A lot to do and a lot of company! Simple as that! Parties every night and various tours to do every day of the week if you're up earlier that 3 pm after the partying! The staff is ready to help at moment's notice and everyone is pretty friendly except for the short female manager.
Possibly the best hostel overall I stayed in my 1-month vacation through Peru, Argentina, and Brazil. The staff - especially Nik, Jorge, Sandra, and most of all - Tor - were the best staff I met for any hostel. They were always willing to help and hang around with you. When you pass by the hostel, be sure to spend some time with Tor if he's around! The place was like a home-away-from-home. Be sure to take a moto-taxi at the bottom of the hill; it'll take you all the way up for only 3 Reals!
The staff have beginner level English but are able to communicate with you through Google Translate. If you have beginner-level Spanish, you should be fine. The hostel is close to the city center and is about a 30 min taxi drive to Iguazu Falls. Maids come around every day to drop off your breakfast (included in cost) and also to clean your room.
Not much was going on around the facilities - no events were going on and not a lot of people were around. Good place to stay if you're looking for a quick stop-over through Lima. Close to the airport - beware of taxi drivers who tell you that the hostel is in a bad area; the area is fine but there is not a lot to do since the hostel borders an industrial sector of the city.
Everything was pretty clean - no worries about that at all! The only thing I wished is that the hostel was closer to the airport. It takes approximately 40 min one-way from the hostel to the airport (should cost about 40-50 Soles each way). Although the hostel was quite a long-ways from the airport, the hostel was in a good district of the city (Miraflores district).

Really nice, really clean! The staff was really helpful in showing us where to go and suggesting methods of transportation! Rooftop bar added a nice vibe to the friendly mood.
