Property Description

We offer a charming and calm spot in the middle of Huanchaco´s lively life yet relaxing and chill surf/Yoga home. The beach is 10 steps away from the Hostel with the best surf spots right there for a surfer to observe and run out to catch the best wave of the day. Yoga is a great way of reaching spiritual health and wholeness. After a day of surfing try out one of our Sunset Yoga sessions to wind down with a beautiful view of the sunset. We also offer healing retreats/meditation sessions for those seeking physical, mental or spiritual healing. This is great place and time to go inward, accessing your compassion and inner Light.

The hostel is situated in the heart of Huanchaco and just steps away from the beach. We are situated in front of the Municipality´s soccer court. It has easy access to buses/taxis that go straight to the city of Trujillo which is just 15 minutes away by car. The airport of Huanchaco is a 10 min ride from the hostel. The ruins of Chan Chan are a 10 min ride from the hostel by bus.

    Moksha was perfect. Located right in front of the beach walking distance to the market and anything else you could possibly want or need. The people at moksha were super friendly and made sure all your needs were taken care of. 100% would recommend this place if you are in Trujillo. The restaurant also has amazing food.

    Our star was wonderful!!! There must've been a miscommunication when our room was reserved so they upgraded us to a really nice room with a private bathroom and terrace for no extra charge!! Moksha is so conveniently located and it offers everything that you need from surf lessons to yoga classes and tasty veggie burgers and vegan cookies. We would ABSOLUTELY stay again!

    Loved the staff and atmosphere at Moksha. Would stay there for their cookies alone. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a 4 bedroom private and after some bed malfunctions they kindly accommodated by giving us a double bed private.

    Overall super chill vibe, though the staff felt unapproachable. But location and facilities were incredible.

    Friendly backpacker vibe with great facilities and lots of opportunities to meet people. WiFi was a bit intermittent and could have been a bit cleaner but generally pretty good.

    Very nice hostel in front of the beach. You can meet really nice people who to speak with. You get also a discount on surfing lessons if you are staying there. Suggested to everyone

    Delicious vegan food, but awful service. The waitress working there is not attentive whatsoever—as I was waiting to be served she looked over at me and instead of coming over, she sat down with her friend and they were chatting. The food also takes forever to come out. The hostel is in a great location, close to the beach, restaurants and markets. Not very clean though, there were constantly large puddles in front of the bathroom and in the open area (even though it didn’t rain).

    Would love to score this place higher but the cleanliness let's it down a little sadly. Plenty of volunteers floating around but not enough cleaners. The shared bathrooms are often pretty messed up, without toilet paper and/or hand soap and with bins overflowing. The location is fab though and there's a nice vibe for meeting people, especially with the rooftop hangout area.

    Moksha has a great atmosphere, many volunteers working and staying here while they enjoy surfing in Huanchaco. The hostel is located across from a soccer pitch and a beachfront bar so there is a lot of noise and light at all hours, especially if you are in the sea view room. The staff is very friendly. The biggest issue is cleanliness. None of the areas appear to be well-cleaned on a regular basis, and leaky pipes leave huge puddles everywhere that are slippery.
