I stayed here on a short layover between Lima and Panama city. The hostel is clean and the man at the desk was able to get us into a room when other hostels were booked out. I would stay here again if I return to Lima. The gentleman that worked overnight was not very helpful and seemed he forgot to... More

This hostel is clean and quiet and right next to Parque de Kennedy. Great internet and nice staff. However, I would have liked a more welcoming decor. The red faux leather furniture in the common areas makes the place feel like a cheap cafe.

Location is excellent. However we were in a 5 bed dorm but the whole floor used the bathroom in our room (it must have been the only one). There was a consistent stream of people during the night walking through the room to use the bathroom which I felt was a bit unfair when we paid for a 5 bed... More

Nice rooms and staff, fridge for common use which is always good. Breakfast vouchers for very nice food place. Good showers although no towels or laundry service. Amazing location in the beautiful miraflores, less than walking distance from the lovely parque Kennedy surrounded by many food places, bars and shops

Spent a night here with my husband while backpacking around Peru. The rooms are cheap, clean and they have really nice hangout spots all around the hostel, including a nice bar. The staff here is very friendly and helpful. We were having trouble purchasing bus tickets to Cusco and they helped me with every step to make sure I got... More

Good location on a small pedestrian street. Breakfast at the restaurant across the street is okay. Cleanliness is tolerable. However the first room I was offered looked nothing like on the picture and was a total dump (even partly used as a storage room - common guys, at least get the stuff out and wash the walls!). Sound insulation is... More

I stayed for one night and had a really good experience. The room and bathroom were very clean but most importantly the staff were incredibly helpful, particularly when I needed to print documents due to a stolen passport. The furniture in common areas is "well loved" but comfortable and the hostel overall is quiet and homey. Location is excellent, right... More

It was clean and the staff was friendly. It is right by Kennedy Park as well as many restaurants. It is a hostel so don't expect too much but just to sleep it is fine and in a great location. Instagram: @tommiesox

I cant comment on this hostel as we never got to stay. They were a no show for our pre-arranged airport pick up. We rang several times no one answered, so rang other hostels in the Lima chain - no response, emailed them and got a response 4hrs later at 1am. Given we couldn't confirm if there was a room...

First of all, Flying Dog has several hostels around Peru, and three in Lima - so careful when booking online, as you may be looking at pictures from a different one! Secondly, double-check your reservation in advance. We booked into one of their three Lima hostels via the website, but when the hostel-arranged driver picked us up from the airport... More
