This is a very good hostel. Well located near many bars! If you are going to Lima for the nightlife, like most people, then this is a very good hostel for you! The bar in the hostel is very good and the staff is very friendly and will probably make it out to the bars with you. The hostel is... More

Like all the other reviews say, this is definitely a party hostel. The hostel staff was super nice and we arrived early in the morning after a long night of traveling and they let us crash on the couches in the lounge until our room was ready, which they gave us as soon as it was. It was a good... More

If you stay here, don't come expecting quiet long sleeps. That aside, this place was great. Freindly super helpful staff with excellent english and spanish, bar and restaurant were good, just be aware you will be strongly encouraged to be at the bar come dark. It's a really fun setup were you can easily meet fellow travellers and party through... More

This is definitely a party hostel. If that's what you want, perfect. Very friendly and helpful staff, old foosball table but it's still playable, table tennis, and a bar with happy hour. Stayed there for one night and then came back again. Got free entry to Gotica one night thanks to the hostel! Showers are nice, beds are so and... More

I only stayed for one night but I had a really good time. The staff were super friendly and accommodating. I had to change the time for my airport pick-up (with less than 2 hours notice) and they were able to do right away. The facilities were basic but clean. They also had a cafeteria and food there was okay.... More

We stayed for 3 nights and have never experienced such friendly and helpful staff. They went over and above the call of duty to advise on things to do, places to see and places to go out. Charlie, Paul, Prasilia and Andrea thanks so much! Had an incredible time and hope to be back soon

I came here as the first stop of my very first backpacking trip. This very first backpacking experience was accented by the fact I was doing as a solo traveler. Needless to say, I didn't know what to expect nor I had something to compare it to. But now that I've traveled some, I have to say that this hostel... More

I arrived after a long flight from Hong Kong at 2 am to find the hostel had cancelled my booking even after I had sent a confirmation email. The guy on the desk was good and let me sleep on the lounge till I could order a taxi and get out of there to a much nicer place Punta Hermosa... More

This is a party hostel, and for the private rooms with the ridiculously thin walls, the bar might as well be in your room. This also counts for the private room next to you, where you easily can join in on the conversation. Other than that, the location is good, breakfast is basic but ok, and the more permanently working... More

This hostel is great if you like drinking and meeting new people! We really enjoyed our stay although the private room we were in that is outside the front door was very noisy, sounds like people walking down the street talking are actually standing in the bedroom with you so I would probably opt for a dorm if we stayed...
