More about Flying Dog Backpackers Hostel


by simplesee about Flying Dog Backpackers

Our group really didn't know what to expect about the place. Just looked it up in the Lonely Planet guide and told our cab driver to take us there from the airport. Amazingly enough, the place was everything that we wanted in a hostel. Those working there were extremely helpful, offering suggestions about everything. The facilities were what you would expect at a hostel, a dorm room with 8 beds and about 6 private rooms as well. There was also a full kitchen and a common room with an unlimited supply of DVD movies to watch on a tv that I wish I had back here at home. Also had free internet, free breakfast and a laid back cat to hang out with as well. Book early since most of the rooms are in high demand. The best thing about this place was the price, people and the location. The hostel is right in the center of Miraflores with a grocery store just a block away. Restaurants, music and all sorts of people are just right out of the doorstep. The guests ranged from the US, England, Canada, Brazil, and many others. Good folk that you could have laughs with at the tables and keep in contact with. All of this for just $10 a night. However, if you want to get some sleep, there is the loud bumping music that goes on for quite a while when night time comes. I had no problem, but if you're a light sleeper, take care about that.

Hostels in Lima

by canadian_25

Anyone have any suggestions on hostels with a fun crowd in the miraflores area? I am looking into Flying Dog backpackers and one called Friends house, which I found out about in a lonely planet book.. Any reviews or info would be much appreciated. Also anyone have any thoughts on how much currency to bring for the first few days, either local or american money, and ease of use with ATM machines or places excepting credit cards.

Thanks a ton

I'm not familiar with the Flying Dog, but I am familiar with these two hostels and I highly recommend them if you're on a tight budget:

Jr. Manco Capac 368, Miraflores
Telephone: 51-1-446-6248
There are dorm-type shared rooms. Breakfast is included and there is a kitchen that guests can use to prepare their own meals. Rate is $6 per day.

Jirón Manco Capac 471 Located in Miraflores, block 10 of Avenida Jose Larco
Telephone:(51-1) 791-2945 / Mobile: (51-1) 9813-9178.

Backpackers youth Hostel in Lima, located in the District of Miraflores. With access to the Internet, a continental breakfast, and an attentive family atmosphere. Prices range from $10 to $17

With regards to money, I'd bring some US money, but keep it as an emergency. When you arrive in Lima, there's an ATM in the airport baggage area. You have the option of withdrawing US dollars or soles. I withdraw enough soles to cover my expenses for a few days. I also withdraw US dollars. I use the ATM to withdraw more money as needed.

thanks for the info, I think i'll try out friends place.. Good to know getting money from the ATM is easy to do, I guess the last thing anyone needs is to get a big wad of cash stolen

Use common sense when using ATMs late at night, in the mall Larcomar (miraflores) there are "global" ATMs (not all ATMs take international cards, look for the signs Visa, Plus, Maestro, etc before inserting your card).

Those ATMs are next to the cinema (ticket house) in the centre of the mall, quite safe area to use ATMs during the night.

Sometimes you will find strange options, like choosing between "saving accounts" and "current accounts", at least one of them will work, don't worry. If you have got a hibrid code (numbers and letters), have a mobile at hand because the ATM's keypad won't show the letters.
