HQ had some of the coolest interior design I've seen in a hostel, and it was much more elegant than most hostels in Lima. Chandeliers in almost every room! For the price, it was certainly worth it. Combine the beautiful neighborhood with the huge kitchen, big buffet style breakfast, and peaceful garden, and you've got a bed and breakfast style...

I stayed at this hostel bc i get a discount for volunteering with an organization they are connected with. I was pleasantly surprised that it was quite cheap, and very nice. I stayed for about a week-- kept extending my stay. I stayed in room 1, a dorm right by the entrance. It was great, but quite loud as people...

There is a lot of potential for a great hostel in this pleasant location. However, it really is a shame that the owners do such a poor job of managing their hostelry. Pros: • A great, quiet location • Mostly pleasant and relaxed atmosphere • Cheaper than a lot of hotels Cons: • Some of the staff are either incompetent...

Villa- Thought I had been scammed as walked in and saw chandeliers and marble floors etc, looked like a five star hotel not a cheap hostel! Was sure they were going to ask me for more money but they didn't :) They even have a garden with hammocks and a bar. Very clean and everything shiny! Lots of places to...

This is a nice, slightly higher class hostel. The staff are really friendly and they organised a tour of the fountains on our first night. However, they aren't good at replying to emails - we had to phone and we were quoted a different price to what we were charged on arrival. They did however honour the price quoted. We...

What a relief it was to arrive in Lima after a 31 hr bus trip and be greeted by name at the door, be offered assistance right away on my next connections (bus or flight), have all my info confirmed on the computer and have friendly people surround me! It was clean, I stayed in the 12 person (14 person?)...

We booked the "superior" double room for two nights. There was so much wrong with this room.... The toilet didn't flush, the sink leaked when turned on, there were ants all over the sink and floor, the showers were freezing, we were given a packet of tissues instead of toilet roll, the sheets on the bed were covered in hair(not...

Positives: The kitchen and outdoor area are really great and well equipped and the neighborhood is safe. Negatives: Not very well organized (they switched my room from a 4bed dorm to a 10 bed dorm because the 4 bed dorm is basically unusable since it has no windows and smells moldy), the hostel is not very clean or secure (anyone...
