I arrived at 530am, hadn't booked and was incredibly tired. But the nice young gentleman on reception was a breath of fresh air. Booked me in quickly and easily. Didn't charge or the early arrival either. The beds are COMFORTABLE, clean and the dorms have so much space! The building is very attractive and the staff do a great job... More

Went to Lima last month and stayed in this hostel for 3 nights. The location is quite convenient as it is on Main Street closed to shopping center and restaurant. The room can get very noisy at night. The hot water is unreliable. The WIFI can't be accessed if stayed in the back of hostel.

Stayed with a friend in a twin room for 3 nights after arriving from Ecuador and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Room was comfortable for the price, bedding was good quality and mattresses new. Showers were warm and powerful and the bar was a lot of fun, with good prices on cocktails and beers. Breakfast was simple, but did the job... More

This place is very good located in downtown Lima. The staff is very welcoming and the old building is very charming. I totally recommend this place. And if you want to enjoya little bit more of Peru instead of going to Miraflores that is very touristy, this is defintely the best choice.

This hostel is definitely not the best we have stayed in in South America. First of all the man at reception was very very rude. They have travellers working there for free for a bed and I always find this useless. They have no knowledge of the area. He could only tell me one place to eat and that was... More

I thought our stay here was fine...the room was bare bones- looked a bit like we were staying in a convent. Literally two eds in a white room.. The communal bathrooms were cleaned constantly which is really nice. Every time I left my room I saw someone either cleaning the bathrooms or cleaning the communal spaces. The showers had hot...

Really a terrible experience! The worst hostel ever! Noicy, cold shower, staff is not helpfull, poor breakfast and a bad location (you can not walk on the street during the night and all bars are in Miraflores) The private rooms are really overpriced. A terrible start of our trip in Peru. Maybe a good hostel if you like to party.

1900 Backpackers Hostel had a fun vibe with a good common area and good security. It is not in the BEST neighborhood but is a relatively short walk to one of two main plazas... our room was cold and in a center hallway so was quite noisy and bright... the whole hostel is open-aired which makes it cold at night......

We arrived near to midnight and was ushered to our room. Viola, room has furniture older than my grandmother, chairs and bed that is going to break anytime. Bedsheets and pillows were stained with black stains. I asked very nicely to change to a new room, was met with less pleasant reply. During middle of night, there was a fire... More

My friends and I stayed here for 4 nights in mid-June, but due to our plans 2-3 would have been sufficient. Staff were friendly and helpful and the price was right for our budget. The building itself was quite beautiful, but could have been a bit cleaner (especially the bathrooms). The bar was great for watching World Cup games and... More
