“Really nice place in a safe and nice neighborhood in Miraflores. There are coffee shops and supermarkets nearby and a really helpful staff. We stayed at 3 different rooms, the ones with doubled bed are quite good, however room number 4 (three beds) isn't nice at all: hard mattresses and a bit smelly. overall a great experience.”

We were only staying one brief night in Lima and chose what we thought sounded a good value hostel from the Lonely Planet book. However the outside certainly did not instil confidence and this theme carried throughout the rest of the hostel. It was dark and dingy. The bathrooms were dirty and one had absolutely no running water in the... More

I stayed here just one night, as the private single rooms were cheap and I wanted a break from dorms. Breakfast was included, although nothing to write home about. The location isn't great but it's an easy enough walk to Kennedy Park and the surrounding area. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Recommended for those who need a break from... More

The host is really friendly and their advice were helpful for our visit of Lima. He also was willing to make some arrangement for us since we arrived super late to check in. Our room was decent, well decorated and there is hot water (which is not that common based on our experience).

The staff is really friendly and helpful, specially David! Other than that, the hostel is not outstanding: the rooms are fine, bath is a little cold, breakfast is good and WiFi works fine. Location is not that great, about 15 minutes walking to Miraflores main attractions. Also, it is not a good hostel if you're looking to meet people and... More

Lima doesn't have the same backpacking district like, for example La Paz, so it is not as easy to find a cheap hotel or a hostel. You have to do some walking. Ekeko would be a decent option in Miraflores, except it's a tad noisy in the mornings from all the people sitting in the common space. The young guys... More

I booked (and had to pay 16 dolars or so, in advance) 7 days with my girlfriend at this place. They said they would pick us at the airport, but didn´t show up. Arriving there, we went for a look at the double bed room: the walls were very dirty, not to mention the bed and the bathroom. There was... More

Overall good experience. The gentleman working the desk was super friendly. It's right next door to huaca pucllana, so, you can check one thing off your list without a taxi! Room was clean and solidly acceptable. Same for the bathroom.

Ekeko is a normal hostel in Miraflores, the touristy area of Lima. We stayed in one of the private rooms with a double bed and private bathroom. There was honestly nothing to complain about. Everything worked and the water was okay, sometimes hot but never freezing. There is a kitchen you can use, as well as a laundry machine which... More
