One of the better hostels I have ever visited. Finally ceramic floor in a hostel in Peru. Very simple and comfortable decoration. The people running this place are really nice!
I loved the fact that they have cameras all over the place so no one even think about steeling ( a thing that happens a lot in s. America)
Personally it makes me fill secure.
In general Lima is a great city - very advanced- and if you visit this city you better go to this hostel.

i have stayed in Hostelima total of 6 nights in two different periods
the staff was nice, the food was great and the amenities were satisfactory to all my needs.

the centered location in a safe neighborhood made my life easier when i came back late from parties or the casino.

i would defiantly recommend this hostel to any "Muchilero" that's come to Lima for a few days.

thank you Hostelima

We arrived in the hostel straight from the airport, out first time in South America. We were recieved with a smile and a lot of useful advice, which helped us get acclimated to the foreign environment. We highly recommend it!

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.
