We had a private room for my husband and I which was sparse, but exactly what you pay for when you stay in a hostel. The big downside was that there was NO FAN. It was so hot. The window only opened half way but it opened up onto the main roof top area where people congregate and can see... More

Pros: Great location in Mira Flores, close to the beach front, shops, bars and restaurants. Friendly, helpful staff on hand and decent kitchen facilities. They also have lockers in the rooms. The roof top was nice and they sold good, microbrewery beers. Cons: Dorms are a bit small and the beds are rock hard. The lockers are also too small... More

I was spending only one night in Lima on my way from Chile to the US. I arrived pretty late at night and left around noon, so I can't really say that much about this place, but it was clean, staff was helpful and friendly, and I slept well. The vibe was pretty friendly and I met several people during... More

great location! Walk to beach and plenty of shopping around, including a supermarket for cooking cheap meals. The staff are really nice too. Can't get wi-fi in the rooms though. Place is clean but could have better security. Very much relies on a trust system.

I really enjoyed my 2 nights stay at this hostel. The staff was very helpful , friendly, did their best to guide me around the city in Miraflores. They also spoke english which was great. The highlight of this hostel, is the rooftop terrasse on the second floor . You can go read a book while listening to the band... More

I stayed at the Dragonfly over a week and really enjoyed it. Stuff is the best and everything works very well. There is a nice roof top terrace where you can meet people and chill out, hot showers and good kitchen. Absolutely nothing to complain, I wish I could go back there and stay more time! Adios from cold and... More

Nice hostel at a great location in Miraflores. I only stayed there a few nights and didn't get to enjoy any of their BBQ nights or parties but the atmosphere was nice and friendly. The staff is really helpful. The room i stayed in was overlooking the main street so it got pretty noisy in the morning - but you... More

I stayed in a single room that was just behind the bar and next to their empty bottles collection. So during BBQ nights and almost every morning, it would get pretty noisy and there's no way to sleep. What's nice is that the room, along with the other single or twin sharing rooms, it faces the common balcony area so... More

This hostel is in a great part of Miraflores. You can walk just a few blocks and see cat park or a few blocks the other direction and see Miraflores boardwalk. There are some really good restuarants just near the hostel for lunch (menu for 10-14 soles) google or ask for Las dos Puertas they are all near this one.... More
