I stayed 3 nights at this hostel. The rooms are old and the beds have only one bedsheet that slides to one site, so in the middle of the night you wake up lying on the matress instead of on the sheet, which is not really hygienic. I had a private room with bathroom which was quite expensive, compared to... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in January. We felt that the location was clean, the lobby and rooms decorated in a interesting (meaning fun and unique) way. We are all about location, cleanliness and budget friendly and this site meets all of those requirements. I will add that we could hear everything from the bathroom above us. Clear as... More

Lion Backpackers Hotel is a fabulous gem in the heart of Miraflores, Lima. The staff is friendly and the price is unbeatable, We found this hotel by chance and returned each time we arrived in South America.

A nice place to stay in Miraflores district of Peru. A short walking distance from shopping, restaurants and the main square of Parc Kennedy and 7 de Julio. Staff is always helpful and Friendly. It is in an old building with the character of squeaky floors. A simple breakfast is included.

We stayed for 5 nights there and enjoyed our stay. Arturo the manager was friendly and helpful with recommendations. The rooms are small, but have all you need. Breakfast is like everywhere in Peru, bred, marmalade, cafe and a package juice. Miraflores is the best place to stay in. Lima by far and also the safest. We would recommend this... More

A very humanized hostel with a lot of backpackers, nice rooms, free breakfast, good warm welcoming atmosphere. Very close to all the good places in Miraflores, restaurants, beach, bus stations, parcs. Very good quality vs price

The staff were friendly enough, though when I asked on check-in whether there was wifi, they said yes, knowing it was broken (it turned out there was another signal that worked, weird). My room smelled like old carpet (probably because it had an... old carpet) and no amount of keeping the window and door open could change that. On the... More

At 32 soles in a 4 beds dorm I initially thought that it was reasonable. The temperature of the hot water for showering was however totally inconsistent and it really made a good shower difficult. The cleanliness of the shared bath / toilet was bad too. The walls of the dorms were not sound-proof. The noise and conversations from the... More
