A nice place to stay, the beds were comfy, WiFi if good (worked in my room) however its a bit on the pricey side. They did have a kitchen which I appreciated and the people staying there were lovely!


The staff were very helpful in getting me to and from the airport - they even set up a taxi ride for me to get to the airport at 3:30AM. The dorm room was comfortable, but we couldn't lock the dorm door - there were lockers for us to put our things in, but we did have an incident where a guy wandered in and had to be pointed in the other direction. If there was a way to provide dorm keys, I think that would be beneficial. Otherwise, good location in Miraflores, the coast is a quick 15 min walk.


This is My second time staying here and I always have a great experience. Great value for the money and can't beat the location. Bathrooms are clean and fresh sheets when u arrive. Kinda loud but just bring ear plugs and you will be fine.


Great bar area and good location. Nice food options and drink deals too although we never got our free shots! Theyve also got good connections if youre looking for things to do in Lima.


Nice place to stay after a long flight. Staff were very welcoming and helpful. Double Room was nice and clean with a small balcony. This hostel is above an Irish pub and below its own bar making this place noisy but has a great atmosphere.


Great location, great bar, great hostel - second time staying in Lima and this hostel was by far the best


Good, solid hostel. Comfy beds, hot showers, can't complain at all!


A nice little hostel with a roof terrace which was very nice in the sun. The breakfast was standard but you had the option to purchase additional items. There wasn't much of an atmosphere when we were here. The rooms are very basic but adequate.


No complaints. I stayed at a few different hostels in Lima, and this was the best one.


Loved this place! The location was great, staff was very friendly and the people who worked at the bar are some of the nicest folks I've had the pleasure of meeting. Rooms were nice and clean with very spacious lockers, it really made me wish I had more time there.


Some unhelpful staff and creepy local men at the bar


Super comfy beds, wider than the average and great lockers with a power point inside to charge your phone safely. The upstairs bar is amazing. The kitchen is a bit small and not very well equipped, it would be better to find cheap food to eat out instead. The staff are super helpful and welcoming. Great hostel!!


Really liked Kokopelli, the staff were super friendly and helpful. The rooftop terrace was awesome to eat breakfast and there was always something going off at nighttime. If you're not into partying, then maybe it wouldn't be for you, but it wasn't overbearing. Really close to the centre of Miraflores, and a ten minute walk to the beach!


Good: The central , safe location Bad: Everything else! The rooms are sandwiched between a bar on the roof and bars at street level so it's like trying to sleep in a banging club at night. And people from the bar upstairs use the shared bathrooms on the bedroom floors and hang around the corridors, so it feels unsafe and really dirty. Both toilets blocked and overflowing on Friday night. Even trying to sleep with headphones didn't block out the noise!


The hostel is located in a very good place in Miraflores but it is extremely noisy. They have a bar up stares and there is absolutely no isolation. So, if you are looking for a quite place, it is not your choice. Also, the bathrooms and showers were pretty dirty and it was disgusting to have showers there. Breakfast was poor and they charged you for a piece of fruit or 2 pieces of cheese ( which we thought was kind of lame).


A little expensive, but great hostel

The Para Trike tour and Islas Palomino swimming with Sea Lions were sooooooooo worth the money!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Book two nights but stayed only one. If your don't have your peruvian immigration card they charge you an extra 18%?? Loud hostel with a busy bar right underneath you definitely not a chill hostel, some staff was nice others not as much. Location is decent if you don't mind walking a couple blocks to Kennedy park. Expected a bit better

Hola, sorry that we couldn't live up to your expectations, hopefully in the future we can give you a better experience. Just for the record though, on our profile there is a clause that mentions the 18% sales tax which is a peruvian law that applies for foreigners with more than 60 days in the country and for us to proof this we need the TAM card. Since we are 100% formal and we pay all our taxes we can't avoid this, which other hostels are able too by not paying taxes. Cheers


Nice play to stay if you wanna meet people. Private rooms are above a bar, which usually continue to 3:30 in the morning. If you are planning to have a good rest, dont go to this hostel. If you wanna party, have a good time with other people and have fun, go here.
