I'd a brilliant end at Lima Backpackers to a brilliant 6 week holiday in Peru. The Accomadation is super with everything you need to make yourself comfortable and at home. But it is the opportunity to meet Marco that is the real appeal of this accomadation. He is a great ambassador for Lima and really enjoys showing his city with... More

A short but sweet stay in Lima thanks to Marco and his gorgeous backpackers. Felt very homely and beds were comfy. Marco gave us great tips to help see the most of Lima in a short time and also helped us order some chifa takeaways when we got home. The terrace was gorgeous but didn't get to try the famous...

This place is great! The bedroom is good (2 bunk beds) and the living and kitchen area is really lovely, it really does feel like a home. And the roof terrace is amazing! Marco has a killer bar set up there :) Each guest gets a set of keys, a metro card, and a big locker, really great to have... More

Very cozy little hostel with two 6 bed dorms (probably). Good breakfast, very clean. Pleasanty homely atmosphere mainly due to the amazing hosts. Delicious bakery around the corner. Probably the first address I would recommend to a friend looking for a few nights in a relaxed environment

Stayed here for a few nights at the beginning of my trip, this place os awesome. Well situated, near the Metropolitano, this 8 guests place is really enjoyable. The 2 rooms of 4 beds each are comfortable and clean, with lockers. The bathroom is super clean and has hot water all the day long. The breakfast, included in the price,... More

While in Peru, I stayed in four different hostels and this was the best. Eight beds gave it a close family feel and we socialised with everyone who stayed. Marco the owner/manager was brilliant and spoke excellent English as well as Spanish, providing everything from restaurant and sightseeing advice to mixing cocktails. The breakfast was lovely (cheese, jams, bread, tea)... More

I stayed here a few nights whilst I was travelling around Peru and have to say it was excellent. Marco the owner is very friendly and will help you with anything you need , from getting around the city to getting you a reasonably priced taxi to the airport. There is also a small private bar upstairs which is excellent... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Lima Backpackers, especially appreciating the small size; it only has 8 beds total. Marco helped us out a lot as far as getting around Lima, and he was very knowledgeable. He also made sure that our stay was very comfortable. It's located a bit far from the airport, but a very nice and peaceful... More
