The staff is very friendly, they have a lot of information. The ambience is nice, it is clean, it is like your house. Television, terrace outside, big kitchen, free towels. Good internet. The breakfast is okay. The location is in Mirafloras, very save and a quiet neighberhood. 20 minutes walking to the beach. 1 block walking to the bus, in Avenida Arequipa , which goes to the centre of Lima. And next to the centre archeological Huaca Pucllana.


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!.


Very friendly and helpful staff! One of them speaks Spanish, English, (good) German and some French. Especially helpful if you find yourself in South America without decent Spanish skills ;) Hostel is at a good and quiet location in Miraflores. Breakfast is basic bread, butter, marmelade and instant coffee/tee. Showers use an electic water heater attached to the shower head like in many hostels.

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!


stayed just one night, wish it was more, the hostel was nice ! staff friendly !


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!
