In the middle of miraflores and only 10 minutes from parque Kennedy the hostel is in a good location. Metro bus to city centre also in walking distance. Room was adequate, but quite noisy due to proximity to street and hostel bar. Maybe ask for one a little away from that. Shared bath was small and relatively clean. Since you... More

We arrived in Peru after a very long flight and delayed connectiond from Santiago. Luckily we hadnt arranged a pick up, but had been given very good instructions on grabbing a cab. So off we went . Upon arriving we were a bit concerned that the exterior was a bit grey and drab. However once inside the warm welcome was... More

Plenty of space to spread out and the double bed gave a comfortable sleep. Staff very helpful and arranged cheaper ticket than I could... More

We stayed here for one night. They made a mistake on our reservation, we reserved months ago asking for a 1 bed couple room, but they gave us a two beds room instead. And our "private" bathroom is connected to the public bathroom in the hallway (the wall was detached halfway from the ceiling which permits tranfer of sound and... More

They serve a nice breakfast, what is included in the price! They have also a really nice terrace to hang around. In the second night we slept in a private... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. As a family of 5 - parents and three adult children we stayed in the family room. Apart from the very hard bed our son slept in - on the second night he used his blowup camping mattress on top- everything was fantastic. We had moved from a hotel in the old town and... More

We stayed here for two nights at the end of October and were dissapointed at the standard of the room we had. The bathroom sink was blocked and therefore difficult to use, and one of our towels were not very clean. Having said that, the hostel was in a very good location and the staff were very helpful. Overall, it... More

Thank you for your comments, it's always help us to improve. About the room standard: we are an hostel, and so we always manage to offer the best relation quality and price so you could stay on private room ensuite for a very low budget in Miraflores (as you notice our location is an advantage). Therefore we doesn't lower our... More
