Young backpackers in the know opt to stay in trendy Barranco when visiting Lima, a hip seaside suburb that boasts a plethora of bohemian bars, cafés, and restaurants.

Situated in the heart of Barranco on a side-street that overlooks the sea, The Point has been a favorite among backpackers since opening its doors way back in 2002. A lively bar and regular themed-parties make it a great place to meet other travelers, while friendly staff and lots of fun and games add to the backpacker vibe.

Kaminu Backpackers Hostel

Occupying an enviable position on the famous pedestrian passage known as the Bajada de los Incas, Kaminu is just minutes away from the suburb’s best street art and cafés. Expect to find an abundance of colorful artwork throughout the hostel itself, as well as free city tours and group dinners which focus on fine Peruvian gastronomy. A lively rooftop bar is great for mingling, yet the noise level is entirely reasonable when it comes time to sleep.

Barranco's Backpackers Inn

Hostel

This friendly, family-run hostel has been converted from a lovely old two-story mansion to offer backpackers a relaxed place to stay in Barranco. Situated just one block from the Bridge of Sighs, the location is about as good as it gets. Nevertheless, it’s the sociable and intimate vibe that garners the most rave reviews, partly due to the fact the hostel only has six rooms.

Passion Barranco

Perhaps the cheapest place to stay in Barranco, expect to find plenty of nomadic South American hippies passed out in the hostel’s rather cramped and uninspiring dorms. Still, if you’re up for practicing your Spanish and don’t mind the smell of marijuana in the morning, Passion Barranco is unbeatable value at less than US$7 per night.

Family Hostel Barranco

Budget Hotel

As the name suggests, this hostel offers quiet, family-orientated, private rooms which aren’t really suitable for the rowdy backpacking crowd. The friendly owners are known to go out of their way to help guests feel at home, while the quality of the décor and amenities amount to excellent value for money. It’s within a short walking distance of Barranco’s best attractions.
