“Excelent location, budget hotel”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

The hotel is located in Larco street, in the heart of Miraflores district in Lima. Just a a couple steps away from Larcomar, wich is one of the most beautiful places to be in Lima. The hotel is small and the rooms need a little update. It has just the basic services. The internet "wi-fi" service that they offer doesn´t work at all, and don´t even think on using the hotel computer because it doesn´t get you anywhere. Overall, the rooms are ok, and if you consider the location and what you are paying for.......it is tottally worth it. I would come back.

Room Tip: As for the room that has a balcony....there is only one....

The Hostel is very good situated in Miraflores at Larco, one quater from Larcomar-Shopping-Center - thats the only positiv thing. Its very noisy and in july very, very cold in the rooms. Breakfast is very poor. Rooms are old and dirty. Mold in the showers. The owner changes reserved rooms as she likes. Just hope, that you have a new bed-tick, when you sleep on in this beds!!

Inka Hostel is a small, cute hostel in the heart of Lima's Miraflores suburb. Its a very short walk to Larcomar, the waterfront, and the beautiful parks overlooking the ocean. Also within a 15 minute or so walk is Parque Kennedy, numerous cafes and restaurants and the artisan markets.

The hostel staff was very friendly, the rooms are nice, nothing extraordinary but the price is very reasonable. The bathrooms were fine, but hot water was a consistent problem, especially in the morning when many people were probably trying to shower.

We were lucky to have room 401 at the top of the hostel with no other rooms (besides the breakfast room) on it, so the floor was very quiet at night.

The included breakfast is just coffee. juice, and a roll with butter and jam.

One MAJOR complaint that I have is that the hotel manager "forgot" about our reservation. At the beginning of our trip to Peru we stayed at the Inka Hostel for two nights without incident. At the end of our trip, we returned to Lima for another 2 nights, and upon arriving at the hostel were told there was no room for us. This is despite booking through Hostelbookers.com and paying a 10% down payment to confirm the reservation.

After waiting for about half an hour we were moved to another hostel around the corner and promised the same amenities and price (although the manager of the new hostel was not too happy about that). The other hostel, Olympus Inn, was nice as well, but the staff not nearly as friendly.

Good service, the room was ok but not great. Some rooms need a facelift, some are better. Would stay again because the location is really good although the rooms facing the street can bee a bit noisy.

My Stay in Inka hostal was just wonderfull. First, for the low cost, the condition of the room was really good. The breakfast was served in a very homelly way.
I can even say that I was not feelling good one day, and the owner of Inka Hostel went to pick me up and take me to the hospital and she gave me all necessary attention.
If you want a safe stay, for sure that is the best option.
To make it better, the Hostal is placed near the Larco Moll, and Kenedy park, you have very easy access to the big inka Market, and at the Inka Hostel they help you getting great prices tours to Cusco and whereever you wanna go in Peru.
I had a very good experience.

What a cute place, right on Larco in Miraflores, Lima. When I arrived, I got to choose my room. I had a private bathroom, with a large TV with cable. The women that worked there went out of their way to help me, especially when I got sick.

But you must know that is on a main street, so you will hear noises all night long. Old carpet, old mattress. Clean room, clean bathroom.
First night the receptionist didn't even say hello or thank you, next day the other receptionist was friendly.
