Lonely Planet review
A downtown hot spot, this old mansion designed by Gustavo Eiffel is revamped with modern design touches, though it maintains the marble floors and other turn-of-the-century flourishes. For a hostel it’s downright gorgeous. Rooms are smart and simple, with bunks shoulder-to-shoulder. There’s a tiny kitchen and cool common spaces, like a pool room with bar and red chandelier.
Though the location is riddled with traffic exhaust during the day, there’s the plus of having a premier museum right across the street.
Our independent authors have visited 1900 Backpackers Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Lima.
