    Great hostel. It looks better than the photos, in my opinion. The staff is friendly and helpful. You'll need to have the WhatsApp or a celular to do laundry. The food is good and the prices are fair. The room that I had was very quiet, despite ongoing events in other parts of the area. The wifi, when it works, is good; it goes down often. I recommend this hostel.

    The hostel and all of it's amenities were great. The location and everything else was more than expected for the price paid. The only thing that bothered me was that the receptionists lied to me twice when I asked them if I could break a few large bills to chance. They told me that the hostel did not have that kind of money to make change, but when they opened the cash box for someone else, I could see enough change to feel a villiage.

    Decent hostel. Pool across the road is good. Restaurant is very good. WiFi is poor with poor coverage. Beware, the external laundry service they offer is a rip off!!!

    This is a nice hostel right next to the Oasis with a nice courtyard in the centre and a lovely rooftop terrace with a restaurant. The room was clean with small lockers to store valuables in, and stayed reasonably warm at night (could have done with a better pillow though)! The staff were helpful and the pool in the eco camp that we had access to was beautiful and clean! Not much atmosphere for meeting people etc, but relaxing.

    They shut the water off at night so I tried to shower all the sand off but I couldn’t. That’s probably just because they’re in an oasis. Also there was toilet water all on the floor of the bathroom. Overall it was a very nice stay, though the people generally keep to themselves. The kitchen on the rooftop terrace was super cool though!

    With a good location just set back from the oasis, and a stunning view of the dunes from the rooftop bar, Desert Nights was a pleasant experience. The staff were friendly, in particular at the bar/restaurant, which was probably the highlight of the hostel itself. However, the facilities available let it down. During our stay we had access to only cold showers. In addition, the safe storage lockers were too small to hold any backpacks or luggage. There was also no laundry service.

    Simple enough hostel, bedrooms were fairly spacious with comfy beds and small lockers for valuables. Zero hot water so we used the eco lodge across the road. Restaurants attached serves good food for Huacachina. Good value.

    Place is alright for the options in Huacachina. Nice location, however our room was so hot, with no aircon working in it and the female showers had poop on the ground.

    They overbooked the hostel so we had to stay somewhere else. Not what we wanted after a 13 hour bus ride
