Reviewed 29 July 2013

My five friends and I had an amazing stay here. We had arrived around 4am because of an overnight bus and Clara was nice enough to have the room already ready for us, so that we could rest. The meals were good, and she offered very good inexpensive tours. Good location!

Very good tours, meals & information. You can meet guides from all over Peru. Although our tourists usually stay in 4 star hotels, this is more peaceful, on a quiet park. 3 huge water tanks ensure permanent hot water. I have had occasion to bring my own passengers here, when the town water supply failed around October/November during annual maintenance work.

Room Tip: There is something for everybody. I have brought groups who preferred a boys dormitory & girls d...

I planned on staying here for a night ended up to stay 3 or even 4 I lost track of time. It was absolutly amazing, the rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, terrasse is huge and beautiful and Clara, the owner is suuuuper nice and helpful. She will take you on a tour to Chan Chan or where ever else you might want to go, she is so passionate about these places that its a pleasure to do the tour with her, she will take as much time as you will show interest.
Beautiful place, close to the center, absolutly loved it!!

We Stayed two nights at casa de Clara and had a wonderful time. the room was clean and the staff ( well more like Family) was great. if you are looking for a quiet stay without the party atmosphere this is the place. Also Clara is a very energetic tour guide with passion for her local history. well worth taking a tour with her. While we were there my girlfriend was sick with a fever it was nice to have Clara there, She took care of us just like home.

This is basically the house of Clara who is a slightly eccentric lady but really lovely. The rooms are gorgeous but most are not ensuite. but they are really nicely decorated and shared bathrooms are clean.

She hosts lots of school groups and can cook for you all meals that you require

you can use the kitchen but have to pay for the gas if you would rather cook for yourself

there is good wifi and its a huge house so lots of places to sit around the house and relax including the ground floor lounge and terrace
also the house is in front of a little park.

Real nice hostel that will having you staying for more days than planned

also Clara is a first rate travel guide and can arrange personalised trips to nearby ruins

This place was recommended by our guide book so we were expecting some good service and prices. The first price that was quoted was 60 soles for a private room ! Too expensive plus the place was almost empty. After bargaining for 10sec we got it for 40 soles ! The owner was pretty cold and when we asked her question she didn't answer but instead tried to sell us her own tours !
Bedroom was correct and clean but don't take one on the 4th floor cause it gets very hot !!

We stayed 6 days at Clara's and it was a fabulous experience. The hostel is in a nice little park an easy walk from town. The place is relaxed and friendly with great opportunities for seeing the local archaeology. Clara knows every site in the area and most of the people who dig there or run the sites and museums. She took us on 3 fabulous days out to Chiclayo, ChanChan, the Huacas and some fascinating museums. She has dug on most of them herself and has real knowledge of the archaeology.
She also took us on family trips to the beach, restaurants and a civic event in the town - she runs an absolutely unique hostel with style and eccentricity. The technical details of the rooms and the facilities may be a bit chancey but to stay at Clara's is a terrific experience you will never forget
