    Absolutely loved it here!! The staff are extremely helpful, accommodating and friendly:) The atmosphere is really nice, I met a group of great people and we went to Wild Rover to party (Banana’s got quiet around 11:30-12) so we got a good sleep when we came back. Also felt very safe which is always a huge plus!

    Our favourite hostel so far. Staff were fab, very accommodating and polite. Atmosphere was great too, lots of people around the bar and pool in the evening. Beds super comfortable, small lockers to keep your valuables in. Perfect location to the dunes in Huacachina. If your after a sociable but not mad crazy Hostel then this is the place to stay!

    Definitely worth the $100 CAD bill for the night. Our room had two beds (standard). The pool in the middle of the lounge area is really nice and it's right next to the bar which is really great. The pizza there is amazing and HUGE. Perfect for sharing with two people. We also had some celebratory drinks cause we don't drink often and man, were they ever good. Top shelf bartenders. Highly impressed with the place overall and would definitely recommend this place to anyone staying in Huacachina.

    Loved this hostel, it had such a nice vibe and the facilities were great for the en-suite dorm I stayed in. The only issue was that rooms were always unlocked so I didn’t feel that safe with all my belongings in the room (even though we had a small locker for valuables).

    This hostel is a great combination of chill and party. You can get drinks at the bar, meet people, and then go party and come back and sleep soundly in the quiet. The food is good but overpriced and it is annoying that they don't accept cards. Easy to book tours with the hostel and you can walk to everything in the tiny town.

    Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Huacachina unless I were 18 and Irish then it would be Wild Rover. Food is probably better than anywhere else in the town, it's not amazing but the outside offerings are terrible (especially Huacaf-ingchina). You can book various tours from here which makes the stay a lot easier. Wouldn't recommend doing more than one night in the town unless you want to party.

    Really enjoyed staying here, the rooms and showers were really nice and the facilities, decor and staff were very great. My only issue was I found the food prices slightly expensive. Also, the system where you have one desk to take payment was really frustrating as it can take 20 mins to order a drink/food. This needs to change. All in all would most definitely stay here again though, much better than the alternatives!

    Great hostel if you don't want to stay in the Wild Rover. Nice room with ensuite bathroom that gets cleaned every day. Good food in the restaurant, a little pricey. Nice roof top terrace with lounge chairs. Great location with access to the oasis. Music gets turned off at 10/11PM and everyone leaves to party on somewhere else, so you can get a decent night's sleep.
