The good thing was the bed was comfortable and the lockers were huge and you only need your own padlock. Breakfast was 2 buns with jam and butter, coffee and juice. Kitchen and fridge available for you to use at any time. Bad thing is, the toilet wasn't really clean, i saw a cockroach 1 of the nights. The staff...

I was disappointed that the photos on the website were nothing like the room I was given. My room was much grubbier and the bedding was stained and very unappealing. When I needed to leave early in the morning, the front door was locked and no one was to be found. However, the staff was pleasant, the shower was lovely...

Location is excellent, close to parque Kennedy as well as metropolitan bus station "Ricardo Palma", supermarket 100m away and lots of banks, coffee shops etc. Now onto the problems...we had a triple private room and the beds were uncomfortable with pillows that felt like a sack of potatoes. Room smelt like old people and dirty, shower had little pressure and...

This hostel is perfectly located in the heart of Miraflores. It's not too expensive, considering prices in Lima. It's pretty basic though. You have to ring the doorbell each time you won't to get in which is great for security but can get pretty annoying when no one answers...

This place would be all right if it just focused on what it is, rather than what it thinks it ought to be. It's a basic, cheap and rather grubby backpackers hostel in the heart of Miraflores, and as far as that goes, it's great. You don't expect much for $6 (dorm room) and by God, you don't get it....

They need some serious improvements in this hostel. It's in a good central location close to everything you need, showers are good, some staff could speak English, they have a balcony area on the rooftop...and that's pretty much all positive about this place, everything else is seriously unacceptable. Rooms are not clean, sheets and pillows smell mouldy, broken power points...

I book ths hostal in advance by internet. The room on the photo look nice: clean, enough space, double bed, good bathroom. When I arrived I must wait a couple of hours before I got the room. My room was very small with 1 etage bed. The room was dark, dirty and no good smell, not really hot water. Wifi...

First the pictures shown on Internet the reality was quite different.Rooms have ciment floors and the shower was not working properly. They have a decent price including breakfast but two white bread buns and a little bit of butter and strawberry jam every single morning is not the type of breakfast I expected. When I asked for more coffee the...
