We have had a bad experience in Cusco with the hostel, but the one in Lima is totally different: cool staff, decent rooms (do not forget, you get what you pay for, and the price is low, so don't expect fancy stuff), and a very different vibe. The terrace is perfect to chill later in the afternoon, with an array...

I stayed here for 5 nights in a 4 bed female dorm. The dorm also had private bathroom which wasn't very good but this didn't matter as the dorm was right next to the communal bathrooms which were perfectly adequate and not usually too busy. The hostel has a great location in Miraflores about halfway between the coast and Parque...

Stayed there for 3 nights and really enjoyed my stay! I was in a 10 Bed Dorm and it was maybe a bit narrow and hot at night but absolutely bearable. The breakfast was nice (bread and jam, coffee and juice and pancakes :) ). There is a rooftop bar which sells nice beer and drinks. Good hostel to meet...
