Top service, location, safe, great wifi, fresh breakfast First timers to Lima and we were greeted with warm hospitality and fantastic service at this hostel B&B.

We spent one night at the hostel. They offer daytrips but breakfast starts only from 7:30 am on. The offered to provide us coffee, juice und bread instead because we left earlier. In fact in the morning the guy was still sleeping and there was nothing to eat and drink. Don't take a room in the first floor, you will... More

I stayed at 151 Backpacker for over a week and found my stay pleasant. The place is clean and quiet with great customer service. Carlos helped me get around the city and plan my trip to Machu Picchu. The hostel is about a 5 minute walk from Larcomar which has a bunch of shops and restaurants. It's also about a... More

This place is a gem. After reading reviews on this place, I am not sure what the other travellers expectations are for a South American bed and breakfast. We have been travelling for three months and this place by far is a absolute delight. The rooms are perfect - spacious, clean, fresh towels daily, mini fridge, tv, radio, amazing hot... More

We have been to quite a few hostels and this wasn't the worst one. Hostel was in a safe neighbourhood near to many shops and restaurants and not far from the Malecon. Staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean, if small. Same for the bathroom. There was hot water. Breakfast was the usual of rolls and butter and... More

We stayed for 2 nights in a double room with private bathroom. The room was basic but clean and the water hot. The hostel is in a great location in the heart of Miraflores and walking distance from all the main sights. The staff are helpful and organised our taxi to and from the airport. All in all a good...

I stayed at this hostel for a week recovering after a busy three weeks of travel with family during a six-month trip through South America. 151 was just what I needed at the time: relatively quiet both in atmosphere in and around the hostel, lack of a fist-pumping party vibe, responsive staff, and smaller quarters. I stayed in the four-person... More

Overall my experience was great. Then I tried to have one of my good friends of a long time over for a beer, and they wouldn't even let us sit outside and chat with each other. We were told guests were not allowed and that my friend had to leave immediately. This was disappointing as we had much to catch... More
