Everything about this place is great. Nice big boxes for storage, staff are really friendly and helpful, and it's a great location. The bar is nice but not a place to party all night.

Nice staying at Puri Wasi. Very clean toilets and very comfortable beds. Price is reasonable and breakfast at the rooftop is ok. Staff is nice, very helpful and nice.
Really awesome staff, great location, roof top bar is excellent. Wifi was consistent and fast, efficient same day laundry service and big lockers in the rooms. Will definitely stay here again when I return to Lima!
Great location and great price for what you get. It's actually a great hostel. Has everything you need in one. The bathrooms could be cleaned a bit more often and would nice to have more than two bathrooms per floor.
Had a good stay here, rooms and bathrooms were clean and staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast is basic but does the job. Good location close to several cafes and bars etc. Only negative would be that it can be tricky to manouvere the storage boxes in the room.
I stayed 2 nights at Puriwasi and enjoyed it. The rooms are very noisy at night, from a bar next door - bring earplugs! Breakfast (bread, jam, eggs, tea/coffee) is available until 11am. There are 2 computers free to use, and always lots of people around to talk to. The hostel puts on a BBQ most nights of the week. There are only 2 bathroom/toilets on each floor for everyone to use. Overall a decent hostel.
I was only there 12 hours before heading south, but it seemed like a nice hostel. I especially liked the very large lock boxes for each bed in the dorm, something you don't see at every hostel. Being 5 minute walk to Kennedy park made it much quieter, which is a big plus!
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.
