I paid 45/soles for a private room with a shower where I didn't have to wear flip flops. My room had a porch with lounge chairs and a hammock. The bungalows were so quiet at night and a 5 min walk directly to beach. Beautiful!
This is the place if you want to be social and drink. The hostel is more resort like with a huge bar/eating area, plenty of hammocks and a pool with lots of lounge chairs. Volleyball set up at the entrance and within the pool, lots of games: ping pong, pool, 5 ft connect 4, giant jenga, darts. Direct access to the beach. Can get noisy at night as bar closes at 2 and there are events every night (karaoke, drinking games, masquerade ball). Bunk beds are lofted so there is a lot of space.

Marcel was really nice and sent a welcome email once I made a booking. He offered to have airport pickup for me. My room was looking right out onto the Amazon and it was cleaned as soon as I arrived. There is a special charm to this type of hostel, so you have to be willing to put up with certain issues (mosquitos) to get an amazing return (waking up on the Amazon).
Great location in Miraflores--you can take the Metro bus to Ricardo Palma from the bus terminal (Cruz del Sur, Ormeño at Javier Prado) and walk 4 blocks. Lots of restaurants and 3 grocery stores in the area. Breakfast includes bread
Breakfast was great--you could get eggs and pancakes for free. The 8 bed dorm I was in was roomy and had skylights which really helped when getting up early in the morning for the train (or ruins).
Great space--lots of areas for people to lounge in the courtyard, tv room, internet room or bar/kitchen. Breakfast was coffee, tea, bread & jam, puffed cereal. Yogurt, omeletts, English breakfast were all available for purchase. Every night there was an activity: drinking games, ping pong tournament, bbq but it wasn't overly noisy. Rooms were spacious and the showers were hot with great water pressure. Dinner was available for purchase as well, but there was a large kitchen for people to use too
You can't beat the price for the 6 bed dorm above the reception desk! Just don't choose this option if you are a light sleeper. I found all the workers to be friendly and helpful--they helped me plan a trip to Colca Canyon, get a bus ticket to Cusco and arrange a taxi for me. The bathrooms were alright but I had to walk down a flight of stairs and up another one to take a shower. Breakfast was bread with butter, jam and coffee/tea with options to purchase pancakes, eggs or fresh juice.
