This place was definitely our worst stay in Peru. Common bathrooms were very poorly equipped and maintained and we decided not to use them. When we asked the staff about good restaurants in the neighborhood they just mentioned the mediocre restaurants they were associated with. The 'restaurant' they direct you to for your included breakfast wasn’t open after twenty minutes... More

I was supposed to stay here for 2 nights but i got the heck out after one night. The entire place, including the dorms, wreaked of cigarette smoke. They started blasting music at about 8pm and it goes on until late in the night. I asked a staffer to turn in down and she barely touched it, so good luck... More

This Hostal has a great location! We stayed 4nights in a private with ensuite bathroom. We where going to switch rooms when we arrived because we got two twin beds instead of a double but then we saw the cleanest bathroom we have had our entire travels. We didn't switch. Staff was fantastic very helpful. Breakfast was tasty we tried... More

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

Good location but try and get in the main hostel on the west side if the park. 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
