Rooms are not superclean but ok. Good beds and tv. Food is ok. Bad wifi, no hot water and the condition of the water in the swimmingpool is bad! The water is green, you don't see your feet while in the water. It's overpriced like every restaurant/hotel in Huacachina.

Hospedaje Mayo (or Mayo Ica) is an family run hostel in Huacachina. Despite booking through Hostelworld and paying a deposit they charged me the full price, saying the confirmation email is meaningless. So in other words prebooking is a waste of money but also may not guarantee a bed. Staff also sold trips to Paracas or City tours, around twice... More

Don’t ever go to Mayo! We booked a trip to sandboard including the buggy and the trip was nice with a friendly guide called Bladimir. But when we had to pay, we paid the owner of Mayo (we don’t know the name, but he is fat). We gave 100 soles, but then he changed it into 10 soles and said... More

When I arrived in Huacachina I was very hungry, and happened to walk by this small restaurant. This is a basic, simple restaurant, nothing fancy. It is near Desert Nights, which is overpriced but has a lot of american-style food. Well I ordered a ceviche here and the quality was good, although not amazing. I would definitely eat here again....

Not really recommend it. Think it is this kind of place for tourist. Quality wasnt good and overpriced for Peru. Plus did not like the waiters jokes

Ate here a couple of time because of their menu turistico! For 15 soles, excluding drinks, u get a starter and a really big main! U get to choose from two starters and six mains, and considering the usual price-ranges in Hucachina, this gets u alot for a fairly small price :)

Came for the hostel, could do everything through them for a great price. They even provided goggles for the sand buggying! Big TVs in room was a great change from normal hostels. Hot water and clean rooms!

We ended up eating and booking a dune buggy tour at other hostels (staff told us there were no 2-hour dune tours anywhere as it was a holiday but we found one at Bananas hostel). Our room and bathroom were tolerable for the price. Lots of small insects on the floor and smears on the wall made me glad to... More

It was ok, the food was nice but you don't have to come eat here to get a smile from any employers. Very cheap LUNCH offers!!

The family, who runs the restaurant opened up a hostel adjacent to it about a month ago. Stayed there for two nights and were quite satisfied. Nice and clean rooms for a decent price. Staff was friendly but a bit pushy regarding tours/general sales.
