    I could not speak more highly of this hostel. It was the coolest hostel I’ve been to yet. Very clean, safe and fun! I was truly blown away and Sandro the manager could not have been more helpful. He was very efficient and informative when I arrived in terms of information on the hostel, services, excursions, etc. I will 2000% be coming back here because of my experience!

    Nice and quiet hostel between Ica and Huacachina. If you don't like the noise of the party hostels in Huacachina, this is the place for you. 15 min walk to Huaca or a 3 minute drive with a tuktuk (3-4 soles)

    Over a decent hostel. It’s about a 10 min walk to Huacachina or you can take a Tuk Tuk (like 3 soles). Breakfast is included and is pretty good (eggs, bread, jam, butter, coffee, tea). The on site restaurant has good food also. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The reason I can’t give it a perfect 10 is because improvements can be made for amenities. For example, in a 6 person dorm only one power outlet! The room is also very very hot, but they do give you a fan for the room.

    Cute hostel but be aware it’s about 10 min walk from Huacachina. Not a very social atmosphere but good for relaxing and a good night of sleep. Also breakfast was good and nice staff.

    Lovely staff, they only speak Spanish but I did too so that was ok. Helped me with getting a cab to Ica. Food is good, waiting time a bit long but ok. Location is so-so; you are not staying in the lagoon so have to walk a bit sketchy road downtown at night or take a cab. Pool was awesome! Room too. Only thing i felt was weird was there was no luggage room while everyone can walk in and out the hostel. Luckily nothing got stolen. Also book the tours via Bananas, is cheaper and good quality.

    This hostel is not in Huacachina. It is outside Huacachina on the edge of Ica. Do not book this hostel if you want to stay in Huacachina, as you will have to walk around 15 minutes on a road to get there. The staff were nice and the beds comfortable, however the showers were a bit of a joke - a cold dribble of water basically. Also despite the low-key vibe the music was ridiculously loud at night, probably the loudest out of any hostel I’ve ever stayed in, and the bedrooms not at all soundproof.
