We stayed here only a night, the staff was very accommodating and helpful. We had a 2am flight and they let us store bags and come and go throughout that following day, and set us up with a taxi to the airport. It is right by the ocean and you even have a bit of ocean view from some the... More

Stayed here for over a week recently. The location is about as good as it gets, on a relatively quiet street in a very noisy city, and SO close to the ocean. Plus it's in Barranco one block from the main plaza, so bars, clubs, restaurants, transport is all right here. It's not a loud backpacker's vibe, maybe a little... More

This hostel was nicely located close to the ocean and in a more trendy area than the popular Miraflores. Barranco has a much more authentic feel than Miraflores, so I highly recommend staying here. The hostel will help you organize safe airport transfers at reasonable rates, and they have many great tips about things to see and do.

The location of this place is great. It's right on the cliffside with views of the water. It's close to good food and fun bars. It's just off a small park and within walking distance to Museo Osma (little visited, but excellent). They have a kitchen, decent breakfast, private rooms, wifi. Our only complaint is that it was a little... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed at the Barranco's Backpackers Inn for three nights while we were in Lima. The hostel is located in an old house in a bohemian neighborhood, and the accommodations were clean and neat. We got a private room with two single beds and an ocean view. Chris, the owner, was very helpful and kind enough to... More

I stayed in one of the dorms with a friend for six nights and had a very pleasant stay. The location is really great: Barranco is far away from the hustle and bustle of the centre and is a friendly district to hang out in. It's also a great place to go out in the evenings. The hostel itself is... More

We were only in Lima for 2 nights but Barranco Backpackers Inn was the perfect place to stay. They arranged our pickup from the airport and stayed open late for us when we arrived at 2am. Our room was clean and comfortable, and the hostel had a breakfast. The best part was the location and the staff who worked there.... More

I was traveling solo and decided to stay here for one night before a flight. Booking, arrival and check in were smooth. It was a terrible idea! I was not expecting such a young, unruly crowd to be also staying there drinking all night. It was like a frat house. I did not sleep a wink. Thank god I had... More

Communication from the hostel in advance of our arrival was excellent. Chris arranged a pick up for us from the airport which went without a hitch. We had a private room and private bathroom, room had a locker and we could get wifi by just stepping outside our room which was on the top floor. There was a computer to... More

and the staff down right rude. We each pre-arranged airport pick up, but my luggage was lost and the driver left before I got through customs. The next day's driver left before my friend got through, although no luggage was lost. No big deal. We are seasoned travelers. Green Taxi got us each there. When we mentioned not being picked...
