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.

    My experience at the 1900 Hostel was awesome. It was spacious, clean and safe. The staff was very helpful, they arranged transportation for the airport and answered any questions that I had. Nice place on the rooftop to relax. Beautiful bar with pool and game table on the first floor. This historic space is very well maintained. 1900 will be my first choice on my trip back to Peru.

    Great place to meet people and practice Spanish. The bar tender Victor is an absolute legend and is supper helpful with giving local knowledge on where to go and what to buy, places to eat ECT. He also has a great life story and is a great guy to talk to.

    Kind and helpful staff. Not a lot of energy- just people sitting on phones. Single bed room was fantastic. Bathrooms kinda gross. Breakfast decent (had eggs). Location loud but right in town.

    Hostel is nice and Paula at the front desk gave great recommendations. However, I was unable to get any sleep as the room was extremely hot and certain people living in the room were not accommodating of others. Beds creak a lot and any movement can be heard by everyone in the room. Pool area and bar is great place to socialize.

    We enjoyed the hostel but there were a few issues. The male bathrooms were in fairly average knick and the womens bathroom was closed for maintenance for our entire stay. Paula on reception was great though and the rooftop is sick.

    Very Good

    Inside is really cool, could easily be a hotel (I believe it used to be). The location however, is dodgy to say the least. In the day, everything looks fine, just don't go out at night by yourself. I got lost without my phone when going to buy some water, and ended up in a few sticky situations. It was my fault obviously, but I got to see the area at night, and it's not one for the faint hearted.
