TravelPod Member ReviewsHostel Kokopelli Lima
really nice hostel with all facilities a place for backpackers need. Located in very safe and marvellous area Miraflores, close to the coast, the other cosy area Barranco and only a 15 min ride with the modern metrobus to the old city centre. You have to know, during night it could be noisy because of the hostelown rooftop bar and the neighbourhood.

... community. Seriously, you don't want be climbing any fences. They are high walled and topped with electric wiring, barbed wire, spikes, or broken glass. But we certainly feel safe on the streets in the Miraflores area. We can't quite work out why all the heavy duty security. Tomorrow will be a light day - some washing, a bit of walking and then the "meet and greet" with our group tomorrow night. Hey, I got my bag back today. Yesterday I had nothing to wear. Today I don't know what to ...
... of the city merge into the - you guessed it - the dull, slightly less communist looking Miraflores district, the self proclaimed artistic and commercial centre of Lima, where we are staying.
After walking around for a while, searching for the appeal of Miraflores - unsuccessfully - we take a taxi to Museo Larco. As the minutes pass by, and the districts we pass look even more dull and unsafe, we try to assure each other that we are not nervous ...
