Backpackers family house, is really a family house. Nice, cosy, good kitchen and nice comon areas. It is clean and the dvd collection looks indeed good (didn't watch any, because Lima is to much fun to stay inside!) The ony thing is that the water in the showers don't have good pressure, but that is all. The beds are comfy... More

I stayed for five nights in the private twin room and had a great experience. It was clean, the staff were friendly and helpful, and it was in a quieter part of town so sleeping was no problem. Above all, the price was right!

This place is a must stay when you are planning a trip to this area. Make sure you are here on Thursday because they offer a free Spanish lesson at 10am the at 9pm after a day exploring the town it's Pisco Sour time. There is no better way to get to know your fellow travelers than over drinks. Not... More

I really liked this place. They picked me up at like 130 in the morning from the airport for a fee I can't remember. Its in a good spot which is close to the ocean and in Miraflores where I felt very safe. The next day I rented a bike from them and bombed around town. They did give me... More

This place was in a great location, just a block from the coast. There was a big supermarket down the street and several local shops in the immediate vicinity. A friend of mine and I stayed in the dorms which were nice enough. The water was warm and towels were provided. Breakfast was they typical pastry with jam and coffee/tea.... More

We got room 7 - a double room with shared bathroom. Our room was simple, containing a desk with a stool, bed, and some hooks to hang things on. However, the bed was pretty comfortable and had a nice fluffy comforter. There were two shared bathrooms on the second floor. One of these two was almost always open when we... More

We found Family Backpackers to be our little home away from home. The owners are excellent and all the staff super friendly and knowledgable. The beds were comfy and there is kitchen facilities available. We went there twice and would definitely go back again!

I came to Family Backpackers' House at the Beginning/Middle of October for 3 nights and 4 days. I was greeted by an excellent staff and showed around. I began making friends instantly. We played a traditional frog game Sapo Sapito. They have comfortable beds, clean kitchen and new spacious fridge. The showers are hot and have good pressure and are... More

Despite my 4/5 rating don't turn up expecting the Hilton, but as far as hostels in Peru go it is pretty good. The staff are friendly and helpful and the hostel is very well located. A supermarket only 5 minutes walk away. There was no hot water in the morning but plenty of hot water at night. The rooms and... More
