“Not Budget nor Good for Solo Travelers”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

While the family is nice and the cremoladas (snow cones made of condensed milk) are tasty, this wasn't at all what I expected for a best bargain travel award winner. Despite a big sign on the street that says 15 soles a person, the price was 40 soles for a high season room for one. They did explain later as they held up an updated sign that it was just old, but it's still a raw deal for a solo traveler as they told me (again despite the sign) that there were no single rooms. I was put in a room with three beds by myself near the kitchen on the first floor that was constantly loud with other guests and some thumping bass from who knows where. Bugs constantly entered the room at night despite only having an unfortunate window that couldn't even be latched shut to the hallway (not safe!) and a closed skylight. There are a lot of television stations available, with many English options and the shower is both hot and has great pressure. The former kitchen set up in my bathroom was strange. The kitchen was a former restaurant kitchen and has a lot of equipment but zero shared things (not even salt), as I was coldly told by another guest. Overall an unpleasant situation that wasn't helped by having the family tell me it's calmer and quieter in upstairs as I left after one awful night.

Good value for money, small with about 5 rooms. Everything was nice and clean, excellent hot showers, comfy beds, cable tv and access to a decent kitchen. 30 seconds to the beach and Huanchaco seafront in a nice, safe feeling side street.

Highly recommend this place, cheaper in town but stay here if nothing for the friendly staff and wonderfully excentric owner with his hats and obsession for cleanliness!

Would stay again.

We stayed here just for one night. The owner, Alberto, was friendly and helpful. We hadn't made a reservation and ended up in room number 1, which had a window on to the stairwell. Unfortunately, the curtains didn't close properly, meaning we had a bit less privacy in our room than we would have liked. However, the room was clean and comfortable, and the shower had good pressure and reliable hot water.

It was also a small issue that you needed the owners to let you out of the hostel. They were not always easy to find. This was also the case when trying to get in, and we were left standing on the street for a few minutes at night, which was a little uncomfortable.

Room Tip: We would not recommend room number 1 if you have the choice.

This was a great place to stay in Huanchaco. This was by far the cleanest place we stayed in all of Peru. The owner is a wonderful and eccentric man that makes home made ice cream. Even if you don't get the chance to stay here make sure you stop in and get an ice cream :)

I came in this hostel during a few weeks and I enjoyed it..
First of all, the owners are really nice. You can ask them informations like how to go to visit the archeologic sites and you can take Peruvian cook lessons with the owner.
If you like ice creams, they make something like that called "cremoladas" : it's made of ice and fruit's purée. It's really tasted, you have the impression to eat the real fruit but frozen.
Besides, it's calm, next to the beach (2 min) and there is a grocery next to it too.
There is a TV in each room with a lot of channels in Spanish but also in English. Each room has his proper bathroom and there is a kitchen that you can share with the other guests.
If you make a reservation on the internet, you can ask the owner to come to pik you up in the bus compagny for example.
Finally, it's a clean place where you will spend a very nice moment.

At first sight, I was amazed about so many positive opinions about this hostel in this platform.., but it sounded strange that they were offering such prices and still having a good service. So we gave it a try and it happened to be true. The owners, I mean the whole family were extremely friendly and always helpful, it was like staying with friends.
Rooms are quite clean and there is always someone taking care of no strangers getting inside the hotel. I even forgot my cell phone in the restaurant next door (really cool place to eat, just forgot the name!) recommended by the owners, and, against all odds (even in Europe) people there took good care of my cell and gave it to me the next morning.
I am looking forward to coming back to this place sometime in the near future, if you happen to forget your travel guide, ask the owners! they will give you good advice about anything you want to know..

This hotel was great value. It was clean, secure and welcoming. The owners were really friendly and helpful, offering advice on local transport, where the market was etc. We were offered a nicer room after the first night when one became available. It was nice to be able to cook, although the kitchen could have done with a few more utensils, plates etc. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have a sea view - if you lean out of the window a bit!
