book a 4 psn room and you have a queensize bed, lot of space and just the bathroom you need! The food is pricy (peru prices) but you get a great meal for it! The breakfast is outstanding with 5 types of fruits, fresh fruitjuices, breads cereals, avocado, veggies. Coffee and tea free all day. Really clean, so much value...

Well ... you may not know that Lima is airport with almost non-existing pre-security waiting areas. So if you arrive late night and your flight departs in the morning, what should you do? There is an expensive (and not very good) hotel right at airport or much better choice: Pay Purix Hostel. I stayed there several times and I a...

We stayed here as a one night stop over. The common room was great with TV, internet, pool, fooseball and nice music. The dinner was incredible. Dinner started at 6 and had a range of options. We were there at 10am and unfortunately we couldn't get lunch at the hostel. We were advised by our taxi driver to avoid leaving...

I spent two nights one in a private room, one in the dorm. Overall a good deal on the dorm and fair deal on the private. Lots of fresh fruit for breakfast, no protein however. Stores and such in the area and a great staff and clean. I would return on a stopover for sure.

We booked this place because of how close it was to the airport for our lay over to Cusco. The area is very sketchy but if you are only staying for a few hours or for a lay over its ok. The rooms were decent for a hostal. Only the shower shocked me when I was trying to adjust the...

I decided that I should try and get some good sleep while waiting having a 10 hour layover. So I booked the Pay Purix shuttle service round trip. I arrived in Lima at 2:00am and after getting my bag, there was the Pay Purix driver holding up a sign with my name. Very easy and convenient. Though I forget his...

Had a nice stay here. It's close to the airport which was convenient as I was in and out of Lima pretty quick. Lockers In each room for big bags. Near the street so a little noisy in the morning but with ear plugs it was no problem. Free wifi and breakfast and nice atmosphere. Bruno and staff were very...

As most of the reviews say this place is average. It's got clean beds, hot shower, lockers and free breakfast but that's about it. There is a bar where you can buy food between certain hours (I didn't try anything though). Location is the selling point, only 10 min taxi drive from airport but also a negative. It is a...

The hostel is good, nice beds, bathroom and lockers but nothing more. The strenght is because is really close to the airport (Its only worth it if you are going just for sleep). Besides that, it's not a very good location, I didn't feel safe. The staff is really friendly.

Spent 10/15 mins in taxi trying to find this place probably more taxi's fault but still barely signed. Room was alright one one towel for 2 people and no English when checking in late. Amazing movie selection for long waits to fly out. Great kitchen facility
