Hostel was nice, staff very friendly (Chris and Daisy), room was spacious and clean, bathroom clean too except the toilet bin had no lid which I found a bit distasteful, nice view from our room. Location was very noisey, people congregate outside and make so much noise. Entrance to beach was closed so we had to walk to miraflores to get to the coast which defeated our purpose of staying in barranco. Very close to nice restaurants. Not much of an 'atmosphere' here and wifi was very slow.

Great location with path down to the beach opposite the hostal. Communal kitchen not particularly well equipped if you're self catering. Helpful staff

Nice place to stay. Best part about it was the location, next to the ocean and in the heart of Barranco.

Chris was super helpful, we really appreciated his advice and information. Breakfast was average but sufficient. Transfer service to the airport was a great service. Overall we really enjoyed our 2 night stay and were happy we chose to stay in Barranco!

The wifi connection was extremely weak in the rooms. The curtains were also too thin and let in a lot of the street lights outside.

BBI is a great hostel with English speaking staff. Very close proximity to downtown Barranco which is far more artist and gives you the true cultural atmosphere of Lima/Peru than neighboring Miraflores. Multi colored buildings including the hostel represent the bohemian nature of this district with great food choices. Staff was friendly, always courteous with a bright attitude.

Decent spot, very quiet, great location for Barranco night life. Lighting was awful (a weird thing to say, perhaps, but noticeable). Showers were decent, and in the rooms so that's nice. Not a lot of activity here so a good place for a good night's rest.
