5 recommended budget hostels in Barranco

In previous post we have given references so that you can find a lodging to your measure in Lima, first in Miraflores, and later in the financial district of San Isidro. To finish this series about accommodations in the 'City of Kings' we want to propose some options in the bohemian district of Barranco.

If in San Isidro we have focused on luxury hotels, in Barranco hostels and budget hotels predominate, with the exception of Hotel B, a luxury space that opened its doors in 2014 in a mansion in Belle Époque style and is very close to the Municipal Park of Barranco.

In addition to a gym, spa, and rooms with all amenities, Hotel B has a Mediterranean cuisine restaurant with the well-known chef Óscar Velarde. The standard studio for two people is priced at about S / 1,100 (US$ 339). www.hotelb.pe/es

But as we said, Barranco is characterized by a greater number of cheap accommodation and Backpackers, one of them is the well-known The Point, a backpacker lodging that has recently thas reached 10 years and is located close to the Plaza del Distrito.

Its entrance faces a beautiful lawn overlooking the Pacific Ocean; inside, the space has a large courtyard with hammocks, where they celebrate parties. In the evenings the hostel offers the possibility of guiding its guests to different places in Barranco to dance and have a good time. The shared room is around S/ 34 (US$ 10,5). www.thepointhostels.com

Hostel Kaminu is located in the beautiful Bajada de Baños, a steep street that takes its name because it leads directly to the bathing area of the beach on the Costa Verde. Along this street you can find several restaurants and the Art Gallery Gato Tulipán, where you can enjoy a coffee or a good craft beer. Despite being old, Kaminu has the charm of a barrancan house, and has a terrace with bar that offers a beautiful sunset view over the Pacific. The shared room is at S/ 30 (US$ 10). www.kaminu.com

Barranco's Backpackers Inn is located very close to our last recommendation and is a few meters from the Municipal Park, The Malecón and the Barranco bars area. This simple hostel has several shared rooms, a small cafeteria, Internet room and highlights its customer service, willing to help backpackers offering activities or tours around the city. Shared rooms can be booked from S / 36 (US$ 11). www.barrancobackpackersperu.com

Our fourth recommendation is also very close to the Municipal Park and the Pedro de Osma Museum; we are talking about the D'Osma B & B, a nice hostel with wooden structures that offers a rustic and welcoming enviroment to their guests. It is also very close to The Malecón and it has wonderful views of the Pacific Ocean. Cozy and tidy rooms can be booked from S / 160 (US$ 50). www.deosma.com

To finish  this post we wanted to recommend a hidden gem: The Second Home Peru, which although not as affordable  as the previous ones (the room round S / 450/ US$ 139), has the enormous privilege of being - as well as lodging for tourists - the workshop of Víctor Delfín, one of the most famous artists of this country.

While Delfín is working on the bottom floor, her daughter runs the guest floor, which has eight bedrooms with stunning views of the Pacific. The house itself is gorgeous, with huge wooden ceilings and structures that look out onto El Malecón, an outdoor pool and an interior that could be considered an art gallery, with the works of Dolphin decorating the house. Even if you do not plan to stay there, at least try to see it, you will not regret it. www.secondhomeperu.com
