My family and I were really pleased about this hostel! The staff (particularly the volunteers Bryan and Eduardo) was really helpful and was up all hours of the night in order to help us. It was nice to be able to relax, and the surrounding area was very safe and desirable. Larcomar was about a thirty minute walk, and there... More

If your looking for budget accommodations in the Miraflores district, this is a good option. Pretty quiet room, fairly clean for a hostel and decent bed and pillows… The bathrooms are better than camping and the place smells a bit stuffy, but can't complain for the price and would stay here again if back in Lima as its in a...

Hostel was ok, bed comfy. Kitchen was dirty and the bathroom mouldy. The walls are very thin and lack of sleep is a given as no one was courteous to the fact that people were sleeping in the middle of the night. Good location though.

As other reviewers state, the staff were amazing, people complain about the "budget friendly restaurants etc" but we found some great cheap restaurants nearby. And when we did want to go to miraflores the staff arranged a taxi for us, or even drove us in ourselves... Rooms were large and quirky and great.. Thanks again :)

The private rooms (I think it was #6) were great with lots of room and comfy beds. The staff was very attentive with organizing our busses and taxis and helping us navigate around Lima. The little dog Mr. Love is also a big bonus and all of his numerous outfit changes. I greatly enjoyed my stay here and recommend it... More

I was taken in be other reviews, and booked the place. Big mistake. The bathroom was disgusting, and I'm not sure the sheets were clean. The stairway smells, and the kitchen wasn't clean. Friendly staff is about the only good thing I have to say about it.

My girlfriend and I stayed here from a few nights. First off, the words "friendly" and "helpful" are banded about a lot - including by me - but this is definitely a place where those words are accurate. Treated more like guests in a home than a hostel. Much appreciated. The rooms are spacious. They are clean. The quirky design... More
