Comfortable beds, good location in Miraflores and really friendly staff. Oh and awsome good pressure, hot water showers! The breakfast is basic with bread and cereals. If they would change the cereals into gluten free cereals then the breakfast would have been suitable for gluten free people as well. A small change that would make many people happy. :)


Very nice place to stay with helpful staff, good breakfast and hot showers. Can be a bit noisy at night.


Super friendly staff. Great location.


Most of the staff (particularly Alonso) were brilliant and eager to assist. This hostel is, perhaps, a couple of blocks out of the way from the shopping district but well-located to the beach and, besides, if you can't walk a few blocks for entertainment, then what the hell are you doing in South America? You could stay at the Flying Dog Hostel, but the traffic and fumes would easily keep you up all night. Honestly, this is probably the best hostel experience I've had.


We stayed in a double room with en suite and overall enjoyed our stay. The bathrooms were a bit small but functional. There is a nice roof terrace with bar open til 11pm with a good (if slightly pricey) selection of craft beers, and the kitchen/dining area is a decent size. Cooking facilities are basic, as is the breakfast but there are lots of good restaurants and bars within a 10 -15 min walk to Parque Kennedy. The hostel also makes an effort to put on themed nights most days.


Fun hostel, in a great location in miraflores. Staff are really nice and helpful and the showers/wifi works really well. The place could do with a fresh coat of paint tho. Wouldnt say its that cheap, but miraflores is pricey are.


This is without doubt the worst hostel I've stayed in. The room was hot & smelly and an absolute mess when we arrived, with items over the unoccupied beds (our beds) also. The staff were almost non-existent having to wait long periods at reception to speak with them. The breakfast was shocking, stale bread in a basket hidden away... that was it. No juice to be seen, nor tea, coffee, cereal, spreads. Lockers not big enough for bags. Rooms too small. Overall a small cramped, smelly, dirty hostel!

Owner Comment (Hide)
Dear, Thank you for your comments. We have different types of dorm and this is first time we have this type of complain. the day you arrived, we were fully booked, travelers have their staff and we recommend to arrange their belongings but we can not force them to do it. Concerning breakfast, we disagree your comment, there was everything on the table, fresh juice, organic coffee, bread was missing?, you could tell us and we could solve it immediately. Now we have fruit, cereal, yogurt.


Great staff - super friendly and helpful. Amazing location within walking distance to tons of bars, restaurants and shopping. Lovely rooftop terrace. Beds aren't super comfortable and light sleepers may have trouble sleeping in during the week as traffic is heavy on the street outside.


This is an ok hostel, in my opinion too expensive for what it is. I think the best option is the 10 bed dorm, there need to be more bathrooms and there isn't really a vibe, when i was there nobody was at the bar on the terrace ever which is a shame because I love open space.


Awesome place and very nice staff.


Can't complain about this hostel, staff lovely, beds comfy, wifi excellent (Netflix good), lovely rooftop, good location overall can't complain. Loved it


Great Hostel, arranged airport pickup even with our flight cancellations and delays. Room was small but clean and comfy, bathrooms great. Travel agent in house was the best we have talked to on our trip!


We loved our stay at Dragonfly - one warning though. Don't use the laundry service next door. Absolutely hopeless, was so late with our washing we almost missed our bus to Puno. We had paid extra to be done quickly. Then we found she hadn't returned some very expensive jeans. Not the hostels fault, just don't send anyone there. Worst laundry service in Peru.


We enjoyed this hostel very much for our stay in Miraflores, Lima. We rented the private suit with a double bed/private bath. The water was hot and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast is - juice/tea and toast basically and that is the standard in Peru fyi. Bring ear plugs because the lounge is right by that room. The help we received here from the staff was top notch, we couldn't ask for friendlier and more helpful people. Would recommend staying again.


The staff at the hostel were awesome and very cheerful and helpful. The hostel itself is in a great location, but inside feels very small and cramped. The common room is the rooftop or the kitchen.


I had a wonderful stay at dragon fly. The staff were excellent! Also the tour operator Sara was extremely helpful and patient. The facilities were quiet good however there was a fowl smell coming from the waste pipes in the male showers. All in all a positive experience. The roof top is a great place to chill out, drink and meet others too!


Delightful receptionists. Not enough showers but location is perfect. Keep up the good work.


First when we arrived we thought the place seemed pretty small and cramped. And it kinda is, but the hostel totally won us over. The roof top bar was really nice and it was easy to meet people. The staff was super friendly and helpful and the coffee at breakfast was the best in Peru so far. Also nice location near El Parque del Amor and some cheap places to eat. Would definitely recommend!


Great hostel in the heart of Miraflores. The staff were very informative, fantastic wifi, comfortable beds and a very good rooftop bar. The atmosphere wasn't great when I was there but it was a Sunday and Monday. It has potential to be a lively place. Strongly recommend.


They gotta finish the work with their shower asap! Only 3 showers for the entire hostel seems horrible! Nice atmosphere, small cozy hostel. Rooms need better AC or at least few more fans.
