We booked this place weeks in advance by contacting them directly. When we arrived they told us that they d messed up our booking and didn't have a private room for us. Our only option was a more expensive private room at another hostel in a worse location or two beds in a cramped and musty dorm. Oh and there was no hot water in the adjacent shower. Terrible!

I visited Lima in December of 2010 and Red Psycho Llama was the first place I called to make reservations. The staff was super quick with email replies and confirmation of our stay, and even after numerous flight delays kept us from arriving for a day and a half after we had originally scheduled, they were very accommodating and helpful! They were also super cool about giving us tips and advice as to what to check out in Lima and Peru as a whole.

Thanks to Luis the driver for getting us through the crazy streets on our way to and from the airport!

As for quality/value and stuff: The rooms were clean and comfortable and fairly priced. The rooftop bar and lounge area was a great place to chill out after a fun day in the city. Great location near a lot of action in Miraflores. Walking distance to the surf beaches, great restaurants and clubs.

Thanks again to Johann and the staff! Hope to visit again soon!

Hello amigos,
for a pleasant stay in the Miraflors neighbourhood this is a recommendable place. Environmentally conscious owners, and excellent service in gereral.
The Miraflores neighbourhood is not the cheapest place to stay in Lima, but far out most interesting.

Greets,
Helen

My first exposure to the hostel was great--they arranged a taxi driver to pick me up for 40 soles from the airport. he spoke english and even insisted that i get a sandwich on the way there since it was late.

breakfast is included and is a light meal prepared by a cook. 2 computers with free internet and skype and a full kitchen with micro and fridge. they supposedly have a bar but i haven´t really seen anyone hanging out there. My room, a 4 bed with private bathroom was luckily not taken by anyone else so i got it to myself. towels are for rent and there is a place where you can lock valuables in your room. also a big screen tv and selection of movies. make sure you ask about how to use the hot water since gas heat is always rather difficult to work with. i would recommend this hostel to someone looking to stay in miraflores.

Very nice hostel located on a fairly quiet side street near Kennedy Park in Miraflores. The Llama has a cool vibe with a great lounge area, free internet access, interesting decor, and an emphasis on recycling and conservation. The staff was extremely helpful in giving advice and helping us to book buses and flights. The accomodations are pretty standard but very clean. Would not recomend to those who need absolute silence to sleep, there is music playing until fairly late and some street noise.
