This hostel has the most amazing location right in between Larcomar, the beach and the centre of Miraflores, 5 min walking to any of the sides. It is a safe and nice house, really good price. But it does need more repeating, taking care of and cleaning. The staff is nice. I wish the owner would put a bit more...

Stayed for 3 days and was pleasantly surprised. Great location in Miraflores, walking distance to Larcomar and super close to the beach. Quique, the owner was great, made us feel at home immediately like if we knew him forever. Definitely a place to recommend!

We were actually roaming around Lima trying to find hostels with no luck. Until a random door was open to a bright blue home. In reality it was a hostel. The owners were very welcoming and let me and my friend just walk right in. This personally was my favorite hostel throughout Peru/Ecuador. The bed situation was perfect for us...

This is the most disgusting hostel I have seen in south america. They didnt change the bed sheets and they had stains on them. The toilet didnt flush and no water in the bathroom. Bed sucked. It smells mouldy and common areas where disgusting aswell.
