We had a great time in this hostel. Staff were really friendly and the facilities were well maintained: useful kitchen, clean bathrooms, comfortable rooftop terrace... At that time they were renovating an area, but the rest of the hostel worked normally. I totally recommend it.

I am really pleased to have found the Dragonfly Hostels (also in Cusco). What I like most is the super-friendly and helpful service, warm atmosphere and that the hostels are quite small & cozy. In Lima they have a wonderful roof terrace.

Great place to stay in Lima. They have good choice of craft beers. Ask for Lima Pale Ale, it is by far the best one. Rooftop terrace to chill-out, great staff. Good location close to Miraflores bar area or to beach. Happy to come back.

Friendly hostel with a great range of craft beer and a good roof terrace where you can relax. Nice staff and a good big Kitchen. Internet is good and it's in a good area, lots of places to eat and go out nearby. You get a discount if you stayed at the one in cusco too.

I really loved both places in Lima and Cusco: friendly english speaking staff, clean and quiet dorms. At Lima you can drink cocktails at the rooftop terrace and in cusco you are able to sit at the patio and meet other travellers. There is a kitchen available to make your own dinner. Blankets available at cusco where it can be...

I can not recommend this place more highly! The rooms, bathrooms and common areas were clean, the staff was very helpful, the atmosphere was really fun (the roof top terrance is really wonderful), the location is perfect... If your travelling through Lima, this is definitely the place to stay

Breakfast is - juice/tea and toast basically and that is the standard in Peru fyi. Bring ear plugs because the lounge is right by that...

This hostel was a great way to start our journey in Peru. It was a nice size, not too big, and had a great rooftop bar which was a great place to meet others. Well located and in a very safe neighborhood, so easy to walk to great restaurants nearby. I would be wary about using the transfer service, I...

I stayed at the Dragonfly Hostel for my first two nights in Lima on April 21-23. Upon arriving at the hostel, we were greeted by a girl working at the main desk. She was very friendly and professional. She showed us to our room and gave us a small tour of the hostel. The hostel has a small kitchen on...

Dragonfly has a small kitchen but the upstairs roof terrace makes up for the lack of space. The beds were big, bathrooms were clean and staff were helpful. Only downside is the lack of toilets! Overall, we would recommend staying here.
