Arriving into the La Libertad region of northern Peru late on a Saturday night, we needed to find accommodations for our short overnight in Trujillo. We found a friendly hostel called El Mochilero where we secured a simple and inexpensive room to rest for the night. (Booking Info: Hostelworld)
The hostel was decorated with colorful and lively paintings throughout the hallways mostly featuring parrots, toucans and native people. They were a welcoming sight after our first journey in Peru (and in South America for that matter).
