Stayed here with my boyfriend for two nights, firstly the location is pretty great. It is right near the main square. It felt very safe to us, didn't worry about walking back to the hostel at night. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Our main issue with the whole stay was the lack of hot water. It was non... More

A big thank you to the fantastic team at the red psycho llama hostel. This hostel is small, quiet, and quirky. Located in prime position to access the main square and bus station to access downtown. The staff are so friendly and helpful. Lockers for belongings. Small kitchen facilities, and a nice cooked breakfast surprise included to break up the... More

We were traveling together with another couple and opted for the mixed dorm room and got the one at the roof top. Not only for the price, this was really worth a stay. Welcoming and excellent English speaking people, clean (for hostels) and fresh rooms, very safe area in the best area In Lima - miraflores, and a very cozy... More

This is a very nice and comfortable hostal at a great rate. Breakfast is sufficient. People from all over come and go, but it is not noisy. Great location for safety - in Miraflores. To go downtown, walk 3 blocks to the bus station - dedicated bus lane for no traffic. Only problem is the buses get incredibly crowded. Keep... More

Well situated in Miraflores, this youth hostel is clean and its staff is very friendly and happy to help. I stayed one night in a five-persons dorm when I arrived in Lima and will certainly go back there on the way home. In two words: I recommend !

I started out in a private room for my first night and booked 2 more nights in this hostel because of the convenience, cleanliness, and security. They have incredibly kind staff members, particularly Luis, the airport pick up taxi driver, who waited 2 hours for me at the airport when my flight was delayed. They also stored one of my... More

My mother, who is very high maintenance and thinks that staying in a nice hotel is roughing it, loved staying at Red Psycho Llama! We stayed in the Plastic room which I think has the best view. The wifi works well all over the hostel, the breakfasts are delicious, your room is cleaned every day. I have traveled all around... More

Our 5 person room (Papel) was too crowded with no storage or floor space for luggage. The bathroom was way too small for the number of people. It had one toilet stall and two showers in a very small space to serve 4 rooms. On the positive side, the location in Miraflores was nice. Breakfast was generally pretty good but... More

Overall, the establishment and location are good, and it's a great deal for the amount of money you pay for it, we just had a poor first night. Our flight got in around 8:30 so by the time we got checked in and settled it was around 10 and we were dead tired. We had been traveling for the whole... More

Staff is welcoming and hospitable. Breakfast and wifi are provided. Working bathrooms + hot showers and plenty of lounging space on the main floor. This is not a luxury hotel. This is a hostel. It provides the bare necessities and a comfortable stay for a reasonable price. It is also centered in the heart of miraflores and close to a... More
