    Absolutely perfect hostel, clean, good food, great staff, great location and included activities. Huacachina is becoming very littered with rubbish I tried to encourage the hostel to add a sign ‘ one adventure, one bag ‘ for anyone climbing the dunes ... bring one bag of rubbish back with you! 😬

    Amazing place to stay great staff and vibes not to mention the fine buggy tour we got free was amazing! The snack commissary was also nice for getting fairly priced water and snacks for the next leg of our trip. The location can't be beat for accessing the sand dunes either.

    Great place to stay if you’re looking for a quieter place to stay in Huacachina. It is expensive, but you do get a free activity each night you stay as well as free breakfast. The sandboarding and dune buggies were good fun! The hostel was a good place to meet people, but it’s not a party hostel - stay here for a good night’s sleep or if you do want to party you can easily walk to Wild Rover!

    We had a really good stay, the Hostel is super nice , clean,and the common areas are super enjoyable. The only thing we have to say is the receptionist that checked us in was not super helpful, and not friendly at all.

    Overall such a great hostel! Activities included in the price and the BBQ is sooooo good!! The price of the restaurant is fair and the free breakfast is amazing! You have a choice of eggs and bread, pancakes and fruit or granola, yogurt and fruit. Only negative is the guy on reception isn't very friendly, weird because all of the other staff were sooooo lovely!

    Great location, right in front of the oasis. Price of accommodation includes free activity. Really nice facilities however our room's toilet and shower was a strange set up which didn't allow much privacy. Other than that, food options are great and had many areas to chill/socialise. Bar shuts at 11pm so you can also get a decent sleep!

    Amazing hostel, the price seems expensive but when you take into account the free activity each day it is totally worth the price! The rooms were super clean and modern and the bar area and food was great! Unfortunately the sun doesn't hit most of the hang out area so we didn't hang by the pool as it looked too cold. However, the roof top terrace is warm but could do with a few more chairs! Overall great place, would definitely recommend!

    It was a nice place, chill laid back vibe. Food was good. Room was nice and comfy bed. Bathroom and shower were nice. Would be nice if they had larger lockers in the room but not huge deal. The keys for room are so big which is kind of annoying to carry around. The activities that are included are good which adds value.

    Great place to rest and relax because of the communal areas which are large and have lots of varying seating. I was in a 4 bed bunk room and there was plenty of room.
