“Nice, chilled out hostel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

Not a party place. This is a nice relaxed hostel in a really good location of Miraflores, with all local amenities close by. Comfy beds with huge individual lockers underneath. Clean hostel. Friendly and helpful staff who speak excellent English. Rooftop bar and tv room to relax, and because it's quite small, it's easy to meet lots of people and make friends.

Great friendly staff, bar on the roof and all round good vibes what more do you need! It's also in a great location close to bars, restuarants, a park with loads of cats, markets and much more. Anything you need to know ask Jeffrey, he knows everything about everything!

This was generally a nice hostel with big rooms, lockers under the beds and clean bathrooms.

The roof terrace was a definite plus with chill out area and bar serving drinks until late.

However the big negative is that the hostel is located on top of a club. On Saturday night the music from the club pumped into the room all night until 7 am the next morning. It was unbelievable.

I would avoid staying here on a Saturday night if you want to get any sleep. Sunday night was quiet and I don't know about the other nights of the week.

Loved staying at Puriwasi, the beds are big and comfortable, the location ideal! Clean rooms, and an awesome rooftop bar with a great happy hour... it was everything we needed in Lima. Good breakfast as well, making this hostel a really nice value!

Whilst Puriwasi may not be the most sociable hostel in Miraflores, it is certainly a great choice.
Staff are great, always approachable and able to offer good ideas for guests. Lucy offered me a family recipe to try when back home...
The location is ideal. Just off the busy main intersection (a 3min walk) and in a safe area allowing for pretty decent sleep without compromising on explorability.
Roof top bar is nice. Sometimes feels that bar staff aren't the friendliest / most courteous (they prefer female guests !!)
Puriwasi is also relatively clean with the resident cleaner always pottering about. Be sure to drop her a 'hola, q tal?'
