This was a great small hostel with excellent hosts, comfortable mattresses and a great setting. The hostel is walking distance from Kennedy Park and supermarkets and the courtyard is perfect for relaxing after exploring Lima. They have very knowledgable staff who can give you sights to see and the bike rental is some of the cheapest we've found. Breakfast is... More

I only stayed at this hostel for one night so my review may not be super accurate as there may have been more to see and understand at this hostel, but from what I saw, I wasn't impressed. In comparison to other hostels I've stayed at, the cleanliness was not good! I felt completely uncomforable in the bathroom. Also, we... More

When the staff are as friendly as David was to us, you can overlook the odd patch of damp or funny smell. We got a warm welcome to Ekeko and enjoyed our two nights there. The nicer double room upstairs has a nice balcony but you take your life in your hands if you try to open it! The shower... More

I stayed three nights in a single room at the Ekeko Hostel, located in the Miraflores district of Lima, Peru. David, the friendly employee working there, had arranged for me to have a taxi driver wait for me and transport me to the hostel for a charge of $21 US. My very small but clean room, located at the rear... More

The first time I stayed here it didn't leave much of an impression on me however when I went back a month later I came to see how great it was. It's cosy and the staff are excellent, I had limited time to organise a transport to the bus station at 3am and the owner took me there for his... More

The staff are lovely and really helpful, arranged for my bus tickets down south to be delivered to the hostel. Communal areas are good, nice TV and good DVD collection. It wasn't the cleanest of places and the showers were either ice cold or burning hot. Atmosphere was laid back but didn't seem like a party hostel. Kitchen was good,... More

Ekeko was clean, had hot showers, and the friendliest staff. We stayed in a private room in the rear of the hostel, which was quite comfortable. Christian and David, the hosts, gave us terrific recommendations catered to our specific requests, and once even organized a lunch to a fantastic ceviche restaurant for the people milling around the hostel. Although the... More
