Offers great dune buggy tours, most of the staff speak good English and nice area to relax in. The loud music goes off at night but we would have liked it turned down during the day to make talking easier at the bar. Further away from the bar it was fine. Take a clear plastic bag for your electronics to the dunes. The sand caused problems many peoples devices.

The hostel offers their own packages - wine tour, dune buggies, etc. and great food. Good price and a small pool. Saw no reason to not recommend this place. Only thing is their storage could be a lot better.

Great hostel! Very overpriced though of you book it online and pay for the package. It's at least S10/nt cheaper if you pay when you're there. Definately recommend just paying for room too. The only activity worth paying for is buggy ride with sandboarding. The BBQ is overpriced and the wine tour is the worst tour I've ever done. Bring everything with you to Huacachina as it's very overpriced once there. The pool is nice and its a good place to chill. 2 days max there is enough

Itr was great, the hostal, the sandsurfing and the BBQ. The wine visit was great in Tacama, but not the first visit: no explanation, only drinking.

Great little place with a lovely atmosphere. The food is a little expensive but it is very good. Staff are all helpful, rooms are clean and the extra expense of the room including the sand buggy tour is brilliant. Would definately recommend.

Bananas is a wonderful place, is maybe the best hostel in huacachina. Is a nice hostel next to the lake with many facilities as the tours it offers around Peru. The staff is nice and they have a good restaurant. I stayed with my partner in a private room and it was perfect.

Hostel was great; nice facilities and pool. Extra activities such as dune boarding and ballistas island tour however had h hidden fees in addition to the initial fees paid at the hostel, which was annoying.

be sure to stay two nights and avail of the other trips. we only stayed one and did the sand boarding but stay two and you can do a flight over the nazca lines. the guides on the sand bordering were really shit, didn't give any advise and were very inpatient. we still enjoyed it all the same

Overall it's a good experience, they ask to confirm arriving which i did via email but never receive a reply. Once we get there they then told me to do the activities ( boggy ride and sand boarding) we need to let them know 24 hours ahead however they are still able to accommodate us so it was ok. But our driver is kind of weird- we saw him sniffing the gas tank, like he was high. We did come back safe and sound but still it definitely freak you out when your driver is high on something,

Without a doubt, this is the best place to stay in Huacachina. We only stayed one night, but recommend staying longer. They picked us up for dune buggy ride at the hostel and after an activity like that with others at the same hostel, bonds are formed. Took a swim and enjoyed a nice barbecue dinner with drinks at the bar with new friends, followed by dancing at local club.

The double room was very modern and clean, definitely unexpected in a hostel. We had a great time dune buggying and sand boarding.

We spent 3 nights at Banana's so did all 3 tour options. BBQ was night 1 but it never happened - not enough people, although we were never told. It was on the following night though and it was worth the wait - amazing food! The sand buggy tour was just awesome - if you only have time for one tour option make sure it's this one. The winery tour was quite rushed, but interesting. No water (hot or cold) in the male shower for our entire stay. Cool place though, best bet for Huacachina I'd say

Good atmosphere and friendly staff. Rooms are nice enough and the added sand dunning / sand boarding is great fun.

The price is far too high for what you get. As I found out the included Tour is just 30 Soles. I thought maybe the tour would explain the high price for the accomodation. You just sleep in simple wooden bungalows. Those are ok but not worth to pay 60 Soles for! There are too less bathrooms too. The pool is very small. I would recommend to stay at cheaper hostels. Desert nights looked good from the outside. Banana´s is alright but not worht paying the price!!!
