We got two kinds of room for our group. The private room was nice except for the shower that didn't work very well. I had to stop my shower in the middle. The dorm wasn't good. It's window faced the main street which was as loud as it could be. The shared bathroom was dirty. In the morning I was sleeping close to the bathroom door so it was very annoying to have the door slammed every 5 minutes since 7am. The good thing about it was definitely the location right in the middle of Miraflores dist
I arrived very late and left very early! But it looked like a cute place and the front desk staff was so friendly! He even checked up on me to make sure I was awake to catch my bus!
Wonderful place with a nice staff. I couldn't stay because despite the no smoking signs everywhere, the staff and guests smoked in all public places: rooms, bathrooms, tv room, everywhere. If you don't smoke, don't stay here.

I stayed in a private room with my girlfriend. It was a nice place especially considering the cost. They upgraded my room for free because there was a scheduling mixup so that was dope. Staff is friendly and helpful, place is clean, private bathroom is always nice.
Great location! Great staff!
Bathroom was pretty cramped between stalls, showers, and sinks. Very little privacy. Only one light in room. Staff was nice and helpful, and the breakfast voucher was a nice inclusion.
Hostelworld email you the wrong address for the hostel you stay in as there are 3 in miraflores! Advise you to contact the hostel first via email and ask them which one you are staying in. Otherwise the hostel is good, NEEDS better internet connection with more routers (this is Lima) and also maybe doors for the TV room...makes it hard when the bar music overpowers the TV. Also Kitchen fridge does not work. But Billy who works there is great!!'
Although I told them I would arrive late, the chick in charge just wouldnt wake up to open the door despite repeated ringing. It was 3 am on Saturday night. Rest of the staff really nice, I heard they may kick her out.
The shower and room was average, the bed light in our room didn't even plug in!! (The plug didn't match the outlet, pretty ridiculous). One staff member was very friendly and helpful, the other couldn't be bothered to answer questions, was very short with us. It was very loud with partying people coming in until 4am, the walls were paper thin. The location was great, nice and spacious common rooms. No internet signal in our room. Overall, unimpressed. Oh, and the bed sheets looked dirty.
Friendly staffs. Good location. Quiet place to rest. A guy at the reception helped me to catch a taxi on the street. Moved to this hostel from another one with crazy people, loud music all night long.. I liked this place. I would love to recommend this hostel to someone who avoid party hostel(full with people smoking weeds, drinking in the room and talking and laughing loudly no matter what other people say). Good value for money. Gracias!
We arrived in Lima and spent one night in a private bedroom in this hostel. It was very clean and quiet and they have a cute cat that lives there. Would definitely recommend as a great option in Miraflores.
The room was basic and the window couldn't close so the room was really cold. We wanted to cook but there was no pan in the kitchen?! But it was nice to sit in the couches in the lounge and look at the Kennedy park.
We were staying in a secondary location for this hostel so had to walk our bags over the street. This meant our communal areas were really quiet. Breakfast was odd- we had vouchers to go to two different restaurants, depending on the time we got up but the breakfast was the same in both- pretty mediocre. The room itself wasn't massively clean, although the shared bathrooms were good.
One of the best hostels I have stayed on my whole trip, mostly due to the staff!
We were disappointed by this hostel. All started with the airport pick up, booked in advance but it did not come. So we called the hostel twice and and were told to wait at the airport. After 2 hours of waiting still no driver, so we took a green cab in the end. As a compensation we got the first night for free. Another point was the cleanliness. The bathrooms weren´t clean and the shower was leaking so the whole bathroom was under water for the whole day. Not talking about the cockroach...
This hostel was very cold, and humid inside the rooms. Loud at night from all the street noise. I don't recommend it to anyone .

Our room shared a very thin wall with the hostel's bar, which played loud music well into the evening hours. Fair enough, but it would be nice if that information was more clear before booking, so people who are looking for a quieter atmosphere will know what they're getting into.
