Happy Up Here Guesthouse is an unusual place where a property style accommodation awaits you with the cozy and friendly atmosphere of your mate's house.

Our independent backpackers' guesthouse is located within 5 minutes walking distance from the National Museum, 5-15 minutes ride from the main bust stations, and 30 minutes from the International Airport. We are just in the middle of the city between touristic part of Miraflores and the Historical Centre. Actually, our location is a great transportation hub to every place of the surprising and huge city of Lima!

As well as being a small business, this is our family home. We'd love to share with you not only our time but all the help you're looking for to make your stay in Lima an unforgettable experience!

Our small and chillin' guest house, located in the most ecological area of Lima, is the perfect spot to rest and relax during the time you spend in the city.

We offer not only a budget accommodation with all the needed services, but also a peaceful and alternative place to stop in.

If you're coming from the airport, you'll need to take a taxi cab, which will cost you about US$15.00, but we also offer the pickup service if you prefer to be more comfortable, just write us after you make your booking. Otherwise, give the taxi driver the direction and he will get you in 30 to 45 minutes to our place (depending on the traffic).

If you're coming by bus, depending on which company you're traveling, you can take a bus (if you're in the Javier Prado Terminals like Cruz del Sur, Excluciva, Salazar, or Ormeo, you just need to pick up a cab and they will take you where we are in 5minutes. You can also cross the Javier Prado Av. and take a bus who goes all Javier Prado and step down one block after Aviacion Av. and walk down through that street (Leonardo Da Vinci) 04 blocks till you arrive to Boccioni Street where you have to turn left and walk half a block to get to our place. If you want, we can also pickup from the bus station at your request.

If it's too complicated, and you're arriving around one of the Javier Prado Stations (Cruz del Sur, Excluciva, Ormeo, Salazar, Cial, Transportes Junin, Soyuz, Peru Bus, Oltursa), write us after you confirm your booking and we'll pick you up for free. (That's the good thing about reading all the info given ;) )

Hope to hear from you soon!

See ya!
