the hostel is really small and the staff was rude, wifi barely worked. I stayed one night and then move to another hostel in Barranco. Try something else, the only good thing is the location, but I think you can get something better for that price, bar was boring also.

It's a really nice hostel with a cool and comfortable roof top. The staff is nice and helpful, but we had to ask quite a lot of times for toilet paper for our private room. Furthermore there was mold in the room. So the room hadn't a really nice smell. But apart from that the room was clean, nice and... More

I stayed in three hostels while in Peru and this one was probably my favorite. My favorite things were the clean bathrooms, strong Wi-Fi, and the beautiful rooftop area. However, during peak season I could see this hostel being less enjoyable. There were very few outlets and bathrooms. It has a lot of bedrooms but very few common areas, which... More

I stayed her for four nights (book online and get four nights for the price of three). Breakfast is included and there is a rooftop bar, but unfortunately it was closed while I was there as the hostel was under-staffed. The location is good - close to Kennedy Park, beaches etc. Only a short walk to a metro bus stop... More

Good location and clean hostel about otherwise terrible. I stayed 2 nights and was greeted by a girl who was absolutely clueless. She charged me the wrong amount by card and then came and asked me for extra in cash. She was apologetic and said she was new so I forgave her at first. But then she she basically messed... More

I liked this hostel very much. The people who are working here are very nice and helpful. The location is close to the coast in Miraflores. There is a metro (bus)station nearby from where you can get easily to the center of Lima.

We stayed in 8bed dorm here, comfortable spacious safe clean rooms. The rooftop area is cool to hang out, but unfortunately they only stock overpriced craft beers. For this reason we were out of the hostel most evenings only coming back to sleep so we met people here over breakfast instead. Breakfast and the staff were great!

The staff member who checked me in was new and a bit useless! She put me in a bed in a room and then a few hours later (about 10pm) told me I had to move as was the wrong room. She sold me a padlock and then came back half hour later saying she charged me wrong price as... More

I stayed at the Dragonfly for a few nights and was very happy with the service - 24 hour reception was great, the breakfast was very tasty, and the rooftop patio was a great place to hang out with a few brews. I would highly recommend this hostel. Walking distance from some great restaurants as well as the Pacific Ocean... More
