Kind and helpful staff. Not a lot of energy- just people sitting on phones. Single bed room was fantastic. Bathrooms kind of gross (toilets that don't flush). Breakfast decent (had eggs). Location loud but right in town.
Thought Lima wasn’t a place to stay so got a bus from huaraz and stayed one night here to fly out the next morning. Private room was amazing modern making us wished we stayed longer. Good water pressure and temperature. Organised a in house taxi driver to take us at 5 in the morning to the airport. Only giving it 4 as we didn’t get a great chance to explore as we were there for around 10 hrs.
Perfect location, safe neighborhood and amazing architecture! It has free BF which is basic but good and a guest kitchen if you want to cook your own meal. There is also a lovely terrace where you can chill after a busy day in the city.
The hostel staff was really nice, since the minute I got there everyone was really welcoming. Special thanks to Sergio the manager who had a lot of great advice and to Sandra who helped with a few problems I had.
I didn’t have much time so I hired one of the hostels drivers, Carlos, to visit the city’s main attractions, which I must say it was a great choice. I can’t speak Spanish so it was extremely helpful to have someone that could show me around Lima, was really knowledgeable and gave me great advice on where to eat and places to visit.
The room was nice and clean , so were the bathrooms and pretty much the whole place. I would definitely recommend it and Im sure Ill be back next time Im in Peru.
It's a nice athmosfere in the hostel and we enjoyed the pool billiard and table football. The rooms with private bath were really great! We would have liked some heating; size of rooms however are so big that likely it's difficult to heat the room. Yet... if there were heating (or temperature during your stay is OK) this hostel were even better. Miraflores is a better location regarding restaurants etc, but this location is walking distance from downtown Lima (one day yet is enough for downtown; add 1 day for Miraflores and Lima is covered)
My friend and I spent one night in this hostel on our way to Cusco. The help could not of been more welcoming and helpful. From the minute we entered....mind you your first impression might be skewed as the curb appeal is a little off. We even had our doubts as we entered but they were dashed away as we climbed the stairs and the warmth of the hostel began to reveal itself. There we were meet by 2 very charming hosts...Sergio and Santiago. They quickly dispelled any hesitation we had about staying there. They were both very helpful in answering any and all questions we had, guiding us on possible activities to keep us busy for our stay.
One of our choices was the ceviche making class we took with Santiago. Highly recommend it. He is an excellent teacher and a good ceviche chef. It was a great and delicious way to spend the afternoon.
The rooms were clean and adequate for our stay. There’s plenty of room at the hostel to spread out and many interesting things to do.
Of course it is a very old building so don’t expect it to be quite...between the city noise and the other guests. But it is what it is....just sit back and enjoy.
