    Thanks to the two coolest guys in Huanchaco, Randy and Carlos for the great stay and good advice on how and what to do around Huanchaco. These guys provide a good vibe and the overall feeling in the hostel is relaxed and welcoming. See you next year guys.

    Randy (the owner) and the folks at My Friend were great. Check-in was a breeze, and Randy really goes out of his way for you! The place has a great laid-back vibe, with BBQ nights! Food at the restaurant was great, and even locals were regulars. They have a wicked deal on pasta dishes, kind of a choose-your-own adventure. Booked a surf lesson with the My Friend surf school. Randy himself was my one-on-one teacher, and got great gopro clips I'll be splicing together at home. Highly recommended!

    This hostel is in an ideal location, the room was basic but good, you don’t need much at the beach. There is a nice terrace area and the restaurant downstairs looks good, but we didn’t try it. The WiFi is bad, but this is probably the same for most of Huanchaco. There didn’t not seem to be many hostel staff and other than the restaurant there was no reception area which makes checking in/out and asking questions difficult. We had to wait for our room because the owner was out taking surf lessons

    If you are looking for a cheap bed in Huanchaco, this worked for me. No reliable storage, hot water, or breakfast included and little involvement from staff. Rooms weren't super clean, yet a nice upstairs patio. You will have to go downstairs to the restaurant and ask for things like cutlery and toilet paper, and if you travel here during the summer season like I did, you will appreciate the cold shower. The location is just a moment away from the beach and many restaurants.

    We arrived and were told that our room wasn’t ready as there was building work on some damage that happened during El Niño to the hostel and so we could stay at another place which was the owner’s grandma’s house which was normally more expensive. We got there and it was as if no one had stayed there for a while. We were promised WiFi but didn’t have any and we had no one we could discuss our issues with - basically left by ourselves. We booked for 2 nights but left after 1.

    I called the hostel telling them that we would be arriving later than expected. They told me to just knock on the door. When we got there, we knocked & called the front desk over and over for about 25 minutes before someone let us in. This was at 2 am and we were exhausted. We were only there for about 7 hours but it was hard to find staff to help check out. The room was alright but the ceiling of the bathroom (which is connected to the room) is wide open so it got very cold with little blankets
