11 November 2010 Anthea would recommend this property

Liked: Jeremy is really friendly and very helpful and would probably plan your whole trip to South America for you if you wanted. There is wifi, free basic breakfast and it is in an area with plenty of supermarkets and restaurants.

Disliked: It is a bit far from the main attractions but a taxi only costs 3 or 4 USD so it is not a problem.

Liked: It's great value as cost.Receptions are very nice, very friendly, and try to help your travel info.Just make sure, because you will stay a regular house, there is no sign. You must prepare the actual address number to tell a taxi at airport.

Disliked: The shower is so weak and not hot so much. Because of guest house, you need to go to a down stair, and ask receptions for questions.

Liked: Very safe place, and the actual guesthouse is so chill, and homy. Jo and Jeremy were the save for us in Lima, after a tough start, and we are so happy we ended up there! Their English is really good, and they are so helpful! Help you with taxis and where to find different things. The area is also full of places to eat and supermarkeds. We wanna (and hope) to go back!!

Liked: It is really nice and homely and the 2 young people that run it are great and super helpful with whatever you need. It looks and feels more like a house than a hostel, with open kitchen and lounge and movies and stuff. great place to meet other travellers too.

Disliked: it is a bit far from the centre and from miraflores, but not outrageously far. a 4 dollar taxi ride. there are good food shops close by though.

Liked: Staff are seriously lovely, it feels more like staying at a friend's house than at a hostel. I was knackered from my journey so it was great to come in, have a cup of tea and basically make myself at home. A big recommendation!

Disliked: Bit hard to find (no sign on the street or anything). Also, sometimes the staff aren't around when you might need them. These are MINOR complaints about what has been one of my favourite ever hostels.

11 July 2010 Maria would recommend this property

Liked: The owners, Joanna and Jeremy, are amazing. They are so nice, give great advice, and go out of their way to make you comfortable. I would definitely recommend staying with them.

Disliked: Cab drivers have a difficult time finding the place, but since the cabs in Lima don't use meters, it wasn't much of a hostel.
