and the fresh breakfast delicious (Bread, fruits, cake, coffee...) Unfortunatly we had a cold shower. But still I would recommend this place to friends!

We stayed in Pay Purix twice, both times before early morning flights. In both cases, the hostel was cheerful and sufficient for a quick stay. Nice dorm-style beds, lockers for belongings, hot shower. Use their airport pickups! The driver was nice and the cost was cheaper than using a normal taxi. Also, bring cash to pay for the hostel and... More

This is an excellent place to stay the night before/after a flight. It is about a 20 minute walk from the airport although I might not do it alone at night. They have numerous and excellent places to chill out which is great when you are stuck all day before an evening flight. You can sit at any of the... More

I was pretty happy with Pay Purix as a place for this weary traveller to rest their weary body after a 36 hour trip from Australia. I emailed to arrange airport pickup and was greeted by their driver with a sign with my name on who had me at the hostel in no time. Others have commented the fare was... More

I was only staying in a room for 4 hours, and a good half hour of my time was spent by the front desk, where they were trying to figure out how to swipe my credit card. There are no atm's nearby, so I suggest coming with exact change. They don't speak english well, but my broken spanish was enough... More

We’re an Aussie couple winging it through Peru. From the airport we were taken to the hostel by a friendly taxi driver named Denis (arranged by the hostel). The staff were friendly, there was a rooftop, cold cheap beer and the rooms were simple but clean. We had a couple of beers, a game of pool, conversed with the new... More
