We got the double room with a partial view of the sea. The room was spacious. Great location. A few blocks away is a park that borders the sea. Room was overall clean, although there were some short comings. Staff was very helpful.

We had a flight to Lima so we arranged picking us from the airport. The guy helped us with our luggages. He was really friendly even his English was not good. The staff at the reception did not speak English at all. There was no key provided to us from the hostel, so when we went out and came later... More

It's ok. Very relaxed staff, which could seem rude to some people. Room was ok. Bathroom didn't feel clean. It's good for the price, and the location is great. There's a kitchen you can use and breakfast is just bread and jam like most budget places. One of the better places in Mira Flores. Room was very basic, but cleaned... More

I stayed at Inkawasi twice this January 2015 and I loved it. Great starting point of your stay in the capital. Helpful and friendly staff, clean rooms, amazing value for your money. You'll also find great bars and cosy restaurants walking distance. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Inkawasi has a really good price when you go on a budget! Rooms are ok and the service is ok! The person I liked the most was the cleaning guy! Very polite! They don't really help with carrying your bags except for the cleaning guy. That was my experience with Inkawasi.

I stayed at Inkawasi for two nights in December 2014 and loved it. Very clean hostel with helpful and friendly staff. I stayed in room 320 which came with a private bathroom and a view of the pacific. Amazing value for money at this hostel. I would definitely recommend staying here.

This hotel are not to be trusted with a reservation. We arrived on 12 Dec after an 18 hour flight at 3am to be told they had no room for us and no booking but it was clearly shown in the booking.com system and had been guaranteed with a card. We had told them of our late flight arrival time.... More

My friend and I were told when we arrived that there was 24 hour reception so we didn't need any keys to get in to the hostel. We went out at night and, when we returned, no one was there to answer the door. My friend and I were stranded outside at 2am frantically trying to get in because all... More

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
