The location in barranco is great!But there was a guy by the name of Simon living in my room who started to blow lines of cocaine in the first hour I was there. Beds are dirty, lockers suck. The only good thing were the cool backpackers I met there.

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
