With 8 beds per room and only 1 toilet and shower per room it was nearly impossible to get into the bathroom. There was 1 extra shower in the hall but it was usually occupied. The rooms with 8 beds were very congested. Hardly any space to walk between beds. And nowhere to sit. Also there was never soap or... More

horrible experience, dirty hostel, with cold water, and worn out towels, breakfast is disappointing, the only positive thing about this hostel is the location, located in a safe and nice area of miraflores.

The room has rather strong musty smell. I think it basically comes from the bed spread Because the sheets are rather clean ( I hope). Internet is only available in the public place( at least in the room 106 there was no internet.) Si I can not say this is one of the best hostels.... But the price 10$ with... More

Lima is generally just a place people pass through so not much can be said about the area apart from it being in the safer Mira Flores area. Lots of amenities near by and very Western city. Free breakfast in the hostel, TV in the lounge and computers to use. We were put in a 20 bed dorm despite paying... More

I cannot stress how well-located this hostel is. It's right where you want to be in Miraflores. There is a ton of sightseeing, shopping, and dining just a blockaway surrounding Parque Kennedy and the beach-view "boardwalk" is just a ten-minute walk away. The fact that the hostel is located in a small passageway a block behind the busy intersection of... More

Fantastic hostel. Clean, spacious and friendly. Great staff. Definitely the cleanest hostel I've ever stayed in. Giancarlo was like a personal tour guide. He was brilliant so helpful and gave great advice on things to do. Location was fantastic, right in the heart of Miraflores!

The double room was nice and comfortable, even though rather expensive if you pay full price. Excellent location in Miraflores great common area, pool table, lounge and bar. Room are located further away which makes it possible to sleep quietly. Hot shower did not always work... Price is in USD however exchange rate used by the hostel when paying in... More

After they tried to overcharge my friend for some weird reason that turned out to be bogus, they tried to charge me over 3 dollars extra for a beer that the receptionist offered me for my birthday the night before. He was really nice, but that was a bit sneaky!
