Cirquew hostel is great! There is loads of room, and the owner and people who work there are very friendly and helpful. When I stayed there it was not very busy, so I got a whole dorm room to myself! The local area, Miraflores, is also very relaxing, you can stroll down the the coast, and hang out in he park, or go surfing etc.

This place is an unknown gem, and it really needs more business! So check it out!

Great hostel in a central and safe location. Our room was a really good size and was super clean. What makes this place so brilliant though is the staff. The owner is fantastic - really helpful and really fun. She provided all the info we needed and invited us to join her and her family for new year. The staff also helped us book bus tickets without having to go to the bus terminal and even let us borrow 100 soles when we first arrived. Definitely recommended but if you book please show up - they have many problems with people not arriving and rooms remaining empty. Thanks for an ace few days!

I love finding little gems of hostels that are not over-hyped yet really are exceptional - this certainly is one of them. Cirque Hostel was our home for 3 nights, and it really became our home! The atmosphere is incredibly relaxed yet helpful, the staff are super friendly and fun (esp the owner), and the facilities are great.

The owner insisted on driving us around rather than let us take taxis, fixed my bag for free and even invited us to dinner with her family. Only had one problem with the hot water but that was fixed within hours.

Dont be put off by the location, the area is lovely and very safe. You will not regret booking here, it was our favorite in Peru (out of about 20!)

Room Tip: Master room is great

This hostel is really nice. It is located in a residential area and you are within walking distance to the best shopping malls, indian markets, theatres, bars, everything. I was really surprised at the price because it is cheap but it has a kitchen at your disposal (free) and this helps save a lot of money. The workers are helpful and kind, and I met people with whom I remain in touch as we spent lots of time together sightseeing and in the hostel´s common areas. Everything was so clean and well decorated and the beds were so comfortable you would think you were in an expensive hotel. This was great!!

I would recommend everybody to stay here in this hostel, it has everything you need. Rooms are clean, beds are really comfortable and it is on a safe area. People who work there are friendly and know about all the truistic attraction in Peru. Also, their concierge are excellent, they provide me with a whole other alternative adventure and they know about different areas to visit besides "Machu Picchu". It has a nice bar on the roof top with a BBQ area were cool people hang-out and have fun. This is a place that worths staying. I had the best experience staying in this hostel because they show me Peru in a more dynamic and different way and i think nobody know Peru better than them.

Cirque Hostel is very nice, comfortable and clean. I stayed for about a week and felt at home. Dorms are big, with super comfortable beds. They provide you with a locker and a key, which I found useful and safe. Lots of clean bathrooms with good hot showers. Kitchen clean and available 24hs. Nice staff.
I strongly recommend it!!!
