Great location! Rooms were fine and breakfast was too. Stayed here for 2 nights before a month long expedition in Peru and it was a great start to our trip. Would definitely return here. I also have to add the marmalade with our rolls at breakfast was outta this world!!

The Hotel is really well situated in a quite neighbourhood, the connections to the centre are so good, but the personnel is not so good, they were a little bit rude and not so helpful. Our room was dirty and very wet. The breakfast really poor. I'll definitely would not recommend it.

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights before flying back home. We stayed in a matrimonial room with a private bathroom. It was easy to book, Miguel was quick to respond to email. It was clean and there was a fan, which helped with drowning out any noise at night. It seemed to have a more social atmosphere... More

We have encountered a lot of rude or uncaring staff over our months in South america but this particularly pissed us off. We asked reception about a place to do our laundry. They recommended us a place down the street. The laundry place said come back tomorrow at 12, which we did, and then said come back in a few... More

The Good: -They have camping in their parking area which I thought was great. The cost is $2 less than a dorm room (18 Soles vs 23). -Location is pretty good The Bad: -They told me all services were included in camping, including breakfast. After two days of being served breakfast, the third day they said it wasn't included for... More

We had two nights in Lima and were looking for a cheap stay to finish our Peruvian journey. The hostel is very well situated in Miraflores, next to many bars and restaurants. We had a double room with private bathroom. The bathroom was ok with hot water in the shower. The room had terrible lighting - I could not read... More
