"Great Location, Quiet and easy Access to All"
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on Mar 18, 2014
The hostal is located in a very nice and safe neighborhood in Lima, allowing easy access to everything. The staff is polite and helpful, the building is in good shape but the space is kind of tight, my single room was a bit too small, but with a tv and fan, small desk and chair. There is some kind of mustiness smell on the whole place starting at the entrance. It should be aired out more often or deeply cleaned for a perfect experience. Decent breakfast, also there is a wonderful Cafe next door and a Huge supermarket a block away. Nice place for the price, i will definitely come back!
"Wonderful Stay at La Casa de Blanca"
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on Feb 27, 2014
We spent one night at La Casa de Blanca, and it was a wonderful experience. It is located an easy 20 minutes from the airport in an old and somewhat run-down, but safe neighborhood. This bed-and-breakfast is run by a delightful family, and they made feel as though we were part of the family. The day after our arrival they treated us to a "Peruvian Welcome", which consisted of an hour or so of music and singing. We would definitely stay there again if we ever return to Lima.
"We have now our Peru family!"

My family and I spent our 5 nights in Lima at Mundo Albergue, and we can't say enough how wonderful they were. Carlito (the son) was very responsive and helpful. He was knowledgeable about the tours and the places to visit, and was always ready to help us in any ways. Doña Soledad (the mother) made us feel that we were a part of their family, very attentive and loved my children (9 and 11 y/o).
If you are looking for a regular hotel stay, it may not be a place for you. This is the place for the people who are looking for a home in Peru and who want to have special memories with a Peruvian family. The rooms are not very big, but accommodate 4 twin beds comfortably . They are very clean and the beds are comfortable and warm. They have shared bathrooms only and you need to pay for towels if you need one, but look how much you are paying for the room and it is only 3 soles for a towel. You can't complain.
It locates a little far from Miraflore. It takes about 20 minutes by taxi and costs about 30 soles. But it is much closer to the airport and this is important if you have a early morning flight since the traffic in Lima is awful and it takes forever to get to the airport.
We found our "albergue (refuge)" and our Perú family. We will love to go back to Lima to stay at Mundo Albergue just to see the Carlito's family again! Thank you, Carlito, Doña Soledad, and Don Carlos. We are missing you!
"Cheap place to stay in great location"

This is a hostel, not a 5 star hotel. It's clean, cheap, and in the midst of Miraflores. It's an easy walk to restaurants and shopping. They make the best of what they have to work with. If you plan on going out often and just need a place to rest your head, this place is perfect for that. The bathroom does tend to smell like sewage, but I've stayed in a couple of much nicer places with the same problem. Don't expect any sort of service or even much conversation. This place is purely barebones and functional.
"15 minutes from airport."

Hostal Victor was a convenient option for our overnight stay. My wife and I had to catch a flight early in the morning and Andy had a driver to pick us up at the airport and bring us back. The room and bathroom was clean. Andy was very helpful in answering questions concerning currency. The neighborhood is not probably the place for an evening stroll but Hostal Victor is great for a an overnight stay while waiting for a connecting flight.I would give it 4 1/2 stars.
