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 just $25 a night. It might be a bit more expensive than hostels in Chiclayo but you do not get the tranquility you get at Muchik. The staff were also very helpful and the owner loves to get to know her guests. There's also a cute little breakfast/lunch place right next door and the women there also offered to cook us dinner for less than 10 soles. The only downside to this hotel is that the wi-fi signal is not that strong, but then again remember you're in Peru. I highly recommend this place.
