I arrived late in Lima with some friends of mine. We all booked a longer Peru trip and where all really excited about all the places we would visit. However, we arrived late at night in Lima and arrived at the hostel around 10:30pm. We where all very tired, so after we got our eight mans room we just felt... More

Nice place in a very quiet street. Staff member are nice, helpful and there is a peaceful garden with hammocks. I was in a double rooms, very basic (one bed and one fan, that's all !) but it was clean and I stayed only one night before catching a flight. I don't know if I could have stayed more nights... More

There was not majorly wrong with it, except for the dirty sheets, and dead cockroach that was in the bathroom and not cleaned away for three nights we stayed there. It had breakfast included which included nice coffee, bread, jam, butter and fruit, not enough to be full but not too bad.the bed next to oura was infested with termites.... More

From my former experiences in Lima I was very surprised to come into such a nice, calm hostel with a beautiful backyard and a big green park just around the corner. Lying in the hammock in the yard of this save hostel you can comfortably chill out from a long day around in Lima. The friendly hostel stuff is very... More

We stayed here for 4 nights earlier this week after arriving on a long flight from NZ. Anna Maria was there to pick us up from the airport as arranged. She was very friendly and chatty with us whilst pointing out highlights of the area as we drove through. (This cost 50soles) Erica on reception was lovely and spoke good... More

Neat hostel with a climbing wall ( didn't climb all the way up since there are no harnesses ), foosball table and ping pong table. Location is ok if you aren't planning on walking around much. It's close to supermarkets (and has a fully stocked open kitchen), but far from touristic sites. Hot showers and clean rooms. It would be... More

I stayed 3 nights at this hostel, had a double room with a private bathroom and hot shower, and Wi-Fi access for 85 Sole per night. The three nights were not consecutive ones and hence I was put at different rooms during different nights. One night I had a good room (on an upper floor) and an unsatisfactory one in... More

We stayed in this hostel after arriving at the airport from Europe. It is not in the best location, being quite distant from the centre and Miraflores if you wish to walk. However, taxis and the local busses - if you dare to use them - are exceptionally cheap and easily resolve this issue. Though it looks a little desolate... More
