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.

... time to head up north for a meeting with old friends and a flight. The countryside of Peru had been beautiful, so heading out to Cuzco and Lima felt very wired. Big city nothing special. Too much noise and pollution. I missed the serenity of the mountains soon. Luckily both cities were only a short stop on the 48 hour bus ride to Ecuador. There is still so much of Peru I have not seen, I have not explored. However, the journey in this country has brought traveling to a new ...
... 40 years ago. 70,000 people were buried here over the centuries, although many have not been excavated, as the work started to affect the brick foundations. We found the library pretty impressive too. It contains about 25,000 antique texts, some of them predating the conquest. The only annoyance was 2 English girls on the tour who spent the tour of the library saying, "ooooh, it looks like the library at Hogwarts!" and the tour of the catacombs asking, "has anyone ever ...
... pretty. About half way through lunch, we found ourselves chatting with a guy named Simon. He was in town for business from LA, and also on his first visit of Peru. We ended up sharing pisco sours and a plate of seared tuna in a sauce of "tiger milk" and passion fruit. The fish melted in your mouth. It was the second best tuna I've ever had....until dinner.
Stopher and I wobbled along the cliffs and enjoyed the ocean views for a bit, then had to nurse our sunburns for a ...
... a different hotel. Lucky we checked. Lima has 43 districts and our hotel is located in to Miraflora. Each district, ( suburbs) in the city of Lima and each has its own Mayor and administration and we think levies their own taxes. There are approx. 200,000 cabs in Lima have enters and that you need to negotiate a price before the trip. The hotel Antigua Miraflores is a quaint hotel with a lot of character. Our first day here was spent looking around ...
... bar. Pisco Sours were ordered to his specification. They were good, indeed delicious, but different from those in Chile. I am not getting involved in this argument any further.
The restaurant the Mitchells chose is called Canta Rana and is a famous for its seafood. Ironically, it is run by an Argentinean football fan! I might have mentioned Peru is a foodies’ paradise… Anyway, we quickly established by talking to these ...
