I have stayed at Dragonfly for a month. Beds are comfortable, staff is super friendly and always helpful. Breakfast with crepes, bread, jam, coffee and juice good way to start your day. A big terrace and bar cosy for hangout. Good WiFi all over the hostel. I liked it so much and felt home that came back after my trip...

I stayed in both a four bed and eight bed dorm, and the latter was a little too cramped when the room was full, but it wasn't a problem as really only slept in there, and the bunks...

I stayed at Dragonfly Lima 3 nights in total. Dorm rooms are big and have lockers. The staff was really friendly and were very helpful and speak both english and spanish! The showers are hot and one of the best I've had. Breakfast pancakes were awesome!

Going up the stairs and being welcomed by a friendly smiling receptionist. That's how you want enter a hostel. Got a small tour of the hostel, cause it is small. But very good and functional. Good little kitchen and big rooftop, with a bar and some very good craft beers. The dorm is good, not big, but you don't feel...

The terrace is perfect to chill later in the afternoon, with an array...
