  • The location is excellent, walking distance to the historic centre. The building is an awesome mansion from the beginning of 20 century, with very high ceilings, elegant, noble, really beautiful. The only problem is constant noise from Lima´s incessant traffic. The first thigh I had to buy were earplugs, otherwise you just can´t sleep.

  • Good hostel, good athmosphere and okay prices. Nice location, far better to be here than Miraflores. The staff were helpfull, and we got a free walking tour aswell, that was high quality and a nice way to meet people. Lots of young people there, would reccomend.

  • Some of the staff were discriminatory of english speakers, and told us to take a taxi to the airport, and did not share that there was an option for a bus. One of hte ladies bathrooms were broken for the duration of our stay. The hostel did not sell necessities like a lighter for the stove, and the atmosphere was not set up for making friends. There was little space for luggage in our room, and the location was not very good, it was a crowded, smelly, noisy walk to any tourist sites.

  • Not in Miraflores, but very close to the central plazas. The hostel is worth the book on the merits of its free daily city tour and bar alone. Claudia, who works the travel agency desk inside, was also wonderful. We booked a very cheap, absolutely wonderful Salkantay trek through her. If you're in Lima for awhile, I recommend staying in Miraflores, but for the night you arrive in Lima this is a great option. See the city the next day and plan your adventure from here.
