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😃


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.


I stayed at Puriwasi for one night, New Years Eve. I easily met some people and had a great night at the rooftop BBQ. I booked a bed in the 4-bed room, but had the whole room to myself.


Stayed here over Christmas, staff was great with letting us do a rooftop barbecue. Easy to meet everyone. Facilities, etc were above average for convenience. Only downside was lockers are under beds and need to be rolled out, but very small issue.


Loved the staff. Really cool laid back type. Stayed in the 6 bed ensuite dorm. I would recommend this as there's only 2 bathrooms to service 3 or 4 other dorms on that floor. My dorm was clean and very spacious. Nice beds and clean sheets. Good lockers. Good location to Kennedy park. 3 min walk away. Staff recommended some good restaurants in area. Not great common areas here. Rooftop bad was cool. Supermarkets nearby. I'd stay again no problem


Such a good hostel, would happily stay there again. really comfortable beds and great new facilities.

Really nice hostel located close to JFK park in Miraflores. Good modern facilities and nice common area on the roof. Wendy on front desk very helpful and an infectious character!


liked it here. found it easy to meet people. rooftop bar was good too. 8 bed dorm was a little small when full. breakfast ok; good location.


Great hostel with lovely staff in a vibrant part of Lima.


Nicely designed, laid back hostel. Nice bar.


Nice hostel, a bit quiet but it was low season. Staff friendly and generally clean.

Located very central in Miraflores, very secure, very clean and high quality rooms! Water was not always hot (but not really cold either). Helpful staff is available around the clock. WiFi could be a bit stronger to also cover the rooms. Nice atmosphere due to rooftop bar with good drinks!


Beautiful hostel, top location close to the metropolitano stop.

Thanks for your comment.


Great staff and convenient location. The noise from the club downstairs is very inconvenient.

Thanks for your comment, We tell you, we have already solved the problem about noisy. Nowdays our customers are enjoying a nice stay here.


Had a good stay, really nice facilities and the (standard/ensuite) beds are the best!! Also the staff is really easy going and friendly. Rafael is learning Dutch, so this one is for you - bedankt voor je hulp vriend - tot ooit!


Cold and damp. They keep the windows open everywhere so there is always a cold draft coming in. No communal areas apart from the bar on the roof which is not great when it rains!
