Who we Are?

  • Hey You!

    We are Joanna and Jeremy, a Polish-Peruvian couple whose biggest dream ever was to own a hostel, and here we are!

    Happy Up Here Guest House is our first step in making dreams come true!

    We’ve decided to share our place with other travellers in order to make every day special and full of energy brought by our guests.   
    We both met in Aug 2008 in Cusco during our backpacking travels throughout South America. A year after Joanna moved in to Lima and the idea and adventure of HUH has started.
    Future plans? Too see the world!
    Welcome everybody!

Where's the Guesthouse?

Happy Up Here is located in the friendly residential and ecological district of San Borja, nearby lots of parks, supermarkets, drugstores, travel agencies, ATMs, convinience stores and a 7 minute ride from the biggest mall in Lima, the Jockey Plaza. We're also strategically located just 5 minutes walking from the Museum of the Nation of Peru.

To get to the most popular area of Lima, Miraflores, you just need a 20 minutes ride by taxi or public transportation.


As we're practically in the center of the city, it takes to get here from 5 to 15 minutes ride from all of the Bus Stations on Javier Prado Avenue (depending on which Station) and 30 minutes from the Jorge Chavez International Airport.
