The Banana's Adventure hostel is a really nice place to spend a couple of days in Huacachina! The atmosphere in this hostel is relax with a lot of hammocks and sofas, a bar in the middle and the pool where you can refresh yourself. It's such a lovely place to chill out. Moreover the hostel food is good and tasty. The dorms are pretty good as well. We had a really good time in this place, thanks!


Nice place to chill around the pool, relax atmosphere. Really good buggy trips to the dunes and sandboarding included in the night's price. Rooms are basic. Ear plugs needed absolutely. Overall, a good place to stay in Huacachina, I recommend it.


Aethetically pleasing hostel with nice bar and pool area, however, rude staff (especiallly the owner) and over priced for what it is.

Loved this hostel. Great relaxing vibe and the sandboarding/dune buggy activity is amazing and well worth paying the extra money to do. Food a bit overpriced and not amazing, we headed over to the bamboo restaurant over the road for cheap and yum daily specials. Although the Nutella cheesecake at Bananas was delish!


Really fun. Loved the pool and the food is good but expensive.


Great fun hostel. Busy and social but also not rowdy somehow. Pool was a god send.


Wow what a cool oasis hostel. It has a great vibe associated with it. The meals are tasty, filling and not too expensive. The staff were nice and cheerful. I would recommend this hostel if you're wanting to chill in Huacachina. Similarly, it's close to bars, restaurants and clubs if you want to go out for a fun night out! A wonderful experience.


Awasom hostel! Great atmosphere!


Great hostel - the best in town. A really god atmosphere and a lots of backpackers. The prices is though really expensive compared that it is a hotel.


The Staff is super friendly and they are willing to help you aways. The sand boarding activity is amazing. Definitely a must. the atmosphere is unique, the bar next to the pool is super cozy and helps you to relax completely.


Nice staff, nice breakfast, hot showers, great swimming pool !


Great hostel, really fun atmosphere! the pool was amazing, a bit pricey but it included the sandboarding trip which was amazing! Breakfast was good, typical of peru, bread roll, jam and eggs.


Great pool! Decent bar food too. Sure it's pricey but the pool was worth it compared to the other hostels nearby.


Really cool hostel. pool and common area are great for chilling out. the dorm was clean and comfortable. the food in the bar was good as well... only issue was that the drinks in the bar were expensive. one of the bathrooms is fantastic and one is really poor. wifi was also decent.


They organize lots of activities


Ideal place to stay in Huacachina... They set up really fun sand dune tours at a good price, have a good restaurant, lots of outdoor space to hang or with chairs and hammocks. Nice clean showers and bathrooms. Comfortable beds and clean sheets. cons: No shared kitchen. There's no ATM in Huacachina and despite their email saying we could pay by card, their card machine doesn't work. They accept dollars, but only give you a 2.8 rate when the current rate was 3.09.


Great food and amazing location. Beautiful hostel with amazing showers. The owner is so lovely as well! We booked the room and activity deal which worked out really reasonable.


We had a deluxe double room ensuite bathroom and it was the best room we has in Peru. It is worth spending the extra for this nice room or even a double with shared bathroom. The staff was awsome and the kitchen lis excellent. The Pool and deckchairs are clean. Highly recommend the Pisco Sour, Guacamole and of course the fabtastic sanddune tour!!! We loved this hostel!!
