Decent hostel but not the best I've stayed in Lima. The showers are good but there is no place to hang your clothes and towel bar outside the shower door, but that is into the main bathroom area and the door is always left open so people can just see straight in. Not ideal. Wifi wasn't amazing. Didn't work in... More

A major plus is the friendly staff and cooking facilities.This hostel felt really welcoming as a starting point in Lima. It wasn't a major party location if that's what you're going for but you can definitely have a few drinks here and get chatting to people. A good breakfast is provided and you can walk to the main park of... More

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.
