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

I liked Ekeko a lot. Staff is superfriendly and helpful (recommended restaurants are great). Dorm was a little bit stinky amd shared bathrooms could have been cleaned better and more often. Kitchen didn't look too clean either. Breakfast was good (bread, marmelade, butter, coffee and tea). Atmosphere was great. Would def. recommend Ekeko. Only thing I wouldn't recommend is ordering...

Very friendly little hostel in a quiet safe neighborhood in Miraflores. A Huaca pyramid is right around the corner and you can go for a cool tour around the ruins for a few soles. The cliffs above the beach are within walking distance, and buses to Barranco and downtown are a block away and not hard to use. Kennedy park... More

We stayed here for two nights at the beginning of April to start our Peru trip. I would highly recommend staying in MiraFlores - the area is safe and picturesque with lots of places to eat and see etc. The hostel itself is a bit average, our room was a twin private - beds were okay the room was quite...

We had a great time in Ekeko, the rooms are clean and nice, the commun area is big and really comfortable to hang out and meet other travelers. The Hostel has a great spot next door to Inca ruins (one of the sightseeings in Lima) close to supermarket, Inka market and busstop. David who works here is a great help... More
