    This place has heart. I only stayed there for a short time on layovers, but I was very impressed with the hospitality, organization, and cleanliness.

    I am traveling alone and needed a safe, easy place to land in Lima after traveling. Mama Backpackers is it. The breakfast is incredible and included, plus there is an incredible vegetarian restaurant across the street which is rare in Peru, along with Antillea who is so kind. Lots of tea, filtered water, great wifi and a hot shower.

    The hostel host was amazing. I showed up late and left early. She was there to great me and was up making me fresh squeezed orange juice and eggs 3 hours later, before I left to catch a flight. I wish I could have stayed longer!

    I didn't have much time to appreciate my stay here. However, I have to say that Mama cared a lot about how I felt there, the time I arrived and things like breakfast. I would definitely like stay here again.

    Loved this place. Picked us up at the airport from our late flight and were super patient and kind while they waited for us to get through customs. Rooms are clean. Breakfast was delicious. Would definitely recommend.

    There’s a reason this hostel is rated so high. It’s everything you need from a hostel and more. The staff is SO nice and accommodating. I had a very early flight and a staff member got up at 3am to make sure I got in my Uber safely. Cannot recommend them enough.

    I was greeted warmly by Justine and her cats. Justine asked me the time of my flight and quickly made suggestions on the time I should grab an Uber. My room was comfortable with air conditioning. I slept well in the quiet room. Early in the morning, Justine made me breakfast of toast, eggs & fruit juice. After licking my plate, I called an Uber. Justine walked me to and waited outside until my driver arrived. She opened the front door to make sure we were going to the International Airport

    I am a solo traveler and Mama Backpackers was a nice place to stay on my layover in Lima. The rooftop terrace was cute and the room and bathroom were very clean. The included breakfast was also good. Would definitely stay here again.
