I had a decent experience at this hostel. Nothing particularly spectacular about it, but nothing horrible either. Decent beds, nice showers (although one of the women's bathrooms was out of order when I was there), fair kitchen, okay bar/common room, okay location. One warning is that although this hostel is close to some city landmarks like museums and the Plaza... More

Hi, I think that even if it is not the best hostel in Lima, I definitely would recommend it to anyone who wants to meet the old style houses in Lima. The hostel crew is very nice and young, always trying to help out with all the information. They also have a inside travel agency which can organize all types... More

We stayed here for one night. Can't really complain at $28.00 a night - it was fine for us for the one night. Area seems a little rough - we stayed in Miraflores the next night and it seemed much safer. Make sure you request the double room away from the water heater rooms (number 14)... it runs all night...

When I checked into the 1900 on a Saturday evening, thundering music was blasting in from a pop concert across the road, to be matched by the music in the bar and people shouting to make themselves heard above the noise. I nearly checked out the next morning but kept calm and carried on This was despite being disturbed on... More

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
