At first I needed a place just to sleep but it became more than just that. I slept better than at home and in the morning a breakfast was waiting. And in the evening I had nice talks with the landlady. I had a room with bathroom included. And don't think this is an hotel, it is a bed and...

Airport pick-up went smooth. Quiet neighbourhood, but within less than 5 min walking from restaurants, banks, etc. and about a 30-40 min walk from the Cruz del Sur bus station. Nice bedrooms and large cosy common area with well equiped kitchen. Host was extremely friendly and happy to recommend places to eat or give directions in Spanish or English. Only...

We stayed here on two separate occasions. One was while we waited for a 3am bus after arriving at the airport. The website offered airport pickup so we opted for that but felt we were overcharged. It was 60 soles from the airport to the hostel, whereas we later learned we could have gotten a regular cab for 30 soles....

By all accounts, the website makes this place sound like a hub of activity, close to attractions and with nice, if cheap, accommodation. It was none of these. It had a crappy vibe - it was the top floor of someone's house for starters and none of the other guests were friendly (not their fault, but the atmosphere wasn't congenial...

Booked to stay here on the internet and made a reservation. Also after reading the hostels info section it says just email them after you have booked and they will pick you up from the station at the time your bus arrives. So we made the reservation and sent the email. After a 17 hour bus journey from cajamarca we...

Liked: The atmosphere, the kitchen, the nice and caring host Ana, the cute little dog, the quiet environment. The important and accurate information about buses to centro & airport (as buses in Lima are quite chaotic for tourist). Simple but nice breakfast. Free coffee and tea all day. We loved the quiet environment and homely feel. It's not for people...

Stayed here for 3 nights and had a great time. The owner is a charming and helpful lady, not to mention wonderfully bubbly Paco! Beds are OK, dorm is spacious for 4 people and if it's full you can crash on the couch. Breakfast is included and has some of the best bread I've eaten in south america! We spiked...

I stayed 3 times over there and I loved it. This is not a party place but a place where people can interact in the lounge. I also feel in love with the owner Ana for her concern regarding any guest staying at her place. The location is good for relaxing and getting away from the tourist area. Good place...
