An awesome hostel in the quiet part of Miraflores. I had an amazing time at Ekeko. It's a good hostel in terms of location, value and facilities but what really makes it different from other places is the VIBE. The place has more of a big shared house feel to it. Great staffs such as Leo, David, Estel and cool guests. Very friendly, helpful, and chill. I stayed there 5 nights and met a bunch of fun guys, and we hung out quite a bit. Leo took us out and we had such a fun. Highly recommended.

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
