A really great hostel, very helpful staff, and a lively atmosphere. Also a good location, only about a 10-15 minute walk to the center of the city.


Nice hostel with a fun bar area.


Cold, smell like mold and a cheap breakfast is served.


Nice place in an historic building across from the Lima museum of art and close by to a bunch of central Lima food, attractions, etc. Light breakfast included in room fee and cool bar area with pool table and music videos playing. Friendly enough staff though they're a bit rough til you get to know them. I've already returned once for an additional stay and will likely be back again the next time I'm in Lima.


This is a fantastic hostel in downtown Lima. The staff do everything possible ensure safety and to provide an amazing experience for travelers.

Great staff- nice bar....the communal spaces were very clean. The bathrooms were also very, very clean. Nice showers- good hot water.


Great party room with karaoke, nice rooms with lockers so i felt like my stuff was safe. Pretty convenient location close to the city center.


Great place to meet people, drink, play pool, and sleep. Very affordable and helpful staff. I got a ride from airport that made life easier. Very loud since it's on a main road, but it's loud in Lima in general. Lots of horn beeping. I wish I booked in Miraflores or Barranco districts because that's where I hung out most. $15 soles cab ride down to those districts.


I had a good time at Hostal 1900 and would definitely recommend it for those who want to be near the city center in Lima and meet new people. Staff were helpful and very courteous. However, the kitchen is really poor, lacks utensils and it's not cleaned often. The Hostal is noisy because of its location and although the girl from the agency inside the Hostal was very helpful, the agency is very overpriced and they do not share publicly what is free to do in Lima.
