It was very cheap, had working wifi, and was close to the airport. Don't expect anything else. The pillows were terrible. Used cigarette made the whole bedroom smell, staff did their job but didn't look happy, car pickup from airport was too expensive etc etc.

If you're staying here and continuing onto Cusco this is a perfect place to stay just for the night. Wouldn't recommend otherwise. I had sort of an awkward stay when the electricity in the entire hostel went out for the night. The staff were super friendly and tried to fix the problem but just couldn't...so you can't really blame them for uncontrollable circumstances I guess. I thought the girl working the reception desk was also incredibly beautiful which doesn't hurt, ha!

Clean rooms and comfortable bed. No electricity when I arrived. Wouldn't let me pay by credit card even though their ad says you can. Taxi transfer turned up an hour and a half late. Not very nice atmosphere.

The biggest problem was the lack of security. The outside door had to be opened by an attendant which left you standing on a dark street until they got to it. Once inside, our room had an un-lockable window that opened onto a public hallway, and there was literally a chair beneath it - hmm?. If you just need a place to sleep for a few hours before your flight, you're better off buying a pass at the business lounge at the airport. It's cleaner, safer, and quieter, and the showers are hot.

Great place if you are in a hurry to the airport. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is nice for the price. However bring your pillow and matress; they are very thin. The concrete, the tiles and the wallpaper walls make the construction very sensitive to noise. You can hear any conversation, any door, pin dropping, so be sure bring your earplugs. In general is a good place to stay. Locals say the area is not safe, but as long you stay indoors and use their transportation is ok.

Great place for an overnight near the airport. Only bummer was I couldn't get any hot water.

The positive is that It is really close to the airport and they will set up a cab for you to get your plane. If you are spending more than a few hours in Lima and was to see a bit of the city I wouldn't stay here. I had a whole day so I took a cab to downtown and it was extremely difficult to get back to the hostel by cab (and expensive). The staff were nice but when I called for help they couldn't figure out what I needed (my fault with my broken Spanish!). Stay here for the airport.

Pay Purix was exactly what I needed for a 15 hour layover in Lima. Staff were very nice and the showers were clean. 8 soles taxi ride to the airport.

Hostel is very close to the airport. Don't have to worry about traffic and making it on time to catch flights. There's a small family resturant two doors down and they serve great meals for only 8 soles. Nice place to stay for airport transfers. This is my second time staying at the hostel.

There were no locks on the internal cubbies, as I was told there would be. The location was a bit sketchy but close to the airport. I felt ripped off by paying 10 times as much for a taxi than I should have been. The atmosphere was cool but the staff was unhelpful and uncaring - I agreed to stay in a quad but it ended up being me (a female) and three grown men. I did not feel safe nor comfortable, and after telling an employee he made me feel worse. The bedding smelled as if it was reused.

Close to airport is one good thing. Rooms were average. Staff was friendly.

This is the perfect place to stay if you have a long layover. It's walking distance from the airport unless you have a lot of stuff or it's very late at night. The staff was very kind and they had a large selection of movies to kill the time. If you get in late and need a fast place to recuperate before hitting the city or a long layover, this is the place for you. Of course if you are staying longer you'll want to find a place closer to the city.

Very close to hotel arrived at 4am so airport transfer was helpful and stress free however is quite expensive considering the hostel is a mile or 2 down the road. Clean beds and nice breakfast but shower was freezing!

Like most of the other comments it's the perfect hostel for a quick overnight stay. It's only 3 minutes to the airport. Their driver Denise is lovely

Not much was going on around the facilities - no events were going on and not a lot of people were around. Good place to stay if you're looking for a quick stop-over through Lima. Close to the airport - beware of taxi drivers who tell you that the hostel is in a bad area; the area is fine but there is not a lot to do since the hostel borders an industrial sector of the city.

I only spent a night here because i had an early flight the next day. It's 10 min from LIMA airport

We chose Pay Purix due to its proximity to the LIma airport. We checked in at 11:00 pm and checked out at 4:30 am for a flight to Cusco. Friendly staff and great location if all you need is somewhere to spend a layover between flights.

This is a great place to stay for layover travelers and if you need to be close to the airport for an early flight (3-5 min from terminal.) The facilities are clean, comfortable and the staff is friendly helpful. They were able to accommodate me with a clean room and airport pickup and dropoff service, without hassle and regardless of the time of day. The hostel location is not the most exciting place to be, but it's convenient for weary travelers looking for an affordable option with quality.
