We stayed one night for a stopover. Conveniently located close to the airport and the pickup service was fantastic. Friendly, knowledgeable driver waiting at arrival lounge and reception staff helped us book a taxi the following day. But the walls were too thin - the staff was cleaning up the whole night and kept me up with the noises of...

Close to airport, nice friendly staff, value for money. Arranged to pick us up and we're ready waiting at airport for us. Spot on for what we wanted. Room clean & tidy, would recommend to other backpackers and budget travellers

This place was perfect for my stopover in Lima. The driver was waiting for me at the airport as was pre-arranged (that is not always the case, so it's comforting to know they will be there when it's the middle of the night). Both the evening and morning guys at check-in were very friendly and helpful. I didn't see many...

book a 4 psn room and you have a queensize bed, lot of space and just the bathroom you need! The food is pricy (peru prices) but you get a great meal for it! The breakfast is outstanding with 5 types of fruits, fresh fruitjuices, breads cereals, avocado, veggies. Coffee and tea free all day. Really clean, so much value...

Well ... you may not know that Lima is airport with almost non-existing pre-security waiting areas. So if you arrive late night and your flight departs in the morning, what should you do? There is an expensive (and not very good) hotel right at airport or much better choice: Pay Purix Hostel. I stayed there several times and I a...

We stayed here as a one night stop over. The common room was great with TV, internet, pool, fooseball and nice music. The dinner was incredible. Dinner started at 6 and had a range of options. We were there at 10am and unfortunately we couldn't get lunch at the hostel. We were advised by our taxi driver to avoid leaving...

I spent two nights one in a private room, one in the dorm. Overall a good deal on the dorm and fair deal on the private. Lots of fresh fruit for breakfast, no protein however. Stores and such in the area and a great staff and clean. I would return on a stopover for sure.

We booked this place because of how close it was to the airport for our lay over to Cusco. The area is very sketchy but if you are only staying for a few hours or for a lay over its ok. The rooms were decent for a hostal. Only the shower shocked me when I was trying to adjust the...

I decided that I should try and get some good sleep while waiting having a 10 hour layover. So I booked the Pay Purix shuttle service round trip. I arrived in Lima at 2:00am and after getting my bag, there was the Pay Purix driver holding up a sign with my name. Very easy and convenient. Though I forget his...

Had a nice stay here. It's close to the airport which was convenient as I was in and out of Lima pretty quick. Lockers In each room for big bags. Near the street so a little noisy in the morning but with ear plugs it was no problem. Free wifi and breakfast and nice atmosphere. Bruno and staff were very...
