The hostel had a cool, cheap bar and a large courtyard, making it very easy to socialise with people. The staff and long term guests were very friendly and welcoming. Lots of people kept extending their stay here, including myself. It was hard to leave!

Super place to stay in Huanchaco. One of the best pIaces I have stayed in in Peru/South America. Secure , Calm, well organized but with a relaxed vibe. The Hostel is in a sort of walled garden. I stayed two weeks and there was a nice bunch of People staying during that time. You get your own key for your room and the gate which for independent types is nice + there is a kitchen, good wifi etc.. There are only a handful of other Guests . Paul is friendly and helpful .

The Point Lima have a very good location on barranco area, is quiet and at same time really closer tho the restaurants and the barranco nightlife. The staff is good, especially Priscila, Carlos and an angertinian guy that i didint remember his name. The hostel area is big and was clean and the breakfest is simple and ok. The only thing that was diferent then i was expecting was the "parties", that was more like each one in your own party. i only sugest more activities to integrate people.

Stayed here over new year and really disappointed by the whole place. Definitely not a party hostel. Firstly being treated terribly by the female staff for talking to the bar tenders who happen to be their boyfriends. Secondly if you can scrape enough jam onto your bit of bread in the morning you are doing well. Door is always secured which is a safe point. Charging phones is done at reception in a small locker so you need a spare lock and wifi (if it ever worked) was only in the common area.

Amazing place with friendly staff and people. Super chill. Wish the place had a better router that worked in the room on my phone or in the bar, but overall not bad wifi when I was close to the router. Staff was pretty good with English.

No electrical sockets in the room which makes charging your electrical equipment an hassle. You have to charge in the common area and cannot leave it unattended. The breakfast included bread and jam only. Wristband required for the hostel which has pros and cons. Pro if you get lost and need to take a taxi direction is there. con you standout like crazy. No towels for rent for shower. Charge for using card. No fan no AC. Very bad pillows.

Only stayed for a couple of nights but it was pretty good. Night time atmosphere was ok but it didn't feel like a party hostel, then again I wasn't there in the weekend.. Surrounding area is nice, very close to the beach and heaps of little restaurants nearby. Staff were all very helpful.

We enjoyed our stay as we had a private room. The staff was nice enough although they were supposed to pick us up from the airport. They didn't show up even after we called after landing.

The place stunk- a mixture of dampness, musty and smoke. We couldn't enjoy the great facilities and social areas due to the smell. The place was dirty- it looked like the floors had not been mopped in years! I was afraid to use the toilet as it was dirty. Its saving grace was the fantastic staff and good location!

The place is highly recommended, the staff is great and loved hanging out with them. There is no need to go find a bar cause it's right under your nose. Stay there at night it's a great time. Go to the city during the day.

The hostel is in Barranco a nice area with lots of restaurants and bars. The hostel itself is very nice, it has a nice courtyard and the rooms are spacious but unfortunately it's very dirty.. The room smelled very bad and even leaving the window open during the whole day the smell would not go away; the bathroom were dirty as welle, but at least the showers were hot. Breakfast very poor and slow, it would be so easy to prepare a simple buffet instead of preparing everyone's place.

Party hostel, which we liked for our stay in Lima! The rooms are comfortable, hot showers, too bad we couldn't cook ourselves!
