Liked: Staff were super friendly and helpful!

Disliked: Most things... Breakfast was a joke and I didn't particularly appreciate the free long black hair that came with it every morning. The place looks like it could use a really good clean and fresh paint. The walls were paper thin and I could hear every conversation as well as the constant thumping of everyone walking past. The shower was luke warm, but this is probably more apparent as it was winter and cold when I was there. There was also no heating at all, so it was freezing inside.

Liked: Nice place, eco friendly and recycling, staff are really nice, free breakfast is pretty good, hot and good showers!

Disliked: Some really noisy people - there's signs saying not to make noise after 12.30 but this wasn't enforced. Nothing earplugs wouldn't fix.

Liked: It was in an accessible part of town, but it was also removed from the main street so that you could get a good night's sleep. The people at the desk were very helpful and friendly. No matter the time of day and type of question or problem they offered a solution.

Disliked: Nothing at all!

Liked: Focus on being environmentally conscious. Location. Free working wi-fi.

Disliked: Was not aware that they did not accept credit cards upon check-out. The advertised "activities" were pretty non-existent, though the staff was quick to provide recommendations.

Liked: Its an excellent location. You are right on Kennedy and its a safe area. The hostel is committed to its values and its a cool place. Very chilled. Great WiFi too. Although the dorms are small (its a small hostel) they are clean and comfortable with good lockers. With the location you wont be there much anyway. A nice place to stay I would go there again. the showers are hot and the breakfast although small is fine.

Disliked: It was low season so in high season it might be a bit of a squeeze for the bathroom as there is only one. But its clean and the showers are hot. I didnt have a problem but might vary when the hostel is full. Its still a great place.

Liked: Great hostel, very clean and tidy, comfy beds. Staff were extremely helpful and knowledgable. Good location near restaurants, shops & supermarkets etc. Kitchen, good wifi, cable tv. Will stay here again

Disliked: Breakfast really lets the place down, its the smallest breakfast I have had in South America (1 roll) and to buy more at the hostel is very expensive. Towels cost $5 Soles to hire. You also only get 1 small thin blanket on the bed.

Liked: The staff were so kind to me! they help with my trip, searching for restaurants, and some tours arround Peru. they have just remodel the entire place, so it's really nice. a lot of recycled decor like the bathtub/sofa! you can walk two blocks from there to Miraflores Park and return at any time, becouse the area is really secure. the breakfast was really good! i'll return soon at the end of my trip for sure.

Liked: I loved the location!!! Close to everything from restaurants, bars, bus stops, grocery and more. The staff is amazing, always friendly and willing to help with anything, speak great English. Even the owner is very friendly and sometimes bar-tends! Great roof top entertainment area for tanning, relaxing or simply having drinks. Unlimited Wi-Fi which was great for work and play. Great atmosphere and felt very safe! I loved that it was in a relatively quite area but still had a homey feeling because of the free lounge area where i could relax and watch t.v. or have use of the kitchen at any time to prepare meals. The breakfasts- always delicious with fresh fruit juice served daily! Lockers- had good locker size, just take your own lock and your set.

Disliked: NOTHING, it was Perfect!!!! :)

Liked: the location is convenient

Disliked: There was one bathroom shared between 3 large dorm rooms, which was very inconvenient. There is barely enough room inside the rooms for everyone and their luggage. The rooms are small and should only have four beds but they crammed 6 in there.

Liked: Very relaxed atmosphere and unique space. Great computers too!

Disliked: While it was great to have a change from bread & jam, it would be nice to be able to chose between the daily creation or just bread & spreads (in case you don't feel like an onion bap for breakfast for example)! Also coffee would be nice too since only herbal teas were available.
