Great staff, great location... Fun but still quiet enough to get some rest if that's your thing. With the rooftop it's an even better space than the one in Cusco
A hostel in a great location however was completely let down by the staff. On a number of occasions I was at reception and whilst being dealt with the staff would get distracted, start speaking to someone else and the girl who did my check out and taxi booking was completely incompetent, trying to charge me twice. The kitchen is also currently out of use, something they should let guests know prior to booking. I'd heard good things this hostel but it was really let down by the staff.
Pros: Safe, really nice and helpful staff, lots of activities, fun bar upstairs, free simple breakfast and tea/coffee, really comfortable beds, outlets in the lockers, airport transfer, just a really great place Cons: not allowed to bring in own alcohol
Awesome set up, my friend was slipped a drug at Gotica and they were VERY helpful and very concerned. Made sure everyone was okay. Very clean and big!
Clean hostel, good breakfast, good location and comfortable bed! Kitchen was out of order tho!
This was my first hostel experience in a long time and I couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised! Amazing location, friendly and helpful staff as well as great atmosphere :) I would recommend to anyone visiting Lima

Great location, helpful staff, nice roof terrace, always clean, secure lockers with sockets inside, ping pong table, nice food. Breakfast a bit simple and the music sometimes turned up so loud the speaker crackled, but quiet in the dorms. Overall I would recommend this hostel to anyone thinking to stay in lima.
This is a great hostel in one of the best locations your going to find! Right in the heart of Miraflores surrounded by hundreds of great bars and restaraunts! Nice comfortable beds in spacious rooms mean it doesn't matter if your in a 6 bed dorm or a 12 bed dorm it's just as good. Lima is an amazing city and this is an amazing hostel right in the heart of it. Spend as much time as you can here!
Excellent hostel right in the centre of Miraflores! Great atmosphere and good bartenders! Comfortable beds and good showers! Decent food at restaurant! Thought the reception staff were very incompetent. Experienced multiple incidents where information was not conveyed correctly and their explanations week confusing!
Great hostel! Quiet and clean rooms and at the same time there is a party atmosphere at the rooftop and bar
Great location in Miraflores. Lovely rooftop terrace and nice social area. Was offered breakfast when i arrived very early which was nice. Decent bathrooms with hot water and comfy dorm. No kitchen though.
Excellent hostel in Lima! Right on Parque Kennedy, close to all bars and restaurants of Miraflores! One of the cleanest hostels I have stayed at. The rooftop terrace is awesome and the facilities great. There is even a restaurant in the hostel that does amazing food for good prices and a bar with happy hours a few times in a day!
I really enjoyed my stay here. It was a very central location in a safe neighbourhood, the food at the bar was amazing and the overall atmosphere was excellent.
Best thing about this hostel is the rooftopterrace and the location! Very close to everything and a safe area. The hostel is very clean and has supercomfortable beds. BUT it says that theres a comunal kitchen but its closed for 1,5 month starting from April 4, and it didnt say this on the website or anything which was a big dissapointment since I chose this hostel mostly because they were supposed to have a kitchen. Other than that its good!
Good place, friendly, helpful staff, and a good location, all at a reasonable price. Id stay there again.
The taxi arrangement made my arrival dramatically easier. The beds are comfortable and clean. The bathrooms are clean enough. Cleaned regularly. They started construction at 7 am on a Saturday. The internet only works well in the common areas, and it's spotty even there. The coffee at breakfast was delicious but they offer only simple bread and jam butter. You can buy more from them very cheaply. Staff is helpful. The bar has delicious mayacura sour.
Best hostel I have stayed at in South America, fantastic location right at the heart of Miraflores ! Great atmosphere, clean dorms, and the staff are super friendly ! Girl at reception even offered to change all my thousands of coins that I had accumulated into notes which was very helpful !
First time traveling by myself. I stayed in a 12 person dorm for 5 nights and made friends within minutes. Beds were made daily and the food at the hostel was average but very convenient when drunk or hungover. 10 minute walk away from the beach and to good nightlife and restaurants. Hostel was very young when I got there so be sure to bring a sleeping mask and ear plugs if you're trying to get sleep. Daily events at the hostel were great for sight seeing and meeting people. I will stay again!!

Walking tour was a complete waste of time. Didn't learn one thing about Lima from the guide. The Catacombs were interesting but we had a proper guide for that. Good hostel, although they made it difficult for my friends to visit the bar to have one drink.
too big!! not my type of hostel, commercially run, all the services you would expect,but wifi was slow due to the amount of people in hostel, i prefer smaller hostels where you can interact with people better
