our double room was basic to say the least. it appeared to be a converted garage with a double door out onto the street forming exterior wall.

the tv plug socket was literally hanging off the wall, and bedside lamp broken. there was a huge chunk missing from bathroom sink & the toilet seat didn't fit the toilet.

the bedroom door had a huge gap at the top and was right infront of the computers which other guests used throughout the night. bring earplugs.

plus points - the staff are friendly & helpful and the hostel is a short walk from miraflores shops/restaurants.

By far the best hostel I have stayed in South America so far. The rooms are very spacious with nice high ceilings. Plenty of showers and toilets. Hot water. Fast internet. Nice, clean kitchen. Close to big shopping mall with food court and to the the main park of Miraflores, supermarket and cinema. Will definitely stay here again when we come back through Lima.

Room Tip: Room number 1!

We stayed nearly 2 weeks in this great hostel. The rooms are clean and very comfy, the food is great, especially the French fries and Shakshuka - try it - and it's located right next to everything you need! The prices are cheap, too and you get free entrance to several clubs.

But the best in this Hostel  is the Service and the  very helpful stuff. Thanks again, Ziv, for everything you have done for us - helping us receive our parcel from Germany. It was a nightmare - an advice from us: never send a parcel with DHL!!!

I've been in Lima for two weeks and switched few hostels, nothing compare to this one.
Very clean rooms and help full stuff! Helped me with my lost passport.
Don't go other hostels, this one is cheap and you won't find a better one at this prices!

I stayed in this great friendly place for two nights during a short stop in Peru on my way from Argentina to the States. I looked for a place that is not too expensive and right in the city center, in a safe area of Lima, and HosteLima was just perfect.
Warm environment, lovely staff, great chef that I had a long talk with him and beside his good dishes, he is a funny and extremely friendly person. Just look for Bensal over there and trust me, you will not regret it. Ziv was great as well. A small problem with the bill were quickly becoming no problem at all. With a smile he took responsibility, a quality that sometime it seems hard to find in this business, especially in big chains.
Comfy bad, friendly environment, peace of mind and above all warm people that encircle you, all that in a very wallet friendly prices, makes my stop in Lima for an unforgettable experience.
I would like to recommend HosteLima for any one that comes to Lima and want to feel like a proper hotel guest.
