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

Marco antonio perez was a great host, gave tips on how to explore lima inexpensively and safely with great restaurant recommendations.He speaks pretty good English. he even opens up his own little bar on the rooftop for guests. Hostel is clean and quiet. Small but amenable to meeting fellow travellers. Highly recommend it.

I stayed at Lima Backpackers with my boyfriend for 7 nights altogether and we absolutely loved this hostel. It's basically a home away from home! Marco is a wonderful host, so helpful and always available. The bedrooms are very comfortable with each bunk having it's own sockets and light. The whole place is spotlessly clean and the common area is... More

Marco's place is unlike any other hostels in Lima. The place is rather small, only 8 beds in total. But it is like a home away from home. My boyfriend and I were only there for 2 days, but this place left an impression. Marco also runs a small bar up on the rooftop, and you've got to have him... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Lima Backpackers for 3 days while we were in Lima. Marco the host was extremely hospitable and helpful, making us hand drawn maps every morning and printing out maps and writing on them too. He thinks of all the details such as providing a metro card for the bus and fresh squeezed orange juice... More

By far one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at! Marco is an excellent host, great breakfast with freshly squeezed juice and he draws maps and tells you what to see in Lima.

Stayed at this hostel as a stop on the way north with my wife- we've been backpacking for a while now, so we have a fair idea of what the standard is- this place was great- five stars for cleanliness, helpful and friendly owner (perfect english), great breakfast (freshly squeezed orange juice, brown and wholewheat rolls, cheese and ham).

Marco is the most welcoming, friendly and helpful host I've had the pleasure to stay with. He goes beyond the call of duty to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
