Hostelz.com's Review
Hostel Kokopelli is a comfortable and modern hostel in the heart of the Miraflores district of Lima. Although it is poorly signposted from the outside, once you get through the main doors you will find a hidden gem of the Lima backpacking world.

The Location

As with most of Lima's hostels, Hostel Kokopelli is located in the modern and safe area of Miraflores. The hostel is surrounded by bars and restaurants offering international cuisine to rival anything in South America. The Larcomar shopping centre on the Malecon offers beautiful views of the coastline and is only a ten-minute walk away. The main tourist sights are located a forty-minute bus ride away, but as these are to be found in an unsavoury part of the city, it is advisable that in the evenings you stay in the perfectly safe district that surrounds the hostel.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The dorm rooms are relatively spacious and feature wooden bunk beds with very comfortable mattresses. The rooms are cleaned on a daily basis. Huge lockers are built into the wall and will fit all your belongings regardless of how big your suitcase is. There are two showers on the second floor, both of which deliver hot water at excellent pressure.

Common Spaces

The main common space is the bar area on the roof terrace with a large plasma TV. The area is quite spacious, featuring comfortable leather seats and even a foosball table. The bar offers drinks at a similar price to the local bars and also offers food but this is restricted to only pizzas. There is a separate Wi-Fi network that services the roof terrace, although the connection is a little temperamental.

The kitchen is located on the top floor and there is a feeling that the staff don't want you to use it, due to it being very poorly stocked with cutlery, pots, and pans. The area is also very small, meaning that if there is any more than a couple of people in there at any given time then cooking would be impossible. On the third floor are two computers with internet access that are for communal use. The hostel offers a tour-booking service in the main reception area on the ground floor.

Summary

Hostel Kokopelli -- with its comfortable beds and excellent roof terrace -- is a lively and friendly hostel perfectly located in the best area of Lima. It is an excellent option to spend a few nights on a visit to Lima.

5   Great place -- definitely highly recommended! Just stayed there for 2 nights and loved it! Really great laid-back atmosphere. Friendly and always helpful staff. Also, thanks a lot for the convenient airport pick-up! Hostel has a nice rooftop terrace with bar. Decent breakfast is included and is served in a café two blocks away until 1 pm. (Only one minor issue: my shower was cold when I used it -- don't know if it's always that way). Great place -- definitely highly recommended!  ()
5   Nothing beats this hostel! Since I recommended this place to some TB, and heard good comments, I decided to stay over there for a weekend and enjoy that too. It was great. The owners are very kind and helpful. I do like the rooms, and all the locations are clean. There is a terrace where you can enjoy BBQ, parties, and drinks. The best part is that this place is well located, in the heart of Miraflores, near everything. Oh, and do not forget about the breakfast. It is included and very tasty. Oh, and you can get it until 1 p.m. yeah!  , Australia ()
