What a great building! Lovely mosaic floors and wood panelled walls. Stayed in a double room which was basic with a fan. The bar was really nice with well priced drinks and friendly staff. A basic breakfast of bread rolls and jam, coffee and juice was included. The reception staff were really helpful and assisted us getting a taxi to... More

After arriving into Lima at 5am the team at 1900 welcomed us into the hostel to get our bearings and then held our luggage while we explored the city. The 8 bed dorm was spacious with lockers for belongings and comfy beds. Cold showers in the early hours but made up for by the hospitable nature of all the workers... More

I have stayed at 1900 hostel a few times already when i have been visiting Lima. I like the colonial building and the people who have always been very friendly (other guests and staff). The breakfast is good and I liked to chill on the roof terrace with friends and other guests. The bar with a pool table is also... More

I come from a relatively new area of the world and it was crazy fun to stay somewhere with so much culture! The downtown area is crazy hectic but fun, so much to do and see! I would definitely recommend this for anyone that wants to get some spice in their vacation!

I wish I could give this hostel a better rating, but the experience here is one I hope to not go through again at a "backpackers hostel". I would have given this hostel a 4 before the past few days. It was good at first as the staff was pleasant and helpful. The location is great - not in Miraflores... More

The perfect location, not in the touristy area, awesome bar in the hostel where people just have a great laugh. It's close to the historic district (about 5 minute walk), really nice place. The staff and locals that hang out there are LEGENDS! A HUGE thanks to Marcial, Victor, and Cesar for making my best stay in south America!

We stayed the night here and left our bags in the bag storage the next day and they went through our bags and stole our belongings. The hotel is extremely noisy and I would not trust these people. Your stay will not be very cheap if they steal your stuff.

I was glad we chose to stay at 1900 Hostel, Lima. It is a big, beautiful colonial building with lots of light and open common spaces. Beds are big and comfy. The windows in the rooms shut out light really well (good for sleeping in!), though do bring your ear plugs, as it's located on a noisy main road (though... More
