A viagem começou com alguns probleminhas. O assento do aviao nao reclia. Foi praticamente impossivel de dormir. O hostel é tao bonito quanto as fotos do hostelworld, Porem dei nuito azar.

... but the lookout is the best bit. Dinner time rolls around and we go to a recommended restaurant just a short walk away. We decline the guinea pig, chicken gizzards and other local delights, but we try the Pisco Sour which seems to be the drink of choice and packs quite a punch. Brandy, lemon, bitters, sugar and egg white. Mmm mm. And we have also learnt how to ask for water. Aqua sin gas (no bubbles), por ...
... along the road and grab it. But you can't worried about everything, and the only event we had to worry about on the way in was a huge fire near the hwy that caused a massive delay - 1hr 40mins to get to hostel instead of 40mins. Got there eventually though, into the nice, safe (touristy) neighborhood of Miraflores.

Arrived at the hostel and dumped our big rucksacks in the storage room so we didn't have to carry them around all day. Used the wifi to work out what we wanted t do, having decided that we only wanted to spend 1 day in Lima! Very grey and quite depressing, and don't get me started on the car horns in that city!

TravelPod Member ReviewsHQ Villa Hostel Lima
Hostel was very quiet until a group of americans arrived and took over the communial areas, no one explained this to us or apologised. The hostel was clean but our room was more basic than the pictures shown on the website and was just four drab walls a bunk bed and a chest of draws. The walls seemed paper thin as you could hear everything in our room (room 10). Although it was quiet on the evenings and sleeping was fine. The location is good and very safe with shops and banks nearby. The small buses are safe and very cheap even on the evening. The staff were helpful but there were no organised trips.
