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

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. The double room with private bathroom was spacious with a cupboard and safe, VERY strong fan, hot shower with great water pressure and comfortable beds. There was also a bar fridge in our room...

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
