We stayed here overnight en route from huaraz to cusco. Location is good and we got a warm friendly welcome. Nice communal area and garden. Our room was awful though as it was directly off the kitchen and the mattresses so soft and worn out it was like sleeping curled up in a cereal bowl. Worst bed I've had in...

We arrived at 1 am with Taxi Green. The guy at reception was waiting for us and check in went smoothly, he was helpful with directions the following morning. Rooms were basic but clean. Free wifi available and a nice hot shower. Adequate common area with a kitchen.

We had a nice stay in one of the private rooms of the hostel. Room is spacious and clean. There is a small safe and a small fridge. The airport pickup was also well arranged. Hostel is close to Maido and Parque Kennedy. We would recommend a stay in the hostel.

A small pleasant hostel in the heart of Miraflores. Relaxed and quiet as it is on a side street. Not a new renovation but it is clean and the staff is friendly and will arrange an airport pick up or drop off for you. Really close to all the restaurants and the parks. More B and B than hostel.

A place as good as simple. Very small hostel where you will meet everyone and be living with them like a small family. The staff is very friendly as well and can help you learning Spanish. The only problem is the manager that is very stressfull about everything and about the money !

This hostel has a small garden in the entrance. The hostal is very close to the main street of Miraflores, but in a very calm place. The staff is very professional, very serious and follow strict rules. Everything is very clean, I guess is the cleanest place I've been in 4 months in south America. The breakfast is simple, but...

The only "backpacker" thing about this hostel is the name, we've been in the matrimonial suite with the patio view, very big and comfortable, it has a minibar and safety box. Also the attention is perfect, they are really nice persons. I will definitely come back every time I come to Lima!

We really enjoyed our stay at 151 Backpacker. Our room was really nice and clean. The whole place is really quiet and peacefull. The kitchen is clean and functional: perfect for cooking a quick lunch or a nice dinner. The area is really nice with a nice restaurant district nearby. You can walk to the waterfront or take a bus...
