Pro: service at this place was great for me. I was fleeced by my cab driver from the airport, and the woman at the front desk helped me find the right people to make a report. (The driver and I agreed on 40 soles, and midway through the ride, he demanded that I pay him then. And when I gave... More

Hostel 1900 was a good hostel with pretty much everything you need - good location, comfy beds and solid internet. They also have a lot of information and discounts on tourist attractions so if you're looking for a good point to start your journey through Peru this would be a good place to start. The only real downsides were that... More

This is the most beautiful hostel I've ever stayed in. It's always clean and offers a decent (and free) breakfast in the morning. The location is great too. Make sure to check out the museum across the street. On a side note, try to avoid getting cabs from the hostel directly. It's about 4 times more expensive.

So noisy and in a bad neighborhood of Lima.. beautiful place but it was indeed dirty and not well kept. The American worker there was always on his phone when people needed to check in and would never help because he was also on the roof with friends

For me, this was a really great hostel to stay at while in Lima. It's a beautiful place with really nice rooms and common areas and located very conveniently in the city centre within walking distance of all the touristic sights and the metropolitana station. Staff was very friendly and helpful (especially Michelle) and breakfast was good for being included... More

We booked this place on Hostelworld.com because it had such high ratings but found that the ratings were not at all accurate. We were there 3 nights, hot water was off most of the time, cold showers only. Cold showers are fine in the jungle but Lima water is COLD! Music from the bar exceeds any reasonable level making it...

First, I personally loved the location of this hostel. It's near the museums, a beautiful park, walking distance to all the main attractions. They also offer a great free walking tour which I highly recommend!! It's great history, interesting, helps you find your way around Lima, and broadens your knowledge on Lima. A beautiful and historic city that people are... More

Hostel's location is very good. It's in the center of the city, but there is a big park right in front of it. So it's a much calm and silent street compared to the surrounding chaos. Hostel building is beautiful and clean. There is possible to spend calm and quiet time but also you can enjoy in bar,play table soccer,billiard.... More

I think it`s a good place to stay if you`re visiting Lima for a few days. It`s right in the center of the city. Building is very old and big. The ceiling is very high which I personally like very much. There is breakfast included. Bread, marmelade, good fresh coffee and juice. There is a bar in the hostel. It`s... More
