TUPAC - Lima Airport Hostel
Ranked #69 of 229 Hotels in Lima
Reviewed 4 July 2016

It is called an airport hostel but it is about 15-minute drive from the airport, even in the middle of the night. We arranged an airport pickup but no-one was there when we arrived and we had to make some calls and texts to get someone to pick us up, over 30 mins later.
There was a disco playing very loud somewhere nearby, and by the time it had stopped a rooster was crowing from an adjacent rooftop, so we did not get much sleep. Management was a bit helpful, allowing us to swap a double for two singles a bit further from the noise at no extra cost, but it did not help much.
The interior of the hostel was fine, the breakfast fairly minimal, the area not one that merited much wandering around.
In retrospect, it was, in fact, the worst hostel we stayed in during three weeks in Bolivia nad Peru.

I don't regularly stay in hostels when I travel these days but did in this case as I just needed somewhere close to airport as was arriving around 1AM and then leaving again in time for a noon flight. This hostel fit the bill for an overnight stay - it even included a small breakfast in the morning. The card machine wasn't working when I was there though so I had to pay in US cash. I would say this place is ok for the airport but wouldn't recommend here as your base for exploring Lima or for more than 1 night.

Room Tip: Lower floor with large bag as no lift

We stayed here in between flights entering Lima and heading to Cusco. We chose this place as an inexpensive stay for the short sleep, close to the airport. The young man working was very nice and helpful. The room itself was a let down compared to the image on this site and others. The common areas were alright and the wifi worked there. It also worked, a little slowly, in our 3rd floor room. We didn't stay long enough to experience some of the things other reviewers have written about-good or bad. After an exhausting day of travel, I wish we would have chosen something a little nicer. Overall, it served its purpose for a quick, economic sleep.

This is a nice hostel located in a not so nice part of town. It is very close to the airport and about a 5 minute drive to a very large mall. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Definitely a great place to stay right after arriving to Peru or right before departing.

Highly recommended hostel. Mercedes and Chris are wonderful hosts and made me feel very welcome. They offer a nice breakfast of toast with jam,fruit, orange juice and coffee. Very clean rooms with attached bathrooms. Very helpful staff with taxi bookings and things to do. I stayed here for 2 nights after flying to Lima and for 2 nights before flying out and would definitely return. Close to the airport for quick and easy travel

We stayed here two nights and would highly recommend Posada de Rey 2! It's a great no-frills, family-run hostel with clean rooms and awesome service. We really liked the fact that the rooms have attached private bathrooms. The staff was very helpful. Whether it was arranging a cab to take us to/from the airport, exchanging money, recommending things to do in the city, letting us keep luggage in storage room etc, they were nothing short of pleasant to work with. The hostel is probably most ideal for students/backpackers but we even enjoyed our stay as a family of four adults.

We were so lucky that we had 2 nights at Mercedes and Chris. Therefore we saw the neighbourhood and tried the barbecue twice! Really nice fries and both the hamburger and the sausage is recommendable!
We'll go back!
