Nice hostel with helpful and informative staff.
Nice hostel at a great location in Miraflores. I only stayed there a few nights and didn't get to enjoy any of their BBQ nights or parties but the atmosphere was nice and friendly. The staff is really helpful. The room i stayed in was overlooking the main street so it got pretty noisy in the morning - but you can view this as an encouragement to get up early and seize the day. The only negative thing for me was the lack of hot water. Overall it's a safe choice and I would stay here again.
Can't rave about this hostel enough. It really has made my stay in Lima so much better. The staff here are incredibly helpful, they went out of their way to help me many times, they were social and I will remember them always. The facilities were great and the hostel was always clean. Maurice the barman makes the best gin and tonics!
Upper deck is lovely, great way to relax after a flight to get to Lima!

Overall you're unlikely to find a better value hostel for what you get. Most of the previous comments tell you that they do the important things very well here.
My time in Dragonfly hostel was fabulous. Located very close to Kendedy Park. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Showers were hot and rooms were clean. Its terrace definitely make me recommend this hostel if staying in Miraflores.
Really liked this hostel - clean, safe, good atmosphere and there's a nice rooftop terrace with a good bar. The hostel is only a 5 minute walk from Kennedy Square and is also on a bus route. The staff are so lovely and go out of their way to make sure you have a good stay and help you get the most out of your time in Lima, they definitely make the hostel as good as it is! Would definitely recommend :)
Thanks for the time at the dragonfly. whenever i come back to lima this is where i am gonna stay. perfect. my bed was good, the breakfast was ok, the location is great (close to the ocean and the kennedy parc) but the best: the stuff. they are having fun working there and everybody feels that. they are very helpful - and even sometime they take you out after work and show you the city. i loved it!!
Lovely small hostel with roof terrace and a great selection of craft beers at the cozy bar. In a quiet residential part of Miraflores, but within five minutes of the center and the restaurants. The staff here was the friendliest I've met. Because of the size it's not a huge party hostel, but it still had a fun, friendly vibe.
Staff really helpful and friendly with lots of information. Bar area cool, there seemed to be a lot going on so probably a good place to meet people. The walls are paper thin so we were able to hear the conversations of next door, downstairs and outside perfectly so earplugs are advised but overall we enjoyed our stay. The airport transfer was welcome as well and it didn't seem too much.
The staff is magical, as is the rooftop. It's in a quiet part of town, except for the traffic. Close walking distance to the Miraflores excitement. There's an excellent bakery below. The staff are beautiful, all of them.
The staff was very helpful in every way possible. We met new friends and if we go back thru we will stay there again
Had a blast! Great people, super nice...

Once again a great hostel, just the provided pc is really slow...
Great hostel. Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The only negative is the split kitchen.
Good location in Miraflores. The facilities are a little old but the staff is excellent.
When I read the reviews prior to booking here I was impressed. But unfortunately it did not live up to its reviews and we had a rather upsetting experience with the manager at the hostel. If I could write the whole experience here I would but Im limited on space. But in a nutshell, there was absolutely no customer service and I will never recommend this hostel to anyone. I lost money in the end. Lesson learned.
