We enjoyed our stay very much! The hostel is just north of Parque Kennedy in Miraflores which is a hub of different events, tours, restaurants, and bars and it's a big landmark for easy taxi rides. Breakfast was nice, lots of coffee, fresh juice and fruits and a bread roll with different omelets or vegetables. Beds were comfortable and lots... More

Very convenient for Miraflores (although this did make it a bit noisy at night). Room was comfortable and en suite bathroom was one of the best we had in south america. Wifi worked well, no air conditioning but a big fan worked well. The breakfast was very small (roll with omlette or jam, some fruit, tea). The staff were the... More

The Red Psycho Llama is certainly like no other hostel. Beautifully recycled and handcrafted artworks line not only the common areas but dorms as well. Lots of common areas/ meeting places including an outdoor dining area, rooftop chill-out zone, indoor dining area, lounge, and reception. Staff are extremely helpful and their English is very good; reception is staffed 24/7 -... More

Whenever I go to Lima, I always think about staying here. The environnement and the ambiance of the place is very friendly. You can always find help and some really interesting people here. Staying at Red Psycho, also gave me a sense of responsability and solidarity. The hostel has really suceeded in being an ecological ambassador in Peru. Thanks to... More

I stayed here for a few days with some old friends and while we were here we met a great bunch of new friends! They have a great rooftop spot to hang out and wonderful breakfast! I'd definitely stay here again!

Stayed here for three nights at the end of my Peru trip and had a great experience. Hostel is clean, and rooms/bathrooms cleaned every day. Beds and decor is a bit tired and dated, but really that did not bother me at all. Showers run hot water and I had no issues with water pressure or hot water consistency. Hostel... More

The hostel was clean, there was plenty of space for the guests to hang out outside of the rooms (both inside and outside), and the staff was friendly and helpful. There was no problem for me to leave my bag there for a few days, they coordinated an airport pick up, and the hostel is just a couple of blocks... More

We arrived in lima evening after a very long day of trans-atlantic flights and all we wanted was a quiet room, comfy and with decent shower to rest our heads. Sadly thats not what we got, the double ensuite room turned out to be with a rather small bed (140*190) which was 3 matresses on top of each other (no... More

Stayed here twice while travelling through Peru. The staff were always incredibly helpful and friendly, and were readily contactable when I needed to make a last minute booking late at night. The location is great, and is near to the metro and walking distance to Barranco. The hostels eco ethos is also completely sincere (some 'eco hostels' I stayed in... More

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

Hi We are terribly sorry about the hot water problem, I’ve just check the date you stay, and in fact was the weekend we had a problem with the heater, and finally I replace it with a new on, installed next Monday. In fact we are not a party hostel, but most of our guests enjoy a nice chat with... More
