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

We stayed for 2 nights in the Dragonfly Hostels in Miraflores in Lima. First we stayed in the dorm. You have enough place, lockers and the beds are very comfortable. 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

We slept in a 6-bed dorms and it was really quiet. The hostel is near the beach which makes a perfect place to sleep after a surf session. The staff was really helpful and friendly. I highly recommend it !

This place has a great staff and WiFi. But it is not close to the beach and the traffic noise is horrible. Not the fault of staff. The prices are some of the cheapest available in Lima and there is hot water. Upstairs patio area is the best EXCEPT again for the noise. The good news is that it is... More
