  • Description


    A little over a year 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.
    Using prefabricated panels, our Eco modular hostel and 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.

    For our guests we count on double, twin and quad ensuite rooms, as well as dorms with shared bathrooms. All of them have personal lockers, AC, and high-quality mattresses.
    For our volunteers, we normally have space in one of our dorms. If not available because the hostel is fully booked, we have enough beds on a small backyard where our employees sleep, and we can accommodate there up to two volunteers. Mattresses quality and beds is the same we offer to our guests.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our hostel is located very close to some interesting sites of the ancient coastal cultures of Peru, like Pachacamac Sanctuary, famous for its size and importance in history. Fishers´ villages like Pucusana or San Bartolo are very close too.
    For a day or weekend trip Paracas and Ica, together with the Islas Ballestas, is a must visit.
    Local transportation, either by public minibuses or private taxis/mototaxis is easy to get, and we´ll be happy to help you mediating if you don´t dominate the spanish language yet.
    Punta Rocas, the beach where our hostel is located, is perfect for medium-advanced surfers, and there are some restaurants on the beach where you´ll be able to try local food. Punta Hermosa, a bigger neighborhood located closed by, holds a wide range of restaurants at night, and a couple of beaches recommended to get initiated with surfing lessons. San Bartolo is also a suitable place to begin with your Surf lessons.
    We´ve many local contacts and expertise, and we´ll gladly help you with all your needs.
    Please note our hostel is located in a quiet area and beach, with more activity during the summer months, but still keeping a peaceful atmosphere all year round, and that is what we and our guests most enjoy. We are close enough to bigger villages, even Lima is not too far, nightlife, restaurants, etcetera.
    We look forward to welcoming you in our hostel, a dream come true for us, and hopefully also for you!
