  • The staff was welcoming, friendly and went out of their way to ensure guests enjoyed Lima. For instance, I was given information on good, cheap nearby restaurants, how to navigate the local bus system, and how to get into the museums & attractions by paying less (example: 1/s Sundays at the Contemporary Art Museum). Lima can be a bit imposing initially, this is the perfect place to start. Really helpful staff and clean faciltiies; what more do you want, gringo?

  • Great relaxed hostel environment, perfect for actually getting a good nights rest, well kept and clean, kitchen is small but functional although could use a can opener. The hostel feels secure and staff are friendly and helpful especially Alex and the owner Pedro.

  • This is a great Hostel. The location is great and the price is unbeatable. The staff is very, very friendly and they help you with everything. The best part is that they always talk to you with a smile in their faces and that is a great start for any conversation. I’d back anytime to this Hostel because I know I will be in good hands.

  • I stayed in the shared room. It was OK but the shower would get dirty quick and the hot water was rarely functional!

  • The hostel was in a great location and had nice common areas. The rooms themselves weren't bad, but nothing special either. We got a private roof on the roof for our last night which had a nice view but was very sparsely furnished, decorated, or attended to. The breakfast was typically underwhelming. Everything was pretty clean though, and seemed safe.

  • One of the very best hostels I've stayed at in my travels. Staff is extremely attentive and helpful. This hostel also attracts a great diversity of travelers and becomes a really great social scene day after day. I stayed her when my trip started and again when it came to an end.

  • Very clean, not loud, nice kitchen for use. Pedro was very helpful and in the end, we wished we had stayed here for all of our hostel nights in Miraflores. The only drawback here is that the location makes for a longer walk to the neighborhood center and attractions, but the walk is through a very nice neighborhood, and all of the necessary services are located close to the hostel. The upshot of the location is that the ocean and Lovers' Park is close by -- very beautiful and great for walks.

  • Family House is great starting or ending point. All of the staff will go out of their way to help you and they work around the clock to keep the place clean. We felt very secure staying there and it is a fine location. The staff was organized, professional and balanced welcoming tired international travelers as well as sending people off if that was their final destination. Overall, I would recommend this hostel and stay there again. Thanks to all the staff at Family House!
