We stayed here for two nights, and although our mattress was rock hard and the pillows lumpy. it made up for this in its room size and hot shower. Breakfast was nice and consisted of cereals, warm bread rolls, eggs, and jams with plenty of orange juice, Tea and Coffee The Hostel is well located to the Colonial heart of... More

I stayed at Bonbini twice, before my trip to the south of Lima, and on way back. Should agree with all positive reviews. It is authentic, although people looking for more Western comfort, should head to Miraflores. For the downtown, it is a very sound solution. I should mention, it has computers with free internet, good airport pick-up service (cheaper... More

I negotiated a reduced rate for a 3 day stay (75 soles per night). Given that, it was fine. Nice common areas and the wifi works well there, but not in the room. Breakfast started out great with strong coffee, queso, jamon, etc. But each day they put out progressively less as more guests arrived. Room sheets are clean, bathroom... More

We stayed here in July 2013 because it was the departure point for a Dragoman overland trip. The room was relatively large, the bed was comfortable and everything seemed clean. The bathroom was basic but functional and again clean. The room had cable TV and there was supposedly WiFi through the place but it wasn't very good (welcome to South... More

Nice hostel with spacious ensuite rooms. Breakfast is just bread and coffee but there are lots of cheap places nearby. Location is good for Plaza Armas, Franciscan Monastery (Catacombs) and Chinatown. There is free WiFi throughout and cable TV.

Good location - only 2 blocks from Plaza Mayor 5. Helpful staff - although keep in mind, they speak limited english Cons: 1.... More

This is a great Hostal to stay at in Lima, it is basic but has all you need. It is located in a very handy position, walkable distances to some interesting sights, restuarants and shops. The rooms are clean and comfortable and there was all the hot water that I needed. Basic breakfast was included and they also do a... More

This place is convieniently located close to the main square in Lima and with plenty of banks, restaurants and shops close by. The actual hotel is neat & tidy and the rooms are clean. The room we had the bed was hard as a rock & not very comfortable. The hot water ran out very quickly.

This is an excellent hostal, but when you arrive in Lima you will see that they are many other hostals with very lower prices offering equivallent services. Here everybody knows this... suggestion: stay here the first night, then know the other options after confirm the other nights.
