First the positives: good location,good facilities, and sometimes helpful staff (the guy was great) Negatives: small room and ants in our bed! We expected more since it was recommended in lonely planet, but a pattern seems to be that once a place is in the book, quality slips and prices go up. The night before we stayed in family club...

Good value, and situated in a quiet part of Miraflores, but overall not particularly impressed. Had the room nearest reception, room was ok if a bit bare; 2 beds, a mirror, and a chest of drawers. Not expecting a modern hotel, but it felt rather tired and dull. Beds were ok in terms of comfort. However the room was pretty... More

Stayed a night here in July, the receptionist was super friendly and helpful and was able to answer all our questions about the city. The room was clean with a big bathroom and hot showers. Breakfast was standard hostel breakfast. Good social hostel with comfortable communal area and big TV.

The place is located close to beach in miraflores, not too far from center of the district. I only got cold showers. Friendly staff and pick up from airport costs 60sol. It's really a backpacker place, don't expect more and the place is good:)

Decent backpacker accommodation. Good location and staff were very helpful, but owner is a bit of a tool. This is evidenced by his defensive responses to fellow travels complaints on Hostelworld and Hostelbookers. A sour disposition that can be felt throughout the hostel when he´s around. He seems to be riding the recommendation received in the Lonely Planet for his... More

The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean. There is a nice terrace and sitting room where you can chill and chat with other travellers. Perks include wifi, lockers and breakfast. The shower in our room was spacious and the water was hot. We will be staying here again!

The hostel is very silance, no significant trafic around the rooms. The beach is about 8minutes walk, park Kennedy not more 15. All the stuff are friendly, ready to help. Rooms are okay, bath rooms are clean, but not new, but in this catagory no surprise. Breakfast simple :) Only one negative: I could not meet Mr.Hotwater within three days... More

This hostel was a nice place to stay at. We met some cool travelers here and got good rest as well. The workers here were also very kind and helpful. It was pretty clean too and I didn't really face any issues at this hostel.

A (relatively) cheap and cheerful place. They provided a taxi service from the airport (for around USD 21). The rooms are a bit damp and not too clean -- but perhaps that's because of Lima's climate. The bathrooms tend to get congested in the morning and as others have pointed out, are not too well maintained. The breakfast was nothing... More

I stayed at Backpacker's Family House for a total of four nights distributed on three visits. What makes this hostel a great choice is the super friendly and attentive staff, the clean facilities, great location and comfy beds. Warm showers and lockers too! And I was also able to store my excess stuff there safely for a good week. But... More
