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

They "sold" my bed twice to incoming lodgers and i was not planning to leave yet. The first time i found out on time, the second time i found a girl sleeping on my bed! I mentioned they must pay more attention to what they're doing and i didnt appreciate being moved from one bed to the next. The girl... 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

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
