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.


This hostel is just fine...nothing really special, decent location near Miraflores (15 min walk) but only a 30 minute bus to the centre of town. It is clean and secure and reasonably cheap but just doesnt offer anything special, so depends what you want really!


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.


Modest rooms but all you need for a few days in lima Big kitchen


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.
