We arrived Monday night at 11:30pm. It was smelling like fresh paint in the lobby, which made us starting to feel suspicious. We inspected our beds and found a lotttt of bed bugs on them. We left right away to find a new hostel. We asked the receptionist to call a taxi and he didn't want to. Hopefully we got... More

This hostel was great for the price. Rooms and amenities was fine, craft beer was good but we just wanted something cheap. Nice rooftop, hammocks, and bar. We arrived and everyone seemed college-age, and playing drinking games. Would go back but would also try something new.

A nice little hostel in the heart of Miraflores, with lovely staff. They are really helpful and give you advice if you ask for it. Felt very safe during my stay. For breakfast you get some pancakes with dulce de leche, a nice treat to start the day.

Decent hostel to stay in Lima. The rooms and toilets are basic, not great but also nothing to complain about. There is a nice rooftop bar with good variety of own brewed craft beers. The location in Miraflores is good and the staff is friendly.

Loving our stay here in Lima. Harmony and Jonny are awesome people and they have been so helpful. We were suppose to stay at a different hostel three days into our trip but we decided to cancel that hostel and to continue to stay here instead. I would definitely recommend this hostel!
