The hosts are very helpful and friendly. the hotel seemed to be extremely busy, especially with locals. and they seemed to be very happy there. We on the other hand could not share their feelings. I must admit that I feel that the offered quality is very poor. the room we stayed in is in urgent need of CLEANING (a... More

We actually had booked to stay at the Hospedaje San Antonio but got driven to this hostal from the airport and were not given any explanation on arrival why we had been moved to this hostal instead of San Antonio (which I had booked long ago before our arrival with many email confirmations) - as we were pretty tired by...

There are several reasons why I don't reccomend this hostal: 1)We booked their airport pick up, but nobody showed up, 2)The room was very cold and hot water didn't work properly 3)We had a room just above the reception, and that means noise all night long Otherwise, the hotel is in a good and safe position near a beautiful, quiet...

Hostal Pukara is more like a hotel than a hostal. The rooms are all ensuite and are clean and comfortable. It was a delight for us to be able to get away from the hustle and bustle of Lima, an opportunity offered by this delightful hostal. It is situated on a very quiet street in a residential district and yet... More

The room itself is a little below average - being very old but the bed was comfy enough and wifi was good. Unfortunately my room was located immediately above the reception area and it was terribly noisy throughout the time I was staying there. In fact, one morning got woken up by someone singing at the top of his voice... More

Hostal Pukara is more then a hostal, more of a small, simple hotel. It its located in Lima, Peru At 130 Gonzales Larranaga st. San Antonio Miraflores. The choice of me staying here was because my trip with Intrepid Travel uses this location as start of the tours of Peru. Good location as its in a safe location and good... More

Firstly, I would qualify my following comments with 2 observations. Even half decent accomodation in Lima is generally fairly expensive, and the standard of hostel relative to price is fairly low. That said, i'm struggling to find enough positives to recommend Pukara. Our pick up from the airport was so late we had to nudge them along with a phone... More

Good relaxed and quiet location, friendly staff, limited English, very basic rooms. They're doing ongoing work at the place so may get better room wise.
