This hostel is fantastic. It only has 8 beds, is very cosy, clean and you will feel as if you are at the home of a friend's place. There is a kitchen, where you can cook. Breakfast is actually awesome - Germans will appreciate the good bread! A supermarket and busses are in walking distance, the area feels very safe... More

Lima Backpackers is a great place to stay, the perfect first stop after a long flight. The host, Marco was really helpful with everything from places to eat to sorting out taxis. The bathroom and bedrooms were both very clean, as was the kitchen and living area. The shower was warm and there was a reliable wifi connection and we... More

My boyfriend Massimo and I have been travelling for over 4 months, starting from Guatemala and heading South. In true honesty, we can say that this is BY FAR the best hostel we have stayed at. Where do I start from? The location is just excellent. Away from all the chaos of Miraflores, Barranco or the city centre, in a... More

Lima Backpackers kept me in Lima longer than I expected. Marco is an exceptional human being. He is kind, generous, helpful and interested in people and their stories. The place itself really is a home and weary travellers, tired from too many overnight buses, dirty communal spaces and the constant momentum of travel, should take the time to rest those... More

I am not sure if anyone mentioned that Marco, the host, is a foodie and will guide you perfectly to some of the best restaurants and food stands not only in Lima but in the world. The hostel itself is very well arranged and organised so that you feel safe and comfortable. Marco likes his city and is very eager... More

Having now finished travelling for a year, I can safely say this is the best hostel/guesthouse I stayed in any country I visited by far - I wish I could rate it higher than a 5 :)! Marco is so friendly and as soon as I arrived here I felt at home. The place is cleaner than even any hotel... More

My husband, friend and I stayed here for two nights at the beginning of our voyage in Peru, and also for three nights at the end of our trip. We could not have been more satisfied.

To me the thrill of travelling is from seeing new places and meeting new people. If you're travelling to Lima and need a place to stay, look no further.
