Location is amazing as it is close to the airport. If you have an early flight, this is the best hostel to stay at as you don't want to risk being stuck in Lima traffic. The only downside is that water isn't really hot, more like lukewarm.
Staff were brilliant and really went out of their way to help - we were delayed 24 hours & they let us just move our booking rather than let us loose our deposit. Location was great for us as we wanted to be right next to the airport for an early flight the next day. Nothing else near the hostel though so wouldn't recommend staying there for anything other than a airport stop.
Staff went above and beyond to accomodate us, even as far as keeping something safe for us while we were gone for 5 days. It was VERY close to the airport, very easy, and very kind staff! Wonderful breakfast! Wonderful facilities! Wonderful prices! Thanks so much for an amazing experience!!!!!!
This place is great if you need to be near the airport. Otherwise, you're pretty far away from everything else in the city, so it's not ideal. Basic place, but clean and comfortable beds. They do charge the crazy price of 25 soles to take you two minutes across the street in a taxi to the airport. Seems a bit much.
Great Breakfast and Airport Transfer 2 Hours After Midnight!

Not located in the best area by any means and is difficult for taxis to find who are not familiar with Callao area. But it is close to the airport and the hostel offers rides every 20 minutes, so sign up when you arrive. Facilities are nice and basic. The shower i had in my room wasnt too great so i opted to shower in my friends room.
This place is good for a layover in Lima. I opted for the pickup service they offer and it made it really easy after my long day of flights and for my early flight the next morning. If you book a place more in the heart of Lima or Miraflores it is about a 30 min taxi ride depending on traffic. If you get in late and have an early flight the next morning this is your place.
Perfect to stay close to the airport for early flights.
Handily located for Lima airport. Surrounding area is horrible, but not particularly unsafe,though whether I'd walk to the airport comfort ably on my own late at night is doubtful. Nice guests and staff,would enjoy a longer period here.
Staff is friendly. Location is good if you're looking for something close to the airport (5' by taxi / 20' walk). The building is old but everything is quite clean. Big kitchen and common areas. Dorm is spacious and clean. They even give you a towel. It would be nice if they started breakfast a bit earlier... if you have an early flight you'll miss it.
Close to the airport and convenient if you're staying in Lima just overnight. Comfortable beds and standard hostel breakfast. Outlets and wifi in rooms. Only major downside for an airport hostel was that the showers were tepid at best.
Perfect for a short layover between Lima to Cusco. The shuttle is great and the bed is really comfy. About 15 minutes away from the airport.
I've been there twice - both times I used Lima Airport. It's the perfect place for your first or last night in Lima. There's literally nothing to do around unless you catch a bus/pricey taxi. The breakfast was really good and it was 1 sole to get the bus/van to the airport in the morning we left (ask them this tip!).
I have recently stayed here on 3 individual nights, each as a quick stop off near the airport to fly elsewhere in Peru. The staff are friendly and speak good English. The breakfast is included and is adequate enough to start your day. The rooms and bathrooms are basic but you should expect no more in a budget backpacker hostel. It is, however, a bit of a trek away from anything worth seeing in Lima so if you're planning to see some of Lima itself then you'll want to stay somewhere more central.
It is a perfect solution if you need a hostel near to the airport. Great breakfast, very supportive staff. Value for money at a very high level.
To have more flexible / longer breakfast times would be good. 7.30-9am is very short timetime, but there was coffee left on the reception desk for early risers / leavers, so that was good.

This hostel is located close to the airport which is convenient but I warn you, dont walk it. While during the day, it is not entirely sketchy, it is deserted and dangerous at night. I highly recommend getting there by taxi however, getting a trust worthy taxi is an entirely different issue because of the reputation of local taxi services in Lima. Try to have the hostel send you a taxi. Dennis, who was our driver, was very friendly. Other amenities in the hostel were satisfactory.
We used the hostel just for a night after arriving in Lima and before flying on to Cusco. For that purpose the hotel is excellent. We booked a pickup service from the airport and were also brought back to the airport. The driver was nice and friendly and everything worked out well. We had a two bed dorm with bathroom. The room was plain and clean and the bathroom was clean. The hot shower was also working. Breakfast was served with fresh fruits, which is also a bonus.
