Mamas was the perfect place to land after our long flight over to Peru! Warm and welcoming, and provided delicious breakfast every morning including homemade bread and eggs. The common room is great, lots of space to hang out and a good location to organise SIM card, cash conversion etc. Would definitely return! Thanks Mama xx

We stayed here for 2 nights. Mama greeted us warmly and kindly. The hostel is only 15 mins in taxi from international aiport. very handy. we had tatsy eggs and bread for breakfast. A really pleasant stay. The hostel was pretty quiet. The Wifi is quite slow which can make planning things a bit harder. however, i would reccomend!

Mama was so sweet and helpful. We arrived very late in the night and she waited up for us and helped us figure out a SIM and getting around the city the next day. She is a very lovely woman. Bedroom and facilities were great. Recommended if you need something close to the airport.
