Good location, good atmosphere, comfy beds, clean, let us hang around after checkout until our night bus. Only downfall was no water pressure in shower.

Helpful and friendly staff and a really clean place. Really good and spacious showers too which was an added bonus. Great location right near the cliff parks and a short walk to the centre of Miraflores which meant that it wasn't too noisy during the night. Nice atmosphere and there's a free pisco sour night on Thursdays which was fun. A good place to stay.

This hostel has a working kitchen and places to eat. The common areas have good wifi. The staff is helpful and it's a good option if you're going to Lima. It's close to the beach and the surfing and it's in the middle of Miraflores more or less. Just a few minutes walk to most things in Miraflores.

This is my second time staying at Backpacker's Family Club. I truly love this place in Lima. The main interest for me is that it is quiet and calmed. It has enough social life without being a "party hostel". The neighborhood is really safe The staff is aweome: Kiara & Juan Pablo are extremely kind and helpful. They always make sure you are happy and comfortable. Christian and Rafa are also always there to make sure you are having a good stay. Thank you guys. I'll come back next month.

I was only one night in Backpackers Family Club, I enjoyed much the stay in the hostel, the receptionists are very good at give me information about the activities and places that a person can perform in Miraflores, Lima Center and Barranco, especially Juan Pablo gave me an excellent information. Also the rooms, bathrooms and common areas very clean. Thank you so much guys.

Staff were very helpful, told us about the area and gave us a very good map of the locality. Location felt safe and was close to banks and supermarket and you could walk to the surf schools on the beach in about 15mins. The wifi in the hostel was very poor and only worked near reception and didnt work all the time. There was a strange smell in the room and the window did not close.

The staff was a bit lost, not everyone spoke English and that eas a bit heard, but otherwise, great hostel! The bathroom was impeccable, really clean and comfortable. I guess we could use some air conditioning in the bedrooms, but they were really comfortable either way. The location was really central. I totally recommend staying at this hostel, great place.

Hostel is in a great location and the surrounding area is great. Very Good value for the money but it's pretty basic. Wifi didn't work in rooms and not enough bathrooms (not good shower) but for the location and price it's very good

I stayed in Backpacker's for a total of 4 nights. I really liked the Hostel and I definitely recommend it for a stay im Lima. Location: Really close to the beach and totally safe. Good Bars are about 5-10 blocks away. Staff: Very Friendly and helpful. Thanks everyone! Atmosphere: The Hostel is located in an old big house so there's a lot of space and you feel at home.

Really liked this place, very chill and relaxing. Also only a few blocks away from the ocean so you can walk and watch the sunset. Met a lot of cool travelers here. If you need help with getting around the city or planning a trip in another city as for Juan Pablo, he helped me out a lot.

Great hostel. It is still pretty new, so there are not many reviews, but this is owned by the same folks that own Backpackers Family House, so trust it. This hostel is good.
