We didn't stay overnight, but instead checked in late in the morning after our flight to Lima from Cusco. Our flight out of Lima was until 2:30 am the following morning. We used this hostal as a place to store our luggage, and to shower and nap before heading back to the airport later that night. We chose this hostal... More

We did not love this hostel. The location was very central but that made it loud. The staff was not very helpful or accommodating. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Good location if you want to stay right in town.

We arrived late (12pm) after a delayed flight and left at 6:45am the next morning so this review is based on a very short stay! We booked the taxi pick up through flying dog and even though our flight was delayed for 3 hours there was someone in arrivals waiting for me which was very welcome! He did drop as... More

An average hostel in a great location across the street from Kennedy Park in Miraflores District of Lima. The hostel is about average, staff wasn't that interested in hearing any complaints about something in the hostel. A lot of things advertised in their website weren't available during my stay. The poolroom & bar were closed down,there were beverages for sale... More

Friendly and helpful staff, rooms were large and clean and the hostel had a reasonable breakfast but do not stay here if you require internet access. I also had the same experience at the Flying Dog Hostel in Iquitos.

Good location and nice hostel in general, but really poor internet connection. Breakfast included, moreover They are taking special care of guest's health by serving for the breakfast fruit salad containing 8 pieces of fruits and half glass of juice (+ coffee)...

I experienced no issues with this hostel. I had a great private room to myself and it was perfect for my stay. The people were really nice and helped me call taxis and such. The wifi was really bad in the room though. The shower was clean. It was a typical Peruvian hostel!

I always stay here when passing through Lima. The staff are great, the rooms are fine, and the location is perfect. Lima always feels a bit unsafe, yet I feel totally comfortable at flying dog... There is a great Chinese restaurant across the park as well.

This hostel benefits from its location right at Parque Kennedy in Miraflores, Lima. I stayed in a dormitory (S./ 35 as of Nov 2015) which has personal lockers - have your own lock! The hostel is safe as the staff lets everybody in and out through the locked doors. Internet worked fine in the nice common room upstairs overlooking the... More
