My girlfriend and I stayed here after a long bus trip from Paracas. The dorm beds were clean and comfortable, at a good price (S/ 33). A simple breakfast was provided, which was convenient before heading out (although the warm yoghurt tasted a little off). The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the one who greeted us on arrival,... More

We stayed here for two nights before making our way south. We had a twin private with our own bathroom on the 1st floor. The room was clean and the staff were friendly. There was a rooftop for relaxing and a bar with some craft beers but we chose to go out. At night it was quiet on our floor... More

We had a great time in this hostel. Staff were really friendly and the facilities were well maintained: useful kitchen, clean bathrooms, comfortable rooftop terrace... At that time they were renovating an area, but the rest of the hostel worked normally. I totally recommend it.

I am really pleased to have found the Dragonfly Hostels (also in Cusco). What I like most is the super-friendly and helpful service, warm atmosphere and that the hostels are quite small & cozy. In Lima they have a wonderful roof terrace.

Great place to stay in Lima. They have good choice of craft beers. Ask for Lima Pale Ale, it is by far the best one. Rooftop terrace to chill-out, great staff. Good location close to Miraflores bar area or to beach. Happy to come back.

Friendly hostel with a great range of craft beer and a good roof terrace where you can relax. Nice staff and a good big Kitchen. Internet is good and it's in a good area, lots of places to eat and go out nearby. You get a discount if you stayed at the one in cusco too.

I really loved both places in Lima and Cusco: friendly english speaking staff, clean and quiet dorms. At Lima you can drink cocktails at the rooftop terrace and in cusco you are able to sit at the patio and meet other travellers. There is a kitchen available to make your own dinner. Blankets available at cusco where it can be... More

I can not recommend this place more highly! The rooms, bathrooms and common areas were clean, the staff was very helpful, the atmosphere was really fun (the roof top terrance is really wonderful), the location is perfect... If your travelling through Lima, this is definitely the place to stay

We enjoyed this hostel very much for our stay in Miraflores, Lima. We rented the private suit with a double bed/private bath on the upper floor. The water was hot and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast is - juice/tea and toast basically and that is the standard in Peru fyi. Bring ear plugs because the lounge is right by that... More

This hostel was a great way to start our journey in Peru. It was a nice size, not too big, and had a great rooftop bar which was a great place to meet others. Well located and in a very safe neighborhood, so easy to walk to great restaurants nearby. I would be wary about using the transfer service, I... More
