We stayed here after a long 60 day trip through South America starting in Rio that finished in Miraflores LIMA. We were greeted by very friendly staff who took the time to explain the local area and offer suggestions on what to do. After staying in a lot of hostels over the last couple of months I would say that... More

The staff and residents of this hostel were extremely friendly and helpful. This hostel is in Miraflores very near the beach which was great for surfing. The dorm beds were plain but quite comfy and the bathroom was clean although the showers were quite weak. The wifi was average compared with other places in Peru but they did serve free... More

We didn't have a reservation and just came by, and with no problems got a room. The room was very basic but clean, the shared bathroom was also clean. For the second night we had to move to the sister hostel just over the street, that just opened a few days before, because ours just had vacancy for one night.... More

I went to Peru to hike Machu Picchu in the Cusco area, but stayed in Lima a few days before and returned to Lima for another 6 days later. I stayed at Backpacker's Family House on arrival to Lima. When I returned, at first I stayed at Pariwana in Lima, because Pariwana in Cusco was awesome, but I was disappointed... More

I really don't understand what the fuzz around this hostel is all about?! How can it even be a 'top choice' hostel when it is so DIRTY?! The bathrooms were really dirty and when I took a shower, the shower flooded. We had a room with twin beds and one of the beds was so worn out that I sank... More

This is an awesome hostel - it really does feel like your staying in a home rather than a hostel. I kept checking back in when I was meant to be checking out. Spacious, super clean dorm, big ensuite always with hot water, lockers. Breakfast is standard - coffee, tea, juice, bread, butter and jam! TV & DVDs, comfy couches.... More

This hostel is allright if you want a nice, simple, clean hostel. There's is wifi and a kitchen where you can put your stuff in the fridge. The beds are comfortable. The showers aren't allways warm and sometimes you will have to wait till it's your turn to go.. It's in Miraflores, a nice/save neighboorhood in Lima and there's plenty... More
