3   Chris is a good host Chris is a good host, location on Barranco good, quality of room average.  , age 31 ()
4   Caring staff, good location Staff consulted me on health problems and recommened a excellent medic. ocean view. beautiful barranco. wifi. lockers. keyboard of public computer has passed his best years, and hostel is sometimes loud because of close location to center of barranco.  , age 26, German ()
4   Mostly ok This place was a few blocks from the beach access walkway, which was great because there are not many pedestrian paths that cross over the highway to get to the beach in this area. The room was basic and clean, but the windows didn't operate and one glass pane was broken out which was a little sketchy considering the neighborhood. Staff was friendly enough, helped us hail cabs, but wouldn't let us check in 30 minutes early when we arrived at 12:30 instead of 1. Price was good and they were helpful getting us picked up from the airport. Breakfast and kitchen were small but good enough for basic stuff. This is a quiet place, not a party-hostel.  , age 34 ()
5   Great location Barranco's has a charming interior with lots of wood. It's only one block from Barranco's town center, which is convenient when you're exhausted from hiking. Very close to the water, overlooking beautiful cliffs, but you'll have to walk down an enormous hill to get to the beach. The beach is not very sandy, so was a disappointment compared to California, Hawaii, and Brazil. You can walk along the nice bridge at the beach north into Miraflores. The Miraflores and Barranco beach areas are very active for people-watching. The owner is very helpful planning trips, and the lady/daughter who work at the hostel are very friendly and laid-back. Comfortable beds. Breakfast is included in the mornings. I met some wonderful people from Australia and Brazil at Barranco's. More women than men tend to stay at more expensive hostels like Barranco's (US $10).  , United States ()
5   Clean and Comfortable with Helpful Staff The beds are good, the bathrooms have consistent hot water, and the breakfast is adequate (the kitchen is open if you wanted to cook for yourself). The surrounding neighbourhood is quite scenic and the owner Chris is laid back and a good source of info about the country.  , Canada ()
5  We've been traveling through South America for a couple of months now and this is the best hostel we stayed in. The clifftop location is amazing; our room was bright, airy, and clean with a beautiful view; and Chris, the owner (a fellow Brit -- yay!), went out of his way to make us feel at home and help us plan our next move. We weren't overly excited about visiting Lima and only intended to stay for one night then get the hell out. We ending up staying for three days! For some reason, the guide books suggest backpackers should stay in Miraflores but, from our experience, Barranco is a far nicer area. Tons of nice bars and restaurants, without the hassle of being in the centre. Honestly can't recommend this place highly enough.  ()
5  We had a great time at this hostel and were pleasantly surprised by the beauty and the spectacular views after a long flight. It's tucked into a quiet little corner of Barranco with a view to the ocean. Barranco is a cute area of Lima with a market, nice walks near the beach area, and discos. The owner was friendly and helpful, fluent in English, and helped us with questions we had about domestic flights, getting around, places to visit. The decor of the hostel is beautiful and bright, and it's very clean and safe. Easy access to internet (free!). Nice breakfast too. They were great at picking us up from the airport (on time, friendly), and taxi service seems to be connected with the hostel, so it's reliable. We liked it so much we decided to return on our way back!  ()
5  Definitely the BEST PLACE in Lima. I loved staying there. It is very clean with comfortable beds and friendly people. You can feel like you're at home!  ()
