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

This place is a bloody dump! It's dirty, damp and incredibly loud (our balcony door wouldn't close). There appeared to be blood splatter on the bottom of our door, there were stains on the duvet cover and the walls/baseboards were either dirty or very moldy. Overall a real turn off. Only saving grace was Leo the front desk guy.

David the manager is very friendly & helpful with maps & suggestions for eateries & attractions. Rooms are decent and the common area downstairs feels a lot like a college dorm. Bathroom within our room has adequate hot water, though toilets have trouble flushing (similar to all toilets in Lima) Breakfast of bread and teas available. Within walking distance to... More

Pros: Friendly staff who go out of their way to help you book tours, day trips and airport transfers. Large common areas and a reasonably well-equipped kitchen. Hot water 24/7 and decent dorm beds. In the heart of Miraflores and not far from the sea, near bus routes to central Lima, and close to some really interesting archaeological sites. Also... More

I liked the Ekeko hostel. It has a nice atmosphere and the staff are great. It's in a good location and there is plenty to do around. The inka markets nearby are amazing for gift shopping! However Our room was damp and smelled fusty and the top layer of bedding didn't look particularly clean. This hostel is fine but with... More

Very good hostel, simple and does the job well for those arriving or leaving this 1-night-stop city. Staff operate shifts so desk is always manned and are VERY helpful and friendly, they will help you with anything, even locating 5 bookstores with top accuracy for us. The breakfast is simple but ample, and there is plenty of space to relax... More

Unfortunately this place wasnt great! David, the staff member is really kind and polite. We stayed in a twin room on the first floor which, for some reason, had neon posters allover the walls and a blue light on the ceiling which made everything ultraviolet. You could have a normal like as well, but I didnt really understand the need... More

This hostel is just fine...nothing really special, decent location near Miraflores (15 min walk) but only a 30 minute bus to the centre of town. It is clean and secure and reasonably cheap but just doesnt offer anything special, so depends what you want really!
