Unfortunately i didn't have a good stay the dorm room was super hot and very noisy as the hostel is on the main road so i didn't get much sleep. The staff however were very friendly and helpful and the airport pickup was good as would be difficult to find on your own. However despite these positives i have to...

We stayed for one night before an early flight out of the Lima airport, knowing that the hostel was close by and hoping to get some more sleep because of that. Not successful at all. The dorm room was suffocatingly hot and stuffy- no air circulation at all, and only one floor fan per room. The fan was only tall...

Dear Kristina, Thank you for your review, it is important to know what travellers think about us and what should we do better. You are right, it was hot and it is not normal in Lima even in summer, but because of the global warming this year it is unbeliable. We are happy that you found the staff great. We...

Unfortunately taxi drivers which should enter to the Lima aiport must pay a tax it is why all taxi driver increase their rates. As example UBER from this hostel to the aiport ears 25 soles. I...

Wonderful place close to the airport, friendly staff and accommodating on our food requirements. Clean rooms and smooth service. Recommend this as a welcoming hub for travellers in Lima. Airport collection recommended even though it's located close to the airport, not that close to walk with luggage and a safer option.

We had a one night layover in Lima and hence stayed at Pay Purix. We wanted something not too far from the airport & inexpensive and this was just that! It was a cool and fun place. We had dinner on our arrival and it was pretty good. My husband especially loved the soup and yummy pineapple juice, though it...

I stayed in this hostel during my layover flying out of Lima. Even though it wasn't far from the airport, which was great, I found that finding a reasonable priced taxi to the hostel was difficult. I had to go out of the airport and haggle and in the end I got a price around 20-25 soles. The hostel was...

This was my first experience at a Hostel. I was part of a mission team of 25 people and we stayed her twice while traveling between U.S. and Lima. Rooms were very clean, beds comfortable and staff friendly, even though we arrived very late at night.

This hostel served its purpose as an overnight stay close to the airport. We had 12 hours to wait. It was cheap, close to the airport (10 mins) and they emailed us as soon as we booked asking if we would like them to arrange an airport transfer for 20 soles each way which we accepted. Dennis, the driver they...
