really nice in a quiet place, everything you need, not to big, so come in touch with other travellers, and not to forget (although it is just indirectly connected to the hostel): the panaderia next to the hostel is great (above all: Ciabatta with chocolate) - I think the hostel is also buying the bread for the breakfast there, very good
This isn`t the best located hostel in Miraflores as it`s 8 blocks north of Parque Kennedy. Saying that, the hostel itself is nice and cosy. This isn`t a party hostel at all. The dorms are comfortable, lockers are provided and the bathrooms are clean and the showers are hot. Staff are multilingual and are eager to please and are helpful. A simple breakfast of bread and coffee is served in the morning and there`s a computer for guest use and a kitchen as well. I would happily stay here again.
This is a regular hostel, but the guys at the front desk rules. They are really really kind and willing to help. =) =) The place is nice, but the bathrooms (specially the showers) sucks. The beds are regular. Location is fine, 10 blocks from the centre of Miraflores (touristic neighborhood of the town).
I totally loved this hostel. It had a really friendly, laid back kinda vibe and all the staff went out of their way to help you. Really large kitchen, inside and outside common area, and felt very safe and secure there. My only complaint really was the breakfast, which was literally just bread and jam, and that wifi wasn't great in the bedroom. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone.
Kitchen is tiny and just okay, the staff was friendly enough and helpful but not overly so or very welcoming, location is in tourist central so if you're into that it's perfect, atmosphere was awesome, bathrooms awesome and clean, rooms clean, breakfast was bread, butter, jam, and either meat and tomatoes or watermelon and avocado with tea and coffee- pretty good overall. OH AND THE SHOWERS WERE WONDERFUL. I've never felt quite as comfortable at a hostel before.
Nice clean spacious hostel in a very nice neighbourhood close to transport into the old centre or walking distance to shopping areas of Miraflores ery few minor comments : Breakfast is quite basic. Also private bathrooms aren't cleaned while you're there (we were there 4 days) One staff member was welcoming and helpful, another is a little more abrupt (maybe because of language) and another doesn't speak English. It's not quite in the action of Miraflores but that could be a plus.
The hostel is in Miraflores, the neighborhood which considered to be the best in Lima, though not in the center of it. The hostel is quit, not a party hostel, but is a very good place to meet good people. The staff is amazing and will be glad to help with any request, usual or unusual!
A well run hostel in a great location. Excellent helpful friendly staff. Thoroughly recommended.

Good hostel. Well stocked kitchen. Breakfast is the usual bread and jam.
Nice common areas, good kichen. The upstairs bathroom leaks and have created a big hole in the ceiling, nothing is being done about it, so it will get bigger and bigger, it makes for a bad wellcome specialy when water hits you in the face right when you come in.
Great vibe!!! muchissimas gracias Ekeko!!!

very familiar atmosphere, lovely staff. perfect place to get to know people! really liked my stay there :)
The hostel is located in a safe area, close to a large supermarket and the main road where you can catch buses and combi to downtown or to other areas of the city. Easy walk to Miraflores and for those who enjoy walking in Barranco also, most fashionable beach resort! The breakfast is good and the staff excellent and competent ... Lima is a great and beautiful city. Very recommended!
The staff were all so helpful and welcoming. Will recommend to friends just on the basis of the great advice we received. Good location, pleasant atmosphere. Was a little disappointed with the quality of the showers (lack of any hot water).
Very nice hostel in a big city with not much to do. Staff are super friendly and will help you with anything. Recommend!
I really enjoyed the time here. It was mostly because of the people I shared the hostel with, but also the staff was really helpful and welcoming. Great atmosphere in generall
It was fantastic! staff, break fast, location all the things are perfect. It was not crowd really peaceful. higly recommend.
The staff was amazing and very thorough when speaking to us.
The staff was definitely the highlight. The main reception guy was so super. He speaks tons of languages and is always interested about learning new ones and interacting with the guests. They have tons of movies, good chill space and lots of info.
The staff here are really great. Very helpful and friendly. We stayed in two different rooms, the standard twin with shared bathroom and the double with private bathroom. I do not recommend the twin because it very small and the beds aren't comfortable, also the shared bathroom isn't very clean. On the other hand the double bedroom was much better for only bit more money...I definitely recommend getting a room with private bathroom. Breakfast is basic and security is good.
