          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.

          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.

          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.

          I arrived in Lima looking forward to eating - many backpackers I met told me that it is the food capital of South America. Having been travelling for just over 3 months now, and having eaten arguably more than my fair share of questionable meals (and yes, I do realise this reflects my tight budget and poor decision making rather than Bolivian/ …

          This morning, we wake up at 4:45 to catch our water taxi back to the mainland. No time for breakfast, it gives us just enough time to throw on some clothes and do some last minute packing. It was a special touch when our guide, Josef picked us up in a large red truck first thing in the morning. Less special when he picked up all his friends along …

We wandered farther down the beach and found a sandy area, and played toss there for a little while. We soon realized how burnt we were getting and headed for shade. The rest of the day mainly consisted of wandering Miraflores, having beers at the hostel and meeting some more people. After sunset, we heading for some ...
