Genuinely lovely staff! Don't stay anywhere else in Barranco!
The Kaminu hostel itself seemed nice, however I was told that I would be staying at an apartment 15 minutes walk away, in a residential area. It was very basic but not terrible, however for $50 per night I would have liked to have stayed in the centre of Barranco.

The showers were hot, the location was in a beautiful neighborhood, and the general atmosphere of the hostel was pleasant. However one staff member was overly flirtatious, the loud nearby clubs made it it difficult to sleep and the sheets on the bed were a bit crusty.
I stayed a few days at Kaminu Hostel and we had overall a very pleasant stay. Rafa was always ni e to us and helped when we needed him! The hostel as a nice terrace which could be a little nicer used but its ok to hang out.
