Had a one night to spend in Lima, and walked up to the Flying Dog with three friends. Found the front desk incredibly nice and helpful. The hostel was a good size, with two full service kitchens, a TV room, and an incredible third floor lounge with a view of Parque Kennedy. The dorms are right next to the street,... More

The other hostel, east side, has rooms that open onto the kitchen with high windows and it can be noisy plus the water pressure is very low. The stall in the main hostel were very friendly and the breakfast at the nearby park... More

I can only comment on the Diez Canseco location, but it has been my worst hostel experience in three months of traveling. This is mostly due to the staff who were unfriendly and unwelcoming. They provided absolutely no information at all about Lima and barely acknowledged guests. One of them was deliberately rude and treated me as though I was... More

We booked this place based on their website and as their card was at another hostel. They have good security but that is pretty much it. We stayed 2 nights.The receptionist at night was a bit unfriendly and more interested in the show she was watching on her computer. We were lucky to have a room with a tiny window... More

I came to this hostel as a recommendation from a friend. I should have killed her! I only stayed for one night and didn't sleep at all. It was very hot and uncomfortable. The window in our room was smashed so all the mosquitos came in and attacked us. Not only that, the hostel cats were able to enter our... More

When you book into the Flying Dog make sure you know which one it is....there are three right in the same neighbourhood. When I booked I thought I was staying in the newer one but I was sadly mistaken....I was at the run down one across the street. The staff was nice and helpful but that was about the only... More

This is a really safe, clean, and comfortable hostel and at an excellent cost. There are plenty of activities within walking distance and the staff is forthcoming, welcoming, and full of good information. Have fun!

The important thing to note is that this backpackers is located in the safest part of Lima for international travelers. There's nothing special about this hostel. It's not the cleanest, or the prettiest, or the newest. However, the staff are very sweet and informative. The location is quite nice. All of the basic necessities are available. There are helpful travel... More
