Great hostel!!!..Staff are really friendly and speak perfect English. Bar area was great for meeting new people and dorms are far enough away that you can get a decent night's sleep if you want. Location is also great, right in the Historic Center of Lima and just 15 mins from Plaza de Armas.

Everything up to standard, but I personally do not prefer chain hostels.
The bilding is very nice, and the bar is good, but the location is very bad!! There is a lot of street noise, horrible. The computers didn't do it. The staff is only concerned with one another. Not the best hostel.
It was nice to stay at your hostel. Thanks.

Only stayed for one night - late arrival and early start - so a bit difficult to judge everything. However, we were given a great welcome and the staff were very helpful when we were planning our next steps. Easy to find (if you get the bus tell the taxi driver it's opposite the Museum of Modern Art - MILA), clean, good wifi etc. It's an old building with very high ceilings so can be quite echo-y at night. But after 29 hours on a bus I was more than happy to sleep in a very comfortable bed!
Problem with hot water and very noisy hostel
Takes a 15min walking to get to the main square but it's definitely worth it. The building is amazing, both the rooms and the common areas are exquisite and the whole hostel has a very nice atmosphere. Rooms and showers are good as well (hot water and good pressure). Definitely better than staying at Miraflores, the old part of the city is so much better and everything is within walking distance!
Breakfast was limited enough, just bread rolls and coffee. Other than that, great place!
nice hostel near everything in downtown lima. little loud at night given the location but nice place and great staff.
The room wasn't huge, but we had everyhting we needed (table, window, bed). The Backpacker' 1900 style is just beautiful, so you can really enjoy your time at the hostel. The location is good - near the centre, but not too noisy. The staff is dedicated and could help us with all our questions... in english! It's definitely worth the money!
Nice place. Staff was nice too. I only thought the kitchen was a bit small for so many people.
