The staff was great and super helpful; location is about 15 min walk to the center; and the facility is eclectic which i loved. The only negative thing I would say is that the rooms don't have heat and the showers were temperamental. For a warm shower you had to catch at the right time.

This is a cool modern looking hostel with art everywhere it has a good breakfast, quiet environment, friendly staff. Located right in Miraflores it was an easy walk everywhere we wanted to go. Gonzalo was great, he hooked us up with maps and told us where to find surfing lessons. The breakfast was nice compared to some other hostels with eggs, fruit and toast plus coffee / tea. Would definitely recommend it was a great home base while exploring the city of Lima!

Staff weren't particularly helpful, they would answer questions when asked but didn't seem very bothered about going out of there way to help. They didn't really explain much on arrival, ie where and how to get the breakfast. The place was very cold as the doors seemed to be in a perminent state of openness dispite it being winter. The actual property it's self was quite nice and was in a quiet location.

Solid hostel. Worth it. Good location in Miraflores, more towards the beach. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Hot water and free breakfast was greatly appreciated. Only area of improvement would be thicker blankets. In the middle of winter it got very cold at night. Most other hostels have thick duvets, but at 511 they were quiet thin.

Great hostel, that is more like a hotel (if you book their private room & bathroom. It was an easy walk to Jose Pardo and the waterfront. It seemed like a luxury stay after many days of hiking and camping!

Very friendly staff! I only stayed here for about 14 hour before flying out to cusco- but the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The hostel is 2 blocks from the miraflores beach- great place for walking, jogging, people watching, ect.

Cute place, staff was very helpful. Our ensuite bathroom was nice and clean, but shower was as not hot. Might have been because two others showered before I did. Everything in the hostel was clean except for the extra bathroom on the first floor. Only stayed one night, but would have stayed longer if there hadn't been a strong chemical smell in the morning. Probably from some construction or remodeling.

We had a great stay! The staff was extremely helpful and accomodating - my two friends and I actually paid for a dorm but since there was a private room available when we checked in the staff upgraded us to the private for free!

This is pretty plush for a hostel and doesn't have much of an atmosphere. The internet is excellent though ans it is very close to Miraflores beach.

This is a stylish break from the mega-hostel scene in peru. The owner could not be more helpful. Come here if you want some stellar restaurant recommendations

This is one of the nicest placest i ´ve been to , tastefully decorated , planty of common areas to chill with other travelers , and an unbeatable location a block away from the ocean all at a great price . As is everywhere in peru the staff is very friendly and accomadetaing ,and they served us a tasty breakfast . The only set back is not enough hot water in the showers and the bathroom for the dorms is ensuite which can be a bit delicate for you and other lodgers .

This place is beyond stellar. The property is amazing as well as the staff. We were so lucky to have this as our first stop in Peru, we even decided to come back and stay for another few days after visiting cusco. This is most definitely the most comfortable I have ever been at a hostel, and would recommend it to everyone I know!! Don't miss out come stay here!

This was one of the best places we stayed at in Peru. Super clean, nice room with new TV and king sized bed, cool decor, very friendly and helpful owners/staff, excellent location in Miraflores right near the waterfront. Common areas are very cozy and it feels like home. Also, the owner is very handsome.

Vibes are great here, as is the breakfast. I've also never been better taken care of by staff - one night they were full and the hostel I had booked did not answer the door at 1:30AM, so the 511 staff gave me the couch, a pillow, a blanket, and breakfast the next day. Really wonderful!
