Despite the name, you’re a long way from a llama in Lima. But, at Llama Brothers, you’re only three blocks from the sea. And there are great restaurants and bars on the doorstep. There are no dorms, just a handful of doubles and triples. All are simple white cubes with tiled floors, dominated by beds and given dabs of color by bright, fresh bedspreads and cushions. Making friends is easy – there’s a shared space with complimentary tea and coffee and a communal kitchen. With no party bar, tranquillity reigns.
