    Banana adventures was the best hostel we stayed at in Peru! The rooms are fantastic, the restaurant is great and the common area is spacious and comfortable. Our only issue was we booked a private room with an ensuite, there is no shower door which causes water to splash EVERYWHERE when taking a shower, it soaked the floor. They have a sign in the bathroom saying keep the floor dry and clean but do not use the towels to dry it. How is it possible to do so when there is no shower door?

    Normally I don’t write reviews but Banana’s is so great. I stayed in a private room en-suite and it’s more like a hotel than a hostel. Bed was really comfy, the room was spotless and a good size. The food is great, tons to choose from, including veggie options. The hostel is safe and not a party hostel, the bar closes at 10:30pm because some people are up at 6am for sunrise or trips to the ballestas. Definitely recommend this place.

    Really enjoyed our stay here - totally worth the extra money! Breakfast was great and filling and the included tours were good value. BBQ in the evening was amazing so much food! Our basic room was small but was everything we needed. Very clean for such a sandy place and had a nice relaxed atmosphere in the evening around the bar area with music on but didnt go on all night. Pool and roof terrace both really nice for relaxing! Would definitely stay again!

    Great stay in Huacachina. Breakfast was amazing. Beds comfy and rooms clean with lovely ensuite bathrooms. Staff especially Jason behind the bar were super nice. Looks expensive at the outset but includes breakfast with 3 choices to choose from and an activity each day. The dunebuggy and sand boarding was so much fun and it's great to have it included in your price. BBQ also great. Would definitely recommend this hostel when visiting Huacachina

    Fabulous

    15 May 2019
    Very good price considering that the sandboarding / buggy tour is included (pretty much the only thing to do in Huacachina). It had a nice vibe, people chatting at night but nothing crazy like the Wild Rover. People that want to party go there and those that don’t, dont :-). I stayed in a basic dorm as it was the only one left and it was fine for a night. Shared bathroom outside which was also fine, with a nice hot shower with good pressure. Very mixed crowd of all ages, and they do decent food.

    07 May 2019
    I really enjoyed staying at Bananas for the facilities and atmosphere. It was a chilled vibe but lots of people hanging around the comfy common areas so easy to socialise. The BBQ was by far the best food we'd had in Huachina. The music ended about 11 which meant you could also get a good night's sleep. The room, however, was a shoebox. We stayed in a private room which was above the kitchen, meaning we also had the heat and smells coming up into our room.
