Pariwana is a great place to stay in Lima, good location, great social scene (games, bar, etc), good showers... was all round what you want in a hostel!
Banana's was amazing! Getting the sandbuggying/boarding included is a great idea as you are guaranteed a spot and don't miss out! The staff were especially amazing here, we stayed 2 nights and knew a lot of them by name. Luis is amazing at helping you organise everything you need, also cooks an amazing BBQ! He was very helpful and lots of fun. Food is great, buggy tour was excellent, pool and social areas were plentiful and well set out, all in all, great place to stay!
We only stayed one night but the hostel has great facilities, good menu and was lots of fun!
Loki is a great place to stay, yes its party but if you want somewhere quiet, don't stay at a Loki! We stayed in a twin room on the 3rd floor and you couldn't hear the bar too much, no problems sleeping etc. Tour desk guy wasn't fantastic, nice guy but not a lot of personality and couldn't give much information.
Copa Hostel was a fun place to stay, great upstairs patio with pool, amazing BBQ's. One staff member was very helpful and went out of his way to make you feel at home, the others I found a little rude and disinterested, please look up from your computer when I approach the front desk and maybe crack a smile! Wifi only worked in the reception area and there was only 2 toilets/showers on the top level.
I loved my stay at Barra Beach Club, the staff are amazing and make you feel at home! They are like a family and you can feel the good vibes they are putting out. Anything you needed they could help you with. A very relaxed place to stay, and you have to love the view from the bar!
Great place close to the beach, pool table and common area are great. Wifi was a but hard to get onto but it happens. Cute kitten that meanders around the place.
Was a great little place to stay for a night in Colonia, good vibes, great BBQ (seriously delicious), friendly staff, really cute place. Only minor issue was wifi didn't reach the rooms, was only really working well in the reception area but that's not a big deal.
America Del Sur is a really fantastic hostel! The best thing about this hostel are the staff are amazing (I love them all), the hostel is really clean and comfortable. Facilities are great, breakfast is delicious and served until 11 (thank you). I ended up staying over a month and loved it. It's not too party but there is always a party to be found if you want one, trust me! The beer is cheaper than any other hostel i have been to as well, so that's a bonus.
