Fabulous location! This hostel is three blocks from Larcomar and the ocean. Down the street around 6 - 8 blocks is Vivanda, a Whole Foods-esque designed supermarket and very convenient if you wish to cook your own food.
Jessica and her cousin, Cecilia, run the place. Both are pleasant, whip smart, and movers & shakers in Lima. They know how to run a hostel and experience life at the same time. Their knowledge and advice really helped me during my stay.
The hostel rooms themselves are split into two parts. The main rooms located within the house are on the second floor. There's a private room with its own bath at the top of the stairs; a bunk room with 6 bunks and its own bathroom in the middle; and another room with mixed bunks/double beds (great for families) at the end of the hall, also with its own bathroom.
If when you arrive and they bring you through the kitchen & up the red stairs towards your room, you can begin to worry, if you choose. The one bathroom shared by all is on ground level and it's so small that the sink is in your lap as you sit on the toilet. That's correct, in the middle of the night when you have to empty your bladder, you'll need to walk down steep stairs to a bathroom that can barely contain you.
Even through all of this, it's still a delightful experience. The water is super hot and the house is comfortable. Miraflores is the place to stay in Lima and the location of Atelier can't be beat. I would stay here again!
