The location of the hotel was perfect. The rooms were also nice. The problem was the staff. They were not very friendly and not accommodating at all. They were very grumpy when we asked questions and not friendly.

Not bad for its low price. Excellent location. Nice staff. Towels and bed linen need improvement. No windows in our room :( I only recommend if travelling with very low budget, no soap nor shampoo either. Stay with your sleeping bag for a better experience.

We could park our car safely inside compound. All clean. Nice stuff. Walking distance from coast and meeting point for free walking tours. Excellent value for money. You can also sleep in your car. Full equipped kitchen available. Private rooms need to be reserved

I took about a dozen high school kids there for several days and we had a great time. It is only a few minutes from the beachfront promenade and is in a very safe upscale neighborhood. A short walk from good eats. Polite staff speaks some English. A security gate ensures the staff controls entry and exit access. Breakfast is... More

Stayed here because there is a sign at reception reminding guests that they should be quiet in the patio after 9PM so thought we would have a good rest here. The dorm was right above the patio and a loud group of tourists was partying there without the staff saying anything. Around midnight I went downstairs to ask how late... More

This is a great budget hostel in Miraflores, only a few blocks from the beach. Bunks are simple and clean, communal kitchen, simple breakfast included, and good social areas inside and out. Several bathroom/showers with hot water. Wifi is good, a decent place for a Digital Nomad, plus many coffee shops nearby with wifi. Also good for overlanders with parking... More

This place is ok with an outdoor patio area, lounge areas and a large kitchen. We stayed in a dorm which was basic, not enough lockers for the number of beds and sheets not 100% clean. It also seems there was only one shower room for the whole hostel!!

Great location! Rooms were fine and breakfast was too. Stayed here for 2 nights before a month long expedition in Peru and it was a great start to our trip. Would definitely return here. I also have to add the marmalade with our rolls at breakfast was outta this world!!

The Hotel is really well situated in a quite neighbourhood, the connections to the centre are so good, but the personnel is not so good, they were a little bit rude and not so helpful. Our room was dirty and very wet. The breakfast really poor. I'll definitely would not recommend it.
