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

Hostel location is ideal. Miraflores is both safe and close to many sites in Lima (Huaca Pucllana, Chocomuseo, Parque Kennedy, Larcomar). But the hostel itself left something to be desired. The rooms were far too small; each 5-person mixed dorm had 2 sets of bunkbeds and 1 single bed, leaving little room for travelers and their luggage. Breakfast consisted of... More

This was my first stay here. It's a nice hostel close to the lively parts of Miraflores. I stayed in the "Lata" room, which was, along with the communal parts of the hostel, clean and fairly quiet. No complaints here. The staff were friendly and I enjoyed my stay.

We stayed at this hostel twice and thought it was lovely. There are loads of comfy hang out spots with futons/sofas/pillows & a super cute rooftop terrace. The showers are hot, the wifi is decent & the staff are very friendly. Also breakfast changes every day (vegetable omelettes, scrambled eggs, bruschetta etc.) plus there is always toasted bread, jam, usually... More

Stayed here twice and must say the first room on the beautiful terrace was the best. It was nice and spacious with a nice ensuite. The second time I was placed in an all girls room where there was way to many beds. The bathroom was equally nice. The breakfast was nice and the staff were very welcoming to the... More

They were friendly, breakfast was nice and room was clean. Nonetheless, we stayed for three nights and they wouldn give us new towels. We ask them politely and explain that our towels wouldnt dry. They still refused. I mean, I understand their green policies but they pretended that we hanged them on the roof of terraza. Temperature was cold and... More

I stayed at Red Llama two days. The room on the first floor was way too small for 5 people and 2 rooms shared one WC and 2 showers. The atmosphere is relaxed but the people at the reception make very little effort to create a cozy and nice ambience. I asked where I could find a restaurant close by,... More
