We booked here for 2 nights with the intention of staying more but left after 2. I don't usually bother writing bad reviews but this place looks as if it was once cared for but has been neglected recently! The double bedroom was very poor but not as bad as the bathroom which was disgusting. Really cannot recommend this place....

I´m still in this hostel right now as I write this. I extented my stay because I really like the place and as a writer it´s a good place to catch up with some work since it´s very quiet here. My first impression of the place was already ok, but as soon as I checked in I realised already how...

Very nice host who will help you in any way he can with tips and tricks around Lima. The hostel lies in a great and safe neighborhood. The bathroom is rather disgusting, but I guess that's to be expected. The dorms are cozy and very colorful. Nice little garden to have a beer at night!

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,...

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...

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...

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...

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,...
