We arrived to Barranco Backpacker's late afternoon after a long day of travelling. We were greeted by a frowning lady who demanded "reservasion?" and "nombres". She otherwise didn't say a word to us as she showed us to the room. Yes we are clearly not native Spanish speakers, but when I say to someone "buenas tardes, como esta?" it would... More

Pros: Located in a safe area of Lima, good starting point to explore, bars/restaurants nearby while only 6/10s to Miraflores. Staff are friendly (especially Daisy) and happy to help with any queries. Rooms were big, lockers, good shower pressure and 24 hour hot water. Cons: Not a 'party' hostel at all, but still noisy (outside noise, late night wanderers, thin... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here during three nights while visiting Lima for the first time. We got a room with twin beds and a private bathroom on the second floor. It had a tv, a window with (not the best, but still nice) ocean view, good mattresses and lockers. The hostel has an average communal kitchen, showers with hot... More

My gf and I stayed here for 3 nights. We stayed in the corner room upstairs that had a nice breeze and was quiet for Lima. Really enjoyed the laid back vibe in Barrancos. There are some decent bars nearby and you can't get any closer to the beach. Owner and front desk were very helpful although the overnight lady... More

i stayed there for 2 nights and it was quite expensive if you compare it to other hostels in peru and the quality that you can get elsewhere. the location is nice (little bit confusing though, the street name exists twice in lima, you have to stress on the fact that you want to go to barranco if you are...

This was the perfect place to ease us into South American life. There are cheaper options but you get what you pay for - clean & lovely rooms, decent wifi, breakfast and outstanding service. Staff were very helpful, letting us in at 6am even though we weren't due to book in until 1pm. Chris the owner (British) gave us great... More

Had the staff pick me up at the airport, staff were very friendly and helped me organise a few bus trips around Peru. Internet was very fast, the rooms were clean, with each room having its own bathroom. Location is a bit far from the airport but thats both Barrancos and Miraflores for you.

The price of this hostel fit my budget and the location was good, but the staff made me a bit uncomfortable. I was checked in and unpacked in the evening and went about my business, but I was not asked to pay. I assumed I was meant to pay when I checked out, but the next morning one of the... More

BBI was the first hostel I stayed in for my trip to Lima - got picked up from the airport for S/50. I would have rather started my first few days in Lima in Miraflores, which is a bit more active and touristy, because it was a bit harder to meet people like myself (early 20's, solo travelling). Either way,... More

Theft of expensive electronic times by backpackers inn employee. The items were in a locked and secure area only accessible by employees. Great location, fun area but the loss of very expensive items that will take a long time to replace is inexcusable. Warning, stay elsewhere!!!!
