It was okay! The staff was friendly and the location is really good. But there was a very strange smell in the hostel, at the restaurant, it almost smelled like pee. It's not so clean either even tough the cleaning lady is always cleaning. It is a real party hostel, so if you are up for that, and a little smell doesn't ruin your party mood, this is the place for you!

Staff seemed nice enough, but rooms are run down and dirty. Everything is lit with terrible neon lights. Bathrooms dirty, too. Left the minute I arrived and checked into a different hostel. Don't stay here.

Stayed at the point hostel in Lima for 2 nights- had a good bar/ social area and a good TV area to chill in front of. Nice outside space, good hostel to meet people in. No lockers in some of the rooms outside.

Great hostel in a very good location, near supermarket and restaurants. Really good atmosphere in the hostel, super relaxed and friendly. Not too big that it just feels like a big party hostel. Staff were fantastic, especially the guy on reception late at night, really helpful and friendly. No kitchen for guests but reasonably priced food.

Super chill vibe. Very social hostel and fun parties that will most likely end in you going out to a club or something in a big group. The kitchen/cooked food you can buy is not worth the money however, but the hostel is very close (2 min) away from a really big and nice supermarket -and there's a ton of delicious local restaurants. The neighborhood (Barranco) is in fact very awesome, charming and nice -you will love it. Jorn Andersen

Awful hostel. The whole hostel smells like cigarettes since you are allowed to smoke at the bar and in the common area (only place with any wifi) which are not separated from the dorms by doors or anything similar. Wifi is very bad. Dirtiest hostel I have ever been to. The shower was that dirty that I wanted immediately to shower again right after I just took a shower. Shower curtains look very bad. Staff is ok. Poor breakfast. Stay away!

We stayed in Miraflores and Baranco when in Lima and found Baranco just so much nicer. Really close to the main area of Baranco (though Baranco is small so most places are). A good atmosphere and good deals on drinks at the bar. Shame they dont include Pisco sours though. Breakfast and cleanliness could be improved but fine for a couple days stay. More plug sockets and personal lights in the dorms would also make it much better.

Average hostel. Terrible music most of the time. The worst free breakfast I've encountered in six months of travelling.

If you like to party, this is your hostel. They do great parties, is very well located in Barranco, and the staff is very friendly.
