Great hostel, excellent location, nice stuff, very clean Comfortable beds and big rooms The only negative thing was de starway to the hostel when you arrive with the luggage I would come back and I recomend it to my friends!
Basic kitchen, nice rooftop terrace, definitely needs more toilets and showers and the lockers under the beds were really difficult to use. The lockers should be designed differently. Good basic hostel.
Only two bathrooms for a lot of rooms Also not very clean bathrooms Otherwise very nice staff, location Dorms 304 is super tight with all the beds and lockboxes (which are useless as you can't get them Out from under the bed with all the backpacks squashed in) Wifi very good Kitchen pretty basic but functional
This is a great hostel with friendly staff in a wonderful location! The rooftop bar was key, with good happy hour prices and breakfast served each morning. My only complaint is that the bathrooms got pretty gross. Not the fault of the hostel itself, but rather others staying there. Overall, it was a great experience and I would definitely stay here again!
Great location in Miraflores and nice enough hostel. Major issue is the one female and one male toilet per floor - not nearly enough! Also, I would avoid doing laundry here if possible. They lost a number of items and whites came back pink
Nice hostal with great roof terrace for evenings and breakfast. Even there the Wifi was really good. Small kitchen and basic breakfast like usual. Room had private bathroom with hot shower. The staff was very friendly and speaks perfect english. Laundry is a bit expensive and towels cost 3 Soles for rent. I think they rent couples one bed, because it happened twice in room, that there were two persons in one bed. Besides that I would definitely recommend the hostal!
Best hostel in Lima,
Good location and nice facilities for the price. Beds are comfy and have good storage set ups. I did have a few different issues with staff being cold/rude and also found the atmosphere of the hostel to be really poor. Not a lot of interaction, everyone just staring at their phones.
In good vicinity, safe to walk around, even the night. Big boxes under the beds, don't forget to bring your own padlock!! Generally quite in the night, but during the day, you can relax only in the roof bar. Breakfast consists of coffee/tea and 2 breads with jam and butter, really basic. Cleaninless the basic (its' main drawback), toilet had always paper and soap and hot water but quite small. Gnerally good if you want to stay some days but surely not for many. The staff is really excellent.
Nice place if stopping over in Lima. Good location. Go to the mall built into the cliff looking out over the pacific near the Marriott if your killing time. Has a cinema etc.
Very clean, hot showers, big beds, clean rooms. Nice location, nice roof terrace, good staff, what else do you need?

Rather good hostel in Miraflores, conveniently located one block away from a metrobus station. Beds tend to shake in earthquake mode every time someone moves or simply walks around. Big lockers under beds. Breakfast is OK. Friendly and helpful staff.
Very central location and easy to get around. Can be a bit noisy on weekends. The staff was very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Nice place to spend a few days - especially hanging out on the roof terrace.
Really nice hostel, great staff, nice location in Miraflores. Beds were comfortable. The kitchen could have been more organized and with more tools. We will recommend to friends!
I've been several times in Puriwasi, it's always a good choice!
I stayed ar puriwasi only one night, before hearings of to a 22h bus to Cusco. The less than 24h I was there, there was no WiFi, no internet on the central computers and no running water (cold and hot) during the day. The staff was very friendly, and the beds are comfortable, but I wouldn't recommend my friends.

The staff are super kind and helpful. They're very knowlegble about they city. and will do just about anything to make your stay better. The dorms are big enough, the shared bathroom is as clean as shared bathroom can get.. the kithcen is a little small but ok,nice breakfast. great location- very close to supermarket,lundry,the beach and bars. overall I enjoyed my stay there and would recommend anyone to stay in Puriwasi hostel😃
Hostel was in a great location, Central to many things in Miraflores. The staff, particularly Wendy made the hostel really friendly and provided excellent service. The rooftop bar and dining area was definitely a highlight of the stay. The 4 bedroom dorm was quite spacious. The staff clean the toilets and hostel on a daily basis. Would stay here again.
This hostel was not bad. The dorm room was very plain but the bed was comfortable and they have storage lockers under the bunk bed. It in good area near the pizza alley and to the beach. The dorm bathroom door lock was broke and they didn't fix it. I would strongly suggest them set up more hostel activities and upgrade the dorm room. There are better hostels in Miraflores.
