Property Description

Hello traveler…!!! We are glad you are checking us that means that we are doing a good job…!!!

I think the best way to tell you who we are is pointing what we like and what we want to offer you, first of all we want you to feel at home, we will try to take care of you and help you in all the ways we possible are able to, then we will love you to get lots of sleep, that is why we are in a really peaceful area (10 minutes walking to the oasis) and as sleeping complement we do not have any limitation on serving you breakfast at any time, that means if you wake up at 9 or 10 a.m. we still serve you breakfast, by the way our breakfast is the best one in all Ica…!!!

Beside that we will invite you shots of our national drink Pisco, so you can taste part of our culture.

Other important point is the cleaning, we are really clean not only the rooms and the bathrooms but also the common areas and the pool.

As you see we really care about you guys, we want you to have the best experience of your life, that is why I can tell you that we are not a regular Hostel, I really think that traveling is all about experiences, meeting new people and share good moments, so if you want all this we are the best option for you (read all the reviews).

    Fantastic stay at the Upcycled Hostel. The grounds are fantastic, fun and colourful... while we didn’t swim, the pool was a fantastic touch. The food was delicious and they also served drinks. They even had a night where they taught us how to make traditional Peruvian cocktails with Pisco (for FREE!!!). Location is also great, while you are not right in Huacachina, the hostel is only a 10 minute walk from the oasis and they offer shuttles for excursions. They even called taxi for us at 2am!

    Brilliant stay. Great staff. Relaxed option to other hostels in the area. One minute tuk tuk, 7 minutes walk in to Huacachina Oasis. Quiet and chilled atmosphere, we were lucky to be there on a quiet week and my boyfriend and I had a room to ourselves. Really tasty food for both breakfast and dinner. Definitely recommend.

    Great hostel that is very clean and has plenty of common areas to chill and meet other travellers. The bed was comfortable but the sheets rarely fit properly and kept on coming off. The hot water was on and off depending on which shower you were using. Overall had no real complaints that made my stay unbearable. Great location that is a 5-10 min walk to the main square. I would stay there again if I'm ever in Arequipa.

    Honestly lovely. Great food, lovely hostel. A little bit quiet and a 15 min walk from Huacacina & Ica but otherwise great. Best food in Huacacina by a fair margin...

    Beautiful place with a relaxed vibe around the pool. One of the best breakfasts we've had in South America. A little outside Huacachina. Only a 4min tuk-tuk drive but just a bit inconvenient. The upside is the peace and quiet in the hostel. Only stayed one night but would have liked to stay longer.

    Very Good

    The hostel is a short taxi ride from the town No kitchen but food for sale at the hostel bar. Nice upcycled style as the name suggests. Rooms are clean, spacious and very warm. The bathrooms are located in a shed outside the rooms- hot water didn’t work for us when more than one shower was being used. Staff were not very friendly- the girl who checked us in was pleasant but the lady who checked us out didn’t speak to us except to say how much the room cost without a smile or even a thank you

    Very Good

    Trendy hostel just outside of Huacachina - loved the look of it. Was around a 15 minute walk into Huacachina centre so be prepared for that. We had a night bus on the day we checked out and the hostel allowed us to store our luggage and to continue using the facilities up until we left which was really helpful! Not much of a vibe, we stayed on a Saturday night and despite music playing into the night, there wasn’t much of an atmosphere which was a shame.

    The dorm room was very open, not much privacy from the main part of the hostel at all. It was also very hot. The place was very quiet at night though which was nice. The eftpos machine wasn’t working so we had to pay in cash, but they had no change for us which was very frustrating. We only needed 10 and 15 soles change each and they didn’t even have that. Location was further out than I thought, if you’d like to walk to the oasis I’d suggest staying somewhere else.

    Really wasn’t the hostel for me. I was aware it was a bit of a walk from Huacachina but the strip it was on was in the middle of no where and the roads weren’t safe to walk. Staff were reasonably friendly. Did have a pool, however no chairs / loungers so people were laying on the grass. Bar looked completely empty, not stocked. Main reason I moved was as a solo traveller there was no one there and it felt really anti social. Moved to Banana Adventure - much better atmosphere!
