This is a great place to stay! Nice and calm neighborhood, lovely double room (it has TV), hot shower for real, well equipped kitchen and cozy common areas. There is no bar, however the atmosphere is good to meet another travellers and the staff is very friendly. We recommend this place to chill out after travelling for several days or weeks.


The staff that work there were extremely nice and helpful. We arrived at the hostel off the night bus at 6am and they allowed us to check into the room. There's a modest kitchen to cook in and a simple continental breakfast included. I would definitely recommend staying here.


The staff is very nice. It felt as a warm welcome to Peru. The hostal is a very nice place to meet people. The room was good enough but perhaps some plastering would also make it look nice. The owner offered to call him if anything would happen on our trip through Peru. He said he has contacts and people all over Peru. Luckily we did not need this service but it felt really good to have someone who is willing to help. Tho hostal is 15-20 mins walking to the restaurant area, but there is one near


People here are very nice! Location is close to Huaca Pyramid, 20mins walk to the center.


Especially staff is so kind,you can know everything you want.Hostel atmosphere is so nice.easy to chill out.if you want to stay new town,here is a good choice.Arigatou!


Liked this mid-size BP very much. Nice staff and good vibe in the common areas. Prices are pretty good. Stayed here 2 times. 1 double bed room and one basic twin room. Both rooms were clean and spacious. The only downside - both times there was no hot water. Other than that nice place - recommended


Booked a single room which was at the back of the complex with adjacent bathroom I effectively had to myself. The bathroom could have been cleaner and the shower drips consistently which you tend to notice during the night when you are adjusting to a new time zone with broken sleep. Staff were friendly enough but breakfast could be served earlier than 8.30am. I had to miss it to get to the bus station in time.


All staff are extremely helpful and go out of their ways to help you with anything you need


Breakfast is really basic I had a private room and stayed for 3 nights; room was not cleaned during my stay... Good taxi service to/from airport


Nice enough hostel a little far from Miraflores but very close to ruins. Staff friendly and chatty. Basic breakfast. Kitchen facilities also basic but good enough to prepare something simple. Mattress not very comfortable and pillow like a pancake. Showers not the best - not much pressure and either very hot or cold. Lockers to store valuables in kitchen area.


Great helpful staff, a little far from the center of miraflores but also much more quiet because a little far from the center. I had the single room and considering the price its a great value.


This is a great hostel with REALLY friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are good and clean and the hostel is in a really nice area.


The staff were helpful but I have to say David was incredible. We arrived in Lima nervous tourists and he answered very question we threw at him. He showed genuine interest in us and made our stay in Lima what it was. All praise must go to him for our stay. Cleanliness was excellent as to was security.


Cristian went out of his way to help people with their planning. The rest of the staff was also very helpful. Thank you for making my trip memorable!! I'll be back ;)


We really liked Ekeko, and the host Davi was very, very sweet. We did find the hostel a little bit disorganized, though, like the breakfast for example. We had to search for the bread and the butter in the kitchen and there was nothing to drink. We would recomend it, though, the rooms are very cool.

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.
