I enjoyed my few nights at Red Psycho - they've thought carefully about the lovely decor and being as environmentally conscious as possible. There's a kitchen you can use and a nice roof terrace. The rooms are comfortable though cramped, the staff are friendly enough but didn't seem interested in making friends with guests. It's certainly not a party hostel,... More

People working at the Hostal are very very nice! Room was clean, but not really comfortable. Bathroom very clean, but shower was hot for 10 minutes, after that water started to get cold and didn't get warm again before 40 minutes or 1 hour. Breakfast ok, not really good. Location ok. Not really touristic, but had good caffes around and... More

Stayed here for three nights upon getting into Peru and had a good time here at Red Psycho! The theme is quirky and great and the hostel was generally quiet, perfect for a girl recovering from jetlag. The staff are helpful and ordering bus tickets from them was very fuss free. There's a kitchen, and breakfast is provided.

I stayed in this hostel for 3 days at the end of my trip in SA. Was looking for a quiet place on a good location and really found some rest at this place. It is not a party hostel but they have a nice rooftop to relax. Beds are really comfy and free breakfast is nice. Bathrooms could be... More

The hostel is located in the center of miraflores and it was very quiet. The dorms were great, the beds very comfortable and the bathrooms always clean. Breakfast is included and very tasty. There is a rooftop where you can chill. We enjoyed our stay and recommend it to everyone.

We enjoyed our stay very much! The hostel is just north of Parque Kennedy in Miraflores which is a hub of different events, tours, restaurants, and bars and it's a big landmark for easy taxi rides. Breakfast was nice, lots of coffee, fresh juice and fruits and a bread roll with different omelets or vegetables. Beds were comfortable and lots... More

Very convenient for Miraflores (although this did make it a bit noisy at night). Room was comfortable and en suite bathroom was one of the best we had in south america. Wifi worked well, no air conditioning but a big fan worked well. The breakfast was very small (roll with omlette or jam, some fruit, tea). The staff were the... More

The Red Psycho Llama is certainly like no other hostel. Beautifully recycled and handcrafted artworks line not only the common areas but dorms as well. Lots of common areas/ meeting places including an outdoor dining area, rooftop chill-out zone, indoor dining area, lounge, and reception. Staff are extremely helpful and their English is very good; reception is staffed 24/7 -... More
