By all accounts, the website makes this place sound like a hub of activity, close to attractions and with nice, if cheap, accommodation. It was none of these. It had a crappy vibe - it was the top floor of someone's house for starters and none of the other guests were friendly (not their fault, but the atmosphere wasn't congenial... More

Booked to stay here on the internet and made a reservation. Also after reading the hostels info section it says just email them after you have booked and they will pick you up from the station at the time your bus arrives. So we made the reservation and sent the email. After a 17 hour bus journey from cajamarca we... More

Liked: The atmosphere, the kitchen, the nice and caring host Ana, the cute little dog, the quiet environment. The important and accurate information about buses to centro & airport (as buses in Lima are quite chaotic for tourist). Simple but nice breakfast. Free coffee and tea all day. We loved the quiet environment and homely feel. It's not for people... More

But will NOT recommend walking, so catch a taxi. customer service: very helpful cleanness: place was clean and tidy bathrooms: Only 1 showers combine toilet for the dorm.

Stayed here for 3 nights and had a great time. The owner is a charming and helpful lady, not to mention wonderfully bubbly Paco! Beds are OK, dorm is spacious for 4 people and if it's full you can crash on the couch. Breakfast is included and has some of the best bread I've eaten in south america! We spiked... More

I stayed 3 times over there and I loved it. This is not a party place but a place where people can interact in the lounge. I also feel in love with the owner Ana for her concern regarding any guest staying at her place. The location is good for relaxing and getting away from the tourist area. Good place... More

I really don't wan't to say anything bad about this place since Ana, the host, was the most helpful and amazing person we met on our travels. She did everything to help us, was always cheerful and warm. She did so much for us, called us a cab and woke up in the middle of the night to see us... More

We arrived late one evening after the airline had lost our bags and it was welcoming and friendly. Ana, the owner was very helpful, giving us directions and talking about sights not only in Lima but other parts of Peru. She also let us stay an extra night (whilst we waited for our bags) on the sofas as all the... More

This was probably the most homely and one of the most intimate hostels I've ever been to. Great value, with intimate, laid back atmosphere and friendly, helpful hosts. If most of the stuff you want to do is in Miraflores or Borranco, you have to factor in the travel price to get there and back, which - if you don't... More
