I stayed there twice during my Peru trip. Both times in a single room with with bath. Place is clean. Location is very good. Room and grounds were clean. Staff was good and spoke enough English. Security was adequate. Room was a bit old and sparse but fine for the price. Couldn't get wifi in room but in lounge area... More

I've done my fair share of backpackers and this one is just a pleasure being at. Always clean, or being cleaned, it's very unlikely that you'll even go into a bathroom where there's water lying around - unless of course you go in directly after somebody. Within walking distance from a variety of restaurants, shops, bars and clubs plus then... More

A great hostel with price ranges for every budget. We stayed in a room with private bath. Hot water was consistent and reliable, although the shower head could have used a cleaning for a steadier stream. The room was clean and spacious, the bed was comfortable, and the decor was cozy. A great location in Miraflores, close walking distance to... More

Clean, good service, problems were quickly resolved, staff was kind and competent. Kitchen was kept very clean by the staff, which was greatly appreciated since some hostel kitchens become very dirty very quickly. The bathrooms were spacious and well lit, which was nice. Strongly recommend it!

Location is good because it is close to Miraflores district and you can goo by foot. The service was OK. We asked for an advanced time for breakfast because we had to attend a course and the breakfast started too late. They kindly offered us the breakfast earlier, but not with a lot of options to choose and not very... More

be careful, the matrimonial rooms are in termite infested wooden sheds only a fence away from the street. Noisy at night with car alarms, horns and people walking past all hours. otherwise a good location and safe part of the city.

Hey there everyone!! I want to recomend this place to everyone. I had a good time there, rooms were clean, staff was really nice and the breakfast was more than fine. There is a supermarket really near this place where you get everything necessary. Since the hostel is in Miraflores you walk like 5 to 10 minutes and you are... More

They also have a ping pong table, darts and other games inside the... More
