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... 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...

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

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
