We stayed here for 1 night and really enjoyed it. The only space available was the 4 bed dorm in the more superior building and it was amazing! Clean, great shower. The food in bananas is really good and thy do a BBQ every night for really good value. The staff are really helpful and friendly and there was a great atmosphere.
My roommate told me she saw that the cleaning lady didn't replace bedding, she just folded the used one again. That's pretty gross. The tours which are included in the price are wonderful and the staff is very helpful. There's only few lockers, I couldn't put my luggage there for my whole stay. Only 3 wall sockets for a 4 people bungalow which rarely work with European plugs. Food is very expensive, but not very good.
The price per night includes one activity. Don't know if this is a good deal or not. Only one working shower but otherwise a really nice place!
The only negative thing I have to say is that it was quite noisy at night as in the bar was right outside my dorm.
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.
