    This was a perfect location for me to end my trip in Peru. I was able to relax and cram some last minute work in before heading to the airport. Everyone is so friendly and helpful here. When I come back to Peru I definitely plan on staying at ATMA again!

    We stayed at ATMA for around a month and can honestly say it is one of the best hostels we have ever stayed in. The outdoor areas are very relaxing and their is a fantastic view of sunset from the rooftop. The location is perfect, just a stones throw from the ocean and a short walk to a fantastic local market. the owner is an amazing guy who was very welcoming and helped us out in a difficult situation and thanks to him I will always look back on my time at ATMA with very fond memories.

    This place is absolutely amazing ; the atmosphere is chill, it is easy to meet people: hammocks, terrasses with a view on the beach and a rooftop to watch the most beautiful sunsets. It is the cleanest hostel I have been to in Peru: big/convenient kitchen + comfy rooms + clean bathrooms. Yoga studio+classes are very good and cheap. The owner is really nice, welcoming and always here if you need help/reco. Very cheap compare to the quality of the services you get. I will definitely come back!

    Great hostel, perfectly positioning so you always see the sunset over the beach at end of the road, small, clean and really nicely designed, we stayed here during the quarantine for the corona outbreak and we were all grateful to get stuck at such an amazing space!! Dondoco is a legend!

    Stayed at ATMA for a week and I would have stayed forever. The atmosphere is really chilled, everyone is lovely and it's a great place to know other travellers. Many toilets, always clean, as well as a well equipped kitchen. There's a yoga studio with very affordable classes every day. Just a minute away from the beach and a 10 mins walk from the town centre where you can buy fresh fruits and veggies from the market. In a nice side street so very quiet at night.

    Could be my favourite hostel in Peru... just loved being there! You can tell a lot of time and effort went into making it a nice place to sleep, hang out, and relax in. There's everything you could want, from potable water and a kettle in the kitchen, to personal nightlights and plenty of plug sockets in the rooms, to info boards about using public transport for local trips. Even before you arrive on your nightbus at a random hour you get a super welcoming and helpful email with useful info.

    Really calm and nice hostel if you’re in for a couple of days of chill. Easy to socialise due to the small size. Fine kitchen and free water and salt. Nice with the yoga opportunities as well. Definitely the place I would stay if going to Huanchaco again.

    Unreal hostel. Super laid back vibes, hammocks and chill spaces everywhere, great rooftop for watching the sunset, lovely volunteers, really clean, great kitchen facilities, and cute pets. Definitely not a party hostel, but can have some drinks in the evening and then head elsewhere if you want some fun. Will definitely go back next time I'm in huanchaco.
