“Good location, quiet place to land”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014

We started our trip in Peru here, staying 4 days.

The price is average for the service and quality. Rooms are basic. There is reliable hot water which is fantastic. There is breakfast offered but it's very basic, just white bread and jam and tea. There is a very good WiFi connection which is hard to find (it was faster than Starbucks). Some of the staff were very helpful. It's located in a nice area (Miraflores), and there are great restaurants nearby (La Mar, Nathano's, and Cocina Vegetariana). It's also close to a nice yoga studio, Casa de Ninfa. Great overall stay. We enjoyed sleeping at night and not being woken up by partying backpackers (this may vary depending on the population present though). There was confusion about our initial reservation, made through the internet, and we did not initially get the room we reserved. We were moved the following day.

Room Tip: Some rooms are up a treacherous winding staircase on the upper floor.

Great price and location. I was there for about a week, which for the staff was a rarity because most people use Lima as as 1 or 2 night stop before heading somewhere else. It is near to everything that you would need during your stay. The staff were super friendly and made my stay highly enjoyable. The always looked out for me when I needed assistance with anything. It was almost like a little family. The dorm room that I had which was upstairs on the right side was very quiet and my dorm mates were not obnoxious or anything like that, that you sometimes find at other hostels, and I guess that is the sort of environment that the staff helped to create, to treat each other like a brother or sister. Family dinners for a few extra soles was worth it! Makes you feel alive again to sit down with travellers and staff alike and just share good food and drinks and conversation. Overall it is a great place to visit! Miss the place greatly and hoping to return asap!

Good price. Easy to find. Close to walk to things on nearby popular streets but eateries are pricey around there.
Clean beds, clean enough shower. WiFi in lounge, lobby area. Secured area. Staff is nice, knows some English.
Have family dinner each night for extra charge. Ping pong table, back fun courtyard. Bread, coffee and tea for breakfast.
Great place to meet travelers!!!

Turned up at this place with high hopes which were soon gone. walked in and was asked if i wanted to pay now or when i checked out, i already had paid for a double room which i think she knew but might of been trying to get some extra cash. then we were taken upto our "room" which was actually a dorm and i again told her i had booked a double room. after 10 mins of hanging around i was told our room was ready so we walked down there and it was a set of bunk beds next to the communal area which was dirty with beer bottles everywhere and cigarette ends all over the place. the room stunk!! at this point i asked to speak to the manager and she asked me to wait a couple of minutes, next thing you know she magically comes back having found my correct double room which i accepted because it had been such a long journey. the room was horrible and didn't look like it had been cleaned in months. basically these lot are a bunch of chancers and i wouldn't stay here again if my life depended on it. luckily only had to stay the 1 night on march 27th.

Though not a party hostel, this place has a vibrant atmosphere. In a safe area of Miraflores and about a 15/20 minute walk to the main park and restaurants. The hostel hosts dinners if you want it and has nice areas to hangout inside and outside. The staff are really friendly (we borrowed a hairdryer from one of the girls). Our room Ya'Pe (private twin) should be avoided though, it's on the top floor which can only be accessed by a really steep thin spiral staircase. It was also more of a wooden shack than actually part of the building (not great if you are a light sleeper). Bathroom could also do with more frequent cleaning; kitchen was not kept tidy by other guests.

I do not understand how this place got such good reviews. My husband and I stayed here for just one night (thank god) with 2 of our friends. We shared a 6 bedroom dorm, and the sheets and pillows on every single one of the beds were covered in hair. It was disgusting! I slept in my sleep sheet, and my husband and friends used their own towels as blankets because the hostel's sheets and blankets taken from airlines were so gross. The lady who works at the front desk apparently lives in a room upstairs that was next to our dorm room. She smoked in her bedroom throughout the night, and the smoke filled the hallway. Nasty. We were so thankful that we were only staying there one night. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
