While in many hostels in Peru staff speak no English, David at Ekeko Hostel speaks not only fluent English, but also French and German!! Got great hints from him (e.g. take a bus to the city center for 1,2 S/.)! Full kitchen, fridge... but would have expected towels being provided for that price (at least for private rooms) .

I was greeted with a smile and immediately felt welcome. Ekeko is old but clean. Large kitchen, dining area and living space with TV and Wifi is a bonus. I was able to get a single room, which can be difficult to find. The price was decent. The bathroom beside my room was tiny and I wasn't so sure about that but I had no problem having a warm shower. My room was small with a tiny window up high so did not impress at first sight but It became a cozy retreat. The staff is fantastic!

The tiles in the toilet was broken. The balcony door couldnt be locked and the glass in the door was also broken so we couldnt properly lock the balcony door. It felt unsafe. The breakfast was very very poor. Only jam and bread.

David is a very warm and nice guy! Always smiley, kind and very helpful. Thanks a lot David, as well as the argentinian fellow at front desk, very kind too! The hostel has an excellent location, very nice neighborhood, and the staff is very nice. Has a quiet hippy-style atmosphere, but it needs some improvements like a better kitchen, better lockers, and needs a better cleaning service. The bed was average. This place can be better that what it is now.

what i can say , it was awesome ! the reception was really friendly and helpful , the quality of the bed was comfortable for the price and to finish a peaceful ambiance. the location was good because it was just 10 min from kennedy park so it s close and not noisy in the same time. I recommende it
