  • Description


    About three years ago, 3 close friends had the idea to become partners and launch a small beach hostel, and we are still living our dream every single day, brainstorming, improving, and sharing our knowledge from different backgrounds to make a hostel of reference for surfers and travelers in Peru.

    Our hostel stands for RELAX.SURF and FUN. Our mission is to create a place, where we bring SURF VIBES alive. A place with comfortable beds, good soul food to start into a relaxed holiday at the beach.

    CONCEPT- eco sustainable way of living
    Using prefabricated panels we created our Eco modular hostel. A hostel, where we recycle and wish to build up a sustainable way of life.

    LOCATION- best place to surf
    Our surf camp is located right by Punta Rocas Beach just a few meters away from the sea. This area holds one of the most famous surfing spots in Peru and the world, having the most consistent wave known to date.
    Currently we have 3 employed staff who help us with the daily duties at the hostel.
