What a great building! Lovely mosaic floors and wood panelled walls. Stayed in a double room which was basic with a fan. The bar was really nice with well priced drinks and friendly staff. A basic breakfast of bread rolls and jam, coffee and juice was included. The reception staff were really helpful and assisted us getting a taxi to the airport for a fair price as we don't speak Spanish. There was a BBQ social whilst we were there's no other events were organised too.

awesome hostel. great location. not too far to walk from the main square. really great staff. cool bar area and balconies over looking the business of the main road. really comfy beds and good sheets etc. i have nothing to complain about. would have loved to stay longer.


Only downfall is the noise of Limas traffic at night, they beep their horns all day all night, I presume same problem would exist at all other city hostels.


Staff was very helpful. If you want to stay in the city centre, I'd recommend this hostel. It's on a main street so it can be very noise due to traffic. Bring earplugs for sleeping.


Nice enough rooms and the travel agency is useful to book buses but otherwise nothing special. We got woken up a few times by people coming in and talking loudly late at night. Breakfast was pretty poor. Would be nice to have something other than just bread and jam. One of the computers didn't work well and we often had to wait a long time for the other. The kitchen was cramped and could do with an oven! Two gas hobs for that many people is not really enough.
