  • Description


    We run a family hostel located in the small yet fun town of Mancora. It's been two years since we have opened so we're still growing. The hostel has a bar, swiming pool, games, tv, and a sushi restaurant. We are hard working people but we also like to enjoy everything we have here, from a sunset to a ping-pong game.
    This is a surf hostel and we located near one of the best surfing spots in Perú. We are just ten meters away from the beach.
    Inside the hostel you can also take clases of yoga, muay thai and jiu-jitsu. All of them have special prices for staff members.
    We try to do something different every day, like our BBQ on mondays, cleaning up the beach every friday and little partys once a week.
    We're always open to new ideas and new people. Our goal is to improve this place but keep it friendly, chill and warm.
    We're looking for people from all over the world, no matter your age or race, you're welcome to help.
