Flying Dog hostel, Lima
This is quite a nice hostel, with a bunch of very friendly staff, and a crowd that's generally really warm. It's not the most exciting place I've ever stayed at; but I get the feeling that the crowds come and go (there isn't a huge crowd here now), and that it's pretty hip by Lima standards. Because I kinda got stuck in Lima during Semana Santa (Easter), I ended up staying here for a full week.
Rooms: basic bunks — not too crowded.
People: friendly; some wanna party, just wanna watch TV.
Staff: very outgoing, part of the crew, and English-speaking.
Location: middle of Miraflores, which is nicer than downtown Lima.
Food: breakfast is free (restaurant downstairs), but a bit small.
Internet: 1 free PC (15 min limit, a bit slow).
