The dorm in the yard is the best. Do not expect to sleep longer than 7 am when school starts. Beds are nice and room big. The shower is warm not hot. But it is good enough for me
I do not know why you get an option to book 6 bed dorm. Saw only 8 bed dorm. The dorm at reception out to the main road are extremely noisy. Both from guest in the cafe just outside the door but also from the main road with honking taxis. Bring earplugs
Small shared kitchen
The atmosphere was friendly and open and i felt that the staff want and Happy to help. The location was close to the center of the city. Their is a great breakfest that you can buy in the hostel for 5 sol without eggs and 7 sol with eggs.
The lockers did not felt very safe but they gave me a lock with a ley so that was nice. I was needed to pay 5 sol just for puting my muchila in the hostel (not in a locker).
Great location. Easy walk from linea bus station and less than 10min walk to Cruz del Sur bus station. Minibuses to Chan Chan and Huachaco couple blocks away (2 sols each way). Local restaurants nearby serving Cenar for 5 soles. Close to the city attractions. Spacious dorm room with colonial architectural features and lockers. Clean bathrooms with toilet paper. Well equipped kitchenette available for use.
Didn't get the room I booked. Warm (not hot) water in the shower behind restaurant kitchen. Dorm door left a jar by staff at night which let in a cold draught and didn't block any of the noise from the restaurant, road or staff cleaning/talking at night..Tried to charge me for luggage storage despite being told earlier in the morning when I tried to pay that I didn't need to.
The outside area was really great to spend the evening relaxing and chatting with friends in a young and colored atmosphere. The location was good, 10 min walking to Plaza de Armas.
Everything was fine
With a stay at El Mochilero in Trujillo, you'll be within a 10-minute walk of Trujillo Plaza de Armas and Monasterio del Carmen. Featured amenities include a computer station, a 24-hour front desk, and luggage storage.
