Wasn't too crowded and the bathroom ensuite was perfect. The meeting areas were spread out, but alright for meeting people. The location was right in the action so I didn't have to walk very far to get food or items. The check in time is 2pm, not 1pm as stated and that needs to change.

Staff was really helpful and gave us great and honest advice. Internet in the computers was good, though wifi reception at the room was not. Dorm room had no door lock, and staff occasionally enrered without closing the door. The place was pretty quiet, and the breakfast quite basic. Good value for money.

A relatively good hostel, in a convenient location within Lima. The hostel itself was relatively clean, however our door room was extremely smelly (food odour and sweat) upon arrival, to the point that I had to open all the windows and doors, and put the room fan on high power. The breakfast was pretty good, if not a little simple; bread/toast, butter and jams, coffee and teas. The baggage storage was highly insecure; just an open room without supervision, which anyone could access.

Very good Hostel in a great location. I travelled for 4 months across South America and Andrea was the best staff at any hostel I stayed at in my whole trip! Super friendly, helpful and really made the whole experience of staying in Lima amazing :)

Staff could have been a bit friendlier. I had read reviews that the toilets were not cleaned enough. But I think they listened to these reviews and had a cleaner in all rooms regularly.

Overall ok stay- comfy beds and good facilities in nice location. Beware there is a bar/ club right next door blasting loud music till 3am- if you are expecting to get a quiet night's sleep this is NOT the place. Some of the staff were a bit hostile (2 out of 3) and one refused to honour my entitle 10% discount on presentation of a map. Staff could definitely do with some training on being a bit nicer to guests!

We are sorry, but something must have gone wrong for you, which we did not notice. Normally, we are very aware and caring about the well-being of our guest. Every traveller who come with the map has a 10% discount at the front desk at CHECK IN TIME. In your case it was not so, and unfortunately it was not of your understanding. Anyhow, thank you for your review.

Stayed for 2 nights in July, would recommend to anybody. Clean, spacious rooms, clean bathrooms, decent showers, hot water, comfortable large beds, breakfast lovely on the rooftop terrace. Toast, spread, eggs, tea & coffee. Friendly staff. Storage boxes great idea under the beds. Would stay here again.

Excellent location in Miraflores, only a 3 minute walk to Parque Kennedy and 15 minutes to the coast. Comfortable beds and excellent hangout spot on terrace (amazing BBQ dinners on weekends!) with panoramic view of the surrounding cityscape. Showers could be a little hotter, and 2 of the 3 wi-fi routers are unstable, but was able to manage well enough with one of them. Overall, a solid place to base yourself during your stay in Lima!

Best hostel staff in all of Peru!! Loved Andrea and Kathy for their friendliness and suggestions! Location is very close to Kennedy Park and price is cheap (for Lima). Each dorm bed has a large wooden locker under the bed which is great, but opens up like a toy box so they are a bit difficult to open in the small dorm room. Great rooftop bar with a good 2-for-1 happy hour.

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.

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.
