Our flight was late, but still managed to check in at 2 am which was wonderful. As per other comments, David the morning receptionist is beyond amazing and really deserves some more recognition. Pros: friendly staff, free breakfast (roll & jam), really good wifi, Kitchen with amenities which I didn't use, 2 bathrooms (one upstairs one downstairs) large lounge area,... More

Nice place with clean rooms and warm showers. Cool selection of movies and great people stayed here when I did. Kitchen was stocked so we were able to cook dinner together. Safe area although a little far from Parque Kennedy. I'm planning to stay here again before I fly home.

Good bed in the private room and the best staff ever! He did everything in his power to help me find my backpack which was left in miami by the airline. Called several times to check, made me feel better by making jokes (real funny ones) and stay positive. When I got my backpack back he arranged our bus to... More

Stayed for three night. My backpack didn't arrive at the airport and they helped me well to get my backpack as fast as possible. We really recommend this hostel. It's at walking distance to Kennedy Park and has a supermarket near. Very friendly staff!

I cannot comment on the quality of the hostel itself as we never actually made it there. We called to make our reservation in Lima at the Ekeko hostel as it had decent reviews in the past. The guy on the phone took our reservation, booked us, and confirmed that we would have airport transportation waiting for us. We gave... More

Stayed here for two nights after arriving in Peru, slept in a 3 bed dorm with a private bathroom. The room was okay, the bathroom would need some renovation though, the colour on the wall / wall plaster was peeling off here and there and the shower door was hard to slide open and closed. We always had hot water... More

We stayed in the private room for four nights. Walking distance (quite a few blocks) to eating places and Kennedy Park. Bathroom was standard but room for improvement but nothing different to regular hostel expectations. The highlight was David - so knowledgeable and helpful. He was worth his weight in gold. Speaks like six languages, knows the city really well,... More

“Really nice place in a safe and nice neighborhood in Miraflores. There are coffee shops and supermarkets nearby and a really helpful staff. We stayed at 3 different rooms, the ones with doubled bed are quite good, however room number 4 (three beds) isn't nice at all: hard mattresses and a bit smelly. overall a great experience.”
