Booked a one-night stay here on the recommendation of my sister who stayed here two years ago who said the host was extremely friendly and helpful. Marco lived up to my expectations and more. As we were at the end of our travels we weren't looking to be too ambitious with what we did so it was a perfect relaxing... More

We stayed only two nights at Lima Backpackers but we were made to feel like family during our short stay. Marco, the owner, is incredibly helpful with information about the city, where to go, how to get there. He also makes a fabulous pisco sour! The place is small (max 8 people at one time), so it's easy to get... More

We only stayed in Lima and this hostel for 2 nights. It was enjoyable, very small with 7 beds available. Location isn't the greatest but everything is close enough to walk to in 20 or so minutes. Marco (owner and host) was lovely, such a kind man and super helpful. Always willing to answer and help you with everything. Breakfast... More

I had no problems finding the hostel as I followed the directions that Marco sent in the email. I was only in Lima for 18 hours, just a quick stop in the city before flying to Cuzco. Marco warmly welcomed me and my room was ready just a few minutes after I arrived. He also gave me a bus card... More

I stayed at Lima Backpackers for 2 nights and it was one of the best places I've ever stayed at! Marco is a great host - he goes to a lot of effort to make you feel right at home. The hostel only has 8 beds so it's cosy and perfect for the solo traveller. The roof bar was a... More

I stayed at this hostel almost one year ago, but only now got to write the review. I have to say that Marco is the best host I met while traveling in south america. I'll start with the basics - the beds were much better than the ones I've encountered in other hostels, and the same goes for the breakfast,... More

A very well-priced, friendly place which I really enjoyed staying at. The owner is really cool and makes some excellent drinks. In a good location, too - walkable distance to Miraflores. I'd definitely recommend this place if you're coming to Lima.

While in Lima we stayed at two different hostels and Marco's was by far the better of the two. Great atmosphere! He makes great pisco sours and really makes you feel welcome in the area. Close to some nice restaurants or a nice walk to Baranco!

Marco is the ideal hostel host. Accomodating, friendly, and very chill. He even accompanied some of the hostel crew to a few different places in Lima. Hostel is perfectly relaxed and has a wonderful vibe to it. Small, so you can really get to know the other people that are staying. Very easy to make friends if you are traveling... More
