This is a great Hostel!! But you need to like dogs...if you have a problem with that it's better not to stay here.


beautiful hostel, quite location. plenty of locker space. Novelty breakfast, warm showers. Pisco the Peruvian puppy the star of the show


I liked this hostel. It was very beautiful there, but the reason I didn't give it an excellent review is because the hot water is never got really hot. Also there was a dog there "healing dog" hostel, and it was playful, but sometimes a little aggressive. It almost bit my boyfriend. Other than that great beds very clean. Nice location.


Very chilled atmosphere and nicely decorated.


My wife and I enjoyed our one night stay here. The house dog, a Peruvian Hairless, is very friendly and cool to see if you haven't seen the breed. The atmosphere was laid back and bohemian and the facilities were good. The room was nice as well. They let us use the house bus pass so we didn't have to buy one ourselves which was nice. The location is very good, being close to the Kennedy Plaze and the ocean.


It's a very small hostel, I missed a bar or something where people could hangout. It is quite far from the main plaza. Very clean. Rooms were small, not a good value of money.


Very relaxed atmosphere and nice people working at reception! No party hostel. Pisco the dog is the star of the hostel...


Very nice hostel, good vibe, neat layout, very helpful and friendly staff and the best kitchen facilties i have used in a hostal in recent times. A definate stop if i were to return to Lima.


This hostel is in a good location just a few blocks from Kennedy park and the breakfast is good. The let downs are the hostel dog which just made everything smell of dog and one staff member is particularly creepy whilst others who stayed in my dorm were very loud. The dog went to the toilet in the living area and it was left for way too long - a girl almost run her suitcase over it! I just didn't feel comfortable here


Very cozy,wifi and breakfast were good.In dorm downstairs there was some smell of humidity but not bad.Upstairs private was fine!


great atmosphere, beautiful building and a great sense of details and style, very nice decoration of the rooms and common ares, breakfast in small cotton bags, books, very nice small courtyard, good guests in all ages, not a party hostel, more a mix between family hotel+hostel which is very good.


Very nice hostal with good atmosphere. I liked the different social areas. Stuff was nice and helpful, sometimes it seemed they are all living there because have always been there. DIY-breakfast - you get a bag in the morning and have to prepare your breakfast. Due to the tiny kitchen at rush hour the kitchen was overloaded with people. Nice dorm rooms with big lockers and enough space for the backbags. Although during the night the air was very dry.


Great place, good location, but we didn't get the room we booked as they had not checked it yet, wanted a double and they gave us a twin :/


The staff was excellent. Found me a bed because I had to stay one more bed. Great info given. Spoke English.


Really nice, relaxed hostel. Close to the seafront and central Miraflores. Lovely breakfast too and all for a great price!


GOOD: Very nice breakfast and kitchen to use if sb wants to. BAD: The second day Asiatic looking lady in the reception was very beautiful and very unhelpful and not nice. In e-mail or description they offer airport pick up for 50 soles and they say its normal price. It might be normal price for hostel pick up but remember that in Peru almost everyone tries to rip you off. NORMAL PRICE FROM AIRPORT TO HOSTEL IS AROUND 25 SOLES. JUST GO OUTSIDE THE AIRPORT. THEY TRY TO SCARE YOU THATS DANGEROU

Thanks for your comments. We are so sorry for the inconvenients. We have already changed the taxi driver.


Frühstück könnte etwas besser sein, sonst alles super!


A decent choice of accommodation in Lima. They supply oranges to squeeze for breakfast, along with cereals, bread rolls peanut butter & jam. Lovely staff.
