Absolutely fantastic hostel! They will arrange a pickup for you from the airport for 55 soles, and after that everything is so inexpensive! This hostel has lockers, but I never used them as it feels completely safe and secure. The bed sheets were clean and tidy, and the people very friendly. The location is perfect-- right across the street from a cliff-side park overlooking the ocean where there is a daily sunset spectacle and only two blocks away from a supermarket... Barranco is Beautiful!

Excellent choice to discover the Barranco district. The station of Metropolitana bus (express bus which has its own road, functions like a metro) is nearby, so you can be in the center in 20 minutes. Atmosphere is amazing, great for socializing and meeting other travellers (bar, pool, restaurant, table football) On the minus side. There is no hot water at all, and there are no electric sockets in the rooms, so if you want to charge your electronics, you have to leave it on the reception.

The hostel was okay, It smelled rlly bad in my room, even with the window open. I believe the cause was people who tend to stay at the hostel for longer periods of time don't seem to get their sheets changed. It's a party hostel, theres people up at all hours, even if you go to bed at 5 in the morning. There will be people up talking.

Very good hostel, but far from the central.

No secure lockers to store your belongings. Staff doesn't seem to care about security or cleanliness. Out of 7 months of travelling this is absolutely the worst hostel and I would never recommend anyone to stay here.

The staff were really helpful but the hostel itself was quite grim, was full of sleazy boys who I just couldn't be bothered with so I checked out early. Also things like plugs and locks on the lockers didn't work, the whole place just needs a touch up.

Super atmosphere, the staff is nice and the place is great, above all the garden. The only bad point is there are too few places to plug things in. But I'd definitely recommend the place !

A basic but very friendly hostel in Barranco, perfectly situated for the beach (10 minute walk) and all the restaurants and bars. A very artistic district perfect if you want to see art museums. The staff were very helpful and kind to me as my luggage had been lost. Great atmosphere but bring ear plugs if you like to sleep early!!!!

Nice area with a cute little park across the road that looks out over the sea. We had a private room that was off the main building which was clean and quite. The main rooms are quite dark and musty smelling but other than that it was safe and the staff were friendly and helpful!
