“Best hostel in Lima!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

I have visit Lima many times the last years. I have tried several hostels, but after my first stay at HosteLima I have never looked for another place. It has a perfect location a few blocks away from Kennedy Park, it is cheap, clean, has free WiFi and very comfortable beds with the best blankets and let´s not forget the awesome terrace where you can relax in fresh air. And the main reason you have to pick this place to stay is because of all the staff at HosteLima, they are just absolutely amazing! Ziv and Nancy are one of the most carring person I have ever met and they have managed to transfer that to the rest of the staff. They will all help you out with whatever question or problem you might have. It actually feels like you are visiting a family home and not a hostel.
If you are gonna sleep over in Lima, choose HosteLima!

Dear travelers !
I usually don't do this, but for this hostel i'll make an exception. This hostel is the most awesome hostel in the city and not just because its homie comfortable feeling, but especially because its owner Ziv is the nicest person ever. He will help you in everything you need and will always try to find a solution if you have a problem. Plus the hostel have a killer new rooftop and its really fun seating there with people!! When in lima, i highly recommend this great hostel ! Have fun !!

Stayed in this hostel for a few days but no atmosphere not helped by the fact it was full of big groups of israelis who only wanted to socialise with themselves. the hostel has a rooftop terrace that is totally wasted with nothing up there. It seems the owners of this hostel can´t really be bothered to put any effort it as it has great potential. Also people were smoking in the tv room stinking it out despite no smoking signs. However the staff on reception were great and very helpful.

I had great experience in HosteLima!
It was my first time staying in a hostel. The place was great and Valeria was so friendly. I got to know other travelers and we quickly became friends. We had drinks together , played in the bar and I went sightseeing with one of the other travelers staying there. I would highly recommend this place to anyone traveling to Lima. You won't be disappointed it's a great place to stay!

...but when you have passed a certain age some things have lost their charm. Like not being able to use the kitchen because people don't do their dishes and leave the kitchen in a filthy mess. And listening to music all night (very thin walls and no threasholds). And finding people sleeping on all the sofas in the common room = no place left if you want to watch TV. Not to mention that a lot of guests are smoking EVERYWHERE although there is 'no smoking'.

However, the young staffmembers were all very nice and all of them spoke excellent English. They were also very helpful, even though the knowledge of the area seemed limited.

We had a double room. NO PLACE to keep your stuff. For god's sake, get the pictures down from the walls and put some hangers and shelves up! It is nice to be able to hang your towel to dry for a start. No cleaning was done during our stay (4 nights I think).

I will not stay there again, but I think HosteLima can be great if you are around 20. And I felt secure there all the time. But frankly, it is also a bit overpriced.

I have been all over central and south america in more than 20-30 different hostels. This one is by far the best I have been in to. The service is just great! the staff and the owner itself always available for any question or advise. Beside it is super clean!! seems like they have more cleaners than regular hotel :P Also the hostel is equipped with bar, restaurant, pool table, travel agency and many more cool things. And 1 last thing. Best price in Lima

Room Tip: If the hostel is not full they take out beds and the room become big and very very comfortable
