Very beautiful building. Not particularly friendly. Private room was dingy and a bit noisy as near the bar, but nice enough an good private bathroom with excellent hot shower

great bar staff, great old building although the location is apparently not the greatest (according to staff).hostel is close to museums and shops but not night life we stayed in the hostel bar while here as we were advised there isn't much near by and we were enjoying ourselves.


A great building, comfortable rooms. Wifi can be abit temperamental. Breakfast is bread rolls, jam and juice with tea or coffee. Great location close to the parks.


Amazing hostel. Can only recommend this one. Have been in countless hostels but have never rated that high.


Felt really comfortable, very friendly atmosphere and perfect for meeting other people if you're a lone traveller. You can book excursions etc through the reception, which was staffed pretty late (or maybe all night?) Staff were always happy to extend your stay or help you book transport. The room was clean, secure and comfortable. My only hitch was a particularly noisy guest in the next room, but this is no fault of the hotel's, and I am a light sleeper. Thanks guys! I'll recommend.

The main receptionist is incredibly rude, and the place has no atmosphere. Other than that it's a great hostel.


If you're interested in the Historic Centre of Lima I'd highly reccomend this joint.


The included breakfast was a bonus until it was time to add some butter to the bread rolls. From then it became an epic struggle to open the seal on the complimentary butter. Throughout our three days stay, we managed to peel the seal cleanly open a measley one time. The other times the foil ripped like wet toilet paper, leaving the foil looking like a backgammon gaming board.

beautiful building, nice sitting room and bar. helpful staff and 24h reception. sadly on a very noisy main road but I would return here. Central Lima isn´t the best part of town though - it´s good for sights but not much happening at night. you will probably end up moving to Miraflores. but its good to start a stay in Lima here.
