This feels like a proper backpackers hostal. Is good for one night, good restaurant for comfort food e.g burgers and buffalo wings. You also get 10% off the restaurant if you stay at the hostal. Location is right on the lagoon as is most places. Bathrooms are ok, showers looked ominous. Dorms were really hot at night and they just spray cleaner to make them smell clean. Small lockers. Wifi is good. Were made to wait until 2pm to checkin although its 1pm and we had arrived at 9am.

Decent hostel, amazing food. I think this had some harsh reviews. The location is good, the food is great although guests get a discount which we were never given until the last day! They have a telly that picks up lots of channels, comfy seats, decent beds. Ok for a night or two. They offer sandboarding tours but charge 10 soles more than the guys with the dune buggys do if you book it directly with them. Showers were ok, would have been nice if more powerful.

Absolutely perfect for one or two nights. Great food in the restaurant which is at the front of the hostel so good vibes. Right on the lagoon so ideal location (although Huacachina is tiny anyway). Hot showers. Friendly helpful staff.

Brilliant hostel, really clean and perfect location-right on the oasis! The food at the hostel is the best I've had at a hostel, in Peru yet, and the staff are friendly. Defiantly recommend it!

Great, cheap place to stay for a night or two. The staff member on night shift was very accommodating since we turned up at 6:30am. No lockers, so was wary of belongings. Showers were mostly cold

Great location, good lay out of the hostel and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The cold showers are quite refreshing as it is so hot during the day. The wifi is also good. The only downside as there is no air con so it is very hot at night and there is also no kitchen facilities. It is quite expensive to eat out in huacachina so it would have been good to have a kitchen.

Great location. No breakfast included but good restaurant on site, average prices for Huacachina. Didn't find noise to be an issue when sleeping. Lockers provided in rooms, otherwise dorm doors often left open which could be easily accessed by outsiders. Staff helpful but sometimes hard to find. Not really a hostel to meet other people. Great price compared with others in the area. Overall would recommend!

Our room smelt like dirty feet and didn't have air conditioning. Only a fan which didn't do a good job. The bottom of the showers were full of waste coming from the kitchen because of a plumbing problem. One night was enough
