Nice, clean hostel, not too much of a party-place, so you can get some rest on the comfortable enough beds (although I always find earplugs useful in all hostels!). It's small but there are communal spaces where you can meet other people easily. Great location too. Definitely recommend!

Everything is in dragonfly: hot water, cheap prices, excellent wifi and location. The rooftop is beautiful with a bbq and a bar. Really chill place with excellent staff always helpful. They even have a booking desk for all the tours in Peru.

Great facility and staff! Their kitchen is free for use and has all necessary cooking supplies. Perfect location for walking to different parts of Miraflores. Near the market, shopping mall, beach, and good foods!

The hostel itself is nice and cosy. We had a private room on the roof top. The downfall of this was the late night group hangouts can be annoying if you want to sleep as sound echos through the room. We had to make our way through groups of people to be able to get to the bathroom a few...

As 2 54 year olds, this was our first stay in a hostel. Got off to a bad start when our pre-booked taxi wasn't at the airport to collect us. When I phoned the hostel they said that they'd forgotten to book it! Check-in at hostel was fine, the staff were very helpful. The room was adequate, bed comfortable but...

First stop arriving in South America. Dragonfly was cute, comfortable and fun. I was traveling solo so the bar/rooftop area was awesome to meet other travelers. I'll be staying there again on my way back through Lima, I would definitely recommend it!

Dragonfly is a great hostel, it's right near Kennedy Park, and the prices are pretty good. To be honest, I was surprised at the other people staying there, quite a few were asleep by 10pm on a Saturday, and were a little rude. That being said, the staff were awesome, and we still made some friends from Australia, Canada, and...

Really nice hostel with good prices in Miraflores, Lima. Friendly staff, really nice rooftop and comfortable private room. Really appreciated the chilled out vibe. Good place to grab a few drinks but definitely not a party hostel. Really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely come back.
