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.
Stayed in a 4 bed dorm room which was very small, there was sand in one of the "clean" beds. The facilities were great though and the food really good value. The staff were very helpful. Close to a few bars in the oasis and they run there own sand boarding excursions.
Chilled atmosphere and a great place to relax. Offers tours to Nazca for decent prices.
Pleasant atmosphere for relaxing and having fun. Pretty nice place but not for pretentious tourists.
We had a fantastic time at this hostel. Poolside bar, hammocks, great dune buggy tour, great BBQ, and a really fun group of people. I would definitely recommend.
Great food and breakfast, although no budget options. They were out of water a few occasions during our stay which was quite weird. A pool is always nice!
It is a very nice hostel with a nice pool. There was some construction going on while we where there but it did not bother us at all.
Great atomsphere! Excellent place to relax and spend some time in a hammock reading a good book or by the pool. The staff are very nice. The bar was open until 11 so it was possible to get some sleep, if you wanted. They offer good prices for sand boarding however their boards could be in better shape. Use LOTS of wax or try to get the good one first! You might be able to rent better boards.
