    Loved this hostel! Definitely expensive, but it also felt more like a 5 star hotel than a hostel. Dorms are clean and the showers the best! Staff was friendly and know you by your name. Would recommend!

    Fun energy and the staff was very accommodating. My only suggestion would be a more strict monitoring of the luggage storage room. Guests were going in and out with the key. Although I doubt people will steal from each other there it’s better to prevent something from happening. So maybe they can tag the bags and let only staff go in and out of the storage room.

    Overall Banana’s adventure checked off most of the boxes for our one night stay. Location was good as it was away from the noise and towards the end. The restaurant on site had good deserts and mixed drinks. If you want a low key chill vibe after your adventure then this is the best spot for you. Only thing is the hot water went rather quickly for two people even when shutting off the water to lather and apply shampoo in hair. Bring your own toiletries as no shampoo is provided.

    Great place to stay overall. Food and location were excellent as was the dune buggy tour! Private room was very basic and there was no door separating the bathroom from the main room which was a little awkward. Also, as a heads up you can see right into the shower from the bedroom.
