“Ok place, just a bit quiet and not too much going on.”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

This is an OK place and no more than that. Rooms are basic but clean. Bathrooms are clean and have toilet paper if a bit old. Showers are ok but there isn't that much hot water. Staff are friendly and helpful. Common areas are spacious and have comfy sofas and a tv. Kitchen is a bonus.

I think it is a little overpriced for what it is, but as it's a capital city I'm not really surprised.

Its really cold aswell as all the doora and windows are left open. Probably ok in the summer but in September its not good.

Breakfast is bread rolls with jam and butter with coffee and tea. You can have as much as you want but that is all that is available.

There is also some construction work going on over on the next block that goes from 7am - 6pm and it is loud. Not really a fault of the hostel but worth knowing if you are a light sleeper and want to sleep in.

I love this place and the staff is really nice. Everything you need you will find here. There is as well a basic breakfast included, it's not special, but a good start in the morning. When i'm going back to Lima ... I will stay here again. Wifi is ok, rooms are ok, futbolin, kitchen, outside tables, inside lounge with 42" flat screen. What else do you need?

I am a girl travelling alone and I stayed at Family house backpackers in Lima for quite a long time. The owners were lovely, they looked after me beautifully. The building is clean, the beds are comfortable and it has a great atmosphere. The staff make it a great place to be and concentrate on getting all the guests to chat with each other. The best hostel I have stayed in yet! I will miss you guys.

I stayed two nights in this hostel, and I enjoyed my time here. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful! Included breakfast consisted of bread w/ butter and jam, tea and coffee. The location in Miraflores is good, a bit far from Parque Kennedy but close to the coast for great views.

It was a bit cold a night (mid-August), but extra blankets were provided which helped. I stayed in the 7-person dorm downstairs and I mentioned that there was a slight damp smell - hopefully that's taken care of soon.

Has all you need in a hostel. Clean, friendly staff, good beds, great location. Can't go wrong staying here. The staff are very helpful, and provide you with a map of the area upon arrival at the hostel. I felt comfortable and safe during my stay at Backpacker's.
