Loved staying at Banana's. The only downside was that they don't have very good luggage storage if you arrive before check-in. They just had us sit our bags in the courtyard and there was no one assigned to watching them. The dunebuggying/sand-boarding tour included was FANTASTIC. Also, we had the BBQ one night and it was excellent -- some of the best food I had in Peru.

Awesome poolside hangout! Really good desserts at the bar, and pretty cool tour included in your room fee. Could have had more activities to make the place a big more happening and it was quite expensive (but worth it in my opinion.)

This Hostel is amazing. The staff are nice. The restaurant is good and cheap if you compare with the restaurants of the place. The only bad thing is the party ends until 6am at the street, and you can't sleep very well. But if you are a party person, who likes fun and meet young people. This is the place.

Awesome hostel! Super fun, dune buggy/ boarding was awesome and BBQ was great value. Rolly the bartender was great and played awesome tunes and the other lady who served breakfast was so sweet. Rooms super cute and comfortable. Worth a 10 hour round trip to visit!!!

Our stay at bananas came with no issues whatsoever. Food was tasty, bbq they offered was delicious, the included wine tour and dune buggy/sand boarding were two of the most enjoyable activities we have done whilst travelling. The pool was a welcome bonus, the hostel was clean, had a tropical feeling to it and was a perfect location right next to the oasis. The staff were more than helpful and the lady working behind the bar was one of the nicest people we have met. This is a must stay hostel!

I was very impressed with Banana's Adventure - such a cute place to spend your time in Huacachina. The vibe is actually very relaxed and friendly. I thought this place was a party hostel but the bar shuts down at 10:30 so you can get some sleep. Beds were comfortable, staff was really friendly and helpful. The activities were great fun. Only issue was our shower was either freezing or really hot, otherwise an awesome place to stay! The food is great too - get the Doritos and guac!

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!

All things considered I would stay there again if going to Huacachina. The dune buggy/sanboarding being included is a nice deal. The lounge area is very conducive to meeting people, so it's great for solo travelers. The only downside was that I had trouble sleeping both nights because my room was full of mosquitoes yet too hot to sleep with the sheets completely covering me. I ended up trying to sleep outside on one of the hammocks. If they can do something about that it would be perfect.

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!

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