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

There was also a common area with a tv / DVD player a choice of DVDs, books or magazines to read and just about the most... 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

We found that the location for this hostel was close to all the main attractions in Miraflores and easy enough to get public transport into the city centre. The hostel is set off a quiet street with good security to keep it safe, although always felt safe even when walking at night as it is right next to a large... More

151 is a small and quite hostel close to the center of Miraflores, one of the more popular locations in Lima for travelers. The common area is cosy and the kitchen is a pleasure to use. The sleep quality could do with some work as they use those plastic mattresses that the sheets slide right off. It was a cool... More

Manager was super friendly and helpful, came specifically to introduce himself after we arrived. Really nice, clean room, with a garden at the front and very good security - buzzer entry and locked gate. About 5-10 minute walk from the main square in Miraflores and a supermarket. One of the nicest places we stayed in Peru. Might skip the breakfast... More
