Staff was extremely friendly and helpful but that can't make up for the face that the place is a dump and not very clean. Breakfast is skimpy it's quite a distance from the main squares and the place is in need of a nice clean and overhall. As for security, the place is surrounded by electric fence but you can bypass the security simply by putting your finger in the latch and opening the unlocked door. Sketchy!.


Amazing staff and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Great place to chill out with comfy sofas, cable TV, DVDs etc. Very basic breakfast. Hot dormitory. Main shower room has pathetic pressure (others available). Overall recommended! I really liked it.


The staff both Leo and David were amazingly helpful. They gave us directions everywhere we needed to go with a map and highlighted roots. They also helped us book bus tickets, which were dropped off at the hostel. The location is perfect in Miraflores. It is in a quite neighbourhood but very close to everything you would want as a tourist. We will go back and stay there next week!


The room was not clean. We had a shared bathroom and the bathroom was dirty.

Really nice place in a secure and nice neighborhood in Miraflores. There are coffee shops and supermarkets nearby and a really helpful staff. We stayed at 3 different rooms, the ones with doubled bed are quite good, however room number 4 (three beds) isn't nice at all: hard mattresses and a bit smelly. overall a great experience.


Really friendly staff.


Nice hostel, a short trip from Miraflores downtown. Fiendly staff, good kitchen and also a guitar! One, two corners should be renovated.


Amazing staff and lovely hostel with areas to hangout and talk to other guests. TV with cable and films available too. Loved it. Price is reasonable too. Downsides are basic breakfast and wifi that does not really reach the bedrooms. But in any case recommended!


Excellent experience, really nice decorated hostel with helpful staff. Close to downtown Miraflores and just one block from "Huaca Pucllana" archeological pre- inca building. Comfortable common areas, nice and large kitchen and pretty close to a big supermarket. I will come back in 2 weeks!


The staff is extremely helpful. The only downside is it is a bit noisy at night but the overall stay is was great!

The staff was kind enough to support us with everything we needed: booking a bus, recs on restaurants , shopping, etc. Met a lot of great people too. This hostel is one of the best!

The facility has been neglected over an extended period of time, is in need of repairs, practical and cosmetic improvements and replacement of some of tye furniture. There was no where to hang my clothes in my room. This hostal qualifies as a low budget back pack hostal, but is overprized. I felt very uncomfortable, and asked for a refund, which I got.

The Staff and people staying at the ostel were all very nice. I Stayed in the doy, so that ube ensuite and it was quite ok, big roo, but the bathroom had mold and there was a tiny pillow. The main problem was the comunal kitchen, wich was very nasty, old and dirty, so that we felt a bit disgusted in cooking there. But overall, for a few days, the place is OK.


Saludos a todos los q compartimos fin de año

Great hostel, lovely staff. Excellent location. No complaints. Would definitely stay again.


Lima is a pretty scary place and saying in this hostel did not make me feel very safe. There is also no atmosphere/ nothing to do. It doesnt seem to get very busy either so being a solo traveller, I wasn't able to meet anyone.


Such a great hostel, I went back again! Always a good visit at Ekeko.


Nice, small hostel located in Miraflores, next to the Huacapucllana historical site. Staff was really helpful with giving directions and was also helpful with arranging transport.


Good stay at this hostel - firstly the staff are all very friendly and helpful - once checked in they give you excellent map and recommendations - the facilities here are good except no hairdryers - location good,safe and quiet, 10 mins for parque Kennedy - Huaca Pucllana is right beside it. Our room (Double, private ensuite) had bit of shady construction but overall highly recommend.


Great reception. They booked us transfers to/from the airport, really honest people. David is a remarkable receptionist: besides being very friendly and hospitable, he spoke English/Portuguese very well (plus other languages), this made our lives very easy! Breakfast is ok, honest. The only bad things were water pressure - quite bad (though we stayed in other cities and realized this seems to be a general Peruvian problem) and the room we stayed in the 2 first nights was a bit ugly/deteriorated.
