“Friendly and good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2012

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!

It is just unbelievable how friendly they are, always there to help, give information or just to have a chat !
Very concerned about our well being as well as our security.
You really feel home thanks to them !
The hostel is 30s from the bus line to Trujillo, as well as 30s from the beach ! There is a quiet garden opposite the hostel.
It is definitely a relaxed place to stay in Huanchaco.

After reading the many positive TripAdvisor reviews we headed straight to Oceanio – thankfully!
The hotel is at a great location (a couple meters of the beach) the rooms are immaculate with whitewashed walls, private bathroom, hot showers, cable TV and free WiFi.

There are a range of rooms, some with beach views, some with street views. Our matrimonial room had a large window to the side street which is very quiet. Rooms are cleaned and fresh towels supplied daily.
There is a kitchen for guest use, which is rather sparsely equipped.

The owners Carlos and Esperanza are super friendly and security conscious: the front door is locked at all the time. Carlos is also full of information about the area and clearly enjoys talking to his guests, giving suggestions for daytrips. (we followed his suggestion to visit "Sol e Luna" by public transport and enjoyed it very much)


All that for a bargain price of 15 Soles per person (low season).

By the way:
Some of the beachfront restaurants are overpriced especially the seafood places. We had an incredible and huge Ceviche at "El Pescadito" for 22 Soles. It's located on Calle Grau 482, one street behind the beachfront places.

only 30 soles for a double, that´s 11 USD, for that we got a huge room with hot water, cable TV, Wifi, plenty of room shelving and security lock for storage and a window to the quiet street incl view to the beach 2 mins down the street. Rooms are cleaned every day, fresh towels withour even having to ask for them, at this price? No kidding! The kitchen was renovated 2 days ago, fridge, stove, dining table. The hosts take security very seriously, rather come and unloch the front gate for you every time rather than ever leaving the door unattended. Very helpful and pleasent - Thank you very much, we had a great stay - so much so we extented from two days to six!
There are rooms without windows which would be ok for overnight, I guess.

Room Tip: room with a window

A double room with private bathroom is 30soles (15 per person).

This place is a bargain! It is perfect for the budget traveller, such a great price and a well looked after hostel.

In the room there was a large double bed with a bed side table on each side. There was shelving and enough storage space for two rucksacks. There was a TV with cable. There was also a fan in the room but this was never needed as it was chilly. In the bathroom there was a powerful shower with hot water. At first the water temperature was really low but it was only because the hostel was out of gas, as soon as the owners were made aware of this they changed it immediately.

There is good free WiFi, it worked quickly and I was able to download successfully on it.

Breakfast is not included. (There are many restaurants offering breakfast at seriously rip off prices for not much food. However the Swiss restaurant up a side street, next to My Friend hostel......sorry I don't know the street name.....offered the best breakfast bargain, 7soles for a hot drink, a jug of juice, 2 pieces of bread, butter, jam AND either a pancake, omelette, waffle or eggs. In the evening they also did great pasta deals.)

The hostel is really well looked after, the room and the bathroom were cleaned everyday.

The location is great. It is not facing the sea but it is only a few seconds walk from the beach front!

Also as everyone has previously commented the owners are very friendly and helpful. The male owner speaks a little English which is useful too.

I do have a couple of negatives for this hostel though. I stayed in a room which didn't have a window to outside, the only window was looking onto the corridor. This made the room very stuffy and dark. Also the curtain was very thin and it was really easy to look into our room from the corridor. I ended up putting a blanket over the curtain to make it more private. So my advice would be try and get a room facing the front of the hostel. These rooms have large windows which you can open and they seemed a lot more spacious and airy.

Also one of my hostel pet hates is not being given a key to the main entrance. It is so frustrating to have to be let in and out of where you are staying. This hostel does not give you a key to the main entrance. The owners would often lock the entrance so you couldn't even get out, never mind get in, without ringing the bell to get the owner to open it for you. I would often be waiting a while to get in and out because they wouldn't be around.

But overall for the price you can't really complain! Everywhere else in Huanchaco is at least double!

Huanchaco.............. is an average beach town. It's not really for beach lovers it's more for surfers. Also the restaurants and bars are incredibly expensive, a real tourist rip off. It's an ok place to chill out for a few days to break up the long bus journeys south BUT it's nothing to look forward to or get excited about.

Cannot speak more highly of this hospedaje, owned by a lovely friendly couple, double rooms with private bathrooms, plenty of hot water and cable TV to boot, ours even had a view of the surf from the window! All for only S/15 (US$6) each per night. It's clean, has THE most comfortable beds, and they allow you to use the kitchen too. Couldn't be more secure and safe if it tried, Carlos personally lets you in the door every time. 10/10 in our books felt like staying in a flashy hotel compared to other rooms available in Huanchaco (we looked at 3 others).
