The place is small, cosy and very clean- yet still conducive in meeting fellow travelers over breakfast. Marco prepares great breakfast and little surprises along the way. He made us feel really welcome and shared valuable tips. great start to our Peru Trip.

Stayed at this hostel when I flew in and out of Lima during my stay in Peru, and totally loved it. The hostel is clean, the breakfast is good (you even get freshly squeezed orange juice in the morning) and Marco is more than happy to help with, well, virtually anything.

I'm so glad I choose this hostel for my final two nights in Peru. With room for less than 10 people the place is homey, clean and secure. Marco thought of every detail, providing us with metro cards, tips for places to eat nearby, and even waking up in the middle of the night to ensure my taxi to the... More

Just to reflect what others have said: a good, safe bet especially if you are starting your travels. Hot showers, great bakery bread (you will learn to appreciate that quickly!), a handy desktop computer, good wifi, Metro cards (a good 15 min away), and a good quiet sleep. The only slight downsides is that the top bunks don't really have... More

This was my favourite hostel of all the ones I stayed in in Peru. Its a little bit alternative as there are only room for nine people but thats what makes it unique and gives it a feel home from home feel. The kitchen is well equiped and the freshly baked bread for breakfast is the nicest Ive ever eaten,... More

I've stayed in hostels all over the world, and this is up there with the best, and Marco is the best host I've met. From the directions he emailed to help get from the airport to booking the when I was leaving he couldn't have been more helpful. His advice on attractions around the hostel is very good. The hostel... More

Lima Backpackers was the perfect way to start my trip in Peru. I stayed here for three nights and am so glad I did. The dorms were comfortable and clean. Although the neighborhood is slightly out of the way of the major tourist areas, Marco does an excellent job of explaining how to use the public transportation and even provides... More

Stayed here for three nights; the dorms are comfortable, the hostel is clean and the breakfast is great. Marco is the best host; providing maps, metro cards; he took us to a great place for ceviche and helped with further bookings for our trip including early morning taxis, printing boarding passes and everything in between.

I stayed here based on the reviews even though it is a bit out of the way from the top locations in Lima and there were no private rooms, but let me tell you, the experience was totally worth it!!!

Perfect start, or end, to your journey in Peru. Especially start, Marco is very helpful and very knowledgeable, the place is clean and calm and just really good. Will stay again. There's a reason there are no 1 or 2 star reviews at the time of writing, and probably ever.
