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.

It's a party hostel. Great bar at the top of the building. Bathroom in each of the bedrooms. Bathroom did smell slightly odd, but useable. Close to the main tourist area. Wifi hit and miss. Can get noisy around 2am around stairwell as everyone files out of upstairs to clubs. Popular with 23-24yrs post military service from a certain country (you'll understand if stayed in a hostel with them).

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!

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.

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

Location is a little hectic but nice having Kennedy park close as a reference point. It's just far from great things to see and do around lima. Wifi worked well (even in the dorms!) hot clean showers, comfortable beds. It's great having breakfast available until 12 if you plan to stay up late! It is loud close to the terrace but it's full of people having fun so hard to complain.

Listen up! If you want to meet people, have a great time, eat great well priced food, sleep in a comfy bed (with two pillows!), and lock your electronics in a cubby to charge than this is the place for you! Pruno and the other staff are a blast! The atmosphere is super social and fun but also very secure. Ps. Like all of lima its load at night, bring ear plugs. I think the bigger dorms are also warmer so a medium dorm is the way to go in my opinion.

Really enjoyed the 2 nights I spent here. The room was clean, the atmosphere on the patio was always awesome, and the staff were great. I'd definitely go back!

It is an excellent place for young backpackers, cheap, nice and complete... Everything was good, specially the atmosphere, but during the night, my room D was really hot.

It's a great hostel that has a lot going on. There's definitely a strong drinking atmosphere throughout the day, so if you're not planning on being drunk all the time, it might not be the best. I was super tired one night and went to sleep early, but people came into the room drunk, turned the light on, and was being very loud despite knowing that people were sleeping in the room. Upstairs, there's always a party. It's also very difficult to sleep because the hostel is located on the main street
