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

The hostel is in a great location, it is clean & the staff are very friendly. We stayed in a private room, the entrance was through the roof top bar & even though the window looked out onto the bar we didn't have any problems with noise. The free breakfast does the job: bread & tea. Would recommend.

I had the worst room I've ever stayed in, otherwise it's a great place. Don't pick room number 9 - it's a single room by the bar and their rubbish storage corner and the place people sit at night (11pm quiet time is not enforced). So essentially you get to sleep late, can get woken up during the night and... More

I stayed here on my very first night in Peru (and first night in South America) speaking very limited Spanish and I would definitely recommend this hostel to any traveler - especially first timer's in Lima. The hostel staff was incredibly helpful and reassuring and had a lot of information on local excursions and destinations within Peru. I stayed in... More

Friendly, helpful and inexpensive. I came to them while I was traveling thru Lima for the night I returned almost three weeks later with no reservation and they remembered my name and was even more nice to a tired traveler. Definitely make this a place to stay on your trips thru lima cause they multiple locations!!
