I wouldn't recommend this hostel. There are plenty of other hostels in Miraflores for a similar price. The staff were extremely unhelpful and the bathrooms smelt bad and the place was cold. Breakfast was stale bread roles with jam each morning and cold coffee.

We stayed for three nights, and had an amazing time! It's cheap and cheerful but great for the price. The owner and staff were fantastic, with help booking transport, food recommendations, good maps, and fun celebrations on Independence Day! Social areas are nice and lack of Wifi in the rooms means you get to meet people! Couldn't recommend more!

Very cheap but as a result very basic. If you're short on cash this is a decent place to stay. If however you want more comfort then steer clear. The workers are very friendly and they do have a paid airport transfer service, $35 USD from her hostel back to airport. One bathroom had no light and the showers had... More

The hostel is pink inside and out! We stayed here on our first night in Peru and they offered us lots of information on the city which was really useful. Beds were pretty standard and just what we expected. There were some cool areas to chill too!

Our 2 night stay was average. Some of the positives: The staff was very helpful and provided us with a map of the best sites to see during our short stay. We took his recommendation and ended up having a great time. Breakfast was great also. The area seemed very safe and was in a quiet/quaint neighborhood. The biggest negative... More

Centered in Miraflores, this is a great place to base you stay in Lima from. The staff are super friendly and gave us a great map with locations to visit. There is free wifi, kitchen and plenty of space to hang out in.

This hostel is basic but in a safe location in Miraflores, albeit difficult to find. The staff are friendly and helpful in all areas. The rooms are basic and hot in the warmer weather. It is close to the ocean and a 15 minute walk to the city centre.

PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING! We stayed here for the first three nights on arrival to South America having read excellent reviews by Lonely Planet and on HostelWorld... boy were we disappointed! It was like we were at a completely different hostel to the one we had read about. The airport pick up was a total rip-off! You will pay less... More

We arrived in the middle of the night and for this reason we had chosen the shuttle offered from the hostel and this worked out perfectly. The hostel itself is nice, comfy and clean. The staff is very helpful with getting around, organising taxis, ... The spanish lesson with Pedro (the owner) was super fun and helped a lot for... More
