It has been over a year since I had the unfortunate time of staying at Muchik Hostel (although that is not the name they are registered with in the city--a suspicious thing upon entering). I meant to post a review sooner but time got away from me and I could not do so before leaving Peru as the owner of...

Pros: - Really clean - Friendly staff - Nice interior Cons: - The room was MUCH warmer than the temperature outside. We roasted all night as the fan just swirled stuffy air without cooling it any. In the morning the room was 85F degrees! We were in room #302 which was an interior room and the heat definitely rose, floor...

Firstly the good: the hostel is in a good location, the hostel and rooms are kept very clean, the staff are very friendly and welcoming. Now for the let down! The reservation was made with Bookingdotcom and the rate was for 20U$D - about 60 Pesos. I stayed an extra night, which was booked directly with the hotel at a...

Me and a friend, we stayed at Muchik Hostel for a few nights. It felt more like a hotel than a hostel, since there is no kitchen or common room (except for the lobby). We had a double room, and paid 60 soles for the 2 of us per night. The hostel was very clean, our room was cleaned and...

This hostel is very familiar and boutique concept in one of the most crowded and noised cities in Peru. They are very secured and confident. The best thing are prices, very affordable for the rooms and place, most hotels and motels in Chiclayo city are much more than Muchik. The staff is very friendly and helpful to show routes and...

The private room for two was a bit pricey at 30 soles per person, but the accommodations are worth it. Comfy beds, clean rooms, wifi, luggage storage, central location and a late check out time. The staff is friendly and one attendant speaks English. They also seemed to have improved security since the laptop review, but I'd be extra careful...

We spend a couple of days in the dorm of Muchik hostel (25S per Person/night). The staff of the hostel is very friendly and helpful and the hostel is modern and clean. It is more a hotel than a hostel (no kitchen, no common area, no backpackers) but it has wifi and a dorm. And the room was cleaned every...

We were very happy to find a place like this in dusty and chaotic Chiclayo. It was the only place in Peru where we did not need to sleep with ear plugs! It felt more like a hotel than a hostel though. The room was super clean, the bed was large and we had tv and private bathroom too, for...

It's hard to find actual dorms out here, the dorm rooms are clean with new tile work in the bathroom. The room does get hot in the summer (late December-March) and the bathroom door didn't always close right. The owner speaks some English and is very happy to practice, tell you stories, and help you out. The guy really went...
