The Point hostel in Lima is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. As per all Point hostels, they didn't have our reservation when we arrived (their online booking system really doesn't work!) but they found us a room anyway, and they even gave us a whole 4 bed dorm to ourselves (there were 2 of us) because they didn't have any doubles. The bar and garden were always buzzing, and a great place to meet people. Breakfast after a heavy night at the bar was really good too. Lima itself wasn't very exciting but we were happy to spend most of our time there in the hostel. You have to get a bus/ taxi into town (unless you walk, like we did, but it takes about an hour!) but the area around the hostel has some good restuarants so you don't have to go into town too much.
