Only ate at the restaurant, so can't comment on the accommodation. Restaurant was great value with good food and was always busy while we were there. Good filling option is the spaghetti, garlic bread and coke/sprite for 10 soles! Ate here the 3 nights we srayed in Huanchaco.

My Friend is a wonderful hostel just a block away from the beach in Huanchaco. There is great food, good vibes and most of all, an outstanding surf school. Randal runs awesome 2 hr surf lessons every day for novices like myself, and also does rentals and surf trips up to chicama. I took 3 lessons in a calm section... More

Laid back hostel with clean rooms and comfy beds. If you're looking for a place to chill out and enjoy some good value for money meals, this is it. The place is nicely decorated, staff are very friendly and the owner and her sons go out of their way to help you with what ever you're looking for (surfboard &... More

A budget hostel with budget accommodations. The room was simple but clean and the bed was surprisingly comfortable. The bathroom could use a bit of an upgrade but the hot water in the shower worked well (the ripped and moldy shower curtain, however, could have done a better job at keeping the water in the shower). Nice third floor terrace.... More

This hostel is budget. With that, you get OK accommodation, ugly shared bathrooms, and thin walls. But you get what you pay for and this place doesn't break the bank. However, I gave it 4 stars because what it lacks in facilities is made up by the friendliness and helpfulness of their staff, their awesome restaurant, and their close proximity... More

Ok stay here, the rooftop terrace is nice and the restaurant is good value. Unfortunately I had bed bugs!! So that was a bit of a downer. The shower was good. It is not right in the centre but such a small town this isn't important.

Watched Ireland win the 6 nations here. Really nice staff and a comfortable setting. Food looked good. It's located very close to the beach also. The Señora behind the bar was very friendly and very helpful

I spent three or so nights here with a friend. The room and bathroom was a bit grotty, but then again it was pretty cheap, so you can't really complain too much! However, the bar/restaurant downstairs was great. The food was cheap, but tasty and there were always people around and about, giving it a good atmosphere. The staff were... More

Sooo cheap, but sooo mediocre. If you're a male surfer and coming to Huanchaco to surf 95% of your time and not spend any time in your room then you'll probably love it (and to be fair, that's probably who they market for). Although the staff were so lovely and the food was awesome, we changed hostels after one night.... More

We payed 15 Soles each, for a double room. Cheap cheap! The restaurant downstairs serve really good food, the price is desent. The staff is friendly and helpfull. Many backpackers all over. Great beds, the shower is so-so. They also have a great place to chill out on the top floor. The location is perfecto.
