The beds are comfortable but loose. So be careful if you are in the lower bed - the heavy wooden sticks might fall down on you. When informing the staff they explain that they often check and fix the beds? I would recommend that they bought some new ones. My friend had her money stolen from her purse inside our room while we were either asleep or having breakfast. Hot showers and ok wifi. Definitely the worst loki hostel (compared to del mar and la paz).
The staff was nice, bar a nice touch, but my BIGGEST complaint is that half my toiletries were either stolen or trashed by staff; while I put some things in a locker (did not lock, my fault), I left some items out. When I came back that day, the entire room had been cleaned, my locker was emptied, and only half my toiletries were still there. Oh and my toothbrush was in the reception. I know you have to clean, but the fact you chose what to throw away indicates either carelessness or theft.
Not a fantastic hostel, or a bad hostel. If you don't like having a bar in your hostel, drunk people coming in your room late, and noise from the bar, I don't recommend this place. Otherwise, it is decent, clean, helpful day staff, and well located in Lima.
I really enjoyed the vibe at both Loki hostels (Lima and Cusco), especially Cusco. It's really layed back, which is nice to relax, or have an early day party with friends/buddies. The staff was absolutely phenomenal, made me feel at home. Music was great, I don't even hear that kind of music where I'm from, and it brought me back to my teens, also reminded me what kind music I really like. Overall, awesome time!!

I loved staying here in Lima, the staff was amazing. I made a lot of friends, great atmosphere, everyone was really nice. Made me feel comfortable as a solo traveler.
Great smoking terrace upstairs. The bar downstairs was chill and the staff is friendly, on Thursdays they take you to the biggest club in Lima which was super cool. Far from central Lima and the bar district, but still a cute neighborhood. Would definitely recommend this hostel.
We really enjoyed our stay at Loki and it is the best hostel to come to if you want to party in Lima, theres not a lot of sights so it is a good idea. However, we were really disappointed with the staff and found the staff at the desk rude, unfriendly and unhelpful. They do not allow you to extend your stay in advance as they cant be bothered to go through existing reservations and reserve you a bed.
Located in a good area, comfortable beds, and some of the staff are very helpful. However, the place could be cleaner, some staff seemed to not care, and the WiFi was both unreliable and weak, with the computers frequently out of use. Definite party place.
Nice hostel, in a nice area, which is however kinda far from everything! But good nightlight reccomendations!
This was a total party hostel, which wasn't what I was looking for at all. Also, it was dark and dingy. The bathrooms were very disgusting and the water shut off while I was taking a shower and was off for five hours. I had to brush my teeth at a fast food place nearby. The staff was helpful but not super friendly. The only upsides to this place was the security (you have to get buzzed into two doors) and the food from the kitchen was amazing.
