Hostel Kokopelli
Ranked #13 of 372 Specialty Lodging in Lima
Reviewed February 4, 2010

This place is very very good. I stayed there in december, for new years and they made a wonderful party for the guests, with surprises and too much fun. The staff is very nice and helpful. The rooms are organized, good matresses, big lockers. For those who like to meet people, the hostel has a roof top bar with a beautiful decoration. A great place to drink a beer and look to the lima stars

It was really interesting for me to stay at Kokopelli. As you travel around and try new hostels, there are always little things that you pick up and think, what a great idea. But there are very few hostels that have got it together and do it all well. Kokopelli is one.

Great bar, internet, rooms, plenty of bathrooms, great staff, open 24 hrs, brilliant location, lockers (with a power point inside!!!), breakfast at a cool cafe until 1:30pm.

And it is easy to work out why it is so good. Because the owners are backpackers themselves, and they are right there behind the bar, serving the customers. They put the hours in, they are there to sort out any issues directly, and all the other staff are great because the bosses set a good example. The owners if this hostel have put in the hard yards... and they are seeing the results with 100% occupancy and great reviews. Congratulations guys. It was a pleasure.

We loved Kokopelli, and to be honest, it's probably a big part of the reason we ended up liking Lima.

Located in Miraflores, it's an easy walk into the main district center, or even down to the beachfront, where there's various restaurants situated on the edge of the cliff. The hostal itself, having been open a matter of months, is clean, modern and well-laid out. The private rooms don't have bathrooms physically in them, but more locked bathrooms just outside. A bit odd at first but completely fine, and very clean! Upstairs, on the roof, is a great little bar with sofas dotted about, so you can relax with a chilled beer whilst watching the sunset and playing foosball. There's also a little kitchen to conjure up some culinary creations.

The thing that set this place apart (as seems to be the case with any good hostal) was the staff. They were absolutely superb. The hostal has a great travel booking service, and the young Peruvian fella whom helped us spoke excellent english and did everything he could to get us the best deal.

My only gripe was the room we were in, which was next to the bars on the street outside, was very loud at night. I think it was only that room that had a problem though, as our other friends had no problems!
