Please don't book any excursions through Sara, the travel agent. On two different occasions we were mislead by her. The hostal itself has a good location. The female staff way better then the guys. Breakfast was normal. The Wi-Fi was average.


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.
