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

I made the reservation through Booking.com and the ratings were not that bad, but just before I went I found the reviews here on TA - and much as I hate to say it, they are spot on! I searched hard to find something positive to say, but there just isn't anything to redeem what is a pretty dismal hostel.The... More

Can only agree with the negative reviews already here. The place was filthy, beds broken, mouldy walls and our room wasn't clean nor the beds made when we got there. The common spaces are are also filthy and it is difficult to find a place you would want to sit. The breakfast is nothing to write about, it is a... More

We arrived in Lima late, but even under the cover of darkness this place couldn't had its filth. We walked past the small and dirty kitchen to our "room". No windows, two beds with stained sheets, moldy walls, and overwhelming smell of old sweat. We didn't even spend twenty minutes in the room before we were trying to find a... More

I stayed in Blue House for 3 nights. The owner Quique is a really nice guy but he needs to do alot of work on this Hostel. It was $10US a night per person. Our double room was big but smelt strongly of mould, the ensuite was off limits as nothing worked. the other showers had little to no hot... More

When we arrived at the blue house hostel we thought this place was a little bit dodgy... Everything a little bit mismatching, the owner a little bit manic, but this is just Quique and one of the reasons we grew to love him. We were planning to stay 2 days and ended up staying over a month in a double... More
