We checked in at the one next to starbucks. Location is great, everything else sucks. Towels were really dirty, no water pressure on the shower, internet doesnt work, noisy, cats all over the place (even in 3rd floor). Said told us we wouldnt pay for breakfast as we had an early flight (forgot to call taxi as well) but wrote...

Great team in a great hostel. There's a bar, a pool table, a living room and the rooms and bathrooms are clean enough. Can't ask for more.

We stayed here for 6 nights, good kitchen, rooms are pretty clean, ours was quite spacious, the free wifi was a bit hit and miss in the room, but pretty good for the most part in the common areas. The location is perfect, from our window we looked onto the main square of Mira Flores, but that had a massive...

We reluctantly stayed at Flying Dog Hostel for 10 days while waiting to find alternative accommodation. For the most part the staff were okay and helpful at times, but the rooms were less than average. If you get tired of the hot and loud rooms at the front of the hostel, you can opt to move to the back where...

Having entrusted the hostel with my bags, I had many items stolen (camera, lenses, headphones, money). After their investigation, they decided that these items were stolen on a bus. Their policy is that the door where bags are stored securely is locked and accessed under supervision, when we collected our bags, we were told to 'just go on in as...

We moved to this hostel after a bad experience with the hostel across the road (Pariwana - too noisy and unfriendly). Flying dog is a little pricey but you get a discount card if you stay more than once (which we did) and the location is excellent - next door to the best sandwich shop I have ever visited. The...

I stayed here two weeks ago for one night and a girl in my dorm (3) found a bed bug, was a bit worried so we changed rooms left the next day and was fine. Have come back two weeks later thinking it was just a one off and was put in the same dorm and guess what I find...

This place is not great by any means. It is never cleaned properly, I had to remove a massive hair ball from the shower and the wrapper of a pantyliner before I could use the shower. Not good! The only thing that is ok is the breakfast as it´s served at the cafe nearby on the plaza but it´s not...

Nice place, stayed in a private room with shared bathroom. It was a neat room, comfy beds with nice bedside lamps. The shared bathroom was a bit on the small side but we got by alright. The location was superb, can't complain at all! Free breakfast in the next door restaurant was cool too!
