It is my second time in this place and everytime i arrive i feel like home. The location is just perfect you can get involved with the city activities immidiadely. You wouldn't miss anything. There are also good food prepared by the lovely chef in the evenings and of course it is peruvian and soooo deicious! Including the free wlaking tour activities everything was thought and considered for the guest!
Really enjoyed my stay here. It was the first place I came when I arrived in Peru. Great welcoming atmosphere in an awesome location. Harou the bartender and Michelle at reception are awesome and I highly recommend the free walking tour. Cristian the guide is super knowledgable and I got to see a lot of el centro that I most likely wouldn't have in my short amount of time. Also in an interesting building. Definitely recommend.

Beautiful building, great location, and friendly staffs.
Good hostel located in an old colonial building, a great option if you don't want to stay in Miraflores. Walkable to the fountain show, Plaza de Armas, Iglesia de San Francisco etc. Easy to meet people, bar & common area. Wifi is very poor however, & only "works" in the reception/common area & bar - maybe in your dorm if you get the one right by reception.
Really loved it here! Such a beautiful building and really good value for money though the breakfast is very very average
The house itself is really beautiful, the staff offers a lot of activities and most of the interesting sights are within walking distance. But because the hostel is so central it is always loud, also at night. The free breakfast is okay, nothing special. And the area in general is supposed to be not that safe. The Bathrooms are okay as well, not that clean and it can happen that there are days where water is not available at all for hours.
I am really satisfied about this hostel. I had never give a hostel the highest score, but this one earns it!
The old Spanish building gives you a feeling of the city's past
Beautiful hostel, easy to meet others and lots of fun activities. Hot water is always not enough for my shower. No laundry service and the travel agency quoted a ridiculous price of usd40 for pachacamac day tour. I don't recommend this hostel if all you want is a good night sleep because some people check in late at 1-2am, turn on the light and talk loudly.
Great location for central of the city They offer a free walking guild tour which was great PS need to pay bill by Cash

This place was one of the better hostels I've stayed at in a while. Everything was great about it. It's definitely worth staying here to see central Lima rather than being out in the Miraflores area.
Really nice, clean and friendly hostel. Comfortable beds and good showers.
The place is like a mansion. It's really nice. Too bad the receptionist refused to turn the light on at 4:45am because the Peru Hop was going to pick me up at 5:50 so I was in the lobby. He said lights can only be turned on at 5am. That's stupid! Also, he was sleeping and snoring since 4:30am I went to the lobby. This so called 24 hours receptionist.
Staff is very helpful and knows everything about the City. The beds are very comfy! Its very clean and the showers are hot! Best Pisco-Sours I had on my trip through Peru- for reasonable prices. Its a great place to meet people.
Very good deal for money. People are friendly and helpful. They clean as often as they can. Only problem was the travel agency inside. If you wanna go to Paracas, don't use it. They are way too expensive compare to the tours that local agency offer.
Amazing hostel, one of the best Plush inside And above the rest Great staff, Lovely and kind Lost in lisbon? They will find Posh floors Marble too How is this so cheap Stay, youll do pool, table soccer, booze The bar is sweet Great hospitality And people you'll meet So anyway, Go there! It's at least worth a stay You'll have a ball And sad to leave you may
Guys don t go to Miraflores or other ffancy neighbourhoods...I have been in 3 diferent hostels in Lima and you should definitely go to the center where you can see the real lima (I didn t feel it dangerous at all)!
Great hostel with awesome offers for backpackers! Learned to make my own Ceviche and saw Lima through the eyes of a local during the free walking tour! All English speaking staff, in-house travel agency and an ATM in a secure place. Definitely recommended! Ohh, and, delicious pisco sours! :)
hostel staff were helpful, however the bar staff were not as helpful. the happy hour is not quite a 2 for 1, you just get a slightly bigger glass! kitchen was small but adequate
