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... More

This is a lovely small hostel in Miraflores. Excellent location and very friendly staff. The room was clean and the shower nice and hot. Breakfast was basic, but bread was fresh. We complemented it with a yoghurt and cheese brought from supermarket around the corner as we love to have a bit more substantial breakfast, which is apparently not common... More

The room is very basic and expensive for what it offers. The breakfast is basic bread with jam. But that's the rule for whole Peru. The building is old. The location is very good. The neighboorhood is quiet. The hostel has a inner patio. The staff is friendly and helpfull!

We stayed in a double room. The hostel is next to the crown plaza Lima if you are coming in a taxi. It is close to the main square of miraflores district, which is where you want to stay in Lima. It's also close to the supermarket, shopping Centre and the shoreline. It's a great value option in Lima.

This lovely place has only 3private rooms and 2 dorms which allows you to spent quality time resting without too much traffic. Price for private room is reasonable. Wifi works well and breakfast is moderate. If you are looking for the place where you can rest in between your journeys enjoying small private garden and tranquility - this is the... More

Great location in Miraflores, near Costa Verde. Breakfast was very simple: bread, jam and butter. Room was small, the bathroom too. I've seen nicer rooms for the same price. Really cold during the night (our room had a trap in the ceiling that was too high for us to close). When you book at this hostel, they ask you if... More

I really enjoyed 151 on my visit to Lima! My partner and I were at the tail end of a two month backpack trip through Argentina and Peru when we booked a private room here for a few nights. First impressions were great: the place overall was quiet and private, and in many ways an 'oasis' within the hustle and... More
