Damp smelling, old and dirty sheets, mould in the bathroom, tired surroundings and decor, cold, loud staff, dingy bar, go to local bars and clubs...so much better than the atmosphere in this hostel. Lima is a great city and there are much better places in Barranco to stay.....don't know why people are rating this place with 100%!

Party hostel


Good hostel located on the cliff in Barranco District. I only stayed there one night and I had to wake up extremely early the next morning to catch a bus, so i didn't take part in the craziness party scene that most people talk about. This is definitely a younger crowd hostel where everyone looks to drink and have a good time. A great place to meet new people.


Party hostel


Great hostel, 7 soles cab ride to miraflores. The atmosphere and staff at the hostel are great, the facilities could be slightly improved (bigger kitchen that's seperated from the commercial kitchen, lockers inside the rooms with outlets in them). Other than that great hostel with a great vibe.


Great Hostel!!! Amazing parties! and an excellent staff!! I had a very good time there!

Priscilla that works at reception is a lovely soul and rocked! And they have a guy that comes out every night with you to take you to the clubs and makes sure you go to the best places of the night and that you don't get ripped off.


We had an awesome stay! Would definitely go back to the point Lima


This was a perfect balance of Party and Chill Out in one place. Lovely, friendly staff, a cool bar which was nicely busy even in low season and good rooms. Location couldn't be better either, right in central Barranco! A great young, fun persons hostel.


Good party hostel. Fun atmosphere, helpful stuff, clean and good location.Would recommend this hostel.

Had a great time in the bar, however the hostel overbooked the reservations and we was send to another hostel. I cant begin to comprehend why a hostel having already the guest in the hostel will make them leave for new guest to arrive giving preference to the new guest and not the existing guest. However the hostel is very cozy the bar is great and the bar staff made a great effort to make sure we had a good time...


This is a hostel great for people who love to party and for people who don't want to go out allot. You have in the hostel a bar (with pool table), computers,wifi,a nice restaurant, and they also sale little stuff as toilet paper,snacks and cigarets. The hostel is a 2-3 minutes walk from barranco center and the bridge of wishes or something like that. It was the last place I stayed in Peru and I really enjoyed it.


One of the reception is awesome and cares ... The other doesn't. The bar staff is cool. Was there for a week, for like 4 days it was a sausage fest.


Great hostel. Amazing staff. Perfect place to chill or party and an ideal location to visit the main attractions of Lima with Miraflores close by, the beach a walk away, slap bang in bohemian Barranco and with a fantastic view as you step out the door. Loved my time there!


If you're in your early 20's (or younger), you are looking for spring break atmosphere, love playing beer-pong and partying every night, then this is the perfect hostel for you! If you're any older, quieter, or want a good night sleep, look elsewhere... That said, the hostel is in a great area of town, very close to the beach, nice restaurants and supermarket. Free breakfast is the absolute basic, you can't cook but you can buy food. The lockers are not in the room which is not practical...


Great and friendly staff. The bartenders and the night vibe was awesome. The only two issues I have with the place is that there is only one hammock, haha silly but true. And the big issue is that online it says there is a "kitchen", yes there is but a kitchen for the staff to sell food. The guest are not allowed to us it therefor being forced to purchase food from the hostel. No refrigerator for guest use. Kitchen shouldn't be listed on the website, should be listed as resturant.
