Located in Mira Flores it is a nice clean hostel. We booked before arriving and organised a free airport pickup - however they never came. The staff were very helpful when organising things to do around Lima and Peru. I would recommend this hostel, and if you stay at the Dragonfly in Cusco as well you get 10% off.

Great place in Lima (Mira Flores Location). Beds are comfortable, clean sheets and clean place! Staff are friendly, helpful and energetic. I spent only one night, I wish I would spend three months in this Dragonfly Hostel. I met good people from allover the World. Strongly recommend it to stay in this awesome Hostel!

I spent a lot of nights at their Lima location where they have really clean and safe facilities, a great kitchen and an awesome... More

I absolutely love this hostel and stay there every time I'm in Lima! From the owner to the cleaning staff and everyone in between, the folks here treat you like family and never hesitate to go out of their way to make your trip better.

The staff that speaks english were great and very helpful. The location was in the center of the city and very safe. They were nice enough to hold my bag for while I went to Cusco. Their tours are based on a certain number of people wanting to do them and not guaranteed. They do not carry much or any... More

Had a great stay at this hostel! The staff were really helpful and personable especially Evelyn on the rooftop bar and Alonso! Also Evelyn makes the best pisco sour in all of Peru! Highly recommend Dragonfly hostel for anyone looking to stay in a great Miraflores location.

Stayed in this hostel moving from downtown to Miraflores. Originally planned on staying a few nights, but turned into a couple weeks because I enjoyed the atmosphere. Breakfast has good drink options, great selection of microbrews for Peru and very nice roof patio to meet other travelers. This is not a party hostel, but everyone is very friendly and enjoys...

The dragonfly in lima isn't a bad hostel. It's fairly clean and the beds are comfortable. However my partner and I had been looking for several weeks for somewhere to stay on Christmas Day and had been in contact with the dragonfly via email. They had told us that they would be putting on a dinner and have a surprise... More

Dear Jacdamo, First I want to thank you for staying objective about the state of the hostel. About the Christmas event: As you noticed, we informed from the beginning that we would need at least 4 persons to maintain the meal. You may remember that we do not have a restaurant facilities in the hostel, so a meal like this... More
