The whole hostel feels outdated, the treatment from the staff is unpleasent. They keep pressuring you about everything, the whole attitude was bad. they even are cheap with the bread, giving only 2 pieces each.

A nice, quiet, clean hostel (with fresh towels daily) in a great location in Miraflores. A short walk to Kennedy Park and Larcomar shopping centre. Breakfast is basic (bread rolls, jam, butter, juice and coffee) but nice. Glad we stayed here.

First, the taxi that was supposed to pick me up at the airport was a no show. The woman at the desk in the Hostel, looked in the book and noted that no taxi had bee ordered. My room was dirty, dingy, and ill kempt. Decrepit furniture, tattered rugs. I first thought there were no sheets on the bed--but they... More

I booked this hostel via booking.com The pictures loaded under ´Mixed Dorm´ are not of the mixed dorm! - thye are the private room! I only booked this hostel due to the photos showing a nice room with single beds - this is false advertising and even tho the price of the mixed dorm is cheap, the facilities are disgusting

Stayed here for 4 nights in Sept 2013. Good location facing the main street in Miraflores. We feel safe walking around even at night. Plenty of eating choices such as cafes and budget restaurant nearby. Money changer and banks just a block away and supermarket opposite the hostel. We leisurely walk to Larco Mar Shopping centre, Miraflores beach and Lovers... More

Brilliant location on the main street, opposite a huge 24 hour supermarket and next to bars and restaurants. Our triple room was large and clean-ish, had a private bathroom and cable tv. Breakfast was basic but edible. Owner Ricardo was extremely helpful and speaks good English but is also creepy, when the hostal was full he said we could sleep... More

Hostal in very good location, in the middle of Miraflores. Breakfast basic but this is what you get in most of the places in Peru. Rooms ok, bedding and towels dirty, better used your own. Very nice roof terrace where we spent evenings. Taxi did not pick us up from the airport so I wouldn't rely on their taxi service.

This place is perfectly located, just in a middle of Miraflores, Hostel staff and owner are both nice and friendly, but you may face some difficulties if you don't speak Spanish, rates are awesome as we paid just 25 USD per night in a double room. Probably the last good point was the terrace. Breakfast is average, however it's better... More

I never actually stayed at K'usillu's Hostel, since there was a misunderstanding regarding my reservation. Since on my initial e-mail requesting a reservation I received a positive answer, only with correction of price (which I originally took from their web-page) and a request for my confirmation of that price (which I gave), I thought that I had one. Silly me.... More

My experience here was soured by an unfortunate situation with my airport transport. My flight out of Lima was in the morning and I needed to leave at 4:15am. I was told my driver would be there on time.... He was not. So I waited...and waited...and waited. I was on my way out the door to find another cab when... More
