8/10 Very good

Nice new hostel, good pool
Nice hostel with a great pool. Looks like they are trying to get off the ground and get their name out there still, so it was fairly quiet. That is not a complaint though as it meant we had the pool to ourselves a lot of the time! Short walk (5-10mins) to the main hub of Huanchaco and to the beach and street food stalls. Would stay here again.

8/10 Very good

Quiet hostel next to the beach.
The facility was incredibly clean. The staff was very nice and helpful when asked for directions or transport options. Not like a normal hostel, quite quiet, comfortable accommodations. We stayed in the top room over looking the beach (not a dorm) - great sunset. 15 minute walk to central Huanchaco with restaurants along the way.

New hostel on the beach in Huanchaco
I visited during off-season so the hostel was very quiet. The room was clean, as were the bedsheets and toilet facilities. The pool's great too - would have been more fun had there been more people!
