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. Beds are big and comfortable, large lockers in the room, nice common area with tv books games computer candies. Good wifi, and there is even... More

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. The beds are extremely spacious and comfortable, the wifi is very good and the breakfast is much better than you get in most hostels. The environment is sociable and... More

Marco turned his superior apartment into a mini hostel. There are max. 8 backpackers in 2 spotless rooms so it never feels like a hostel. Marco loves Lima and puts a huge effort into the guests overall experience. It actually feels like couchsurfing. I couldn't find anything to complain and you find everything you can ask for. The beds are... More

I was immediately impressed by the information and communication of Lima backpackers. When i arrived Marvo had printed me off a map of everything i needed to know and is also is very knowledgeable of the surrounds. The beds are soooooo comfy!

This hostel is located in a condo building in a residential area of Lima. It has 2 - 4 bed rooms. Very well taken care of, the owner is also the manager and takes excellent care of the place and his guests. The only potential downside is the location, however, everyone has a different idea of a perfect location. The... More

Hard to not repeat what has already been said before but let's say we came here based on the reviews below and it sure did live up to them!

To echo all the incredible reviews below, Marco was quite simply the best hostel host we've met in 3 months of travelling round South America by a mile. His attention to detail really shows in everything he does, from night lights and shelving level with the top bunks (win!) to his careful directions and recommendations for anything/anywhere in Lima!

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.
