I loved the place, nice, cozy and clean with a perfect location close to the beach and to the main atractions in Miraflores... The rooms are perfectly designed to make you feel comfortable, there are lockers for everyone, lamps and outlets in every bed and enough space in the rooms to put your luggage. The beds are also very confortable. The colorful backyard were my favorite place to enjoy the free breakfast in the morning. The boys working here are so helpful and very friendly. Thanks.


The man who greeted us when we arrived was not very friendly or talkative at first, but was a little nicer later. Other than that, it was a pleasant stay and it's a very nice place.


My boyfriend and I stayed here for 6 nights and it was just what we needed after a long transit. We arrived in Lima at 11pm and our taxi driver was promptly waiting for us as organised through the hostel. We stayed in a 6 bed dorm, the room was spacious and the beds comfy. The toilet and shower facilities were great as was the free brekky. The staff were always happy to help and Pisco the dog was awesome. I highly recommend staying here!!


Friendly an helpful staff, very clean and a super breakfast!!! All in all a fantastic Hostel!!!


We had a really good time there. It is very clean and it is a little oasis in the middle of this big city. We loved to had Pisco the dog always around, it is an amazing dog! :)


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.


Unfortunately this hostel is one of the worst I have stayed at. The staff were very unfriendly towards us from the moment we arrived. They seemed annoyed that we were there and that we asked questions about the area. Our room wasn't ready until almost 330pm when we were told it would be ready by 1pm. We dropped our bags off in storage in the morning and asked if she could recommend a place for breakfast and we were sarcastically answered with "There are plenty of fast-food places nearby"


Nice place & safe with nice breakfast but very slow internet and twice the water has been cut off during our stay. The bad part of the hostel is the staff. Only 1 guy and 1 girl were nice and friendly. The others ones made us inconfortable and was even not polite. U also have to know that there is a dog inside the hotel who goes everywhere...If allergies u have to be aware of that.


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


Excellent. I couldn't leave. I quite miss this place, to be honest. Great staff, good everything. Homemade peanut butter? Bonus. Highly recommended.


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.
