Liked: Pretty rad joint, definitely recommend. Super nice staff, sweet little bar that's affordable and my room was cleaned exceptionally well every day. Really just nothing to complain about

Disliked: Only thing I didnt like was that you can't bring in your own alcohol, but that's not too terrible overall.

Liked: everything. location was awesome. the building itself was unbelievable ...its amazing that you are in a hostel but in a 1800´s king of mansion at the same time. i found many nice people in it travelling from different parts of the world. wifi was reliable and bar was fun.

Disliked: there was some street noise but nothing to be worry about. you are in the center of lima and a bit of noise is understandable. lima is a very nice and interesting city.

Liked: Travel desk located IN the hostel was great - I went on a sandboarding tour which I probably wouldn't have got round to organising if it wasn't there. Bar area was nice to hang out in, and beds were big and comfortable.

Disliked: If you wanted to have a warm shower you had to do it before 10am - the hot water had run out by about then. Wifi access was sporadic, and the location is a very noisy area, especially if you have a room at the front of the hostel. However, none of this really impacted negatively on my stay. When you see some parts of Lima you'll understand how lucky you have it!

Liked: Clean bathrooms.

Disliked: This place is an OK location if you really want to be NEAR downtown. However the noise at night is unacceptable - and it is not even a party hostel. We stayed 3 nights and tried to sleep with ear-plugs. With high ceilings and stone/wooden floors noise carries and there is no attempt by management to stop people having TVs on at 1-30a.m. with the volume up and door open - even when we have already complained about the noise. The kitchen consist of one 2-ring burner, fridge and a microwave. No toaster. All this shared between 100 beds. The staff during the day are OK, but at night there was no attempt to ask people to be quiet - even up until 4-00 am and after we had asked. The night manager was particularly unhelpful and rudeIf you are planning to stay in Lima, choose somewhere else.
