Alejandro the owner was very prompt and ready to help in anything we needed in less than hour.The neighborhood is typical of many others and I would say a bit nicer but it is not Miraflores.
Local supermarket and shops are within a block reach.
Bargain everything if buying artesanias.
Taxi don't pay more than 30 soles about 9.00 dollars regardless of how far you are going.
Tipping is not needed but if great service is offered.. why not give it.
