Great place, with a cool staff and comfortable beds. There are a of other hostels closer to downtown or the beach though.


Great stay in Lima


Hostel offered a pickup service at a good price from the airport which was much easier and stress free than bartering on arrival. They also organised our taxi back to the airport at short notice. Staff were lovely, the girl at the front desk was very kind and helpful, taking lots of time to explain places to go in the area. In a good location and close to great restaurants. The hostel itself is a bit run down and some of the rooms a bit dingy but overall good value for money.


Stayed in 6 bed dorm,which was out of house and big problem with bathrooms as you need to pass by reception and main door to get in. Also bathrooms are very tiny,hard to fit in and shower area is open doesn't have door to lock,it have curtain only. Else,Very calm hostel few block away from famous area Parque Kennedy in Miraflores.Breakfast was also good. Nice and helpful staff however they don't speak English but try to help always. Place was very calm and not kind of partying hostal.


We arrived at midnight and left at 8:30 am. The room was a 6 person dorm, and as soon as the door was opened a terrible smell was released. Exhausted we passed out, woke up at 7:30 and had to escape the room. We went up, got a coffee, used the wifi to get our bearings then left.
