My wife and I stayed at the hostel with our son and nephew for two nights as we wished to be quite central to Lima but in a quiet neighbourhood. The we took the room with the double bed to the front of the hostel. The double bed had a good mattress but was very small for me as I am I 6' 3" in size. The room was quite clean, but the wardrobe was a bit dusty. The room was as quiet as it could be since it faced onto a road. Although the bathroom was private it meant walking a few steps from the room as it was not en-suite.
The boys took a four-roomed dormitory for their exclusive use. This room was practical for their needs.
The hostel was very relaxed, had a good breakfast and handy kitchen. The highlight was the garden with hammocks and table tennis. The hostel needs a bit of attention though; for instance the bar football was partially broken (some of the players didn't spin), the climbing wall didn't function, we had great trouble plugging in the TV in the common room (the plug just kept on popping out), the remote control batteries for the TV were dead and the freezer was dirty.
All in all I would recommend the hostel as a no frills budget option. The neighbourhood is great and the hostel is relaxed.
