Excelent location nearby some of the best places in Lima . The beds and bathrooms was ok. The manager is a good advisor for another places in Peru and the people who also stay in is very nice and from all of over the world. Has a good price and is worth for it .

Friendly people, mediocre house, medium clean. Nice with a kitchen, but it gets really crowded both here and for the two bathrooms. On my 6 man dorm it slept 8 at the most. One morning I was getting up for breakfast, it slept five people on a mat in the living room too. No idea how many people were living... More

When I stayed the dorm room was very cold and the mattresses were damp so it was uncomfortable to sleep. I asked for another blanket but even that was not sufficient. The staff were friendly and helpful and there was some building and renovation work going on so hopefully these problems will be sorted shortly.

Firstly, initially we had a good experience with the lady managers of this hostel, but that turned bad later in the afternoon after we had been waiting for 6hours for our bed. There were a group of 22 skateboarders who were checking out at 12noon and we then had a bed. Then at 5pm the group could not organize a... More

The staff is what makes this place great. Very helpful and friendly. The building and amenities are solidly acceptable. Beds are not particularly comfortable, but, they get the job done. Bathrooms are clean, but definitely need work. Overall, you won't regret staying here, but, you'll appreciate other places more after staying here.

Stable and clean beds, kitchen, bathrooms and extremely helpful owners for a great price make for a great experience. Situated in a quiet residential area with corner stores just 200m away. Very recommendable!

Cheap hostels are hard to find in the Miraflores area of Lima, this one is about 15 minutes away from Parque Kennedy (the center), but was well worth the walk. The women running this hostel were incredibly friendly and helpful, even let me leave my luggage there while I visited a couple more hostels to compare. Casa del Mochilero is... More

Really liked the personal vibe there, it´s run by a family. Essentially it´s a flat with a rooftop-terrace. It does not offer much but it´s quiet and cheap and I guess just 15 beds are in there. Location is good and central Miraflores is just 10 min walking distance. No bar but you can bring your own drinks. Although nothing... More

One of my favourite hostels in Peru. As the hostel is essentially a house turned hostel the atmosphere is great. The dorms are not too big, very comfy and very clean. The living/dining room area is very homey and if you want a good hostel to meet other backpacker's in a nice costy environment this is the place. Juan and... More
