We stayed here for 5 nights and enjoyed our stay. Hostel is on the main road in Barranco so it's easy to get to. It's also close to that famous bridge, supermarket, ATMs and many restaurants. We never felt unsafe here. When we arrived, we were able to choose if we want small, but quiet room, or big, but more... More

I spent 6 nights here in between two tours I was originally in a room above the gym and then we booked a twin room which ended up being on the street. It is what it is, there is going to be noise practically anywhere in the hostel, I personally didn't find it a problem but I sleep with headphones.... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights when first arriving in Peru. I knew from previous reviews that noise might be a problem, and I specifically requested a quiet room, located away from the gym. When we arrived well after midnight, we were assigned to a room at the back of the property, which the manager assured us would... More

Hotel has all you need, good beds and decent bathrooms. Staff is very friendly! Basic breakfast, good location, building is not very caracteristic though. One disadvantage: the gym nextdoor is pumping music from 6am. If they fix this I'd come back.

I was starting a tour of peru in Lima and this is where they put me. It is an easy walk to supermarket, atm and to a view of the ocean. There are some nice restaurants nearby. But most of the sites I wanted to see were in different areas (so I took a van tour). Staff was pretty friendly,... More

Staff were accommodating and helpful. Great location in barranco, close to many restaurants. Room was simple but clean, a bit cold at times. Would've liked extra blankets. Breakfast is basic but not bad. The decor is all a bit odd but it's not an issue. Good value overall.

I stayed at Hostal Gemina April 2-3 and 10-16, 2013. The hostal is a great value and the simple but comfortable rooms were spotlessly clean and neat. The staff is very accommodating. The rooms that I stayed in were interior and quiet, and I slept well and did not notice any external noises. The other reviews on this Hostal accurately... More

A great place to stay in Barranco with good transport to central Lima. Although not large, the rooms were comfortable. Plenty of hot water. Large public area where the very basic breakfast was served. Quirky antiques everywhere giving the place real character. Wifi only worked in the public areas. Friendly helpful staff.

This place is really good value for what you get. It was a bit hard for me to find at first because I arrived into the city after midnight and the front gates leading into the area was locked. But the front desk clerk was extremely alert and came out to get us. Check in was quick. Elevators are the... More

I stayed here for 9 days from 9th-18th June after returning from Huaraz. As my Spanish was not that great, Cesar, the day hotel receptionist was a godsend. He spoke English very well and helped me with any queries that I had. The room I stayed in 300 (reasonably quiet room at the back) cost 81 soles a night, or... More
