I have visited Lima many times and always go back to HQ Villa. The location is perfect, just a ten minute walk from the main tourist area (you don't want to stay downtown Lima, very ugly and unsafe), quite street so no noise from traffic. The common areas are very big and cosy, great tv room, huge double kitchen, beatiful...

I stayed here twice on the way through Peru. Both times I stayed in the 6 bed female dorm. The room was a little tired but it was clean. The beds were also a bit too thin, I would wake up really sunken into the mattress! So they ideally need updating. The communal space is great, large kitchen, lovely patio...

The Villa is a really nice place to stay in. The rooms are clean, comfortable and nice to be in. You can use the kitchen, breakfast is included in your stay and they have free Wifi. They also have a big television with dvd player wich is a nice surplus. But the best thing about the Villa is the atmosphere....

My friends and I stayed here twice as it was soo awesome! Mike, Misha and Jamie are brilliant. They will help you anything from where to visit, eat and go out in Lima. The hostel is in a great neighbourhood, Miraflores and there is a tasty breakfast every morning and wifi. Miraflores is a very nice part of Lima and...

Overall it is a good hostel and it has a potential to be excellent. Though for now the value for money should be improved. - The staff is very nice, but you have to wait each time you need them (even though some of them are available) - The dorms are nice, but the private rooms are not good. At...

Stayed one night at HQ Villa on arrival to Peru and going back for my last night in Lima. Really friendly staff, nice breakfast, clean rooms, lovely courtyard. Slightly far out but that meant it was nice and quiet! Free wi-fi and 2 computers to use. Lovely big kitchen so you can cater for yourself!

I made reservations from the USA based on all the positives reviews online. Though the mansion villa and lobby, common areas looked nice, I cant say the same about our "matrimonial private room", I understand this is a hostal and acommodates mostly students on a budget who dont mind sharing bunk beds and bathrooms, in fact we saw loots of...

We arrived at HQ hostel and were taken back by how elegant the hostel was. There was always someone at the front desk to ask any questions we may have and they were all very friendly and helpful. We had a private room with 2 twin beds located on the 1st floor. My only complaint is that it is a...
