The location is very good, but the rooms and the bathrooms are very dirty. A member of the staff told us that to clean the room, we must pay her U$ 10. The wifi does not work in the room.

It was a nice place to stay in Lima, very centric. Staff (guy) was nice and helpfull but unfortunately when I called again to make another booking they lost my reservation and the girl at the reception did not make any effort to help. Besides, good place!

Che Lagarto was an excellent introduction into South America for me. The staff are warm and friendly. The hostel has a great South American atmosphere with people from Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Peru. It's was so much conversing with these people. The majority of people speak good English, which I found really helpful as my Spanish is limited. It was like a little South American family. The bar staff are awesome and funny, they'll be more than happy to make you a Pisco sour.

We stayed in a private and the room was really nice and spacious with big windows opening up over Miraflores. The rest of the hostel was just ok... Kind of felt like a hospital... Cold without much character. The breakfast was average just bread and cereal. Nice enough hostel but very average.

Place was ok but they didn't recognise the 15% deposit I paid when booking with HostelWorld, had an arguement with them but had to pay it again. Other than that everything was just ok. Have had m uch better for the money. Bedding was average at best.

A decent place to stay on arriving in Lima but after staying in other hostels it seems Che Lagarto needs a bit of work. Lockers were broken so we could not lock our bags away. Bathrooms don't appear to be cleaned as often as would be good. All the same, good location and friendly welcome.

I have now stayed here twice and I love this place. Great starting point, solid free breakfast, excellent wifi for work and whatever other purposes. Miraflores can be a bit pricey but you can find cheap options anywhere. Beach is right down the main street.

The staff at Che Legarto are excellent. Very friendly and there is always someone who speaks English. Its been a pleasure staying here and I highly recommend it for someone looking for an affordable,quiet,clean,hostel with a perfect location in the heart of Miraflores.

They arranged a taxi pickup from the airport and also helped me to catch one as I left. The staff were all very friendly and spoke English well. The hostel is in a good location to walk around Miraflores.

The matrimonial room (for couples) had two single beds together, a really smelly bathroom. I asked to change room, they provided a new one, smaller but with a regular couple bed. The bed clothes didnt seem clean. We had only 1 power plug in the room. There was a condom packing below the bed. Sometimes we had no hot water, sometimes no water at all.
