They offered taxi pick up from airport and let us use facilities before check in. Very friendly staff (Dennis) always happy to help! Great free walking tour by Alice very informative and helpful. Met some great people and lots of activities organised by the hostel for a solo or friends travelling. Really nice roof top terrace and rooms were spacious. Had lots of fun. Love mary and zena x

Kitchen didn't really have any equipment, good for making tea but not really anything more. It's a nice hostel with lots of free activities and chances to meet people.. Only issue is that since it's such a corporate style hostel, they lack the desire to accommodate to guests. Ie when I arrived at 6am, even though they had open beds, they refused to check me in until their official check in time of 3pm!!

Man, don't know what to say, the house shares it's history or something. I liked it so much I stayed for a good week. Roof terrace and common area are top notch. Baños coolio as well! Small minus points for my cap being stolen and the fact that my sandals were put in the trash. What gives?!

Amazing hostel. Only downfall were the HOT rooms! I would recommend investing in some ceiling fans, particularly during the Summer heat :)

Really good location, at the centre of Lima and not far from all the historical places and museums. Love the colonial building! Plus walking distance to the mall if you wanna get fancy stuffs and just opposite the MALI museum (free entrance on Thursdays! 30 soles entrance on other days). Also, easy to catch the bus (just in front of the hostel) if you wanna go to Miraflores. Free breakfast is basic bread, coffee or juice, and good travel agency services if you wanna book stuffs over Peru.

Good, clean hostel in central Lima city are - close to historical centre, supermarkets, parks etc. Rooms are large with lockers for each bed and plenty of power points to charge phones, devices etc. The only downside was that during my stay the water got cut due to a landslide somewhere far from Lima...so there was no access for washing hands, brushing teeth, using toilets or showers. And the staff could not give us an alternative place to use facilities or tell us when the water would be back.

If you are looking for an authentic Hostel experience, this is it. This is an old Spanish colonial building with high ceilings and lots of character. There are lots of rooms and lots of travelers to meet. The price is cheap and the hostel offers activities each day or evening. They have a cute bar overlooking the park, travel company, computers & wifi. Location is in front of the National Art Museum and some beautiful parks. It is much more of a day time place to be then an night time pace.

Overall a good hostel. Hot water, good beds. Located in the historical center and only 2 blocks away from CIVA bus terminal. Free Breakfast is bread rolls, jam, tea&coffee. Kitchen is very, very small with not enough equipment or space 1 medium fridge. A couple of couches to chill and a pool table at the bar. There's a lot of cheap places to eat just behind the hostel where you can get a lunch menu for s7 or the "potato dumplimgs" s1.5.
