Booked a transfer from Lima Airport which worked perfect. Duncan welcomed us in a nice way and gave us all necessary information we needed. The guesthouse is nice located in Miraflores pretty close to the sea. Rooms were large, nice beds and more/better breakfast than we expected.

The place is super cosy! Super friendly staff! The rooms are very clean, just like the rest of the house! Good breakfast! WiFi works perfectly! There is a book exchange and there are a lot of movies that you can watch in your room! We recommend this place!!!

We had a lovely room, initially for 3 nights, but because our travel plans were disrupted the lovely hostess (Saudi) let us come back for another night and then another night. All spotlessly clean. Great location and good breakfast. Thank you!

We stayed here twice, before and after our trip in and out of Iquitos from Lima. The hostel is in the process of re-opening after extensive renovations and extensions, and is now a really nice place to chill out. The reno was top class and the rooms the best we have to date in Sth America with private bathrooms, plus... More

Never actually got to stay here, as the hosts unbelievably told us they didn't have a room for us, when we booked it with them via email 6 months previously. Two weeks before we were due to arrive, they sent an email saying that due to ongoing building work, they couldn't accommodate us? They included the name of another hostel... More

Of course when the reservation was made I had hoped to have the renovation and building work finished but Its a fact of life that building work often takes longer than planned. Unfortunately I had to cancel this guest because the hostel simply was not going to be ready in time. I wrote 2 weeks prior to her reservation and... More

Nice lady and her daughter that runs the place but the lay doesn't speak a word of English. The place is apparently part Peruvian part British. Turns out some British guy owns it and this poor woman who can't speak English runs it. Mould in bathrooms and all over the Walls and ceilings of our room. We walked out after... More

I do not understand and find it strange that 2 very critical reviews are posted on exactly the same day - January 2014. Considering that the hostel closed on December 1 2103 for extensive building and renovation and in January 2014 there were no guest staying. More

We spent 1 night there, and the lady (owner?) was very nice and helpful. Good breakfast too. Nice, quiet and safe place. Pleasant patio. Just a remark: our room was very dark (small windows, weak lightening), quite fun for "the lighthouse" :-)

We stayed at the lighthouse for two nights. We found it a nice place, safe area and overall a great value. Although some may prefer more extravagant places to stay we were quite content by the cleanliness, location and price point.

I stayed here with my 10yo daughter at the beginning of our 3 month SA trip. It is a bit out of the way, but was a nice quiet start to our adventure. It is within walking distance (25mins) of the centre and beach, and has a great supermarket with the best bread/cold cuts selection we had during our entire... More

We have had our fair share of hostel stays whilst in Peru and Ecuador but this is our favourite. The place has a nice feel to it from the off and sure enough it is a quiet, clean and very well run hostel. The good: - The room was clean and comfortable particularly the shared bathroom room we had upstairs.... More
