Pay Purix Backpackers Hostel




The Review

Although Pay Purix Backpackers Hostel - Lima Airport is not in the city centre, it is located near Lima Airport and is perfect if you have an overnight stop and are flying out the next day.

The Location

They can arrange airport pick ups and drop offs at any time, and can advise which is the best time to leave with regard to traffic. The cost of an airport tranfer is reasonable considering there is an entrance fee to the airport parking, and they do stand with a sign with your name on it so it feels like a very personalised service. If you have a few hours to kill and don't want to head into Lima, there is also an outlet shopping mall called "Faucett," which features good discounts and brand names such as Ralph Lauren.

Rooms and Bathrooms

There are a variety of rooms available, including single-gender rooms, which can be important for some travelers. Each room has good-sized lockers, big enough for a full rucksack instead of just valuables. Don't forget your own lock, though. The bedrooms are the typical bunk-bed style but are very comfortable, and your towel and linen are provided. Each bed has access to its own plug sockets, which is really useful and avoids many people trying to use the same plug sockets. The bathrooms are very clean. They have powerful running hot water. Bathrooms are cleaned regularly and are topped up with soap and toilet paper everyday. Street noise can be heard from the rooms but it isn't too bad. Noise around the hostel does travel but there is a cool vibe of mutual respect.

Common Spaces

Pay Purix Hostel has many different common areas. Downstairs there are two, both with comfortable sofas. One of these areas features many flags from around the world, which gives off a very welcoming feel. There is also table football and a pool table. The included breakfast is served down here. It includes tea, coffee, fruit, and bread. Upstairs there is an additional common area, which is also the smoking area. It is quite dusty up there due to the main road, but there is a table tennis/ ping pong table and plenty of seating.


The staff are both bilingual and friendly. There is access to guide books at reception that can be booked in and out. It's very organised. It is easy to talk to staff to arrange transfers and such through Facebook and they reply very quickly.

Suprised me!
Nice staff (speak english). good rooms. good breakfast. airport service (25 soles is ok, other drivers charge 50). roof terrace. surrounding area (but I think no one hits this hostel for exploring Lima). Good stay between flight!

Costs more to get to from LIM than rate per night
DO NOT BOOK. This hostel is a complete disorganized scam. Airport Taxi's from LIM refused fare to this hostel or requested minimum fare of 30 soles ($10USD) each way, which is twice their advertising room rate. Lost Booking -- When I called to inquire how I was suppose to get to and from their hostel, my booking magically disappeared from their records. RESULT -- Spent night (9 hours) at airport. Now fighting them to reverse charges. BOTTOMLINE, Stay away!!!

Great place to stay cheap/fast/fun
stayed there for 2 nights. Its close to the airport 20 sol they pick you up at the airport or will drop you off for your flight. Large facility had a great time and met many great people who were traveling as well. Many movies and TVs free wifi and 2 computers. Free breakfast and each day cost me about $13 USD. Will stay there again its so convenient and they speak english very well. Had a great time watching the soccer games thanks Pay Purix!
I was at Pay Purix for two days, it was very important because it came too late to Lima. I had an amazing welcome to the city of Lima in the hostel to a bar, pull table, foozball, free internet, completely clean bathrooms. breakfast is included!

Unreliable, incompetent, dishonest
Pay Purix left my guests stranded alone in the airport all night and lied to me about why they could not fulfill their obligations. Avoid this hostel like the plague. They are irresponsible and untrustworthy. His brother that was supposed to meet them at the airport decided that he does not want to work at the hostel anymore anyway.
