It's a small hostel, just 8 beds, what makes it perfect! The beds are really comfy, the kitchen has everything you need, the showers are great, it's well located (in a residential area) and the most important (for me) it's really clean! Marco is a great host, he becomes your friend right away!

This is only the beginning of our trip but it will be hard to find another hostel as nice as this one. Very clean and comfortable. Great location! Beautiful rooftop bar. And the host, Marco, is extremely helpful and inviting. We will stay here every time we are in Lima.

I have to say, I've stayed at dozens of hostels around the world and this place is one of the best. If you're looking for a comfortable home-like environment in Lima then look no further. Location is great, price is tailored for the backpacker that wants quality without breaking the bank and the host Marco will become a friend instantly.... More

I stayed 3 nights at lima backpackers. It is a small hostel, for max. 8 people. The owner Marco gave good advice, takes us one day to the market for very good ceviche. Nice shower, good bread for breakfast, soft beds. There is a bar on the roof, where Marco served very good pisco sour. I will come back!

Loved my time there and missing it already! Thanks for the yummy breakfasts, the guitar lessons, the fun and the hangovers! Marcos place is spick and span and he sets a lovely warm and chill atmosphere. A homely place to start your travels.

This was by far the best place I stayed while I was in Peru, and my partner and I stayed in Mancora, Arequipa, Cuzco, Ica, Auguas Calientes... Plus a couple other small towns. Comfy beds, a fantastic host, etc. my only recommendation is don't go there first because every hostel after will be a let down!

I really like this hostel, it makes you feel like home hanging around with Marcos and other amazing travelers! Marcos knows a lot of good restaurants and sometimes guests went out together for the food cuisine! Of course Lima is one of capital to try food!!! The room is large and bed is comfortable, WIFI is very fast!! The terrace... More

it was just like home, more like a flat with a central eating and lounge so you can help but mix. Marco made me so welcome, provided me with maps for restaurants etc he had personally visited to verify they were ok. He even took a couple of us to a local market where he goes to eat cerviche. Amazing... More

Located near the junction of miraflores and barranco but located in Surco district, this is a two room (4bed dorm per room) apartment with kitchen facilities. Affordable price. But the best part of it is the host Marco who was very welcoming and helpful with directions, attractions, where to eat and how to get to attractions. We ended up taking... More
