Liked: Ana ans pack are very kind hosts. Ana is very helpful with anything you need. The area is well equipped, and very cozy. It feels like home. The quiet location was a welcome reprieve from the craziness of Lima.

Disliked: It took a while to get to Miraflores or Lima Centro, but I guess that's a tradeoff for having a quiet location. Nothing else really.

Liked: Anna and their dog paco are great hosts and extremely friendly and helpful. The hostel is cozy and more like a home. The location isn't very central but their are all amenities nearby and the neighborhood is very safe and quiet with several parks close. Getting a bus or cab downtown is still relatively cheap and easy. Overall highly recommended.

Disliked: Nothing really. There is no laundry at the hostel but there are places nearby to do laundry.

Liked: Most of all I liked the coziness of this guesthouse. Anna created a really nice atmosphere, where guests gather in the evenings in the living room talking on a variety of theme and having fun, like one big family. A distinctive feature was the absence of time limits for breakfast - breakfast is waiting for you from morning till evening. Guesthouse is located in safe, beautiful and clean district. Nearby there are two avenues with restaurants and shops. In general I recommend everyone to stay here.

Disliked: Pressure in the water is really weak, but the hot water is always there.

Liked: Fast WIFI and one computer to use. The kitchen was avaiable to use with utensils and big fridge. 25min walk to the coach companies to continue your travels. TV and DVD to watch. 35min bus ride to the city centre. Huge shopping centre which includes a big Supermarket avaiable 10min walk.

Disliked: Unconfortable beds in the dorm, only one toilet and shower combine for entire people here.

Disliked: Shower did not work at all, after a long hot journey and the prospect of another one in the morning that was a real disappointment.

Liked: Firstly, it is in a very safe area, with the property having a locked gate. You are given a key for this gate, so it feels more like home than a hostel.The place has a relaxed feel about it; this is primarily because of Ana and Paco(the dog). As in previous reviews, it is clear Ana is a joy. Helpful and friendly..looking after everyone. It was a relaxing and welcoming environment.

Disliked: The only thing is the location. Although the surrounding area has many places to eat and big, modern supermarkets,as well as the Museo de la Nacion( 4 blocks away), and the Crz del Sur and Tepsa terminals,the traffic in Lima is so busy that it takes time to get anywhere. From Miraflores and Barranco there is the Metropolitano direct into the city, as well as many buses up Av Arequipa.The bus system is a little crazy, but with some spanish it isn´t difficult to fathom it out. Just the size of Lima makes the traffic an issue.
