I stayed 5 days at Red Psycho Llama having basically picked it based on the name. The staff are the nicest that I've ever encountered at any hostel and were very helpful and informative. The hostel is located in Miraflores which is lovely and safe is close to the buses for the museum district and historical centre. Decor and eco-focus... More

I think this hostel is the best in Miraflores. Nothing complain about location,price,room. The best thing is receptionists are so hospitable,which is the difference from other hostels and is most important thing for tourists especially who don't speak Spanish.

First place we stayed when arriving in Lima and loved it. The staff is super friendly, incredibly helpful and giving. They really make you feel like friends right away. From the lounge to the rooftop hang out area, comfort and security was never lacking. We loved the overall theme of the decor and attitude on recycling and environmentaql awareness. The... More

My friend and I stumbled across this place after struggling to find a room in Miraflores late at night. We were so happy that we came across this place, the lady at reception was so friendly and really made us feel at home. We stayed in the 'matrimonial' room, the only one they had left and it was sweet and... More

The Red Psycho Llama is an amazing place to stay in Lima. Unfortunately I was only there for 1 night but it was awesome. I was picked up at the airport by Luis, the transfer driver from Red Psycho Llama and he immediately made me feel like we were good friends. We discussed nightlife, his favorite futbol team, where to... More

This hotel was just Ok. We had a private room with two beds but we could hear people coming and going from their rooftop bar. There was no hot water during our stay (get used to that idea when travelling in Peru on a budget). The staff was not particularly knowledgeable about the area, or overly helpful in arranging transport,... More

Stayed in the five-bed mixed dorm. We were the only three in the room for three days, so ended up being private. Showers have warm water with decent pressure. Breakfast was standard bread, jam and tea plus juice and a little something extra each day, like pancakes or veggie Sandwiches. Not many people stay here which makes for good nights... More

We stayed for one night for about $15 each in a twin room which was actually a sort of split bunk room a bit like a prison cell. For one night it was fine to crash - the beds were actually really comfy - and it comes with its own shower room next door which is good. The communal areas... More

We stayed at this hostel for 5 nights. It is well located in Miraflores and is far enough from the main streets that's its not too noisy. Breakfast are Ok and the staff are excellent. There are excellent restaurant within easy walking distance and the Metropolitana (bus system) is within easy walk (5 min) to take you downtown Lima, in... More
