Its an alright place if you really need a place to stay and you are on a budget. But if you are really on a budget you should probably stay out of Miraflores and maybe Lima altogether, because outside of Lima you can find private rooms for the same price as a dorm room at this hostel (such as near...

The room was nice. The bed was comfortable. It was a little musty when we walked it. The air also did not work. The dish tv did not work either. The shower ran out of hot water in the morning. There was construction going on directly outside our room and woke us up early. The Internet worked in the common... More

Reasonable prices for what you get - clean, quiet rooms, friendly staff, free fast Wi-Fi, hot water, nice common areas overlooking Parque Kennedy, simple breakfast, help with organizing airport transfer. Really good value.

Placed in the best possible locaion in Miraflores, fully equipped, and very comfortable. This hostel allows you to experience this part of the city like you should. We stayed in a private room and it was great!

Great location, area has everything you need. Our room was a private, No16, the floor was disgusting, mold in the corners, took my white socks off they where black! No hot water, and one of the towels smelled like wet dog. The staff where ok, would of been nice to show us around the hostel! For breakfast you have to... More

Stayed here for two nights in June 2015. The hostel is fairly basic but clean. Staff are quite friendly. The hostel has a bar and kitchen facilities. Free breakfast is included which was very handy. The staff can help with organising day tours or transport to your next destination. Only complaint I would have is that the bar was very... More

We stayed for 5 nights. The hostel is in a great location within the Miraflores district. We stayed in two different rooms on our stay - the deluxe queen room (overlooking the park, with en-suite, TV and air conditioning), and a twin with private bathroom (no windows). Both rooms were fine, the deluxe obviously being the pick of the bunch... More

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
