We stayed here for a couple of nights before heading down to cusco. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was really nice. The area is lovely too. We also dropped back here after cusco before going on to huaraz for a couple of nights and were able to drop our large backpacks here for a couple of nights so... More

We had a private room next to the washroom, our room was so damp that the sheets were literally wet feeling. The washroom ran out of toilet paper many times, luckily I carried my own. This hostel was difficult to find and the signage was so small we could barely see it. The staff was unfriendly and most importantly not... More

This was the first stop on our 3 month trip so I've been waiting to write a review because I wasn't sure if the standard here is just lower. I can now safely say this is one of the worst places I've ever stayed. Where do I begin? Staff- don't seem to know much about the area. I asked a... More

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.
