  • 1900 Backpackers is a fun hostel with a lot of activities (free!). The bar area is nice but the breakfast is extremely poor compared to most hostels, just some bread and jam. The cooking lessons are so fun and authentic. Bathrooms are very old and dirty.

  • The location is excellent, walking distance to the historic centre. The building is an awesome mansion from the beginning of 20 century, with very high ceilings, elegant, noble, really beautiful. The only problem is constant noise from Lima´s incessant traffic. The first thigh I had to buy were earplugs, otherwise you just can´t sleep.
