Good location if you need to quickly get to the Airport. Quite good facilities, but definitely not where you should stay if you're looking for a party hostel/a big night.
god location only if you have a flight in the morning, otherwise this locatin is very dangerous, so you are left only with the option of hostel calling you a taxi, wich will cost triple as if you just grab one at the street... hostel was nice, breakfast was very good, lots of space to chill too.

Araceli has been very kind and all arrangements worked perfectly, including the pick up from/to the airport.
Great hostel for a night before an early flight. Needs to update the address though, no cab drivers understood the formatting.
Great hostel to stay at if you have a flight lay-over. If you're planning on going into town - be warned its S35 each way. Only complaint was transport from the airport. Even though they say they are only 3mins from airport, you can't walk as too dangerous (also actually 5mins by car - quite a walk). AIRPORT TAXIS ARE S50(!!!) Hostel offers a pick-up service for S22, but this is still ridiculous for the distance. Go to the airport gates, step outside, and you can get a taxi for less than S10.
We had a very short stay in Lima, as we were actually transitting to Cusco. We spent only a night in the hostel, exellent loacation as it is really close to the airport.
staff very helpful and pleasant but too much noise at late at night

The hostel is near the airport, so very convenient for a night after or before a flight, but is way out of the center of Lima and Miraflores, so a long bus or taxi ride. Considering the traffic in Lima I then would not recommend to stay there just for visiting Lima. That said, the place is very nice and clean, so we really enjoyed our stay there.
Good location if you want to be close to the airport (only reason to book here really). Staff are pretty woeful. Reluctantly helpful. Not given the room that we booked (given a four person room instead of a double). Shower was mediocre. The airport transfer, which takes all of 5 minutes drive, is extortionate by local standards. Overall on hindsight, I would have booked a bit farther away and left a little earlier for the airport. Just my 2 cents.
The hostel is located a short distance from the Lima airport. We were staying overnight and leaving the next morning to Cusco. The breakfast was great and included scrambled eggs and fresh fruit and buns.
A lot of people mark this hostel down because of location. It's near the airport. If you want to be close to the airport, then the location is perfect. If you want to see Lima, obviously you should go to Miraflores. This hostel was actually surprisingly great. Awesome breakfast with fruit, cereal, cake, bread, coffee etc. Tons of games (pingpong, pool), and an excellent DVD collection. The atmosphere is a little meh since it's not the kind of place you stay for more than a night.
Location is bad. only interesting if come or go to airport. Taxi of the hotel is expensive. there are a lot of taxis in the street in front of the hotel you can take for less. Also in de middel of the night.
Great if you have a flight out the next morning, otherwise head into Miraflores. It's a bit noisy being next to a main road, but hard to beat the location if you have an early flight! Airport pickup was smooth and easy and worth the Soles.
OK hostel in good location close to the airport. A long way from the centre of town though if you are looking to go there, we had trouble getting a cab back that night. Also, we were charged for 10 beers for our tab for the night, when we actually only drank 5 or 6. Not sure if this was a genuine mistake or a money making scheme.
We had booked a double and a single room and they tried to put us in a triple. One girl wasn't to helpful, but the rest were very nice. The taxi service is to expensive, it's only 3 minutes and they overcharge you. Take a taxi on the street. They definitely need more light in the common breakfast room, it's dark like in a bar and the room has no windows.
Nothing special, crappy place very close to the airport. Theoretically useful for overnight stays but with overpriced airport transfers you might as well stay in Miraflores. It was quite dead when I went, and there is nothing to do in the neighbourhood. Not recommended.

Perfect place if you just want to be close to the airport - has a pool table, foosball, guitar, and bar. It is a very short ride back and forth to the airport. The staff are friendly and the place is clean. Do not stay here if your intention is to really visit Lima. You have to use taxis in this neighborhood. Location is difficult to give a score here. It is "excellent" for staying close the airport. It is "very poor" as the security is not good and it is far from the city center.
Perfect location if you need to catch an early flight!
Nice hostel with close proximity to airport. Not best location other than that although near a great supermarket and a couple of local markets which you can buy food to cook in the hostel. Great DVD collection and chill out space. Becareful of the showers, they look old and if you touch the top you can get a electric shock.
