Lonely Planet review
Of Flying Dog’s four Lima hostels, this is the best, featuring a lovely outdoor garden bar and 3rd-floor lounge area with expansive views over Parque Kennedy. Two kitchens make for a shorter cooking queue, and the included breakfast is taken at the terrace restaurant across the park. The biggest outlet, across the park, is rather dusty and rundown.
Our independent authors have visited Flying Dog Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Lima.
Description provided by property
Just 500 metres from Lima’s beach district, this colourful hostel offers nicely decorated rooms with shared and private bathrooms. Airport pick-ups can be arranged. Wi-Fi and parking are free.
The Flying Dog Hostel features common rooms with wicker chairs and dark leather sofas. Guests can relax with a DVD or a book from the library.
The rooms have nice, simple décor with parquet floors. Lockers are included. Some rooms have views of Kennedy Park and are styled with terracotta bedspreads and walls, and light wood furnishings.
A continental breakfast with tropical fruits and regional jams can be enjoyed daily in La Paz or El Parquetito bars, located nearby. Guests have access to a modern, white tiled kitchen with decorative ceramic pots.

Flying Dog Hostel does not have a lift. The rooms can only be accessed through the staircase.
Based on local tax laws, Peruvian citizens (and foreigners staying more than 59 days in Peru) must pay an additional fee of 18%. To be exempt from this 18% additional fee (IVA), a copy of the immigration card and passport must be presented.
Please note both documents are required for fee exemption. Guests who are not able to present both documents will be required to pay the fee.
Foreign business travellers who require a printed invoice, will also be charged the additional 18% regardless of the length of their stay in Peru. This fee is not automatically calculated in the total costs for the reservation.
