    It was an ok place to stay. Stayed in a double on the roof which as a result of not being part of the main building structure was a bit cold at night and we did not have many blankets. Overall though it was well setup with a decent kitched (two actually) and a nice plan to hang out on the roof (when it was warm) and very helpful staff

    *note since we stayed it looks like they have done some work and as a result it looks alot better

    First two nights in Lima

    This hostel made the first couple of nights in a new country and city so easy. They picked us up from the airport (even waited as our flight was late) and we sped along to the hostel. The staff spoke english well and showed us around after we freshened up. It's in Miraflores which is a fantastic neighborhood and they recommended a walk around the coast as it was a gorgeous day. The showers were hot and they facilities clean, tidy and lots of stuff to do if your not feeling wandering out to the city if you{ve had a long flight. All in all a perfect stay and a warm welcome to Peru. Esmee and Jordan.

    A pleasant stay in Lima

    very nice hostel in center of Miraflores. We booked a double room in advance via internet, so we had no problems with getting it. I traveled with my boyfriend and we got a very nice room with matrimonial bed (and also a bunk bed - but it was only the 2 of us in the room). the window faced to the street, so its quite noisy - but its just the local culture - the use their car horn far too often - doesnt matter if its 5am or midnight. the Bathrooms were shared, but clean, with hot water. the kitchen is quite well equipped, you will find everything you need.. however there is no stove in the main kitchen- only a microwave - but we found out later the stove is upstairs.
    There is also one computer with internet, so sometimes you have to wait for your turn. Wifi has a very good coverage in the whole building. I also liked the books available in kitchen / dining room, which you can borrow and read.
    on Saturday there was a grill party on the roof, which was also a very nice experience
    we were very satisfied with this hostel, and would recommend to anyone who want a decent stay in beautiful part of Lima, near the ocean.

    Great Hostel, Great Location

    This hostel had everything I needed... hot water, a comfy bed, and amazing service by Fernando, Ysrael, and Juan who helped make my stay in Miraflores a good one. Dragonfly is only a 15 minute walk to the parks and beaches of Miraflores, including Larcomar, an outdoor mall perched on the cliffs overlooking the ocean. This location can't be beat, and the airport transfer, especially if arriving late at night, is well worth the $20. I would definitely stay here again.

    An early 4am start for our whole day flight to Peru. Another bumpy flight as we bounced around like something from a film. A horrible landing we had touched down in Atlanta, now for our 2 hour 30 minute wait for our second flight. We bought the biggest sandwich ever bursting with ham and turkey! Onboard our next flight 7 …

    This morning we took it easy and hung around the hostel. Elisha wanted a good rest to try to shake the stomach ache before we headed into the remote Amazon jungle.

    We had cereal again for breakfast then I caught up on the blogs and sorted out some trip planning for the next couple of weeks. Elisha read and also sent emails to catch up on …

    We woke up after a good nights sleep in a nice quiet hostel. Breakfast time, to the kitchen. The cereal was great and it was good to have some normal milk as well. In the kitchen is where the WiFi worked so I looked up things to do in Lima. We got some ideas from trip adviser and the staff at our hostel.

    I got up when the alarm went off at 08:00 but Elisha was still feeling sick and had a stomach ache so stayed in bed for a while. I checked the surf it was ok about 2-3ft and glassy. We had planned on going to Chan Chan museum this morning so I returned the board last night.

    I took a walk into town along the beach and had a look around. …

    We arrived in Lima with zero expectations really, opted to stay in the posher area of Miraflores as it's the safest and it's by the beach. I finally went to the hairdresser and got some new highlights, well sort of, it's an improvement anyway! Spent the afternoon at the beach and had pisco sours at a fancy-looking clifftop restaurant which were …
