    I had an amazing time at My Friend Hostel! the atmosphere is calm cool and relaxed! The walk to the beach is super short and Randy is the Man! His whole family is very welcoming and he makes great food. The third floor has a great rooftop hang out area and he was very knowledgeable about the area and had great tips on where to go/how to get there, PLUS a great surf instructor. Had me standing up on the first wave!

    The room I stayed in was very comfortable, the sheets were really soft and the water in the shower was hot. Randall, the guy who runs it, is SUCH a nice person, he is warm, calm and just incredibly helpful. Best option in Huanchaco, and there are lots of cute cafes within a 3 second walk.

    Randy is a freaking awesome dude. Super thoughtful, respectful and chilled! Takes the effort and patience to help you with all your questions and on top of that, he is also a great surfing instructor! The place is cute with everything you need. A roof terrace, decent WiFi, proper matras, hot showers and a kitchen with a fridge. But the kitchen I never used, because downstairs they also have a restaurant where you get the most delicious breakfast and lunch! I can highly recommend staying here.

    The only thing I regret is only staying a couple of days here. It's a great hostel with absolutely amazing staff. They help you out however they can, if you have any issues, problems or questions. The breakfast is great, since you have different options to choose from and even if it isn't included in your booking, it doesn't cost much. Randy offers surfing lessons for 70 soles including wetsuit and board. He is also a great teacher that will help you feel comfortable if it's your first time.

    Highly recommend this hostel for any surfers going to Huanchaco. It’s a very short walk to an amazing wave and Randall has lots of different boards and wetsuits to rent as well as the coolest surf shop I’ve ever seen. The staff here and at the restaurant are super friendly and helpful. It’s very affordable and they all care to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

    Very chill hostel with not a lot of people connected to a nice restaurant, very close to the beach with surf gear you can rent here yourself. No reception, no strict rules, just a very nice chill time. Also the shower water can get very hot which is amazing because other places in Peru didn't shower water nearly as hot. If in Trujillo/ Huanchaco, I highly recommend this spot.

    Excellent hotel for surfers (right near beach! rented surf equipment!) Some non-surfers were happy there (I guess the breakfasts were good?) But mostly it's great for surfers!
