We were actually roaming around Lima trying to find hostels with no luck. Until a random door was open to a bright blue home. In reality it was a hostel. The owners were very welcoming and let me and my friend just walk right in. This personally was my favorite hostel throughout Peru/Ecuador. The bed situation was perfect for us... More

This is the most disgusting hostel I have seen in south america. They didnt change the bed sheets and they had stains on them. The toilet didnt flush and no water in the bathroom. Bed sucked. It smells mouldy and common areas where disgusting aswell.

From the moment I walked into the Blue house it felt like home. Quique was warm, welcoming, and very knowledgeable about where to go and how to get there. I really enjoyed the communal atmosphere, the guests were also very friendly and we often had breakfast and dinner together. The facilities are nice too, kitchen with all the amenities, plenty...
