Ended my 1 month backing trip through Peru at Lima Backpackers, and greatly enjoyed my stay. The breakfast was excellent, the room was cozy, the wifi speeds were the best I had in all of Peru, and the host was such a joy. Totally check it out!

I was there a couple of months ago. It's a very nice place to stay. It's a very quiet neighborhood, but near to Miraflores and Barranco. Marco is a very kind host and a great friend! I enjoyed the time I stayed there, 9 or 10 days!!! I met very nice people during this time and had some great pisco... More

I stayed in Marcos cosy hostel Lima Backpackers twice. In total at least 10 days or so. Marco started out with inviting travelers into his home through couchsurfing. However, Marcos ambition to meet, accommodate and interact with travelers from all around the world could not be met with hosting only couchsurfers. So he started this cosy hostel! But let me...

It was great for me as a solo traveller to stay within Marcos hostel, since the atmosphere there is so family like. I met great people and Marco is a very good help. The bathroom and shower were very nice and the hostel has a cozy kitchen/meeting room which is great for gathering with the other travellers!

Forget about treatment you expect in a hostel, if I could have treated my personal guests at my place as well as Marco treated me, I would be proud. I can't think about even a single negative about this place and it's owner. Located in a good quiet area, extremely clean, very good WiFi, free 24/7 tea and coffee, comfy... More

I have only the best things to say about my experience in Lima Backpackers, with one exception which is a reflection of my preferences and not the establishment. Upon arriving at Lima Backpackers, Marco greeted us warmly in both English and Spanish, offered us tea and bread and jam. He immediately feels like a person you can trust, and it... More

After reading all the positive reviews about this hostel, I decided to give it a go. It is safe to say that it did not disappoint. Quite simply, this is the BEST hostel that I have ever stayed in, and I have done a lot of travelling. This is my third time in Peru and because of a few personal... More

This was the perfect first stop on our travels in Peru! The 4 bed female dorm with private bathroom was great, but what made it even better was the friendly relaxed atmosphere and your helpful tips, maps, instructions for us to get the most out of short stay in Lima. Thanks Marco!

I could tell you that this hostel is so comfortable you feel like you are just living in a friend's flat with 7 other people.
