Relatively nice hostel very close to the airport.

Posted Jul 13, 2015
Pros: Close to the hotel, and the staff was very friendly
Cons: Wifi was pretty slow and didn't really work on the 4th floor.
Location: Not much to do near by, and the location was a bit away from anything really interesting, but a taxi ride downtown was not very hard to arrange
Great experience, Frank and Paulino were both amazing to us. They helped us with anything we needed, and showed us around the area. They also had a taxi who they frequently used and was very nice. The breakfast was pretty simple, an egg and some bread, and the rooms were pretty basic, but overall very good.

Convenient to airport but in a bad area

Posted Jun 9, 2015
Since our plane got in very late at night we were thankful to have this hostel close by. We don't recommend paying for an airport pickup because the driver did not leave to get us until we found a pay phone and called the hostel (defeating the purpose of a pre-arranged pickup). The staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfast was lovely. We enjoyed it in an outdoor courtyard. The room did not feel secure, as it had sliding windows. Also, the pillows were bumpy. On the other hand, the room was clean and included a towel. The hostel is located in an area close to the airport in an infamous Lima slum. Stay here if you want to be close, but don't tell your mother, and come and go by taxi.

Nice, clean hostel - ugly location

Posted May 14, 2015
Pros: Cleanliness / comfort / price - Wifi worked great even on the 3rd floor.
Location: The location isn't the greatest - don't expect to walk around at night or leave to get anything. We only left once we were going back to the airport.
We had about 4 hrs before our next flight and wanted a clean, cheap place to crash and shower before our next flight. I had read previous reviews about this place being perfect for that and it is. The rooms are clean and well kept, the shower is small (any really tall people may have to crouch down - I'm 5'6" and was fine), but has hot water and again is clean. I wish I would have booked the taxi through them b/c outside the airport we were being charged 45-60 soles, while they quoted 30. The one negative is the location. We arrived around midnight and I started to get really worried when I saw the neighborhood. Once you get to the hostel, everything is fine, but you need to be prepared to stay in during your stay until you return to the airport. Overall I would recommend to anyone in this situation, but not to stay as your main hostel in Lima.

Nice hostel--close to the airport!

Posted May 1, 2015
Pros: Close to the airport. Clean and tidy! Very helpful and gracious staff.
Cons: The room we stayed in didn't have AC, which made it feel a bit stuffy and muggy. But we opened the windows and the breeze helped!
Location: FYI, our taxi driver had a very hard time finding the place. Be sure your driver knows where he is going before you leave the airport!
Stayed here for an afternoon to sleep and rest before our redeye out of Lima close to midnight. Perfect set up! We booked right from the airport and checked in an hour later. Staff very, very accommodating and very gracious and friendly. Had room ready for us and let us check in early. They arranged for a taxi cab to take us to the airport that evening and even included it in the cost of the stay. Great set up. Comfortable room--we only stayed for an afternoon but it was perfect for what we needed!

Good hostel, for quick trip and good price!

Posted Apr 28, 2015
Pros: Staff, breakfast
Cons: Taxi arriving on time upon arrival
Location: Location close to airport
Overall, I was satisfied with this hostel. It was exactly what I needed and expected but the room was even better. I paid for the room with my private bathroom and still got a good deal, totally worth it. I only needed it for a couple of hours and it did its job. Breakfast was simple but made fresh right when I came down. Staff was nice as well. I paid for the taxi service provided by the hostel. The only bad thing was the taxi was not there when I got in at 1am, so it was kind of frustrating having to wait and ask to use someone's cell phone to call. Needless to say he showed up and took me to my place in minutes. If you have a short stay and on a budget this is the place to go! If you want a 3 or 5 star hotel, don't look at hostels. You get what you pay for and this was just right!!

Decent place for the price, okay neighborhood

Posted Feb 9, 2015
This place is close to the airport which makes it convenient, the staff was waiting for us even though we arrived at almost midnight. The room was small but clean. The breakfast was an egg, white rolls and tea.

Close to the airport

Posted Nov 23, 2014
Pros: Close to the airport
Location: Nothing to do nearby. Close to the airport, that's it.
Only stayed here because it's close to the airport. Nothing else to offer. Location is bad otherwise. If you have a super early flight, this is a better option than waiting at the airport. For approx US$20 you can have a hot shower, internet and a place to rest while you wait for your flight. They help you get a taxi to the airport...

Dear Fabio, Yes, our guests prefer us because they can have a place to rest before their next flight for a low cost. That’s the basic need that we want to satisfy, because for tourism, partying; our location is not the appropriate and we are very conscious of that. If we focus in these things, we could lose the main reason that customers wants to be in our hostel. We really hope your understanding. Best Regards, Hostal Las Fresas.

Great place to crash.

Posted Aug 14, 2014
Pros: Location, location, location.
Location: There's not much. We heard the area was not the safest, but we did not feel unsafe at all.
We stayed here just overnight between flights, and it was perfect. It's close to the airport, so it's very easy to get to and from the hostal. They also have a very friendly driver who can pick you up and drop you off (we recommend this as taxis can sometimes scam you, as happened to us). The area around the Hostal is not very nice, and there's nothing to do or see. But again, it's perfect for an quick night's stay.

Dear John, Thank you very much for your honest commentary! We feel happy that you got along with our taxi driver. We always offer a taxi to pick up and drop off our guest at the airport and so that we keep away taxis at the airport from scamming our guest. I know that our area is not fansy or nice like Miraflores for example, but we are working for improve our neighborhood. We hope to see you again! Best Regards, Hostal Las Fresas
