The staff are one of the nicest I ever met (after 2 months of traveling) really helpful and give you whatever you need just to make you feel comfortable. The location is great (5 minutes from the beach and the boardwalk and 10 minutes from kennedy park). The price is cheap compare to the prices at other hostels around and... More

From the moment I walked into the Blue house it felt like home. Quique was warm, welcoming, and very knowledgeable about where to go and how to get there. I really enjoyed the communal atmosphere, the guests were also very friendly and we often had breakfast and dinner together. The facilities are nice too, kitchen with all the amenities, plenty...

I stayed at Blue House for 4 days in Lima and felt right at home. Quique was very genuine and willing to help me out with whatever I needed while in Lima. He and the staff were very friendly and had good advice for the city. The hostel looked after my surfboards while I traveled through the rest of Peru.... More

I stay with three nights in this hostel. Excellent location. The bed was comfortable. The staff members are very friendly and helpful. Peaceful atmosphere. The boss "Quique" was a very good guy so funny ;)

This hostel gives you everything you need for a great stay in Lima. A small breakfast is even included (you are told in advance what it consists in so if you ard not happy with it, get your own food). The living room is very welcoming and the wi-fi works very well. The dorm is simple but enough for what... More

A real backpackers hostel. Basic but very friendly and very helpful in the best neighborhood in Miraflores. Hot water, wifi and reasonably priced. We were even given free camping gas (It was just luck as other travelers had left some) but still, very nice of the owner. It's not the sheraton, but if you want good value and a very... More

Not very impressed with Lima, planned to stay only a couple of nights, instead i stayed here for 5 days. A lovely lovely place, with an amazing owner. Great location and very friendly environment. Felt just like home.

I've never written a review on T.A. before, but feel motivated to in order to save future travelers the money and discomfort of this hostel. The only reason we ended up staying rather than immediately fleeing was that we had arrived at 6am, did not know the city, and had sleeping bags and our own pillows we were able to... More

Blue House is as friendly a place as you will find. It is however a typical backpacker hostel, it isn't a hotel. If you want privacy and a little luxury this isn't the place for you. If you want a friendly environment with a chance to meet some new friends from all over the world located in a great part... More
