Miraflores is a section of Lima, Peru that runs along the waterfront and is home to a fair number of expats, from what we’ve been able to tell. Inkawasi is a backpacker’s hostel in this same district. Our experience?Quite charming and decorated with antique Persian carpets, hand carved wooden furniture and giant Buddha statues scattered throughout, this place includes a basic continental breakfast (coffee and roll), communal areas with a cable TV and public access phone, and internet (for a small fee, but it’s an older machine so doing anything with images will be difficult).

Prices vary from around 10 bucks for an open dorm style room, to a large suite-type room with king sized bed, separate sitting area, private cable TV and a marble bathroom with jacuzzi (around 26 bucks). There are also numerous levels of accommodation in between.

There’s a small indoor open air courtyard garden with BBQ and two covered seating areas decorated in ethnic style. All in all, I’d say this is a nice, higher-end hostel to stay in that borders on bed and breakfast quality depending on what room you choose to stay in. Recommended for those touring Peru and looking for the nicest place possible on a shoestring budget.
