Reasonable prices for what you get - clean, quiet rooms, friendly staff, free fast Wi-Fi, hot water, nice common areas overlooking Parque Kennedy, simple breakfast, help with organizing airport transfer. Really good value.

Placed in the best possible locaion in Miraflores, fully equipped, and very comfortable. This hostel allows you to experience this part of the city like you should. We stayed in a private room and it was great!

Stayed here for two nights in June 2015. The hostel is fairly basic but clean. Staff are quite friendly. The hostel has a bar and kitchen facilities. Free breakfast is included which was very handy. The staff can help with organising day tours or transport to your next destination. Only complaint I would have is that the bar was very...

We stayed for 5 nights. The hostel is in a great location within the Miraflores district. We stayed in two different rooms on our stay - the deluxe queen room (overlooking the park, with en-suite, TV and air conditioning), and a twin with private bathroom (no windows). Both rooms were fine, the deluxe obviously being the pick of the bunch...

I stayed here on a short layover between Lima and Panama city. The hostel is clean and the man at the desk was able to get us into a room when other hostels were booked out. I would stay here again if I return to Lima. The gentleman that worked overnight was not very helpful and seemed he forgot to...

This hostel is clean and quiet and right next to Parque de Kennedy. Great internet and nice staff. However, I would have liked a more welcoming decor. The red faux leather furniture in the common areas makes the place feel like a cheap cafe.

Location is excellent. However we were in a 5 bed dorm but the whole floor used the bathroom in our room (it must have been the only one). There was a consistent stream of people during the night walking through the room to use the bathroom which I felt was a bit unfair when we paid for a 5 bed...

Nice rooms and staff, fridge for common use which is always good. Breakfast vouchers for very nice food place. Good showers although no towels or laundry service. Amazing location in the beautiful miraflores, less than walking distance from the lovely parque Kennedy surrounded by many food places, bars and shops

Spent a night here with my husband while backpacking around Peru. The rooms are cheap, clean and they have really nice hangout spots all around the hostel, including a nice bar. The staff here is very friendly and helpful. We were having trouble purchasing bus tickets to Cusco and they helped me with every step to make sure I got...
