The Point Lima was opened in 2002, as the first real backpacker hostel in Peru. The Point is located in a beautiful colonial mansion in the heart of Barranco, one of Lima’s most vibrant districts. Tucked away on a quiet side street and facing the ocean, we’re only a few blocks from the Barranco plaza: with dozens of shops, restaurants, bars, clubs, and other attractions. Inside the hostel, you’ll find our friendly (English speaking) staff to be some of the best in Peru. We can book attractions for you directly from the front desk, including paragliding, sand boarding, surfing lessons, walking tours, and more. We’re also happy to assist you with purchasing bus tickets or arranging airport transportation once you’re ready to continue on your journey... though we won't be surprised if you don't want to leave!
During the day, our TV room and courtyard provide great places to unwind and hang out with new friends, or maybe use our blazing fast WiFi to Skype with people you haven’t seen in a while. Our restaurant, the FooKing Kitchen, is open from 8am to 10pm every day, and serves a variety of Peruvian dishes as well as traditional bar food.
At night, drop by the PointLess Bar to check out the drink specials of the day, and maybe play a few rounds of Beer Pong or Killer Pool (yes, our pool table is flat). When the bar closes at 1am, our famous nightlife guide Edwin will take you out to a different club every night, where you’ll get free entry and no waiting in lines as you experience the best of Lima’s nightlife.
