Really good hostel with a really good atmosphere and a small pool. The food in Huacachina is bad, so it's nice that this hostel has a restaurant with decent food. Huacachina is a great place for just chilling out, especially when going from Cusco to Lima, or vice versa, but two nights in Huacachina is sufficient.
A good hostel to chill out for a few days. Rooms are nice but basic. The overall atmosphere is very relaxed. The hostel does not have a kitchen, however the food they offer is good and well priced. We positively recognized the amount of bathrooms available, which helps to avoid ques in the morning. The price seemed a bit high in the beginning, but as a tour was included it was good in the end. Finally we have to say that all of the staff is really nice, especially the bartender!
This place has real character. I had a four-bed dorm to myself. The bed was comfy and I got some much needed rest. The food was great but all you can eat BBQ and the associated all you can drink happy hour was purely a sales pitch. The staff were helpful and friendly. They have some recently completed new facilities which include two modern, clean bathrooms which highlight the poor old ones. Security could be an issue as anyone can wander in the complex. Lockers in the dorms could also be useful
We had such a good experience! Stayed here for 2 nights the rooms were VERY clean! They have just built all new washrooms and showers so although they are shared washrooms they are very nice, and very clean. The staff were so helpful with planning daily activities. We would highly recommend!!
The service is ok, just try to improve your wi-fi service.

Expensive hostel (dinner was 30 soles) and you are not allowed in the kichen so the costs add up quickly.
The place was a blast! It always had a really fun atmosphere. The wifi was nice and the beds were very comfortable. Not having a private bathroom would not have been such a big deal if the bathroom facilities would have been a bit better, but they certainly worked.

Nice location on the oasis, cute but basic bungalows, bathrooms shared amongst a lot of people but they are clean. Bar prices too high compared to local bars/pubs. Food quite tasty. Some staff helpful, others a bit rude - e.g. I ordered 1 portion of fries and the barman expected a tip!! (he didn't even cook them or serve them, just took the order!!) Booked a taxi with them but they didn't bother ordering it. Looks like they are building new accommodation which could be worth checking out.
Great hostel right by the oasis. The perfect place to chill out plus the tours they run are the same price as you get in town. Excellent breakfast. After sand boarding there's nothing better than chilling by their pool drinking the best mango and passion fruit smoothies. The showers do get sandy (because you're in a desert!) but they're clean again by the morning. Didn't bother us at all despite what the other reviews have said.
Bananas was a great place to stay! The atmosphere was conducive to meeting people or chilling depending what you want. The staff were helpful if not that friendly! I would recommend it to anyone going to Huacachina
Internet hardly works, but might be everyehere there the same
Party Hostel with barbecues every night. Great food there! Well locate around the lake and got great hammocks for resting. Room number one is the tiniest ever!!!! Could be bigger
Good bar area and decent food and breakfast. Staff were really heful and the dune buggy tours were great fun. Could have more showers, and staff did their best to keep the 2 clean, but given everyone is covered in sand, they get messy.
