RE: dont stay at casa suiza in huanchaco

Getting confuse? just a question.. if Lima is crap, why do  peruvians and latin american champions come from that area? also, the last world master champion is from Lima.
How can a taxi driver know the best spots for surfing, are they surfers?..........In wanna surf you`ll find the info, then how can you get there?

Thanks for the info Jake. I was planning of staying there but now that you mentioned the stealing I guess I'll look for some other options.

RE: dont stay at casa suiza in huanchaco

just saw by accident the posting about la casa suiza. it`s interesting to read that nothing has changed over the years. I have been there in 2003. One day, all of us three had one false 50 sol bill in our money belts in our room. someone removed one real one and added one false one - so in the first moment everything seems to be ok as the number of 50 sol bills was still the same. It was evident: it was someone from the hostel staff. And then? Endless discussions, police, endless discussions again... so we decided to stay as many days until our open bill was 150 sol. then we got our backpacks, jumped out of the hostel, took a taxi and were never seen again. ;-) so it was 1:1 at the end.

The Casa Suiza changed ownership in July 2007. Here is their site: casasuiza.com. The place is super clean, inexpensive and generally a good place to stay.

The hostal is now under new management who are amazing friendly and the place is one of the best hostals I stayed in north Peru in terms of value for money! We paid 15soles per night (we were paying 35 in Cusco for something very similar). The rooms were very clean and internet really fast which was usefull as I was trying to upload pictures throughout Peru and this was the first place I could do it!

I think it may have used to be rubbish but the new guys have really turned it around so I think this thread name now seems harsh!!
