“The better budget option in Lima”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Inca Life is certainly one of the cheaper options in the Miraflores neighbourhood in Lima. The staff often looks at you like they have no idea what you're talking about, but in the end they were very friendly. The hostel is located in a very safe neighbourhood, close to the centre and the main avenue of Miraflores. The place is not very fancy but very clean and has hot showers and an equiped kitchen. The breakfast is more than average. They should invest in new mattresses though.

...my partner and I stayed in a private room with ensuite - the room and bathroom was very big for such a small hostel (had a double and single bed). The room was street facing but the neighbourhood was not overly noisy. We managed to have very comfortable sleep.

The hostel had a small communal area, which people were allowed to smoke in (with the window open) - and to be honest, the smoke tended to filter through the hostel, so wasnt really a fan of that. But the communal room had loads of movies if you wanted a night in...

The kitchen was quite spacious, but like many hostels, the cooking ware was pretty average. But given that, you were allocated some bread, butter and juice each morning. We tended to purchase groceries from the amazing gourmet supermarket from across the street. The food was really good quality and inexpensive, so we opted to cook most meals at the hostel. There was ample space in the fridge and a shelf was usually allocated to a room.

Only main con on this hostel was that our bathroom kinda had a greasy/dirty feeling to the floor, basin and shower areas. The kitchen just needs some paper towel and the dishcloths replaced as it felt like you werent really "cleaning" your dishes after using them.

Overall during our 4 night stay there, it was very quiet, so good if you're not into busy backpackers, the location is very good - close to the central of Miraflores and very safe.. cheap and cheerful..

Loved this hostel! Small, cozy, comfortable, like a home away from home in a big city in the best part of town, walking distance to everything. The staff are friendly and welcoming and helpful in everything you need. I loved staying here and would recommend to anyone going through Lima.
