Recently, I had the pleasure of staying at Lima Backpackers and I can without a doubt say that it was one of the best experiences I've had in a hostel. Marco is a kind and caring hostel owner. He is always looking out for his guests, drawing maps and giving suggestions for food, sightseeing, and bars. He makes you feel...

The owner, Marco, is very friendly and accommodating. Nice location, clean place with full use of everything from the kitchen to the computer. Felt like home. He provides you with everything to get around like printing detailed maps, tips, keys and a transportation card. Loved the rooftop terrace, great views and a full bar. Marco makes the best pisco sour,...

This is how hostels should be! The house is always clean with a very well equipped kitchen. The dorms are nice with very comfortable mattresses and the hostel is in a good location (easy to reach Barranco and Miraflores). The best thing about the hostel though is the owner Marco. He goes well out of his way to help accommodate...

Such a friendly, clean, and fantastic place to stay. There are 2 dormitory rooms with 4 beds each, giving this hostel a friendly and welcoming vibe. I honestly felt like I was staying at a relative's house and not a hostel. Marco is truly an amazing host and made us feel welcomed and right at home. Jean was so kind...

Lima Bacpacker is one house with only two rdormitory rooums, quiet and 15 minutes walking from Miraflores and Barranco. To reech a city center you can take bus or metrobus.

Marco, you have a lovely, friendly and welcoming hostel, very clean and homely! Breakfast was lovely, beds were very comfy! Myself and my three sisters stayed for two nights on our first visit to Peru, thank you so much. My sisters particularly enjoyed your Pisco sours and dancing in your rooftop bar! Highly recommend to anyone visiting Lima.

After 6 1/2 years of continuous traveling, this is the one place that stands out as probably the best hostel I have ever stayed at! This hostel made me stay in Lima for 10, instead of my planned 2 days, and then come back 2 months later for another 2 weeks. Marco has to be the kindest and most dedicated...

A short but sweet stay in Lima thanks to Marco and his gorgeous backpackers. Felt very homely and beds were comfy.
