Party, but bad kitchen facilities, and some kind of disorganization

Here you will meet a lot of laid-back backpackers. Its a nice atmosphere. There are offered a lot of possibilities to distract (billiard, table-tennis, own bar, theme-parties, watching tv in a group of ten people). But some important things are in a bad condition or missing. When we stayed there just one of the two computer was working and both of them are really "used" condition. We've never cooked in the kitchen, because it was not at all clean and important things were missing. The double-rooms had a bad smell. The guys from the reception are more better to go partying, than to organize arrivals or give proper information. Furthermore here you cannot pay with your credit-card.


Small but lively!

This was the first hostel we stayed in, in S. America,and it was perfect for it. I'm used to hostels so expected not so clean bathrooms, and rooms that are basic, but the girl i was with wasnt, but by the end of our time there she was converted by the friendly atmosphere. we only stayed a couple of nights but it was brilliant, check out the salsa club/bar round the corner, it is an experience! The kitchen is large for how many people are actually there. The bar is great, we were in there most nights for constant pool games. Lima itself really didnt impress but the point did! the free breakfast was something of a disappointment but hey ho!


Best hostel in Peru in the coolest city of South America!

This place kicks ass! The Point has amazing staff who will take care of you day and night. The bar is great, the food is good, and the facilities are superb for a party hostel! Lima has great nightlife and it will keep you definitely staying much longer than you planned for. Best thing is that the boys of The Point know the best places to go each night and they get you in for free as well!


Excellent, friendly staff, great breakfast, best bar in town

We stayed there twice. The second time we arrived the manager said "Welcome home" and the girls at the receptions were so friendly that we felt like living in a nice friendly family. Thanks a lot for the surf lessons.

family Hecht around the world

I was there in Dec. 2004. It was my first experience of a backpacker and it was great. I traveled all over Peru after that Iquitos, Arequipa, Cusco and stayed in backpackers. The Point offers a great atmosphere and very good staff it offers a lot more than any other place in terms of space, kitchen, bar and homely atmosphere. Please buy the dogs a tennis ball and give them a kiss. (I am sure the bathrooms will be renovated at The Point sometime soon.)

Fantastic place, great staff, friendly and secure.


I visited the Point and though I liked the location and the place itself (TV, patio, outside bar, pool table, kitchen, Internet etc. were nice to have), I did not care for the staff. They seemed to have a little exclusive club composed of themselves and long-term guests of The Point, and their behavior made those of us only staying for a night or two feel unwelcome like we were intruding upon their house and their private party. I think if you plan on hanging out in Barranco for an extended period of time and really enjoy the company of smug Australians and New Zealanders, that The Point might be just the right place. Otherwise, I would look for somewhere else. But what a cool building . . . and there was hot water . . .
