Welcome to your base in Lima, 1900 Backpackers Hostel, housed in a cool early 20th century building. Embrace local culture by joining us (and meet some new buddies) at one of our ceviche-making classes, or sip on some herbal coca tea – did we mention it’s free? Your wallet will love happy hour at our full-service bar, complete with a flatscreen TV for catching the latest games, and foosball and pool tables too. There's an outdoor area where you can tuck into your free breakfast, and our balcony is the place for cracking open a bottle of beer at sunset – bliss!


You’ll find us in front of the Lima Art Museum in the bustling La Victoria district. It’s just a short stroll to must-sees like the Magic Water Circuit (get your camera ready to capture mesmerising water and light displays), and the restaurants and bars of Plaza Mayor are only 25 minutes away by foot. For adventuring further afield, head to the Central Bus and Coach Station – just an 8-minute walk. High flyers coming in from the airport can jump in a taxi and be with us in 25 minutes.

Rooms and Dorms

If you’re travelling in a small group or pair, feel free to spread out your stuff in one of our private rooms. We have singles, doubles, triples and twins, all with either en-suites or shared bathrooms. Feeling sociable? You might prefer one of our mixed or female-only dorms. All rooms have free linen and security lockers for your stuff, as well as a reading light for those midnight page-turners.

Extras and activities

Every traveller needs a down day once in a while. Whip up some healthy snacks in our communal kitchen, or catch up with people back home using our free computers and Wi-Fi. Quiet evenings call for relaxing in the TV lounge with a movie or a book. When you've rested, join one of our free walking tours the next day – we love showing our guests around this buzzing city.

    This hostel was very nice, I stayed during covid so there weren't many guests but the staff was very friendly and the location was very convenient. They have many options for activities but i unfortunately stayed during a time many people weren't traveling. I would definitely stay again.

    I had a great time at 1900 Backpackers! The hostel is clean, beds are confortable and the facilities are in great condition. The hostel is centrally located. Because of Covid there wasn't many other guests, but the staff took great care of me and helped me plan my trip in Perú. Manuel was always available for a chat, Mario knew were to find the best street food in town and Paola was super helpful in helping me figure how to travel around with the Covid restrictions!

    Got stuck here when Peru went into lockdown and am so glad I was here! The staff were so friendly and made you feel welcome, and were so dedicated during the quarantine to making sure guests were okay! The rooftop is huge and was perfect for hanging out, made lots of friends during my stay here. Never had to wait for the bathroom, breakfast was nice and the lunches they did for cheap were amazing too! Will be returning to this hostel when travel is normal and sights are open again; thank you!!

    There is no doubt that 1900 Backpackers is the most hospitable, wonderful, memorable, & generous stay I've ever had. Many other travelers & I were stuck here during the quarantine and ended up staying for 3+ weeks waiting for repatriation flights. But through it all the confusion and unknowns the staff was nothing but accommodating, helpful, and so so kind. The rooftop space/kitchen, plentiful bathrooms and the spaciousness of the property made such a difference for us. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!

    Amazing building and the double room was beautiful - it felt like being in a much more expensive hotel. Staff were friendly and flexible. Great facilities like kitchen, pool table, etc. The road outside and the building itself are a little noisy (just because it’s so big and echoey) but generally really glad we stayed there.

    Loved the historic aspect of this hostel, and the location is perfect for seeing a different side of Lima outside of Miraflores. Hot showers and friendly guests! Isabel was super helpful as well! I don't know if it was a normal thing or not (maybe due to COVID and decreased numbers of guests?), but my one and only complaint was that there were almost zero lights on in the building, meaning when the sun set, it was dark - and very dark.
