We just had a shower, stored the backpacks for the day and had some beers before heading north. The staff was helpful, the place is very well located and the common showers were clean enough. They charged us around 20 soles for the shower - a bit too much but we asked around and this was the only hostel that... More

Terrible. So noisy. Expensive for what you get. Dirty beds. Would not recommend my worst enemy to stay here. The 14 man room doesnt even have a door that works and it backs onto the lobby with holes in the walls. Bed wasnt properly made. Had to py up front and no chance of money back,

My friend and I stayed here for a couple of nights in a private room and it ticked all needed boxes. The building is lovely, as is the breakfast/ bar area, and the rooms are nice and clean. The hostel staff were friendly and helpful, and we went on a free walking tour through the hostel which was a really... More

My friend and I were very satisfied with this hostel. We arrived early in the morning and were able to get a room straight away which was great. the Room was also very clean and tidy. Great showers with hot water too! We would definitely stay here again.

The staff was really helpful, provided us with great info and opportunities and had a good breakfast and bbq. The only downfall was that it was a little prizzy for a hostel and the beds were a bit dirty.

I stayed at this place for one night and found it to be a disappointment. No hot water, the window to my room did not lock, kitchen was very dirty and it was shabby in general. The redeeming feature of this place was the staff; they were very accommodating and eventually got my window fixed. The location is also great.

I came to Lima 4 days before my flight home thinking that it had very little to offer. This is not the case. I had a great time and really enjoyed this city largely due to this hostel, its freindly and helpful staff and its sick bar with pool and football table. Also has massive park accross the street where... More

Stayed here a few days with a mate while in Lima, the hostel was in a nice old building, the computers are surprisingly recentish and the bar was pretty good. Staff are friendly and helpful and the facilities are pretty good. It would be nice if there were some fans but then that wouldn't be in line with the building... More
