very nice and friendly staff, not able to speak English but managed to introduce all facilities to guest in ?Spanish which is very impressive. plenty of toilet and shower room. convenient location, 2mins walk to coast or bus stop leading u to central lima.


I spent a month in this hostel because I enjoyed it there so much. The atmosphere was so relaxed. The wi fi was great, it's in an excellent location and of course, the price is great. The staff were great, really welcoming. The showers were always hot, I never once had a problem with hot water. The best price around, it might not be for some because it's not a 5 star Hilton Hotel, but then again, if you're a true backpacker this place has everything you need.


disgusting.. room stank..everything was dirty. don't bother staying here


We arrived at 8pm, already advised our arrival time, the fist man at reception couldn't find our reservation amd advised that someone would arrive in 10 mins. After 20 mins of waiting in the dark lounge an extremely rude man (I suspect the owner) arrived abruptly asking if we speak English (which as English people we did). He asked what we wanted....in a hostel?! We explained that we had a reservation in 4 bed dorm, took us to a 6 bed and said we were lucky to get a room at all! DO NOT STAY HERE


Very relaxed and chilled out hostel, great atmosphere! Fantastic staff who are willing to go out their way for you. Great location too. Mattress was a bit hard but other than that can't have any complaints!


We were in a tiny dorm meant for only 6 people but there were two couples sharing single beds in there so we had 8 people in there. One guy had to put his suitcase in the ensuite bathroom! The shower in our room didn't work so the whole hostel had only one shower, which as result of overuse was filthy! Wifi was good and staff were quite friendly.
