Extemely clean, well maintained, recently updated, old bulding in a very convenient location in Central Lima. The owner used quality materials in renovating the place. Free coffee and tea all day. Kudos to the reservation desk employee, Luciana, who spent a lot of her time assisting all guests in explaining how to get anywhere from the hostel's location and particularly for assisting me in locating where I could buy a specific item. She went above and beyond being helpful. Actual hot and cold water in the shower and sinks in the bathroom - a first for me in a Peruvian hostel. The owner was very pleasant and helpful and showed that he is interested in contiually improving the hostel by asking my opinion on how to improve guest's experiences at the hostel. Guests receive dining information as well as a map of the Central Lima area. The hostel is located near a large mall with a supermarket and is very close to a bus stop.

Hostels. What are they?

Way more than just a cheap place to sleep, hostels are a social way to travel and meet like-minded people. Common areas like shared kitchens or games rooms are great ways to swap tips, tricks and travel stories with backpackers from all over the world.

Hostels have come a long, long way since the first youth hostel opened in 1912. From budget 'crash-pads' to five-star 'poshtels', today, hostels are for everybody, so whether you'd prefer a bed in a shared dorm or your own private room, you'll find most hostels are cheaper than a local hotel and far more fun.
