Alex, the owner, spent time to help us planning our trip all over Peru. His kindness and all his tips had been very helpful to us. Very good address for backpackers. Rooms are ok and the living room very cozy.

We booked this hostel online and arrived to find it completely locked up. We were greeted by a man who had just woken up and said he lived there and the owner was out. We waited close to one and half hours, owner came down from upstairs (!!) and said the hostel was no longer a hostel and they didn't... More

My friend and i stayed at The Gallery House for a week and the experience was fantastic. The place is super new and clean. The beds are super comfortable and practically brand new! The staff (Alex and Marcos) were incredibly helpful and even walked us to our bus, checked the price, and told the driver where we were going! They... More

We really really enjoyed our stay at this hostel - the rooms were good, there was a playstation 3, good film library, helpful staff, nice bar and garden area. The decor was great, the security was tight and we would have stayed longer if we had the time. And they are building more rooms and a new game room!

This hostel is very youth-oriented. They have a tv room with a big flat screen tv, dvd player, and satellite tv with some English channels. They also have a bar, dining area, video games and BBQ area outside. Once a month, or something, they have a 'club night' where they play loud music until past 5am. They played music until... More

Alex went out of his way to constantly help us. He helped sort a flight out of Lima and also offered endless advice on nice restaurants and bars to attend. The hostel has great facilities, including good free wi-fi, a playstation 3, a tv room with stacks of films, its own bar, kitchen, free breakfast and comfortable seating areas. Great... More

The hostel has a lot of space in the common areas for using your computer or just relaxing playing playstation 3. Another really helpful thing is the... More

The rooms are spacious. The common areas are quite big (TV room with lots of DVDs, garden, Playstation 3, kitchen...)... But that is it. The hostel looks old and is not well maintened (walls, chairs stained, sofas destroyed). It clearly does not look like the pictures. The rooms are a bit dirty but cleaner than the common areas. They did... More

This hostel was perfect for my friends and I. During the week it is nice and peaceful so you can chillout, but each weekend there is a party that offers something for everyone - music, dancing and a really friendly locals. The dorms are comfortable and have excellent showers nearby. Above all though, is the staff. They speak very good... More
