Great place to stay if you need/want to be downtown. Good breakfast - and you don't need to wash your dishes. Got the cheapest room, and it was still very nice: good spacious mattress and feather blanket (great for Lima's winter). -- not enough outlet power in the room - but there's a power locker in one of the halls. And internet is limited to the main hall.. But highly recommendable

internet was horrible and didnt work AT ALL. You could not get a connection in your room, let alone in the main room.'The two computers that they had available for use were difficult to use because the keyboards were broken. Also, if you didnt take a shower at 6 or 7 am, you had freezing cold water. There was not really a social factor at all. The staff were fairly pleasant and answered questions, but werent really willing to go above and beyond the specific question asked.

Amazing building, nice clean comfy beds. Great Piscos! Location is give and take. It's not in a "good area" for after dark, but during the day it's fine. Close to museums and parks, and only about 20 minutes on foot to Plaza de Armas. Overall I'd recommend this place.

The walking tour and cooking lesson hosted by the hostel were really great. Such a good experience being taken round the local market to buy ingredients before being taught to make ceviche. Friendly staff as well. The lockers were large which was good as the rooms didn't lock from the outside. Only downside is that the showers were quite cold.

Great location near the centre/old town (didn't want to stay in Miraflores), comfy dorms and great showers. Nice atmosphere at night and delicious (if expensive) food!

Cool building with decent facilities in a nice but boring part of the city. Kitchen is good enough, showers are really nice. One odd downside we as there was only wifi in the common areas, which meant the the congregating areas were less social then they could have been.

This hostel is in a good location and safe. Do not expect luxury and a little noisy, but very good value.

Good hostel to be at our first night in Lima. Central to downtown to see the sites. Wifi was pretty spotty, but overall great facility.
