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.

A very nice, small hostel close to the Kennedy park, the beach and the shopping mal larcumar. The best staff ever. Everybody is very friendly and helpfully. Rooms are very clean. I had a very good time there with a lot of fun, thanks for everything

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

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
