Hey folks, spent a week in this hostel which is situated central in Miraflores. You have all the facilities and creature comforts within walking distance. The nearby bus brings you in the city centre in 15 Minutes for 2,50 Soles. The hostel itself is a comfortable place with a nice mixture of local and international travelers: Clean rooms, hot water,... More

I stayed at Lion during our last visit to Lima in June. Excellent location, in the heart of Miraflores, close to lots of shopping and restaurants. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly; they helped us to move around and gave us great recommendations. The hostel is very clean and neat.

This place was recommended by the passenger next to me on the flight to Lima, because I was looking for a inexpensive hostel in a good location that wasn't known for partying in the hostel. The three-story hostel is relatively easy to find - the flags help. It's within walking distance to grocery stores and Miras Flores restaurants and nightlife.... More

Paying almost S/270 for 2 nights i felt like i was robbed in broad day light. The rooms were old fashioned with the wall paper peeling, the bathroom was filthy and there... More

I spent four nights at the hostel and I liked it, it was my second time at Lions. They haver 24 hour support and pick you up from any bus station at any time. Their rooms are very clean and the hostel is very near from Kennedy Park and Miraflores.

I spent some nights in this great hostel and i felt home. People working there are fantastic and the boss always ready to give you the best service. I really recommend this place. And the position is fantastic because miraflores is central and touristic. Go for it, you will like it!!

Would not recommend this place. The staff aren't very helpful at all. We checked in the early hours of the morning (paid for the whole night) checked out after a couple hours then they would not let us keep our bags in storage or wait in a safe place until it was time for our flight.

Location is pretty good (about 5-10 minutes from the main strip on Miraflores). But the price is a bit higher than some other similar options that have better location. The room was fairly big, and the beds were comfortable, but I'd say that it's worth looking into other options.
