Very nice hostel in Lima! Gorgeous building, 30 mins walk to the centre, 10 mins to a big supermarket, friendly & helpful staff, simple breakfast included, free walking tour by Alice & great ceviche cooking lesson by Gavin! :) I found it very safe & chill here, great hot shower (very clean bathroom), plenty of safety boxes, a nice bar & social area. Very well organised everything, all you need for a backpacker! No complains at all! Will definitely come back here when I fly back to Lima!

Great hostal in downtown lima. Locale was OK for seeing the downtown sights, however not many restaurants or bars to visit. A short bus ride to barranco or mira flores for those things. Very busy traffic near the hostal. Staff was helpful and friendly, hostal was very clean and organized. A large mall across the street was helpful for picking get up a few things. Don't miss the free walking tour put on by the hostal - it was one of the the best I have been on.

Staff is not very friendly, volunteers were loudly speaking at the bar area about 2am. Bathroom floors were wet and smelled terrible. The area was kind of creepy at night, and is very far from Miraflores, where real fun happens. I would not recommend staying there if you are by yourself, or if you like to have a more convenient location.

Great place to stay if you want to be central however Miraflores is about a 30 minute bus ride away. Staff were friendly and facilities always clean.

The hostel has a good location in the historical district. It's about 20mins by taxi (20soles) from the Miraflores district with the beach. The staff is cleaning all the time. They have great Ceviche cooking lesson and free walking tours. The rooms are big with big lockers. We'd go back.

I loved my stay in this hostel! The rooms were nice & spacious with lockers for your backpack. There was plenty of areas to chill out and the bar was great for in the evenings. They offered meals everyday, a little overpriced but there is a kitchen although it is very small. They also had a free walking tour and a free cooking class. Staff were all friendly & helpful. The only downside being that the wifi only works in the bar & lobby. I would stay here again

Everything in this hostel was fantastic! The building is absolutely gorgeous! Well worth a stay and great value for money! The only complaint would be that the wifi can be a bit dodgy at times!!!
