We stayed here for our first time in Peru. Its a bit difficult to find on the main street, as its only a small door leading up to the stairs. Its not a great place to stay, rooms are a bit weird. Our room was right beside the main living room, everyone would sit here for wifi access. The room... More

I'm a big fan of this hostel! Good kitchen, very affordable, great location, and comfortable! I've stayed there a couple times, and like it better than other more expensive options in the area. The online booking system can be hit or miss so maybe try to give them a call if you want to make a reservation.

The hotel location is very convinient, the price/value is reasonable. We've booked a 4pax room and it was quite spacieus. The bathroom window was towards another room which was weird but we've had a good night sleep. Which is more then enough.

We arrived at the hostel after a tiring journey from Cusco and were craving for some rest an a shower. But when we arrived, the lady at the reception couldn't find our booking. After checking several folders she called the boss Ricardo, who said that he mixed up the reservation and that the hostel is full. They called one other,... More

Bad points: frstly I was told that I couldn't use the kitchen until 11 or 12. I waited to make breakfast, I went to the rooftop to have a smoke, the owner whistled to get my attention from the bottom of the stairs, then shouted, If he wanted to talk with me he could have at least come up the...

The whole hostel feels outdated, the treatment from the staff is unpleasent.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
