    Mama's was a great spot. I've been to Lima a handful of times and this time, I stayed for a layover. Mama wasn't there but Patricia, her niece was. Patricia was very attentive and even waited up until 2 in the morning to let me in. Understanding that I was pretty tired, she extended breakfast and encouraged me to sleep in for a bit. She also offered me space to hang onto my luggage so that i could explore the city. Thanks to Mama but especially to Patricia!!

    We had a fantastic one night stay here as we were only in Lima for a night. We were picked up and brought back to the airport the following morning which was organised by the hostel. There is a very friendly and family feel to this hostel. The beds were the comfiest we have been on in the last two weeks. I’d highly recommend mama backpackers.

    Beautiful, homey hostel. I paid extra for a late airport pickup and transportation to the hostel which was a nice service. Mama helped me hail a taxi so that I wouldn't get gauged on prices and she was very helpful with everything. Perfect place to stay for a short quick to Lima!

    Mama and Carlos were friendly and prompt. I came in to Lima late and left early. Even with my short stay they were warm and gracious. I did not have a chance to explore from the hostel to review on location specifically but drive to/from airport was about 20 minutes. Great place that I would stay again and recommend!

    Good place near the airport , really safe and clean but there was no atmosphere or close 'touristic places' just restaurants /fast food. Would stay if I'm waking up early the next day. We had an early flight and the owner said she would give us coffee and bread but I guess she forgot :,( we didn't eat anything haha

    Mama Backpackers is amazing. It is run by a VERY sweet old lady that makes the place feel more like a home than a hostel. We were only connecting through Lima so stayed the night but she got up early and made us breakfast before organizing us an Uber ride 🙌🏼

    If you’re looking for somewhere quiet to spend a night before or after a flight, this hostel is perfect. It’s 15 minutes’ drive from the airport so you can avoid all the Lima traffic. The facilities are great and the family are very welcoming. It felt more like a guesthouse than a hostel! It’s probably not ideal if you want to be closer to the touristy parts of Lima such as Miraflores though as it’s quite far.

    Best staging spot for next day flights or buses: 15min from airport, 10min from North Bus Station. Hostel itself is converted 3-4 floor apartment building and it's SUPER homey. Very comfortable beds, AMAZING breakfast. Great common area and rooftop.

    Place is fairly close to airport and very clean. However, while we were asleep, backpacks were stolen. We were staying in bunk room and left our bags (removed valuables) in area outside of room where lockers are. We did not lock our bags (would not fit) and didn't want to take in room and disturb others asleep. She did not have a single camera and what we assume was another guest took 3 very large bags down multiple flights of stairs and out the front door. Could 100% be a 1 off incident.
