I stayed here on my very first night in Peru (and first night in South America) speaking very limited Spanish and I would definitely recommend this hostel to any traveler - especially first timer's in Lima. The hostel staff was incredibly helpful and reassuring and had a lot of information on local excursions and destinations within Peru. I stayed in... More

Friendly, helpful and inexpensive. I came to them while I was traveling thru Lima for the night I returned almost three weeks later with no reservation and they remembered my name and was even more nice to a tired traveler. Definitely make this a place to stay on your trips thru lima cause they multiple locations!!

Wicked Hostel! Super friendly and cool staff! This is my first review I've ever written, I normally don't bother but I really enjoyed Dragon Fly's atmosphere! I went there at the beginning of my trip and decided to stay at the very end as well and I will definitely go back if I'm ever in Lima again! :) - Zita

Checked in 4 hours late without being able to warn them, but my bed was still waiting for me. The guy at the front desk was very nice and helpful. The beds were comfortable and the place was overall pretty clean. The rooftop terrace is nice too. Mira flores is a more expensive neighborhood, the price was reasonable. The breakfast... More

Drom has lockers inside (own lock), beds are good, there is a rooftop bar and the staff is very friendly and helpfull :) Apart from that the neighborhood seems safe and you are very central in miraflores!

Dragonfly Lima is in a perfect location in Miraflores. You can walk to everything, and it is on a quieter street so the road noise of the city is not an issue. They have a fantastic terrace to hang out on with other travelers, and have a beer. It closes at 11pm which is strictly enforced so you can actually... More

Between non-stop entertainment, nightlife, world-famous food, and cliff-top ocean views, Miraflores is undeniably the place to stay in Lima. Lima’s historic downtown is right next door where you can find endless shopping, and must see museums. We were only a 5 minute walk from Makaha Beach where surfing, paragliding, bike tours, and beautiful sunset views all await you. You will... More
