I stayed at this hostel on Christmas. I was kind of worried I would be very sad and lonely to be away from my family and friends for the holiday. But I felt so welcome at Dragonfly. I feel like it was home. The guy that work in the night (Alonso) cooked for everyone and we all ate together a...

It was a nice cozy hostel with a good atmosphere and friendly staff! Breakfast was good, there is free tea and the hostel is located central, so everything in Cusco is in walking distance. Fortunately not a party place, but nevertheless easy to meet people there.

With a nice rooftop bar and amazing location this makes good option if you are staying couple nights in Lima. Staff is very friendly and always ready to help. They also offer travel agency which is nice. Some nights it gets a bit noisy though..

We stayed at Dragonfly Hostel for 2 nights in a private room (shared bathroom). Our room was off the rooftop bar/lounge area. While the bar was fun it did stay loud till about midnight each night. The shared bathroom required you to walk through the rooftop bar to get to the single bathroom upstairs. The bathroom/shower was very small. The...

We spent one night in a shared dorm but hardly got any sleep because the tv room was next to our dorm and it was the night that Trump won the elections so the tv was on the entire night. Nevertheless the beds were comfy. The second night we stayed in a private room which are on the top floor...

Location is great, you're close to alot of attractions. Rooms are comfortable with large lockers and a few sockets lying around. The bathrooms sucked. Really small, with no space to put any of your stuff. But the water was always hot which is nice. The internet worked really well in the common areas but sometimes lagged in the rooms. Great...

I just popped in for a single night's stay and found everything to be satisfactory to my liking. The cute girl at the front desk was cheerful and helpful with a detailed check in. Previous reviews complained of overcrowded dorms but found them to be normal. Upstairs patio is a nice place to hangout but inside it lacked a living...
