Great place, super friendly staff. Many bathrooms and toilets, although the showers don't have much room to get changed in. Lovely terrace on the top floor and breakfast beats most hostels (although it is still faily basic).
Staff is very friendly and helpful, room was clean. The bathroom and shower were below average

Excellent location - so convenient being almost right off Avenida Arequipa. But it felt grungy and a bit run-down. There is potential. The bathroom/shower door was broken, no place to set anything down and felt awkward to use. At one point every toilet in the place was out of paper. The place feels like it needs a good, deep cleaning. It does have a very chill atmosphere, but is not conducive to meeting other people. The staff were nice, however spoke kinda limited English.
Booked a double bed private as it was our last weekend in Peru, when we arrived we were shown a room roughly 2m by 1 m with a set of bunkbeds, when we queried our booking we were told the room we booked was not available, staff simply blamed everybody and everything else (including us). wouldn't be surprised if they sold it and pocketed some money for it. would not recommend ever.
Very quiet here, especially compared to Pariwana that is more of a party hostel and on a busier street. No bar and the supplies in the bathroom were somewhat lacking. Nice upstairs deck. The gentleman running the front counter was extremely helpful and friendly. He also arranged a cheap and prompt taxi for us to the airport. Perhaps during the busy season, this place is hopping... Not far from the busy parks, streets, and restaurants but a little off the beaten path so the street isn´t as loud.
Our private room was clean and had lockers to put stuff in.This was also the only good thing.There's not really any place to sit, there's a terrace but it has almost no chairs, breakfast is poor and there's very few showers and hardly any space in the bathrooms. One person in the staff was extremely strange and treated us like we were two children (telling us three times to wear a hat because the sun is so strong, NOT in a very friendly way).There's many hostels in the area - choose another one!
Always love staying here! Estevan is an accet to the place. Thanks again
in 2012 (bed) cleanliness is simply a must feature for hostels. in pirwa Lima this was not the case. nice staff.
The excellent staff made this a wonderful stay- they were available for advice and set out a good breakfast for us compared to others we've had in Peru. There are stores nearby and a kitchen you can use. If you aren't sure what to do in the evening, ask for directions to Kennedy Park where there are some good clubs, it's only a couple blocks' walk away. Would recommend to fellow backpackers looking for a chill place to relax in Miraflores.
Nice people but just very quiet. If your looking for a hostal with not many people then this is the hostal for u :)
Nice hostel, not too far from the bulk of Miraflores. Decent room, comfy bed, separate but decent bathroom. Pricey compared to the rest of Peru, but it's near the heart of Miraflores...
