When we checked in they couldn't seem to find us in their system and gave us a room in their hostel across the street.., Family Club House in... More

This was one of the best hostels of my South America trip. The staff were extremely friendly and happy to explain the area and help with things to do. The rooms were nice and suprisingly quiet for a hostel. The breakfast was basic but fine and the location was close enough to Miraflores centre, and good for restaurants, bars, and... More

We stayed for two nights at this lovely backpacker. We had a privado, which was like a little appartement. It was very clean, staff was very friendky and helpful, and it is close to the famous la mar restaurant. a bit away from kennedy park, but we still would stay here again.

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

When I returned, at first I stayed at Pariwana in Lima, because Pariwana in Cusco was awesome, but I was disappointed... More

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
