As mentioned by someone else, discount price for 5 star review. Location good but, hard to have a bad location in Huacachina. Restaurant attached up front has good food and the room we had was cleanish as far as we could tell BUT...
As ridiculous as this sound ( I seriously never thought I'd ever write a review like this) the front desk staff (one guy at least) eats the food guests keep in the kitchen. We had two boxes of leftovers along with a bag of breakfast groceries get taken/eaten. We figured it was the guy at the front and suggested a pen in the kitchen (which is very poorly stocked and always filthy) to label food to avoid mix ups. He pulled the I don't understand English card even though his English was passable when we checked in.
That night, like an HOUR after we told him about the missing food he comes out of the kitchen with our bottle of wine in his hands. As soon as he saw us he tried duck away and again played dumb when we said that it was ours. Talking to a few others were not the only ones with missing stuff!
While missing food is more annoying than anything else, the fact that the staff is taking guest belongings is enough reason for me to advise other travellers to avoid this hostel!
