Everyone that works at this hostel is so nice, supportive, helpful, and welcoming. Highly recommend, and a beautiful space to boot.

The environment of this hostel was very weird. From the moment you arrive, the various people that work the desk, they don't speak very good English, so you'll definitely need to speak Spanish to get by. The environment is very bare and unwelcoming, Random bean bags thrown everywhere, paint wasn't done well in the rooms, and the bar that is supposed to exist in the sitting area doesn't exist. False advertising. WiFi doesn't work in the private rooms at all, so you're forced to inside.

I felt comfortable there. Extremely good in terms of value:It's very safe and the staff was extremely helpful,the breakfast everyday,rooms are beatiful and clean, and they couldn't be better located and best of all there was always a clean and hot shower. Definitely a good place to stay!!!

The hostel has a great location in a peaceful neighborhood. What bothered me was a visible layer of mold on our double room's walls. You could also smell it when you entered the room. This is really bad for one's health. The WiFi signal did not reach the room, so that was another inconvenience. WiFi routers are not expensive and it isn't hard to spread them around the house to get good coverage everywhere.

Nice location in peacful area of Milaflores 5 min from shore park and 10-15 min to kennedy park. There is so much space in this hostel and you can really feel like home there. The strange thing is that the building is not marked with the name of the hostel so u should know the exact address to get there or try to ask the locals.

The breakfast could be better! Just bread and butter or jam! A slice of cheese would make the whole difference!

This place was awesome. The location in miraflores is really nice as there are lots of parks and nice walks to take - there's also loads of great restaurants around and it's safe. The hostel was also great - good kitchen and nice breakfast (typical SA breakfast). The staff were helpful and the Internet worked great. Would definitely stay here again

This hostel was very accommodating and the staff went above and beyond to meet your needs. Our flight arrived around 1:30am and they arranged our taxi and stayed up so that we could check in. They gave excellent recommendations for foods and local businesses. Pedro also helped us out a lot when dealing with Peruvian domestic flights. Awesome deal for the price! The only thing that wasn't so great was the showers the water did not really warm up and the water pressure was extremely inconsistent.

I am shocked how this hostel is rated so well. This has been the worst hostel we've stayed in SA over 3 months. Breakfast is awful. Stale bread and jam. and thats if you're up early, before it runs out. Everyone was buying their own breakfast at the supermarket. The bar collects dust. Bathrooms never have toilet paper. The staff are hopeless - restaurant and tourist tips were by far the worst. Some staff know nothing about Lima. We have since stayed in House Project which is much better.
