Although the quality is not the same as a hotel, the value is just right for the location and accommodation. Within walking distance to the Metropolitano Benavides Station and Kennedy Park as well as Larco Ave, where you'll find out plenty of nightlife. The owner and staff treated us cordially and all recommendations around Miraflores were extraordinary, the owner (Arturo)... More

I stayed there last september and unfortunately have not been able to write a review until now.

I had stayed there several times when passing through Lima and had never had a probrem. The owner would repeatedly ask... More

The hostel itself is a comfortable place with a nice mixture of local and international travelers: Clean rooms, hot water,... More

I stayed at Lion during our last visit to Lima in June. Excellent location, in the heart of Miraflores, close to lots of shopping and restaurants. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly; they helped us to move around and gave us great recommendations. The hostel is very clean and neat.

This place was recommended by the passenger next to me on the flight to Lima, because I was looking for a inexpensive hostel in a good location that wasn't known for partying in the hostel. The three-story hostel is relatively easy to find - the flags help. It's within walking distance to grocery stores and Miras Flores restaurants and nightlife.... More
