We only stayed here for a short time but it was very enjoyable! The staff was very friendly and flexible with our needs. It is located in a charming mansion with a lot of character and community feel. They offer great free walking and pisco tasting tours which were much more educational than I would have expected. I would slightly... More

I stayed for there for two weeks, directly off the plane from Canada, arriving at 4am, with my service dog in tow and the stress of the airline not managing to get my luggage on the same plane as me. The young man on the desk was wonderful; all the staff were, throughout my entire stay. They couldn't have been... More

I stayed at this hostel while in Lima. I really enjoyed how it's a mansion converted into a hostel. The staff were very friendly, and had helpful instructions for getting around Lima, along with the best restaurants near the hostel.

There are a few good things about this hostel: nice lobby, free walking tours, free breakfast (coffee, tea, bread, juice). And lots of not so great things: very noisy, especially at night. There seems to be no end to the noise, no quiet time, the staff contribute to the loudness. In the morning the staff are especially loud (i.e. before... More

I have mixed feeling about this place. I have stayed here a total of three times. My first time here was a good experience. It was incredibly noisy but we had good service by a new staff member at the time. The second and third time the service was not so good. The people were not customer service friendly and... More

I arrived at 530am, hadn't booked and was incredibly tired. But the nice young gentleman on reception was a breath of fresh air. Booked me in quickly and easily. Didn't charge or the early arrival either. The beds are COMFORTABLE, clean and the dorms have so much space! The building is very attractive and the staff do a great job... More

Went to Lima last month and stayed in this hostel for 3 nights. The location is quite convenient as it is on Main Street closed to shopping center and restaurant. The room can get very noisy at night. The hot water is unreliable. The WIFI can't be accessed if stayed in the back of hostel.

Stayed with a friend in a twin room for 3 nights after arriving from Ecuador and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Room was comfortable for the price, bedding was good quality and mattresses new. Showers were warm and powerful and the bar was a lot of fun, with good prices on cocktails and beers. Breakfast was simple, but did the job... More

This place is very good located in downtown Lima. The staff is very welcoming and the old building is very charming. I totally recommend this place. And if you want to enjoya little bit more of Peru instead of going to Miraflores that is very touristy, this is defintely the best choice.

This hostel is definitely not the best we have stayed in in South America. First of all the man at reception was very very rude. They have travellers working there for free for a bed and I always find this useless. They have no knowledge of the area. He could only tell me one place to eat and that was... More
