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

Overall experience was not good, staff was not friendly and rooms were old. Not much facility in the place and our room was too far from the wifi router so we didnt have wifi in the room. The only good thing about the place is the location as it is in a very nice and safe area.

Great location, clean rooms did not use the kitchen. The staff was excellent especially Christian who helped us when our debit card was stolen. Has a little bar and beautiful little garden/lounge area to hang out in.

Easy to find, centrally located in Miraflores which is exactly where you want to be in Lima. We stayed for five days here and enjoyed our stay. Hot showers, fast, free internet, kitchens, laundary service- a weary backpacker couldn't ask for anything more. The staff were very friendly and spoke excellent English -which is not always easy to find in... More

Very loud and dirty. Kitchen is barely usable. One of our blankets had dried blood (or what appeared to be) on it. They offer breakfast, but hours are variable and limited, so we never got any. I don't think I'd stay here again, but I do recommend staying in Miraflores or Barranco.
