Flying Dog Backpackers Hostel is a great choice for a stay in Lima. Free perks include WiFi and continental breakfast daily between 8 AM and 10 AM.
Great Location & Clean Rooms, but Disrespectful StaffPros: The beds were very large and comfortable, the showers were fantastically hot, and the hostel was right in the middle of Miraflores, a beautiful neighborhood with lots of delicious food.Cons: Aside from the owner, the night staff were abysmal!!! First they put a new traveler into one of our already occupied beds... And when we complained the girl working the front desk said "that's not my f**king problem, you need to watch your own bed". Then for the following two nights when all guests had fallen asleep (by 11pm) the staff held a loud party until 2 am, and were insistent that it's not their problem that the guests want to sleep. This hostel has posted quiet hours of 10pm-7am and IS NOT a party hostel. Why the hell were the staff partying loudly right next to all of the dorms? To top it off, they locked one of the TWO bathrooms in the entire hostels for 30 min prior to cleaning it... Why not just lock the door when you actually begin cleaning?! I nearly pissed myself waiting.
