“Unhelpful staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2013

We stayed in this hotel as we did not have many other options. The rooms are nice but there was no negotiating on the price despite the fact that it was off peak season when we were there. We were given 2 triple rooms and 1 double for 7 of us. I had a double room to myself and we were charged for the double room even though a single would have been fine. The bedroom was very spacious and looked out onto the city, there was a lovely bay window in the room. The bathroom was good with a nice shower. Breakfast is not included and we expected to have something for the price we paid. We stayed out quite late and were a little unorganised the morning after, we were twenty minutes late checking out and were informed that if we didn't leave immediately, we would be charged for another night. There wasn't exactly people queuing up to check in and other places are usually quite lenient with the check out time. Staff were not very friendly.

Chiclayo is a hot, congested, and noisy city with a reputation for petty crime (the food, friendly people and nearby sights are excellent though). When I visited there I wanted a secure base so I paid a little more than I had elsewhere in North Peru, and it was worth it.

Latinos Hostal is a block from the main plaza, two or three minutes walk. The room I stayed in was large, very clean and comfortable, and surprisingly quiet given the location. I´m not always the biggest fan of aircon, but it was a godsend in this case. The staff were very professional and courteous. Importantly in this city, security seemed very good - the hotel is upstairs, there is always someone at reception, and at night they had a security guard at the door.

The hotel is close to a number of nice places to eat (e.g. Hebron and Cafe Americano near the plaza) and there is also a supermarket not too far away. They have one computer behind the front desk which was free for guests to use and was probably the best computer I used in North Peru - fast internet connection, good monitor, and appeared free of spyware and warning messages about fake copies of windows. Great for copying and viewing photos.

Potential downsides: Probably not the greatest place to meet people if you are a solo traveller. View of the city from my room was a bit gritty as you can see what all the buildings really look like behind the frontages, I like that but not to everyone´s taste. There are cheaper options in the city, I haven´t tried them though.

A word of advice: wherever you choose to stay in Chiclayo, book ahead, especially if you have an early morning arrival. The streets are not safe at that hour and it is common for the local taxi drivers to lie about places being full or closed, to try to persuade you to stay somewhere they will get a commission (which will not be nice or necessarily secure).

Room Tip: The further up, the quieter (but there´s no lift that I´m aware of).

Stayed here twice - how many times do you hear THAT from backpackers in northern Peru?! The staff here were friendly and helpful, spoke English, and gave us a room for 3 (double and single) for 2 people, even after negotiating their rate down to 75 soles/ 25USD! Our first room there had jacuzzi (a bit noisy, but hey, it's a jacuzzi! Don't get that often whilst travelling at this price!). Both times, the room was large and very clean, with good bathrooms, water hot. They don't do breakfast but the location was great (very central but the right side of town for the bus companies) and Hebron down the road did a fantastic breakfast so not far to go. Would definitely recommend.
