The hostel is very close to the airport which makes it the perfect hostel when you only spend one night to continue the next day. If you want to see the city, this hostel is not your best option, since it takes you halve an hour to go to the centre and even more to go to Mira Flores.

I didnt like so much this place. The guy who recieved me in airport wasnt very agreeable and at 3 a.m. (when I had a flight), nobody came to drive to the airport )but I asked to drive me there, but everybody were sleaping). I should to make a big noise to wake up somebody... Just because of this, in 15 minutes arrived the boy who drived me to the airport. The guy from reception was niec, but he didnt give me the change (3 dollars, but....)

We booked this hostel solely for it's proximity to the airport since we got in to Lima late and had an early morning flight the next day to Cuzco. This is it's only redeeming quality, otherwise the hostel was very unappealing, tiny tiny rooms and all four of us could barely get to sleep due to dirt/allergens in the room - we were all up coughing/sniffling. Very small/squeezed space. Also would not feel safe in the neighbourhood. I almost wish we'd slept in the airport instead.

Dear Maria Langat We spend much time cleaning hard our rooms. We’re so sorry you suffer allergie. As you say we’re very close to the airport that’s why customers prefer us. We hope to see you again Best Regards, Hostal Las Fresas


Close to airport, but impossible to find taxi that would take you straight to hostel! "Taxi-mafia" claimed it was impossible (forbidden) to take the shortest route to hostel, but said we had to take a loong detour, while trying to talk us into changing hostels to one where he obviously received commission. Taxi driver: "Las Fresas is a bad place in a very dangerous area" and blablabla... We insisted on going to Fresas but ended up paying 39 soles=expensive! Try arrange pick-up before arrival!

Dear Sara Floden, We feel sad you lived this situation. It is always better to arrange a taxi with us, besides we have low cost taxi service from and to the airport. We hope to see you soon in our lodging! Best Regards, Hostal Las Fresas
