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!

This hostel was just awesome. I had originally planned to move to another hostel after a few days, but ended up staying here for almost a week. The location is great, the staff all very friendly, and overall just a nice stay. Excellent price for what you are getting. Everything was very clean! Simple but satisfactory. I would love to...

Really great hostel, good beers, comfortable beds,friendly and helpful staff, basic breakfast. Only problem was that our private double room was next to the noisy bar area, not good after a 12 hour flight! Booked our bus to Paracas at the hotel for a good price. Only stayed 2 nights as that's all we needed in lima.

The staff here are really friendly, it's cheap and the rooftop bar is a great place to hang out. the kitchen facilities are good and clean and breakfast is substantial enough. Only downfall is the rooms are a bit crowded and can get very hot. The location is good as it's in a lovely area and is an easy walk... More

Loved the shelves on the bunks - just need reading lights. WiFi only works in common areas, breakfast is simple and included. Hostel situated in miraflores little bit of a walk from the express...

This is the cheapest hostel I could find in Lima which is the main reason why i booked a night here. This is probably the reason why a lot of people stay in this place as well. in fact a lot of backpackers kept coming in and inquiring if there were extra beds during my stay there. the place is...

Pros: Clean, comfy beds. Hot showers and plenty of toilets make Dragonfly perfect for backpackers. The breakfast is basic but filling which is as much as you can ask for. Upstairs there is a bar which serves their own food and drink. Staff are friendly and speak good English. The area that the hostel is situated is safe and well... More

I like the vibe of the hostel small and efficient. There is a roof top deck that offers drinks and fuzz ball. Beds are ok nothing great but for the price you are paying its not bad. The only thing that bothered me is that my room was beside a busy road. It was freaking noisy 😖I had a hard... More
