    Absolutely gem of a hostel. Located a stones throw from the beach (the best surf spot) and with shops and restaurants on the next block, Punta Huanchaco is in a prime spot. The facilities (and the hostel in general) were very modern with an outside shower and surfboard racks for those who want to get in the ocean. The owners, Gigi and Dario, are perhaps the kindest and most generous people I have met and by the end of your stay you feel like family (a family that includes many cats and Pepper)!

    AMAZING hostel! I was sick on arrival and Gigi and Dario let me sleep in their daughters room. Our hostelworld booking was wrong so they gave us a whole dorm to ourselves. Two people who are genuine and make you feel so at home when you're there. Kitchen fully equipped. Great location.

    From the moment Gigi opened the door for us at 6:00 a.m. we felt very welcomed. Hostal Punta Huanchaco is run by Gigi and her husband Darío, who truly enjoy and care about people. They both love to chat and are eager to help out with anything, from arranging taxi service to recommending restaurants, or a local surf shop. We originally booked only two nights here, but after being here for a couple of hours, we added three more nights. We only wish we could have stayed longer.

    One of my favourite hostels. The owners Gigi & Dario couldn't do more for their guests, you really feel at home. The hostel was spotlessly clean, quite modern and comfortable too. There are a few different lounge areas where you can chill out, and it's about a 5 min walk from the main strip with all the restaurants & bars. Only recommendation to make the hostel even better would be to have storage lockers for each bed for security. Highly recommend this hostel!

    The owners are the loveliest couple! Good chilled vibes. Dorm was lovely and clean, WiFi strong. Maybe add some curtains instead of blinds in the dorm room. Whole place was really homely. Free water and coffee. Well equipped kitchen. They have loads of cats. Close to small tiendas, lush bakery and short walk to restaurants and main area. They let us stay after we checked out until our night bus and went the extra effort to print our tickets.
