The capital, Lima, remains their heartland and a trio of Flying Dog properties can be found surrounding Lima’s atmospheric Kennedy Park, in the upmarket, central suburb of Miraflores. The beach is just a few blocks away, while stacks of bars, cafés and shops are right on your doorstep.

Brilliantly run, the Dogs’ have extra friendly staff, and even throw in a decent (if small) free breakfast at a café overlooking the park. Book into their Hostel B&B if you’re looking for a party, while their Backpackers Hostel is probably the quietest option.

Rooms Modern and clean with plenty to please those with a keen eye for design. If the budget isn’t too tight, go for the £27 premium double en suite rooms which have fantastic park views.

Bill please Dorm beds cost from £7pn, doubles £17pn.
