Lion Backpackers is located in the Miraflores district and quite close to the attractions. The hostel itself is a bit rustic with lukewarm water in the showers. For nearly $30 you would be expecting a lot more. The thin blanket on the beds is not adequate and slips off during the night. If they slashed their prices by 50% that... More

The hostel is really nice, with a warm sunny feel to the building (very orange yellow color oriented). The breakfast is also nicely laid out, including a juice and fruit in addition to the standard rolls and drinks. Everything is kept very clean. We were in a dorm room, which had its own bathroom - very homey, the bathroom was... More

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
