Staff were lovely and there is free internet in the lobby which is a great help. Breakfast was simple but ample and location was within walking distance from the hustle and bustle of Miraflores

Good hostel but a little quiet

Location was good and easy to navigate from. The staff were always very helpful and it was a good starting point for my South American holiday. It was a tad too quiet at times though and probably not the best place to meet lots of people.

cheap stay close to Miraflores

As a couple it was not that great, since they only had one private room, but for singles and students travelling on a budget, willing to share a room or sleep in a dorm, this location is great, close to 'lively' Miraflores.

It was near everything we wanted, there was a pool table, a bar, a communal kitchen, a television, book exchange, donation box, tons of activities! I could go on. It was our favorite hotel in Peru!

Poor location if you are looking for a bed in between two connecting flights

This is not very well suited for a couple if you are expecting a certain level of comfort. The hostal is located in Miraflores, and thus 1hr drive from the airport. It is definitely a bad location if you are arriving late into Lima and plan on flying out to Cuzco, Juliaca, or elsewhere the next day. You will loose to much time in the transit. I would recommend a place closer to central Lima, or close to the airport. If you are spending several days in Lima, and you are travelling by yourself, this might be good for you if you are travelling low budget. I believe there are better places to stay in Lima for maybe 10-15 USD more per night.
