Can't recommend this hostel at all - before going out to dinner with friends we searched the whole hostel for a staff member to confirm night time access with no luck. Rang the bell for 40 minutes before giving up and luckily being given a bed for the night at 511 hostal. When we went back to pick up our... More

I have traveled for the passed 9 months through central and South America. Inkawasi is the nicest hostel I have ever encountered. I stayed in a private room on the 3rd floor February 2014. Very spacious room with a full size bed, soft comforter, clean white sheets, squishy pillows, large wood framed window, hardwood floors, thick wood door, built in... More

I stayed in this hostel for a couple of nights with my boyfriend and we loved our room. It was at the top of the building and had a great ensuite bathroom that was very clean and had a good shower. The building itself is lovely with nice furnishings and it was easy to meet other travellers here too. Great... More

Unfortunately I can't recommend the hostel as the bed smelled like pee and blanket was dirty. Furthermore the room smelled moldy. Bathroom was ok. The breakfast was included but only rolls and jam was on the table + tea, thats it ... insufficient. Atmosphere wasn't good either. That resulted in 2 points only. For one night it could be fine...

I stayed for two nights in a private room at this hostel. My experience overall was pretty good, great location, clean bathroom and cool atmosphere. My only complaints were the following: the bed which was very stiff and it gave me back pain; one morning it was loud around the house, a lady was calling a kid named MARCO!!! very... More

Miraflores is a great place to stay in Lima & this is a lovely hostal. Slightly expensive but worth it, especially if you need a break from travelling through Peru. Fabio is a quiet & very helpful owner who speaks English.

We stayed 3 days at this Hostal in June 2012. Just got back from a wonderful stint in S.A. We had the greatest stay, very clean and quiet. We paid 100 soles a night for a double room, with hot showers and free breakfast (coffee, tea, buns and jam). There is a grocery store 10mins walk from the hostal and... More

I stayed at Inkawasi after friends of friends had stayed there and had recommended it. The price was just unbeatable at $35 dollars a night (if I remember properly), especially considering the location in Miraflores. And that included breakfast. Sold! Ok, so if you're mainly about the price - then you should go here. Can't find cheaper deal around here.... More

I only want to say one thing about this nice hotel in Miraflores; my friend forgot his wallet at the free internet point and the day after they gave him back with all credit cards, documents and money. Do You need anything else to be sure about the safety of this place? We paid 120 Soles a night for a... More
