Lex Luthor's house moved from Miroflores to Barranco in early 2013. I was the second person who stayed at their new facility, just 3 blocks from Parque de Barranco. The hostel is located in a very upscale residential apartment complex, extremely quiet and safe. Excellent facility with kitchen, living area, shared dorm room, twin and triple rooms. The owners and... More

I've been staying at Luis's place ever since the first time I visited Lima back in 2006. It's not flash but it's got everything you need, and Luis is an absolute legend, he's always been really helpful and full of advise and friendly banter. The girls who clean the place are lovely, and I've always known the place to be... More

We stumbled upon this hostel after arriving in town late in the evening and finding two others booked solid. What good luck! Friendly staff, very quiet, nice continental breakfast and REAL hot coffee. "Lex" and his brother "Superman" were great hosts and full of advice on local things to do.

We decided to go to this hostel because of all the good reviews. First we were a bit disappointed because the house is really old and the rooms were a bit muggy and smelly. So this hostel is nothing flash concerning the rooms and interior BUT the people who run it are sooooo friendly and helpful. The owner organizes taxis... More

Luis, the owner, is a brilliant host - full of info and anecdotes to help newcomers to Lima to make the best of their stay. Even having been to Lima many times he often tells me about great new restaurants for a... More

So, this is not a party hostel. It's a home away from home. Very well located. The closest you can be to Miraflores without paying for it. And Luis is such a helpful guide. He even sat with us for tea to discuss what our mere 24 hours in Lima should be like. It's a neighborhood home, away from commercial/busy... More

I stayed two times in Lex Luthor's, my first nigths ever in south America and a month later. I loved it both times! Luis, the lovely owner that makes you feel at home immediately, prepared us some really nice Pisco sour and arranged a descent discount at his brothers hostel in Arequipa, Yunta Wasi, also very nice.

This hostel is in a great spot in Miraflores. It is small, the staff is very friendly, and we got great sleep here. The bathroom wasn't as clean as we would have liked, but the bedroom was comfortable. We arranged an airport pickup through Lex Luthor and he was waiting for the airport for us like the promised, even an... More

Good breakfast, good tourism info, good beds. Not so good showers (electric) but had a public bath with good hot water from a thermo. Good location, near the sea, but a lot of stairs to reach it (Lima has gullies). Lex and mrs. Lex, excellent people!
