One of my friends & I travel to Lima & Cusco over the memorial had holiday in June 2012. This was my first experience staying at hostel and got what was expecting. We had a private room at the three locations we stayed (2 in Lima & 1 in cusco). Staff were friendly and the best part was meeting folks...

We stayed 3 times at the flying dog, on diez canseco 117. There are 4 fluying dogs around parque Kennedy. In this one we stayed twice in room 5 (double bed) which opens on to the kitchen so is noisy untill late at night. Good breakfast at the cafe on the square was included and all this for 60 soles...

I often travel to Lima, and over the years Flying Dog has been my backpacker hostel of choice. This is due to several things: the decent rooms, friendly and helpful staff, good facilities and most importantly perhaps - a great included breakfast at one of the outdoor cafes in the Parque Kennedy. I recommend this place, and will no doubt...

I was very sorry that I spent a night there and then for the price of almost 35US$. But it was more like an emergency, that's why accepted. But beginning with the price, the shower was full of ants and there was at least 2 cats running around (problem if you are allergic), the shelves were dusty, no closed, the...

I am here in Lima to study Spanish. I was lucky enough to stumble upon the Flying Dog Hostel. There are a few locations in Lima - I am reviewing one at the corner of Olaya and Diagonal. For s/75 ($29. in 2012), I have my own private room with shower. It's quite roomy. The third floor has a great...

Location is good. Juice bar on the first floor is a blessing and a curse at the same time. It has EXCELLENT lucuma shake, I wish I can have that for breakfast everyday! everything else we had in the juice bar is good too. However, it is busy until late night. The Hostel offers breakfast voucher to the cafe across...

Location is central Miraflores with Kennedy Park just right outside. Personally I find that this place needs significant improvement. If you don't spend much time at the hostel, I suppose you wouldn't mind where you sleep. Mirabus tour bus service are just right outside. Things to improve: 1. Remove stray cats from the premises - the place and room smells...

There are 3 flying dogs around parque Kennedy. Maybe the 1 with "backpacker" in the name is ok but the other 2 are not. Checked into the 1 on Lima st - the 1 in the lonely planet. There was a skylight that could not shut so lots of noise and light and a drip only for the shower. We...

We checked in at the one next to starbucks. Location is great, everything else sucks.

Great team in a great hostel. There's a bar, a pool table, a living room and the rooms and bathrooms are clean enough. Can't ask for more.
