Really young forced party environment... did not have hot water- rooms had a musty smell -it was definitely not worth the money. Tacky music blaring and located on a very loud street.However the civeche class was great- minus the fact you don't actually get to make it yourself. The walking tour was a waste of time and you may have well googled Lima and walked yourself. Tour guide was cute but read from a paper and it felt like she was just trying to sell us things so she could get free stuff...

Pros: Really helpful staff, clean hostel with good standard facilities, walking distance to all the historical sights, area felt like a more gritty "real" Lima than Miraflores Cons: The location is not great for nightlife or good eats - kind of wish I'd stayed in Miraflores and done daytrips to Lima Centro. A few bars, one decent club, and a few good streetfood spots nearby, but mostly bad fast food and tourist traps (bit annoying when a staff member directed us to a street full of these)

Overall, had a good stay. Biggest annoyance though, was the little amount of restaurants near by. It had an nice bar. The hostel itself was absolutely beautiful! It was huge as well. It was way too expensive though, but at the same time... it is Lima after all. It is no where close to miraflores however the buildings in the area are beautiful. The shower changed drastically in temperature every 20 seconds but not a big deal.

The free walking tour and cooking class alone are worth staying here. Great location and amazing mansion, it's a classic hostel and has everything you need and more. 20min walk from the dancing fountains also.

The architecture and setup of the hostel itself is absolutely GORGEOUS. The staff is helpful with information from regulated taxi costs to activity ideas. There's always something going on at 1900! It was within a 30 minute walking distance from the Plaza de Armas and a decent amount of historical Lima. 20 sol taxi ride to Miraflores & 5 minute walk from a mall with supermarket. There were lots of bathroom facilities which was nice!

This was a great hostel! If you want to be downtown, then it's a perfect location. It's a close walk to anything you'd want to be in downtown. That said, location is both an upside and a downside to this location. Downtown has about two days worth of things to do. Everything else to do is in or near Miraflores which is a short bus ride away but too far to walk. Also, Miraflores has much cheaper transportation to and from the airport. The hostel has a good atmosphere, and the staff is nice.

+ Free Ceviche cooking lesson, city walk & breakfast (though very basic) + Clean showers & toilets - Very big hostel, so maybe not the best place to meet people - Sometimes very loud Overall the place was OK, but a bit expensive

Everything was great except I couldn't get a hot shower. Great wifi, plenty of plugs, friendly staff. They also cook dinner that you can buy every night which was a nice touch. Also they organize activities which makes meeting people easier
