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... More

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... More
