Pirwa Hostal Backpackers Lima
An oldie but a goodie, the Miraflores locale of this popular Peruvian hostel chain is widely considered their best. Above all else, backpackers love the hostel’s social vibe thanks to amenities such as a rooftop terrace, a well-stocked kitchen, foosball tables and a home cinema. Super cheap dorm beds just sweeten the deal.
Loki Hostel Lima
Hankering for a crazy fiesta? Then book yourself a bed in Loki Lima, the Miraflores addition of a raucous South American party franchise. As you would expect from a Loki hostel, the in-house bar is pumping every night of the week with an army of fun-loving young backpackers. Better yet, a plethora of nearby bars and clubs mean it’s all too easy to let the good times roll.
Flying Dog Hostel B&B
A long-time Lima favorite, the Flying Dog B&B is located right in the heart of Miraflores, meaning all the neighborhood’s coolest restaurants and bars are just a short stroll away. High ceilings in this bright and cheerful hostel ensure the place never feels cramped while a well-equipped games room and stylish downstairs bar keep guests entertained after a long day exploring the city.
The Llama Brothers Hostel
Travelers looking for a chic boutique on a backpacker’s budget should check out The Llama Brothers, a funky Miraflores hotel whose private rooms work out only slightly more per person than a hostel. Although it’s not exactly five-star, the high-quality bedding and decor make it excellent value for traveling groups.
Dragonfly Hostels Lima
Comfortable beds, a convenient location, free breakfast and friendly staff ensure a steady stream of backpackers arrive each day to this popular Miraflores hostel. Above all else, however, the place is a hit for its funky rooftop terrace complete with beanbags, hammocks and foosball – the perfect place to hang out and meet some fellow backpackers.
Quaint, cozy, and brimming with antiques, the homely atmosphere of this rather eccentric hostel is a hit with the more mature backpacking crowd. A lack of a bar means travelers can actually get a good night’s sleep, while the ultra-friendly staff and owner are adept at helping guests relax and feel at home.
Hostel Kokopelli Lima
Made by backpackers for backpackers, the Kokopelli chain has earned a solid reputation for its funky decor and quality amenities. The Lima locale is famously social, not least due to a bopping bar and daily city tours which make it easy to meet other travelers. Street noise can be a little intense on weekends but nothing a good set of earplugs can’t handle.
