“Secure, off the beaten track”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

The place was pretty good for our stay 12/25-12/28/12. It is a safe family run place with a big gate and buildings around the perimeter creating a large terrace garden to walk into. With two young kids, we were at ease letting them run and the garden and play with the owners children and kids of other guests. The only down side are the thin windows and the pet birds which let everyone know when it was 5:30am as they announce daylight approaching. Friendly and accommodating hosts, economical lodging.

We stayed here after a busy two weeks of travel & sightseeing further south in Peru. We thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful, relaxing atmosphere, where we were able to cook if we felt like it. The rooms are a good size & facilities excellent. The staff all work hard at keeping the rooms & grounds spotless. I would highly recommend this hostel.

Nice clean and friendly. We are here in off season so it is about $20/night. Our space has a small kitchen and sitting area and then a bedroom.
Quiet and great for families. The pools are a little chilly but still warmer than the ocean.

Room Tip: Room 1 or 2 or 3 The laundry services are good but I found some others nearby for half the price.

We did stay for a whole week at Huanchaco Gardens, mostly because we were so tired of eating out in Peru and were happy to find a place with own kitchen.
The staff was indeed very nice, but we saw some flaws: The bed was almost broken and sleeping was terrible. Sleeping also got difficult because they have 2 peacocks and they walk on the roof, scared us out in the night! The water in the shower was only lukewarm. They have too many pets on the ground. The bathroom was not always cleaned, not even the toilet.
We felt very safe though.

We stayed for 3 nights and couldn't have asked for more.
It's a great price for big rooms, comfortable beds, nice clean sheets and excellent pillows (a rarity). Very good shower (plenty of hot water) and cable TV. Some rooms even have a fridge and stove.
The grounds are decent, a couple of pools and sun loungers. Right by the beach and only 5 minute gentle stroll to the heart of town - less to most of the beachfront restaurants and bars.
The staff are ultra-friendly and helpful (provided some very good recommendations for foods etc).
What more could you ask for? Certainly at the top of the Huanchaco options.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it.

The staff were so great here, very warm and welcoming. Similarly, the pets were very friendly too, especially the little cocker spaniel puppy who frequently visited our room!

The rooms weren't that great though, very average. TV included with cable. Hot water only occasionally. Not terribly clean. We had a kitchenette which was basic and not that clean, but useful for saving money as we were able to buy foods from the local market. Although there isn't much on offer in the market, best to go to Ica to stock up on food if you want to cook for yourself.

they have a restaurant but we didn't eat there and didn't see many others doing so either.

Free wifi, but it is a really poor connection.

they had a swimming pool but the area was too cold to go in it.

They have peacocks cooped up in a small cage which I was really upset about. they say they have them for the tourists.

Quiet location though, just a very short walk from the sea. We had some good nights sleep there!
