This is a simple hostel, booking is done online. Victor always responds quickly. You get picked up at the airport. The hostel is located a good 10-12 minutes away from the Lima airport. Now, if you are looking for luxury, go somewhere else. While the hostel itself is very safe, it is located in a very scary area. I, However,... More

I spent about 3 weeks in Peru with a friend, and we stayed here on a night that we had a late flight into Lima from Juliaca and an early enough flight out to Iquitos that we wouldn't have time to do anything, so we just wanted to stay near the airport without breaking the bank. We got in around... More

I arrived in Lima very late, and my original hostel booking fell through. This was the only hotel near the airport to pick up the phone. The property is average, with a basic, relatively clean room and bathroom. Free breakfast is coffee, tea, eggs, and bread. The manager was very helpful, in that he flagged down my taxi as we...

I have good and bad comments - please read to the end before deciding.....but the final outcome is positive Prior to booking this place I did read a few negative reviews regarding payments. One review stated that they tried to slug them for ''taxes'' that didn't exist, and in all honesty, it made me wary of staying here. Regardless I... More

I stayed at Hostal Victor two weeks ago and the service was great, when i arrived they gave me a bottle of water, the staff was very helpful, clean rooms, good breakfast. The hostel is about a 10 minute ride from the airport, i arranged transport to and from the airport via email. There were two couples playing ping-pong on... More

I booked this hostel six months in advance, and confirmed a few weeks before travel. I was arriving into Lima alone with my young daughter, and wanted to know that I would be met at the airport by a reliable hotel. The day before I travelled they sent an email to inform me that another group had booked, and they... More

My family and i stayed last month and the hotel was very comfortable, the rooms were clean, hot water even at 5am, good wi-fi reception, cable tv with international channels for the kids. The staff were super friendly and helpful; we left before breakfast hours but they had something prepared for us not to leave with an empty belly, and... More

We stayed two times in a month at Hostal Victor. The first time they charged 21% taxes and when I made a remark if the information about the taxes is on their website I didn´t get an answer. The second time there was no tax charge. Strange! The airport transfer was confirmed three times, by email and Facebook, but nobody... More

My group of seven stayed here for one night. I picked it since it was close to the airport. The driver picked us up on time and dropped us off at the airport on time. For seven of us a van would be required so it was $24 each way. The only problem was that the hostal tried to charge... More

The staff were very helpful in this hostel, but I found that it's in an obscure side alley that most taxi drivers don't know about, and there are absolutely no restaurants close by. The price of US $40 (roughly) per night (bring cash, and make sure the bills are new and completely unblemished) is great, and the pickup service to... More
