Good location: it is convenient if you don't want to stay in Miraflores. The building is nice. Try to have a room at the back because when you are closed to the hall and the bar, it is very noisy. People talk loudly in the hallways. Clean bathrooms and hot water! The beds were okay as some of the bed... More

Even tough the price is slightly higher than usual for being in Peru, yours will be money well spent. For most people Lima is the first or last place they stay at in the country. If you've just arrived you'll be able to have a nice environment in which to plan your trip. Ask other backpackers that have already done... More

We got in really early and the had a room for us. It was great that they had the room and we could check in early. They were fixing the bathrooms at the time so it was noisy. The location was excellent. Really close to the downtown area. The free city tour was good. The room we had was fine.... More

Even for the most basic accommodations, you need some hot water and functioning toilets. This place didn't have either for the 3 days we stayed here. Disgusting especially w so many people sharing. They still charge full rates even w no plumbing!

1900 was very accommodating, with good links to safe and well known services such as Cruz Del Sur buses, tour guides, airport transfers etc. the room was basic but very clean and worth the price tag. We stayed in the private double room, but the shared rooms looked nice too. The showers were very nice also. The receptionist was very... More

We just loved this place! This hostel is situated in a beautiful colonial building and when you enter this place, the impressive hallway with the colonial staircase brings you to the first floor were everything happens. The rooms have impressive high ceilings, beautiful tiled floors and everywhere you'll see the old windows and doors. We slept in the biggest room... More
