The proximity to the airport scores big for this hostel. Like most tourists if you are waiting for your flight to Cusco and its more than six hours away and you have gotten off a long international haul, this hostel is for you. Costs less than a four hour lounge price at Jorge Chavez airport for a private room and...

The hostel is in a strange and little rough area, but superfriendly staff and they are very helpful! Plus that they offered taxi service for us! Perfect for just a sleepover between flights! They also had decent food and beverages at the "lounge" area.

We stayed here for one night to make it easier for us to catch an early flight the next morning. The hostel was as expected, very simple but clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. The only problem we experienced was that it was quite noisy (thin walls). We had dinner in the restaurant as well and the cook did a...

This is a fairly well-run backpackers' dive, in a part of town that isn't nearly as dangerous as it looks. An after-hours stroll is NOT recommended, as this is in Callao, NOT Lima, so be forewarned. they'll arrange a taxi pickup at the airport right outside customs, and this is worth the price. They'll also arrange a return to the...

If you have a long layover in Lima this is your best bet! It is kind of in a sketchy area of town- but don't be fooled by the outside. Inside totally cool and the staff is friendly. It is very close the airport and it is your best bet for the price. It definitely beats sleeping on a bench...

The hostel itself is nice, rooms are ok, cool rooftop terrace. Very close to the airport but therefore obviously not located in actual Lima. The breakfast was one of the best we had in 1,5 months of traveling through Peru and Chile (fresh fruit, fresh juices, eggs, good bread, ...) and for a good price. Most people only stay for...

Very near the airport. But it's in a industrial area neighborhood. were 20 backpacker friends, we were able to enjoy only because we were together. The place needs lots of maintenance. Communication was a big problem, the staff knew very little English. Chilled beer was available. Kitchen is big.

Unfortunately i didn't have a good stay the dorm room was super hot and very noisy as the hostel is on the main road so i didn't get much sleep. The staff however were very friendly and helpful and the airport pickup was good as would be difficult to find on your own. However despite these positives i have to...
