Hotel Description

Ever since it was founded in a handsome Republican-era Barranco mansion in 2002, The Point Hostel Lima has been a party destination for backpackers from around the world. Cheap, safe, great for meeting people, surrounded by the city's best nightlife and just steps from the beach—no wonder it's so popular.

There are over 50 comfortable beds distributed among dorms and private rooms. The dorms can hold a maximum of four, six and nine guests while the private rooms come in singles and twins. All of the rooms share co-ed bathroom and shower facilities.

The hostel offers fast Internet access, pool and ping pong tables, international calls, hammocks, a book exchange, a TV lounge with a DVD collection, secure parking (motorbikes welcome) and a kitchen.

The staff are excellent guides to Lima's exciting nightlife, which starts right at the hostel's own The Pointless Bar where an event is held almost every single night. Additional services include surfboard and bike rentals, Spanish classes, airport transfers, laundry service and tours.


The Point Hostel Lima is located in the historic bohemian district of Barranco near incredible nightlife, restaurants, cafés, shops and the beach. The area is safe and friendly and affords easy access to a wide range of attractions.

Food & Beverage

The hostel's restaurant serves a complimentary continental breakfast each morning as well as lunch and dinner. A BBQ is held every week.

The Pointless Bar is housed in a decorated wooden shed in the hostel's backyard. It's the place where guests hang out, socialize, drink and play pool. The menu features approximately 30 different cocktails as well as a selection of imported beers and most nights events such as competitions, parties and shows are held.
