Great hostel, has everything you need and really funky with a great bar.
We loved this hostel! The food and drinks were delicious (unless Freddie made them...just kidding). The staff was friendly and helpful, especially Sebastian! He was the BEST, and went out of his way to make us dinner after we missed it and the kitchen had already closed. Hands down, sweetest guy ever, and a great bartender, too! Shane was a lot of fun, too. He was nice enough to take us out our first night in Lima, after a terrible start to the night. Thanks to everyone there for so much fun!
Very organised and eventful hostel. The most comfortable beds ever! My room was right next to the reception, so I even got wifi from my room. The bar is on the roof top, so I didn't even hear much noise at all. Will stay here again for sure.
If party is your mid name, there is always something going on here. Staffed bar upstairs. Surf. BBQ. Anything goes. Good price in middle of city. Recommend for fun loving younger people.
Perfect for spending a few days in Lima. Not far from the water in Miraflores and very easy to catch a bus to downtown Lima (staff helped with bus card and directions). Close by to many local and western restaurants. Rooftop terrace area is nice and a good range of food available from the bar.
Very social place, clean facilities, always something going on at the bar at night. Great location at the heart of Miraflores, highly recommended!
Good hostel when it comes to security, location, beds and facilities. The staff was a little disappointing though; we did not get the service as we had in the Pariwana hostel in Arequipa.
Very well located hostel in the centre of Miraflores, which is definitely the location to stay while in Lima. Facilities were excellent and staff very friendly. Food a little expensive and drinks are not that cheap either. Showers were warm but could have done with being slightly hotter. Unfortunately our nearest bathroom smelt a lot like cigarette smoke which was a tad offputting. However, we had a great stay here and would definitely return to this hostel if we came back to Lima.
Fantastic hostel. I will certainly return when I am back in Lima.
This hostel was great. The rooms were clean and secure, the bar on the roof was awesome and the staff were super friendly and helpful.
This was a great hostel with a very helpful staff.
Great Hostel. Friendly Staff. You can walk every place in Marflors and walk to the "metro" bus station. Their lockers have plug-in. You can charge the laptop or camera in locker. Great.
There was some variation in the rooms - #1 had too many beds in it - cramped, especially because there were some very messy people staying there. I ended up switching to #2 which was lovely and just right. Nice atmosphere, fun activities, helpful staff... let me change beds/rooms immediately when I woke up covered in bites (jury's out on if they were from the hostel or if they were definitely bed bugs).
great hostel. great staff. it's hard to see it from street level because the majority of the hostel is on the 2nd and 3rd floors. my only complaint about this hostel is that there is one women's bathroom and one men's bathroom...and if you're staying at a room at the other end of the hostel, you have to go all the way across to use the facilities. also the noise would be a bit much for an unseasoned hostel patron. make sure to bring your earplugs and eyemasks!
Nice bar and makes good breakfast! Convenient location. WiFi signal was a bit lousy. For Lima stay recommend.
Friendly and helpful staff. Installation well kept and clean. Needs to improve on book exchange library as there were very limited books for exchange (I donated my book).

It's an awesome hostel, you can meet lots of really nice people pretty easy, people from the staff are really really nice and they are always happy. Parties are pretty good, I'll definitely recommend this hostel!
Very good hostal. We were on the 10 bed room and it was nice. The lockers have plugs inside so you don´t have to worry about your stuff while charging.
