    Amazing value for money, the hostel had a great vibe and looked like the best place to stay in Huacachina. The breakfast pancakes were so good, as was the pool and the free activities. Loved this hostel!

    The best place to stay in Huacachina! We got the standard room with an en-suite and it was honestly the best shower I’ve had while overseas! Fantastic food and activities are included in the price so it’s definitely worth paying a bit extra!

    Fantastic hostel! The facilities themselves are clean and look very new, tons of lounge space outside, including by the pool. The included sandboarding and dune buggy ride, as well as the pisco tour were a ton of fun! The staff were generally friendly, and spoke English well. Great hostel!

    Great hostel and amazing food. The hostel is really well designed and has a pool where you can chill whilst you wait for your tour. My only complaint is that there is only plastic bottled water on sale and there’s so much plastic pollution in the desert. The hostel could perhaps get a filter system and ask people to pay towards its usage to look after the environment better ☺️

    The hostel is modern and clean with a nice pool area. The bar has reasonably priced food and drink, food is really good - loads of fresh fruit and veg. Breakfast is good as there is options other than eggs and bread if you fancy something different! The activity included in your stay each night is worth the money, we also paid for the BBQ on an extra night as it was tasty! Only problem was that in our 4 bed dorm the bathroom had a frosted glass sliding door with no lock so not the most private.

    Best spot in Huacachina! Great spot to chill out. Good quality food menu for decent prices! The beds are comfy, plus dune buggy/pisco tasting tour included. Walking distance to Wild Rover, so you can get a good night's sleep.

    Great little oasis in the desert. Although pricey, it involved an activity free. The food is also incredible! It’s a great place to chill out by the pool. Bar closes quite early but you can always go elsewhere after. The storage room for bags is often left open mistakenly which isn’t ideal but the reception is manned.

    Hostel had a great bar and restaurant. Also loved that the activity was included every day. Bar closes early so the vibe is very chill and it’s easy to sleep. If you’re looking for a party hostel, this is not it. Only issue is there are a million mosquitos and bugs. I really wish they had repellent to keep them away
