Really enjoyed our stay in Ekeko. The atmosphere is great and the staff is always willing to help. The building could use a couple of fixes and the breakfast could be better.

Great hostel. Dorm was good, had power outlets and shelf in bed for your stuff. Breakfast in the morning was basic but had nice fresh bread and coffee. Staff were great, David helped us with making bookings and gave us lots of information on check in. The location is very safe and very close to shops, restaurants etc. + there is a great cafe 30sec walk from hostel. Was quiet when we were there but made it nice to watch a DVD and have a beer.

Very good hostel, simple and does the job well for those arriving or leaving this 1-night-stop city. Staff operate shifts so desk is always manned and are VERY helpful and friendly, they will help you with anything, even locating 5 bookstores with top accuracy for us. The breakfast is simple but ample, and there is plenty of space to relax - The hostel never felt crowded and during the day was quiet. Rooms and bathrooms clean. I would stay here again and recommend it to others.

Very homely hostel, chilled out vibes with a lot of facilities. Large kitchen, tv room decked out with couches and a whole array of movies to choose from. Locations great as it's close to everything needed! Real cheap as well.

First of all David and Leo were both very helpful and friendly and offered lots of recommendations for places to eat etc. The lounge was nice but in general the place felt dirty and mouldy, especially the bathroom upstairs. We had a double room with shared bathroom next door. The room was spacious, but smelled damp. The wall facing the bathroom had clear signs of water damage from the bathroom. This was our first hostel in Peru, but compared to Ecuador and Colombia it was poor value.

That what made the hostel a pleasant stay was the very helfpul and friendly staff member David. It was fun talking to him in German as he is sooo talented and interested in languages! Rooms and cleanness were average, breakfast could be better!

Talkative owner, nice tv area with cosy sofas. Kitchen is old and not very well maintained or clean, but functional. The room we stayed in smelled very moldy, and the bathroom could be cleaner.

Clean hostel. Warm blankets not supplied. Very quiet if that is what you like, but pretty boring atmosphere. They let me leave my bags come and go until my flight at 7pm.

Safe and quiet location so you can get a decent sleep but bring some warm pyjamas because the rooms are cold! Staff were very helpful and even arranged an airport pickup service for us with only 4 hours notice. Breakfast is light but there is a supermarket and bakery 2 minutes away so you can grab something on your way out. Clean, safe and quiet - a decent choice for miaflores.

Stayed here less than a day as I was only meeting up with a friend here and then catching a flight late that night. But, it seemed very chilled out and tranquil. They had a nice lounge room with a plasma, many DVD's and a guitar that you could play. Staff were friendly and the rooms were clean.

one staff does not speak spanish. the other was really friendly, helpfull and full of languages. hot water was okay, but the shared bathroom was full of mold. the kitchen is big but there are few pans so it is only possible to cook one person at a time. the room was okay however also a little wet inside.
