Come and relax at our refuge and share with us your adventures through the land of the Incas. Begin your journey at a comfortable and cozy house in Miraflores, three blocks away from the touristic Center and a two minute walk from the seafront.

We have restored a traditional house from the early twentieth century in keeping with its original style and provide all the necessary amenities to insure that you will have a pleasant stay in a comforting and relaxed atmosphere.

In KACLLA, The Healing Dog Hostel, we love to take care of you. Every day we offer you a delicious, healthy and nutritious breakfast, included in the cost of all of our room rates. Every morning you will enjoy a glass of natural orange juice, fresh baked rolls, tea, coffee and milk. All this comes accompanied with our homemade peanut butter, fruit jam and granola (composed of oat, wheat, raisins, peanut and quinoa); all naturally sweetened with chancaca or panela (wholemeal and unrefined cane sugar).

Our men’s and woman’s bathrooms are spacious and specially designed as clubhouse bathrooms. Showers and toilets are in separate rooms. You can always take a long and relaxed shower at the beginning or end of your day’s adventures as hot water is provided 24 hours every day.

A cozy living room is at your disposal to meet other travellers and share your adventures, or just to relax and watch some cable TV, watch a DVD movie, play a board game, play some music or maybe paint a nice picture. But if you need some privacy, there is a reading room with books for exchange.

Our kitchen is fully equipped with burners, oven, microwave, fridge and all the cooking utensils you might need to prepare anything you want.

There is internet wireless connection in all areas, but if you don’t have a computer we can lend you one.

Our staff is at your full disposal 24 hours. We provide touristic guidance and offer recommendations if you want help designing your own personalized adventure itinerary.

We offer 6-Bed Shared Dorms and 2, 3 or 4-Bed Private Rooms; all of them equipped with personal security lockers. We also have Double Bedrooms equipped with a cabinet. We provide sheets and pillows as well as courtesy blankets and towels.

What is KACLLA?

KACLLA is the quechua name for the Peruvian Hairless Dog. Due to the texture of their skin and the fact that they are three degrees warmer than the normal canine temperature, kacllas have been used for millennia by indigeneous Andean civilizations as pain relief for rheumatism and other ailments.

KACLLA, The Healing Dog Hostel, is a cozy rest and mind-renewing centre where we intend to give you channels of connection with indigeneous culture and your inner self too.

Come in, we would like to 'heal' you...

Prices are per person per night.

From the airport: we recommend taking a taxi for 50 soles (US$20). The ride may take anywhere from 30 to 50 minutes depending on the traffic. Book it with us and the taxi driver will wait for you outside the luggage pick up zone carrying a sign with your name. If you are travelling light, want to save some money, and don’t mind a little bit of adventure, you can take a “kombi” (small bus) for 2.50 soles right outside the airport, just look for a white bus that has a red “S” sign on the windshield and tell the collector you are going to get off at the 1st Block of Benavides Avenue. You will be dropped off at Porta Street (our street). Walk towards the sea (right side in regard to the “kombi”) and 2 blocks further, on the left hand side, you will find us.

From the bus station: we recommend taking a taxi for 13 soles (US$ 5). It is also possible to arrive for 2 soles by taking the “Metropolitano”-Bus but you must have a rechargable transport card that costs 5.00 soles (one can be used by several passengers). Get on board at the junction of Javier Prado Avenue and Via Expresa, heading toward Miraflores. Get off at “Av. 28 de Julio”-stop, and as you leave the station turn right on 28 de Julio Avenue, 8 blocks further you will get Porta Street. Turn left and look for the KACLLA at the left side of the street.

Good luck!!!

Located Near

Lima - Perú

Located half way between the Pacific Ocean and 'Parque Kennedy', the central park of Miraflores, a few blocks away from both. Ideal for keeping contact with nature, taking surf lessons and flying in a paraglider over the sea with one of our affiliated schools, or just taking a walk along the seafront. We are in the heart of all that Miraflores has to offer such as restaurants, pubs, shopping centers and handicrafts stores.
